Today is a big release day—there's new music from Russian Circles, the Dismemberment Plan, Pelican, for example. But there's also an impressive amount of new tunes from right here in the Pacific Northwest! Here are six local records, out today, that should be on your radar (whether it's for loving or loathing):
The wait is over, folk fans! The Head and the Fart Heart (sorry, couldn't help it) release Let's Be Still, the highly anticipated follow-up to their 2011 self-titled debut. You can hear the full album here, and later this week, on October 17, the band is doing an AMA on Reddit. They're also performing their song "Shake" on The Late Show with David Letterman tomorrow night. Have a listen:
Another much talked about Seattle release is Pearl Jam's Lightning Bolt, their first album since 2009's Backspacer.
