Album releases: June 2009

What to watch out for (or avoid!) in June...



Iggy Pop
Preliminaires
Release: 2 June 2009 - Merge Records
"The ultimate punk goes all French jazz on us, but, bizarrely, c’est magnifique!" - NME



Eels
Hombre Lobo: 12 Songs Of Desire
Release: 2 June 2009 - Vagrant Records
"Grief may not be so closely explored but unrequited love certainly is and the glimmering acoustic guitars and distorted, bluesy grooves sound uncannily similar to much of their earlier work. " -
The Guardian



Taking Back Sunday
New Again

Release: 2 June 2009 - WEA/Reprise
"Three years and one new guitarist later, the princes of emo return with a fourth full-length that focuses on roaring arenas as much as on two-timing lovers." -
Spin Magazine


Placebo
Battle For The Sun

Release: 8 June 2009 - Vagrant Records
"Lacking lyrics as memorable as 2006's Meds, Battle for the Sun is heavier but duller." -
Spin Magazine



Kasabian
West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum
Release: 9 June 2009 - Red Int/Red Inc
"Kasabian are clearly passionate about their music and are capable of creating exciting, innovative music. If only they’d shut up once in a while." - Clashmusic



The Lemonheads
Varshons

Release: 23 June 2009 - The End Records
"Evan Dando and company's follow-up to their self-titled 2006 comeback album sees them covering artists spanning the musical spectrum." -
PrefixMag



The Mars Volta
Octahedron

Release: 23 June 2009 - Warner
"while ‘Octahedron’ as a whole is passably interesting, it just doesn't reach a level of experimentation that we've come to expect from the band." -
Clashmusic



Wilco
Wilco (The Album)

Release: 30 June 2009 - Nonesuch
"Listen to it, and try not to smile. That’s what the healing power of music should sound like. " -
Chicago Tribune
