Playlist: New Releases 07.20.10

The Books - The Way Out
Stream / Purchase [mp3]

The Books - The Way OutThis geek duo specialize in experimental sampling, but, up until now, have been a hard nut to crack. The Way Out, their first album in five years -- Lost And Safe being the last, samples self-help books and ends up being their most accessible release to date. And it's damn funny to boot.

Mountain Man - Made the Harbor
Stream / Purchase [mp3]

Mountain Man- Made the HarborI feel at odds trying to review Made at Harbor. The female folk trio's latest feels like something that should be kept to yourself, played in private, not shouted from the rooftops. The hushed harmonies were recorded in an old ice cream parlor, and the plaintively strummed chords sound straight off the Appalachian mountains.
