Now Downloading: New Releases 10.19.10

And now we move into the time of reissues and compilations. We'll return you back to your regularly schedule new release schedule in January after these couple months with holiday fodder. [There are some new releases to poke at, though. The Extra Lens, Brent Amaker & the Rodeo, Oh Land, and a load of reissues and/or compilations from Bob Dylan, The Church, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Robyn Hitchcock's The Soft Boys.]

Playlist: New Releases 10.19.10

The Extra Lens - Undercard
Stream / Purchase [mp3]

Back in 2002, The Mountain Goats' John Darnielle and Nothing Painted Blue's Franklin Bruno got together as The Extra Glens and released the little heard gem Martial Arts Weekend, which sort served as a practice run for the Goats' move to 4AD where they became an actual band and not a lo-fi acoustic based experiment. It's been eight years and now that the Goats moving to Merge Records, it's the perfect time to revisit the collaboration (minus a 'G' of course). If Undercard is serving the same purpose as their first collaboration (which I highly doubt), John Darnielle is bringing back some of the dark humor that the band has missed in their past three releases. And, as a bonus, we get the occasional harmony vocal from Bruno, which is an oddity for a Darnielle sung song, and something that's easy to get used to.
