Our recommended releases for 12 August start with Thee Oh See’s The Weird Exits, on which the guitars manage to be both huge and ethereal all at the same time; The Amity Affliction’s This Could Be Heartbreak is certainly their most revealing release yet; legendary psych-rockers Acid Mothers Temple serve up another hefty slice of anthemic jams with Wake To The New Dawn Of Another Astro Era; of Montreal return with their 14th album, which is as reliably great as the other 13! Marconi Union blend dub, electronica, jazz and ambience in Ghost Station, further refining their very individual sound. Colours Are Fading Fast is a beautifully presented 3-disc retrospective that neatly documents how important Lauren Auerbach & Bert Jansch would become to each other. Lonely The Brave’s new EP, Dust And Bones, contains two new compositions and, as is their wont, a left-field cover, in this case Pink Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb’.
Release of the week is The Pineapple Thief’s Your Wilderness, which lyrically follows the journey of a parent and child and chronicles love, fear, estrangement and, ultimately, reconciliation as their lives unfold.
