First Listen: New Releases for 16 February

A really busy week of releases, and I have to do this the quick hit way today.

Must Listens This Week:

* Polica/s t a r g a z e - Music for the Long Emergency (weird and wonderful)
* Geowulf - Great Big Blue (sort of like an edgier Wolf Alice at times)
* Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy (Car Seat Headrest is easily the most perpetually underappreciated act going right now)
* Kellen of Troy - Posthumous Release
* Fischerspooner - Sir (produced by Michael Stipe, might be my favorite of the week)
* Loma - Loma

Other Solid Releases:

* Kronos Quartet and Laurie Anderson - Landfall
* Walter Martin - Reminiscence Bar and Grill (Walkmen lead singer, pretty interesting listen)
* Horsehoes and Hand Grenades - Ode
* U.S. Girls - In a Poem Unlimited
* Shannon and the Clams - Onion
* I'm With Her - See You Around
* Superchunk - What a Time to Be Alive

Be Wary:

* Born Ruffians - Uncle, Duke, and The Chief
* Brandi Carlile - By the Way, I Forgive You
* Ought - Room Inside the World (biggest disappointment of 2018 so far)
* Marlon Williams - Make Way for Love


* Pinky Pinky - Hot Tears
* Valerie June - For the Loved and Loveless
* Ride - Tomorrow's Shore
* Belle & Sebastian - How to Solve Our Human Problems (Part 3)

Also Out:
