New. Release. Tuesday.

It's a quiet night around these parts, y'all. We blame (what else?) the Super Bowl. After all, judging from the reaction we got on Twitter after mentioning a certain rock 'n' roll band and a certain halftime show, you folks were tuned in. Well, hopefully you didn't party too hard, because we've got new releases! A darn fine week chock full of 'em, if we do say so ourselves. And we do. In fact, just did. Wow, still typing! Look:

Gil Scott-Heron
Hot Chip
Massive Attack
The Watson Twins
Allison Moorer
Dave Matthew/Tim Reynolds (live)
Ben + Vesper
Neil Diamond (live)
...and more!

New. Release. Tuesday.

We'll be the first to admit that this isn't the biggest or best new-release week in recent memory. But! Two great rock bands lead the pack below. Thanks, Midlake and The Soft Pack, for being awesome. Some other interesting stuff below as well, just not a ton of releases in general this week. Quality, folks, not quantity. And hey, when you've got the Mr. Clean of guitar virtuosos on your side, the week is not lost! Or, something? Phew:

The Soft Pack
The Album Leaf
Lil Wayne (the infamous Rebirth rock album)
Nick Jonas
George Winston
Joe Satriani (live)
...and more!
