Doves - Some Cities (Capitol)
Album number 3 from the Mancunian trio formerly known as Sub Sub. Released last week in the UK, the reviews on the BBC website are all glowing so far, though a couple posts alluded that it probably doesn't top Lost Souls. (No surprise there)
The Mars Volta - Frances the Mute (Universal)
Shivvy Shiv from woxy.com sez this album is prog-a-licious, featuring 15+ minute epic tunes complete with multiple 'movements', just like your Dad's old Yes albums.
Ivy - In the Clear (Nettwerk)
Apparently this is their 5th album?? I guess I missed the last 3 or 4...oh well, I don't remember them varying their sound much, so I probably didn't miss a whole lot.
