Calexico - Garden Ruin (Quarterstick)
Hot off last year's collaboration with Iron & Wine, the Calexico boys are back on their own with the proper follow-up to 2003's Feast of Wire.
Eagles of Death Metal - Death By Sexy (AntAcidAudio)
The Dream Boys dynamic duo is back. This Joshua Homme produced album sounds exactly the way God intended live rock and roll to sound: raw, sleazy, and spiffy. It's more hook laden than your old job at the bait shop. Put your dancing shoes on. (Amazon.com)
Whaaaa? This is got to be the lamest promo copy I've seen in quite some time. Hopefully this record doesn't suck nearly as bad as this sales pitch.
