New Releases: August 25

This week actually isn’t a horrific one for new music – a couple of good releases, some mediocre, some classics and some has-beens.  It looks, actually, like what each week should look like, in contrast to the schlock that’s been foisted upon the public for the past few weeks.

As a member of the music buying public, I’m personally going to purchase the Imogen Heap album, along with the new efforts from Arctic Monkeys and Fun, and Blitzen Trapper’s new/old EP.  That’s not to say you should copy me, or even that the following list will contain anything which tickles your personal fancy.  Check out the complete list of what’s due out this week here, and get a couple tracks after the list like we usually do.  Have a great week, and I hope you all find something to love.
