Occupied With the Unspoken

(July 24)

More majestic electronic craziness from these Thrill Jockey signees. There's a release show for this one at

on Aug. 1.

Raymond Byron & the White Freighter
, Little Death Shaker (Sept. 4)

We sorta expected this album from the Castanets' frontman to be a twangy Americana album, but it rocks really, really hard.

The Helio Sequence, Negotiations (Sept. 11)

Advance single "October" was a pretty nice whistle-wetter for this longtime Portland duo—still waiting to hear the full disc.

Menomena, Moms (Sept. 18)

The band's first release without Brent Knopf is definitely a bit different, with heart-on-sleeve lyrics and a bit more bite than usual.

Brainstorm, Heat Waves (Oct. 2)

We've actually been sneaking listens to this one for a while. Groovy.
