Records of Note: August 2010

August 3, 2010

I didn’t do one of these last month because, frankly, there wasn’t much worthwhile coming out. There’s a bunch of notable stuff on the way in August, though, including the third album from obscure chillwave/glo-fi band Arcade Fire. And may god have mercy on my soul. Check it out:

August 3:
Arcade FireThe Suburbs (Merge) [Pitchfork Reviews Reviews]
WavvesKing of the Beach (Fat Possum)
VersusOn the Ones and Threes (Merge)

The Kestrels

August 10:
The Kestrels – 7″ (NoYes)
Eli “Paperboy” ReedCome and Get It (Capitol)

August 17:
SuperchunkNo Pocky For Kitty and On the Mouth remastered (Merge)
NOFXThe Longest EP (Fat)
ChromeoBusiness Casual (Vice)

August 24:
WomenPublic Strain (Flemish Eye/Jagjaguwar)
!!!Strange Weather, Isn’t It (Warp)
Grass WidowPast Time (Kill Rock Stars)

August 31:

Did I miss some? Almost certainly! Leave a comment if your favourite band has a new release out this month and nobody told me.

    Women. Yes. August is the European release date for that, it’s not being released in North America until September. Officially…

    And for whatever reason, I’m glad Chromeo exists.

      True, but the 24th is also the digital release date for iTunes and such.

    Some good stuff coming out this month! Oh man, I love me some Superchunk.

    Also, I hope Arcade Fire and Chromeo decide to do European/UK tours.

      They both are, according to their Myspaces. Arcade Fire is in England later this month, and Chromeo is there in November.

        Frig, Arcade Fire aren’t going to be anywhere super close and I have a wedding to attend that weekend. However, Chromeo will be in my town on a Friday night! Excellent news. Thanks for that!
