NEW RELEASES: MISTAKES & REGRETS.....

Big, big week for new releases, should be good for the industry with all the JT's, Beyonce's, Chingy, Fergie (AKA crap), Jewel, Elton John, Scissor Sisters, Christina's, and that Ludacris fool out there, plus some heavy hitters this week. Here's a look at some of the former FUTURE SOUNDS bands putting out new discs:

The Dears: Gang Of Losers (Arts & Crafts)(FS17)- Canadian outfit with the voice of Morrissey.

The Decemberists: The Crane Wife (Capitol) (FS08, FS11)- major label debut, we'll see...

The Hold Steady: Boys and Girls in AM (FS13) - Those lyrics, that voice, haven't heard it yet, but could be good.

Honeycut: The Day I Turned To Glass (Quannum) (FS25) - Ok, so it came out before I got around to putting the latest FS out, but here's an act to watch with a big radio hit potential in 'Shadows'.

Jet: Shine On (Atlantic) (FS07)- I had them on prior to the JET explosion, or curse on the Earth as I'd later regret. Jet, Kasabian, Killers released on the same day?? Great planning there, gobble up each other's spending.

Kasabian: Empire (RCA)(FS09, FS18)- Another band that had so much promise, then jumped shark on me. Worst thing was finally seeing them live at SXSW and being extremely let down by their live show, or lack thereof. Oh well...See for yourself tonight on Letterman.

The Killers: Sam's Town (Island/Mercury)(FS02, FS03, FS04, FS06) - Couldn't let our former "friends" go unnoticed today, after all the blood sweat and tears, I hope Mr Bighead continues to do well. Here's to you guys, hope you are enjoying the good life.

Mohair: Small Talk (Grunion Records)(FS21)- Amazing band that blows away that new Snow Patrol yawner.

My Morning Jacket: Okonokos (ATO)(FS06)- Double live album from a fantastic band. Had to have at least one former FS act of the group still represent with some integrity.

Adem: Love And Other Planets (Domino Recordings) (FS12) - I have no idea what to expect from this release, been seeing some lukewarm reviews, but that doesn't mean anything.

Brazil - The Philosophy of Velocity (Immortal)(FS13)

Citizens Here And Abroad - Waving, Not Drowning (Turn Records) (FS17)

Cut Copy - Fabriclive 29 (Fabric)(FS20)



SOME OTHER RECOMMENDED RELEASES:
Solomon Burke: Nashville (Shout Factory) - What can you say about this legend of soul. The big man brings it every time.
Grizzly Bear - Yellow Horse (Warp) - Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous!
Lupe Fiasco: Food & Liquor (Atlantic) - Song 'Kick Push' reminds me of early TRIBE CALLED QUEST, really clean and loose.
Whitest Boy Alive: Dreams (Asound-Bubbles)- Side project from Erlend øye of Kings of Convenience.
Akron Family - Meek Warrior (Young God Recordings)
Joseph Arthur - Nuclear Daydream (Lonely Astronaut)
Big Sleep - Son Of The Tiger (Frenchkiss)
Bonnie Prince Billy - The Letting Go (Drag City)
Jon Cleary - Alligator Lips and Dirty Rice (MRI)
Cold War Kids - Robbers & Cowards (Downtown)
Good Shoes - All In My Head (Brille)
Jazzanova - Broad Casting (SKV)
The Kooks - Inside In/Inside Out (Astralwerks)
