This week’s new discoveries from the great beyond:
1. Braid: No Coast (Topshelf, July 8)
Emo vets adapt to the times by staying pretty much the same. Surprisingly vital, subtly victorious.
2. Shabazz Palaces: Lese Majesty (Sub Pop, July 29)
Seattle avant-rap kings offer up a truly confounding sophomore LP. Some of these samples give me chills.
3. Wolves in the Throne Room: Celestite (Artemisia, July 8)
Strings, synths, cavernous drone: Can we finally stop calling these guys “black metal”?
