This week’s new discoveries from the great beyond:
1. Spoon: They Want My Soul (Loma Vista, Aug. 5)
Twenty years in (!), the Austin mainstays move back to a major label but retain their sinewy groove.
2. The Unicorns: Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone? (independent release, July 29)
Reissue of highly underrated art-pop LP from 2003. Digital out now (via iTunes, etc.), vinyl in October.
3. New God: Firework (Yellow K, July 29)
A subtle, art-damaged, chamber-pop stunner, Animal Collective if that band had laid off the PEDs.
