New Releases: August 18

I feel like the music industry is holding back for a couple weeks in anticipation of the new Jay-Z album, because the past couple of weeks have been disappointing.  This Tuesday’s releases are no different.  There are a bunch of Muse re-issues on vinyl, and then Brendan Benson’s solo album, the new Third Eye Blind, Jack Penate and Jay Reatard, and another capitalization on Michael Jackson’s passing.

Good luck sifting through the chaff to find something you actually want.  As always, there are a couple of tracks to jar your collective memories after the list of songs.

Brendan Benson – My Old Familiar Friend
Colin Hay – American Sunshine
GWAR – Lust In Space
Jake Penate – Everything is New
Jay Reatard – Watch Me Fall
Joe Henry – Blood From Stars
Michael Jackson – The Ultimate Collection
Monster Ballads: The Ultimate Set
MUTEMATH – Armistice
Pissed Jeans – King of Jeans
Sean Paul – Imperial Blaze
Sister Hazel – Release
The Antlers – Hospice
Third Eye Blind – Ursa Major

Did I forget something you were looking for?  Take a look at the week’s full list of releases over at Amazon.  Have an excellent week, y’all.

Colin Hay – Overkill (mp3) from Scrubs: Soundtrack

Third Eye Blind – Blinded (When I See You) (mp3) from Out of the Vein
