Recommended New Arrivals: October 30 2015

 

My most listened-to release of the week so far is the debut LP from Germany's Diät. There's a lot going on here so I feel like I'm still digesting, but this is already shaping up to be one of my favorite releases of 2015:

 

Next up is the long-awaited vinyl release of the new Night Birds LP, Mutiny at Muscle Beach! Night birds have a pretty well-established sound by this point that they don't deviate from too much here, but everything feels more well-developed and streamlined, and after a few listens I think I like this even better than their previous LP, Born to Die in Suburbia.

I've also really been enjoying the new Spray Paint LP. It's kind of tough to keep up with a band whose release come so fast and furious (this is their second LP of 2015), but I like when bands develop incrementally as it kind of focuses your attention on small evolutions in their sound.
