Antony and The Johnsons – Swanlight LP

More new releases after the jump.
Small Black/Washed Out – Split 7”
For those of you surfing the chillwave, WVUM favorites Washed Out and Small Black have released a new split single remixing each other’s music. Sounds like neon sunglasses.
The Books – The Way Out LP/CD
The new full length from high minded (see: nerdy) electronic pop composers The Books fully lives up to the duo’s reputation for experimental yet completely accessible songwriting. True blue ballads, upbeat glitch-tinged numbers, bizarre samples: this one’s got it all.
AIDS Wolf – Very Friendly LP
And now for something completely different (yet strangely familiar). AIDS Wolf has released a new 12” single covering Throbbing Gristle‘s classic “Very Friendly.” The EP features five different renditions of the song “remixed” by noise luminaries such as Weasel Walter, John Olson (Wolf Eyes), Nautical Almanac, and 2010 drone sweethearts Emeralds.
