This Just In: Local & Abroad

There are some great new local releases in this week, as well as a diverse array of other sounds from all over the place.

After releasing the excellent Innovator 7″on Discosoma Records about a year ago, Plains’ highly anticipated full-length debut is finally available! Beached Miami had some wonderful things to say, calling it “a rare combination of technical savvy, good taste, and talent — the humble trinity that early indie rock, post-punk, and grunge-era bands all thrived on… PLAINS is the rare record sans a skippable song, a collection of intelligent rock… a collection of songs that sound checks many while mimicking none. If PLAINS were released at any point in [Michael] McGinnis’s career, it would be a major achievement. As a debut, it is astonishing.”

The Wonderful Sound Of Induce! – “Pretty” b/w “Downtown Saturday Night” 12″:
“If you like that retro disco type of sound mixed with a little bit of a modern twist, then you’re going to love The Wonderful Sound Of Induce. This release is taken from the upcoming album Halfway Between Me And You, the new single ‘Pretty’ b/w ‘Get Down Saturday Night’ has already become a favorite of fans and friends alike… ‘Pretty’ is an uptempo Boogie jam that sounds like the song Prince never made. While ‘Get Down Saturday Night,’ produced by longtime friend and collaborator, Manuvers, is a cover of the underground Disco classic originally performed by Oliver Cheatham and more recently popularized by the hands of Daft Punk.”

Black Milk & Jack White -“Brain” b/w “Royal Mega” 7″:
“Third Man Records is proud to announce their first hip hop release as none other than the inimitable Black Milk. Recorded at Third Man Studio in Nashville and co-produced by Black Milk and Jack White, these two songs feature Milk’s deadly live band accented by the finest of Nashville’s horn musicians for a truly unique and impressive outing. Out of Detroit, Black Milk is one the most vital hip hop artists around. More than just an MC, Milk is brilliant producer who’s worked with hip hop notables from J Dilla, Slum Village, and Lloyd Banks to his recent collaborative work with Sean Price and Guilty Simpson in Random Axe. ‘Brain’ and ‘Royal Mega’ are funk and soul imbibed slices of classic skull snappin hip hop.”
