new music tuesday

here’s what i’m buying tuesday april 12:

jason isbell and the 400 unit here we rest.  i love isbell’s songwriting, so buying this disc is a no-brainer.  i’m not sure if he’ll ever top his work with the truckers on decoration day (see “outfit”), but “alabama pines” and “codeine” are worth the price of admission.

foo fighters wasting light.  it’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since nirvana released nevermind.  for this album, dave grohl and company get back to doing what they do best – rocking – with nevermind producer butch vig.  the result is the best album they’ve made since their first two.

tv on the radio nine types of light.  tv on the radio are by far one of my favorite bands of the last decade.  on nine types of light, the band slows it down, gets focused, and makes some beautiful music.  it’s more of a background disc than a party disc like 2008’s dear science, but it’s one you want in your collection.
