The following albums dropped today and are available in your local trendy record stores or on digital download.
Arcade Fire “Reflektor”
The Canadian collective release their follow-up to the Grammy Award-winning album The Suburbs. The buildup of hype and hysteria over this release is enough to make Daft Punk jealous. Things have gotten so crazy for the group that Rolling Stone calls the most important band of the last decade; that they had to change their name to the Reflektors temporarily. The Reflektors have gigs scheduled here in L.A. tonight at Capitol Records and Thursday at the Palladium.
