Greetings, music fans. We have an extra-long New Tunes Tuesday post for you this time around thanks to the oodles of great music being released this week, so let's dig in.
In the singer-songwriter world, a biggie out today is the new album from New York singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens. Fans of Godspeed You! Black Emperor will probably recognize some of the music on their latest release, Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress, since the Canadian post-rock band used to play it live on tour (back then it was informally titled Behemoth).
Also out this week is new stuff from Death Cab for Cutie, Chilean "cosmic" band Follakzoid, New York electro-pop musician Jerry Paper, Baltimore experimental pop band Lower Dens, and New York composer Missy Mazzoli.
