Just when you thought September had nothing to offer but a line-up of ad nauseum television programming and disgusting amounts of pumpkin spice lattes, let this week’s Hitting Shelves be the one thing to keep you optimistic for a more fulfilling fall.

Since I’m really pressed for time today, I decided to save myself the trouble of stressing myself out with the writing portion of Hitting Shelves and just present to you the releases. While I can’t guarantee that next week will be any less busy, this at least buys you one week without having to read my long-winded previews.

In any case, let’s hope you’ll go in with good faith as a listener and reader and just try these albums out blindly. I promise, you will love what there is to discover amongst this week’s wave of releases. Enjoy.

From Saddle Creek to Epitaph and beyond, the artists unleashing their albums this week are flawless in design and intriguing in execution. Animal Collective reminds us that music can be an interactive art while still attempting to inject a large dose of psychedelia into the mainstream with Centipede Hz. Earth goddesses Azure Ray are slipping into something more spacey while yawning across measures with a familiar ethereal feel in As Above So Below. Canadian punk rockers Propagandhi are dishing out violent spools of downtuned guitar licks and two step drumming that dare to defy and break each bar with Failed States. Even Australian folk siren Karlie Bruce is turning it up a notch with her somber jazz-fueled debut Paperback Lover

To make up for the lack of activity over Labor Day weekend, I’ve decided to stack this week’s Hitting Shelves especially high to compensate. There should be plenty of albums to keep you busy well into next week. Enjoy.
