New Music Tuesday: Toro Y Moi, Josh Ritter, The Cave Singers, Nirvana

Even though that picture of Slash and his guitar I took a couple weeks ago has nothing to do with any of the new albums coming out this week I felt it appropriate as it conveys how awesome this weeks new releases are. Why so awesome? Glad you asked... two words, the Monkees! Just kidding, they were not that good. Just kidding they were pretty awesome. Especially for a sorta fake band that was cast, as actors... for a TV show, they were excellent. Daydream Believer, Last Train to Clarksville... so good.

Today's most excellent release is Toro Y Moi's Underneath The Pine. I have been hearing for a couple of weeks now and I love it. Also The Cave Singers No Witch should be on your must have list, if you have one of those. If not I suggest you make one. And stick to it.
