What a weird release week: three dramatic changes in musical style coming from PJ Harvey, Iron and Wine, and Múm… it’s like The Twilight Zone!!!

The highly-anticipated and long-awaited follow-up to Reconstruction Site is another lycially satisfying record by The Weakerthans.

PJ Harvey: White Chalk
Hauntingly gorgeous!!! PJ Harvey has taken a brand new direction on White Chalk: musically, the angry rock guitar melodies are replaced by haunting piano notes whereas vocally, her commanding deep voice is replaced by mesmerizing soft tones as well as unusual high pitches.

When Under Ether [wicked-cool song]
White Chalk is out this week in the UK, but it won't be out till next week in North America
