New releases: Liars, Broken Bells, Titus and more

After a thin release schedule last week, Tuesday is bursting with new albums. I suspect Gorillaz Plastic Beach and the self titled debut by Broken Bells (the collaboration between Danger Mouse and the Shins’ James Mercer) will get the most attention. And, of course, there’s the Pavement retrospective Quarantine the Past.

My picks of the week are the Liars’ Sisterworld and Besnard Lakes, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night. Other notable releases: Titus Andronicus, The Monitor; Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, The Brutalist Bricks; Frightened Rabbit, The Winter of Mixed Drinks; Black Rebel Motorcyle Club, Beat the Devil’s Tattoo;  jj, No. 3; the Morning Benders, Big Echo; and Alberta Cross, Broken Side of Time (vinyl).

Albatross – The Besnard Lakes

A More Perfect Union – Titus Andronicus

The Mighty Sparrow – Ted Leo

Swim Until You Can’t See Land – Frightened Rabbit
