Quiet in the Valley, On the Shore the End Begins, & the Electric Six is the new album from Jim Ward (guitarist for At the Drive-In, Sparta, and Sleepercar). According to the Spinner description, the album is a “collection of masterful tunes.” You can check it out for yourself here.

The new one from Mariachi El Bronx (a.k.a the Bronx with Mariachi) is called Mariachi El Bronx II and it’s available to stream over at Spinner. I heard some of the songs on Tuesday when the band played an in-store at the job, and they’re pretty solid. Give it a listen here.

Legendary Weapons is the newest offering from legendary hip-hop outfit Wu-Tang Clan or Wu-Tang (as noted on the release). The fourteen-track album is out now, but if you’re on the fence about it, you can listen to it beforehand here.
