Here are our favourite new tracks from the past seven days:

Radiohead – Man of War

One of three tracks unofficially released before now, Man Of War appears on OKNOTOK, the reissue of OK Computer, released today.  Video is reassuringly creepy

 

Fischerspooner – Have Fun Tonight

First new music in eight years from these lads.  The new album, SIR, was co-written and co-produced by Michael Stipe, and will be with us in September

 

Filthy Friends – The Arrival

…And in further R.E.M.-related news, check out the new single from Peter Buck, Bill Rieflin, Scott McCaughey, Corin Tucker, and Kurt Bloch, AKA Filthy Friends.  The album Invitation is out August 25th

 

Hercules & Love Affair feat. Sharon Van Etten – Omnion

Great stuff from all concerned.  Title track of H&LA’s new album, out September 1st

 

Guided By Voices – Just To Show You

Great to have them back with new music.  Their 25th studio album How Do you Spell Heaven, will be out August 25th.  This is the lead single

 

New Album Of The Week:
Jeff Tweedy – Together At Last

Where Wilco frontman and all-round American hero Tweedy presents acoustic takes of tracks from his back catalogue.  Just him and an acoustic guitar.  Wonderful late-night listening.

 

Reissue Of The Week
Prince & The Revolution – Purple Rain

We’ve already discussed this masterpiece here. A bigger deal than the Radiohead OK Computer reissue, we reckon.
