Got any plans for the weekend? To get you in the mood for XPNFest, here’s a look at a few of the MANY new albums out this week: Indie heroes Death Cab for Cutie return to the realm of punchy, guitar-based rock with their 10th full-length, Asphalt Meadows. New Zealand’s The Beths cook up another effervescent set on Expert in a Dying Field, their third studio album. Stepping away from his longtime group for a solo debut, Marcus Mumford confronts past traumas on (self-titled). Minneapolis-via-Nairobi singer Ondara is joined by members of Dawes on Spanish Villager No. 3, which continues the narrative of the artist’s recent graphic novel.

With a sound that sits squarely between ‘70s folk-rock and ‘80s bombast, Lissie makes a thundering return on Carving Canyons. Hailing from upstate New York, Danielle Ponder makes a powerful impression on her debut album, Some of Us Are Brave. Ahead of their XPNFest-opening performance, Philly faves The Tisburys channel the Stones, the ‘Mats and more on Exile on Main Street. As its name suggests, Words & Music, May 1965 unearths over a dozen of Lou Reed’s home-recorded demos for what would later become Velvet Underground classics.
