It's Wednesday and, like it or not, the week isn't going anywhere any time soon. If you find yourself sitting at your place of work or wherever and thinking that maybe a little mid-week pick me up would be nice, or if you simply have run out of new music to check out, then look no further than slightly below. Fortunately for the weary workers and music cravers alike, the internet has offered up a solid hookup, providing new albums from Chuck Ragan, Fireworks, The Hold Steady, and Tokyo Police Club a full week before their commercial releases.
Fireworks - Oh, Common Life
The Michigan pop-punkers lean a little more heavily on the former with enough trace elements of the latter to provide a bouncy, impending spring soundtrack that won't have your bros shooting you questionable glances. Check it out over at Red Bull.
Chuck Ragan - Till Midnight
The Hold Steady - Teeth Dreams
If you can navigate your way through iTunes intricate preview streamer, then you can check out the hard-hitting alternative affair from the Brooklyn outfit.
Tokyo Police Club - Forcefield
After four years of silence, the group that is neither from Tokyo nor contains members of any police force return with a solid effort that's a little bit indie a good bit pop-rock. Stream it over at The New York Times.
