springtigersBradford Cox, of Deerhunter fame, has a new album, Logos, out today under his musical project and moniker Atlas Sound. The track below, "Walkabout," is one of the albums highlights, with Animal Collective's Noah Lennox (aka, Panda Bear) pitching in with his famously echoy, dreamy vocal delivery and feel good electronic musical arrangements. The song is clearly one of the best indie duets of 2009.

Next up is a catchy "new to us" indie pop band called Spring Tigers, who just so happen to be from Athens, Georgia, the birthplace of Bradford Cox. Today also marks the official release of Sufjan Stevens' BQE (nope, nothing to do with barbequing), which is basically an all orchestrated LP - and a good one at that. But there are still many of us who really hope he will pick back up on his '50 state' album concept; even a total of 10 would be an accomplishment. The idea came about in reaction to both critical and fan reaction to the albums Illinoise and Greetings From Michigan. (In the meantime, we started a playlist series that includes songs about states called the State of Music. More on that soon, so stay tuned).

Today's other indie releases include new material from Sufjan Stevens, Spiral Stairs, Port O'Brien, Neon Indian, F**k Buttons, The Hush Now, Abdelkbir Marchane & Ahmed Baqbou, Jon & Roy, Hawnay Troof, The Parlour Steps, The Wheat Pool and others. Some of the albums in this mix were released last week.
