Not a whole lot doing this week, but I do have two fairly minor releases that might spark your interest.

Dive got a copy of Josephine, the new one from Indiana’s Magnolia Electric Co.,and we’ve actually liked it a lot.

It’s pretty standard stuff, melodically driven folk rock wrapped mostly around break up songs. On paper it kind of sounds like every folk rock record ever made, and it kind of is in reality. But it’s well made, and the melodies are pretty great. Additionally the band plays tonight at Local 506. Show starts at 9 p.m. and costs $10.

On the subject of pretty standard but still satisfying folk rock, Wye Oak also has a new one called The Knot. Wye Oak is a duo from Baltimore that adds big distorted riffs to traditional folk rock

While it can occasionally become innocuous the duo does know its way around a melody, and every once in a while they stumble upon a pretty great lyric as well.

That’s about all I’ve got for this week. Sorry It couldn’t be more exciting.
