Pretty slim pickings the week before the June 10 flood. Raising the Fawn’s Slight of Hand is the most notable disc, and I didn’t even know it was coming out until Stereogum mentioned it last week. The noisy Broken Social Scene offshoot’s latest album is, the band claims, their most poppy and accessible — I don’t know if I quite agree with that, but it’s certainly good.

Raising the Fawn – “River of Gold”: mp3

EDIT: (Sleight of Hand is out July 17 on Sonic Unyon)
