This is a round-up of the week’s new albums, expanded reissues and/or box sets, appearing each Monday on Slicing Up Eyeballs. All releases due out this Friday unless noted. May also include some other titles released in recent weeks but not previously featured.


Greg Dulli

RELEASE: Random Desire 
BACKSTORY: The leader of The Afghan Whigs (and The Twilight Singers and The Gutter Twins) this week releases what’s being billed as his debut solo album, because 2005’s Amber Headlights apparently does not count.


Guided By Voices

RELEASE: Surrender Your Poppy Field
BACKSTORY: After releasing three LPs in 2019, Robert Pollard’s mighty GBV returns this week with another brand-new album, allegedly his 104th. It’s a 15-track record with songs like “Arthur Has Business Elsewhere” and “Volcano.”


Various artists

BACKSTORY: Cherry Red Records this week releases its latest imagined sequel to the NME’s C86 cassette compilation, a 3-disc, 63-track box set, featuring 1990 releases from The Charlatans, Spiritualized, Lush and more.
