The side project of Interpol guitarist Daniel Kessler with experimental NYC musician Joseph Fraioli.

Breakfast In Fur, Flyaway Garden (Bar/None Records)
This group is named after a surrealist sculpture by French artist André Breton, and started as a bedroom pop project of Dan Wolfe, who was eventually joined by vocalist Kaitlin Van Pelt, guitaritst Mike Hollis, multi-instrumentalist Matt Ross and drummer Chris Walker to release their debut, a mix of pastoral folk, dreamy psychedelia and pop, electronica and even a touch of prog. Take a listen to the lovely, trippy, folked-out single "Portrait" below. 

John Carpenter, Lost Themes (Sacred Bones)
You know him for his film directing — he's behind Halloween, Escape From New York, They Live and Assault on Precinct 13 among others — but did you know he also composed the scores to these films, too? This is his debut solo album.
