Headlined by the much-hyped LP by The Black Keys and an equally hyped up for new album for Swans, this week might just have the metaphorical "show" stolen by none other than The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, with their latest, Days Of Abandon. Don't forget the newest LP from Little Dragon has arrived, as well. Yes, it's a wonderful time for music, is it not?

Below you'll find a list of key albums/singles released today, along with links to our reviews (the ones in blue). Due to our review policy (up to two weeks before release, and in some cases the week following the release), a lot of the albums/singles won't have reviews attached to them, but hopefully this will act as a handy shopping list to take to your local record store.
