There was so much good new music out of Seattle this week

Can we just take a second and talk about all the great local music that came out in the last week? Programming the Locals Only playlist is going to be a cakewalk this week.

SISTERS: You've got to love it when you see the good ones get everything they deserve. A massive congratulations to SISTERS on their announcement earlier this week that not only do they have a new full-length album Wait Don't Wait coming out later this year (Oct. 13), but also that it will be released by the good folks at Tender Loving Empire. 

They celebrated by releasing this fantastic new track "Heart Beats." 

Chris Staples: I won't rest till everybody knows about Chris Staples. If he just keeps writing songs the way he has been then it shouldn't take long. This week he released a live video of his beautiful new song "Spinning Wheel".

The Kingdom Boogie Band: Less swamp/devil music and much more boogie. I loved The Kingdom Boogie Band when they were still called Bigfoot Wallace and His Wicked Sons and this new album Commonwealth Boogie has my hooked.

Briana Marela: The new album from Briana Marela is out today on Jagjaguwar.

Car Seat Headrest: I can't even believe how good this is. Not that it should be a surprise. Pretty much everything Car Seat Headrest does is perfect.

This is a one day release with Bandcamp donating profits to transgender rights. So if you like the song be sure to get it today or you might miss out. $2 is worth it for sure.

Wild Ones: My favorite Portland band Wild Ones just announced their new album Mirror Touch, due out October 6th via Topshelf Records. You can hear the first single and total summer jam "Parethesia" here.

Fruit Juice: Last Friday, Olympia band Fruit Juice release their debut full length album Eat You Up. It's a little weird and totally awesome, just like the band. If you've ever seen them live you know exactly what I'm taking about.

Kris Orlowski: We already covered it earlier this week, but it is worth circling back to the cover of "Love" by Lana Del Rey that Kris Orlowski just released.
