Modest Mouse cover.jpg
Even though the heat has obviously trailed off, there's still a slew of hot vinyl being released that's worth devouring at your local record stores. Aside from some of the solid new releases that hit stores this week like Fruit Bats' The Ruminant Band and Modest Mouses' No One's First and You're Next, there's also some solid jazz reissues and key Nirvana albums that have been remastered and reintroduced on 180g vinyl.

That's great news to some of us with record players, and after the jump, vinyl columnist Jason Ferguson gives you the skinny on all of the fresh wax that's available this week.

So, Fresh Wax took the past two weeks off , not because there was any dearth of new vinyl, but simply because ... well, it's summer. Everyone deserves a little vacation, right? Anyway, the new wax didn't slow down all that much, so we've got all that info plus reissue info below.
