This week’s new releases include Kris McCoy’s Toes in the Sand CD, which he says was inspired by “summer, Ocean Beach, and meet-ups at Tower 2 for family beach days and surfing”; Reverend Stickman’s More Than Blues, on which he’s backed by Neener (aka singer/percussionist Jenene Lambert) and the SD Jazz Situation; and the self-titled debut from country/blues rockers Rick Elliot & the Secondhand Smoke Band.

The SDMA-nominated Best Alternative act Shake Before Us will be slinging a vinyl version of Radio Time Bomb (via Tower Bar Records) at the Casbah on August 29. Aside from performing the entire new full-length, keyboardist/singer Will Lerner says, “We’ll also be playing a few songs from our first album, one of which will feature our original bassist, Kevin ‘Cuz’ Donahue.”

Punk band PunchCard is launching their Non Compos Mentis EP on August 30 at the Shakedown Bar, where Just in Case and A New Ending will also play. On September 5 at House of Blues, female-fronted Gone Baby Gone debut their You Think You Know, but You Have No Idea EP, featuring four songs, including “The Jerk” (a duet featuring Pat Beers of Schitzophonics), plus a hidden track.

Into the Wide, the fourth album from former locals (current New Yorkers) Delta Spirit, drops September 9 via DualTone Records. The release party for Encinitas singer-songwriter Cleopatra Degher’s debut album Pacific happens September 12 at Lestat’s in Normal Heights.

Latin-EDM hip-hop duo Bostich & Fussible chose September 16 (Mexican Independence Day) to release Motel Baja, the third installment of their Border Trilogy (after Tijuana Sound Machine and Bulevar 2000), featuring collaborations with members of Tom Tom Club, Kraftwerk, and Señor Coconut. It’s their final release — they’re splitting up after next month’s appearance at L.A.’s Supersonico Festival.

Also saying goodbye is the Tree Ring, as Joel P. West has announced that the September 17 release party for their Ten Rivers album at the Irenic will be their final performance.

Finch’s first full-length in over nine years, Back to Oblivion, debuts September 30 at the Casbah, with the first single “Two Guns to the Temple” already available online. The bill also includes locals Weatherbox and Chicago rockers Maps & Atlases.
