Tim Hecker has been having a productive couple of years lately. Back in 2011 we were treated to not just a brand new (and excellent) album called Ravedeath, 1972, but also a morphed version of said album called Dropped Pianos. Last year he also released an album with Daniel Lopatin, and not resting on that, he’s preparing to release a new album in a few months time. Virgins will be released October 14th via Kranky/Paper Bag Records, after being recorded last year in Reykjavik, Montreal and Seattle. Preceding the release, Kranky will also release Hecker’s 2004 album Mirages. Check out the artwork to Virgins above and tracklisting below.

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
