The Blood Bank EP, the follow-up to Bon Iver’s pretty much unanimously adored debut LP, For Emma, Forever Ago, will be released later this month on Jagjaguwar. The EP is more of the same from the Wisconsin-based singer-songwriter, which in this case is good thing. If he keeps this consistent song craft up, he could be the next Bonnie Prince Billy, just 13 albums to go.

Also being released are albums from two of the best guitar bands that just won’t quit. The Rifles are back with The Great Escape, the follow-up to the fiery No Love Lost, and The View’s Which Bitch?, their first album since the Mercury Prize nominated Hats Off to the Buskers. The View are still on fire.
