Jazz Sabbath’s Long-Lost Debut Tops Today’s Album Announcements

New releases from Buzz, Perfume Genius, Magnetic Fields and others also on the list.


The devil, as they say, is in the details. And musical parodies don’t come much more detailed (or more devilishly clever) than Jazz Sabbath. Supposedly an ill-fated trio who not only predated Black Sabbath, but actually wrote all the songs that Ozzy and co. later made famous, their “long-lost” album — which may or may not be the work of longtime Ozzy / Sabbath sideman Adam Wakeman — will be released April 10. Get yourself up to speed (and fool some of your more gullible friends) with the above mockumentary on the band, their music and their legacy. It may be the most unusual new album announced this afternoon, but it’s far from the only disc headed your way in the near future. Scroll down to see the rest of the titles announced today — including new releases from Magnetic Fields, Throwing Muses, Buzz Osborne, Perfume Genius and Mick Fleetwood — or pop over to the Upcoming Releases page for the entire roster.
