Tomorrow's Shopping Bag (This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases)

As summer nears its end, the amount of interesting CDs and DVDs seems to be increasing every week. I'm most excited about CocoRosie's Noah's Ark this week, the Touch & Go release will likely work its way into my top eleven list by the end of the year. here is what I have picked up so far and can recommend:

Annie Hayden: The Enemy Of Love [cd]
Apollo Sunshine: Apollo Sunshine [cd]
CocoRosie: Noah's Ark [cd]
The Ex: Singles. Period. The Vinyl Years 1980-1990 [cd]
Levy: Rotten Love [cd]
Nada Surf: The Weight Is a Gift (special edition with bonus cd) [cd]
Rasputina: A Radical Recital [cd]
Shawn Amos: Thank You Shirl-ee May: A Love Story (dualdisc) [cd]
Various Artists: KCRW Presents: Sounds Eclectico [cd]

My shopping list for tomorrow has Dar William's My Better Self, Devendra Banhart's Cripple Crow, the new Sigur Ros album, Takk, and the double disc reissue of Sonic Youth's Goo. There are several other new CD's that are high on my list, but I'll probably pick them up used in the coming weeks.

Season five of Absolutely Fabulous is released on DVD tomorrow, along with repackaged releases from the rest of the series. I'll also be hunting a bargain on SCTV Vol. 4 and the 1979 adaption of Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar.
