This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases

In a busy week for music releases, my preorders consisted of Elf Power's Back To The Web, Feist's remix album, Open Season, the Streets' The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living, and Robyn Hitchcock's BBC Radio session collection, This Is the BBC. I'll be searching out Bruce Springsteen's album of Pete Seeger covers as well as Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris's All The Road Running tomorrow, looking for a steep discount somewhere.

My early purchases (plus discs sent by artists, labels, or PR companies) that I can recommend are:

Rose Melberg: Cast Away the Clouds [cd]
Secret Machines: Ten Silver Drops [cd]
Starlight Mints: Drowaton [cd]
Tom Verlaine: Around [cd]
Tom Verlaine: Songs And Other Things [cd]

I preordered a couple of DVD's this week: The Fuccons, Vol. 2: It's a Fuccon World, and 24 Hours On Craigslist.
