This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases

In a week filled with exciting new music releases, my pre-orders consisted of Neil Young's protest album (out digitally last week), Living With War, blogger-approved Beirut's Gulag Orkestar, The Stills' Without Feathers, Shearwater's Palo Santo, and Kimya Dawson's Remember That I Love You. With all this music headed my way, it is the Kimya Dawson disc that I am most waiting to spin.

Here are the discs I have received as promos or picked up before their release date that I can recommend in varying degrees:

Art Brut: Bang Bang Rock & Roll [cd]
Danielson: Ships [cd]
Eugene Mirman: En Garde Society (with bonus DVD) [cd]
Matmos: The Rose Has Teeth In The Mouth Of A Beast [cd]
Wooden Wand: Harem of the Sundrum & the Witness Figg [cd]

I'm headed out tomorrow to pick up the final Grandaddy disc, Just Like The Fambly Cat, what else should be on my radar?

My only DVD preorder was the first season of the "sqigglevision" classic, Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist. I'm hoping the super-megastore will have a deep discount on the third season of Scrubs, and looking for other deals on this week's releases. What can you recommend?
