This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases

In a slim music release week that includes tribute albums to both Neil Diamond and Big Star, my preorders consisted of only two discs, the Ditty Bops' Moon Over the Freeway and Tilly and the Wall's Bottoms of Barrels. I'll be searching out Bloodhag's Hell Bent for Letters, a series of short songs about science fiction authors, tomorrow.

In varying degrees, I can recommend these releases that I have either picked up early or have been sent my way:

The Heavy Blinkers: The Night and I Are Still So Young
Mission Of Burma: The Obliterati
Vetiver: To Find Me Gone
The Walkmen: A Hundred Miles Off

On the DVD front, I'll be picking up The Big Buy - Tom Delay's Stolen Congress with election season around the corner, as well as season three of Samurai Jack.

What can you recommend from this week's releases?
