This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases

Regina Spektor's Begin To Hope mesmerized me from my first listen, it was at the top of my preorder list this week, along with the Delgados' Complete BBC Peel Sessions, Sonic Youth's Rather Ripped, and Don't You Know Who I Think I Was? - The Best of the Replacements. I forgot to order the two disc remastered edition of Matthew Sweet's classic album, Girlfriend, so I'll be searching for that tomorrow.

I can recommend the following discs that have already either been sent my way or I was able to pick up early:
Allison Moorer: Getting Somewhere
Final Fantasy: He Poos Clouds
Futureheads: News And Tributes
Six Organs Of Admittance: The Sun Awakens

Jonathan Demme's Neil Young performance documentary, Heart of Gold is out tomorrow, as is Seu Jorge - Live at Montreux 2005. I'll be buying both, but the disc that has me most excited is the arrival to DVD of Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp.

What new releases are you buying this week?
