This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases

The Mountain Goats release Get Lonely tomorrow, and I can't recommend the album enough. John Darnielle's songwriting is perfectly framed by Scott Solter's production, and the band simply amazes me by topping itself with every release. Other than Get Lonely, there are many other interesting music releases this week, my shopping list is headed by Electrelane's singles and b-sides compilation.

On the DVD front, I'll be looking for the acoustic Pixies disc and season two of House.
