This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases

This week's release list is highlighted by two relative oldies. PJ Harvey's Peel session collection captures the singer-songwriter at her rawest and most powerful, and Matador gives the royal treatment to the Pavement's Pavement: Wowee Zowee: Sordid Sentinels Edition. Isobel Campbell's Milkwhite Sheets was a pleasant surprise, other than these I'll be heading to the record store to browse and see what catches my eye. What can you recommend? What have I omitted from the list?
