This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases

The Arcade Fire's sophomore album, Neon Bible, heads a strong music release week in the US, followed closely by US releases of the solo albums Candylion by Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys and Yours to Keep by Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. This weeks other strong recommendations are !!!'s Myth Takes, Air's Pocket Symphony, Bright Eyes' Four Winds EP, the Moaners' Blackwing Yalobusha, Robyn Hitchcockand the Venus 3's Sex, Food, Death and Tarantulas EP, and Son Volt's The Search. If you havren't picked up Okkervil River's Black Sheep Boy yet, Jagjaguwar has collected a "definitive edition" of the disc, adding the Black Sheep Boy Appendix EP as well as some b-sides to the original album.
