This Week's Interesting CD Releases (February 5th, 2008)

Of the new music releases this week, Basia Bulat's Oh My Darling is by far my favorite. Her debut album finally gets a US release tomorrow on Rough Trade, thanks to Frank at Chromewaves for not only pointing out this wonderful singer-songwriter, but for also continuing to champion this talented artist.

Other new releases I can recommend include Hot Chip's Made in the Dark, Dead Meadow's Old Growth, Jason Collett: Here's To Being Here, Lightspeed Champion's Falling off the Lavender Bridge, Nada Surf's Lucky, School of Language's Sea from Shore, and Sons & Daughters: This Gift.

If you have small children, consider picking up yet another fine kids album by They Might Be Giants, Here Come The 123s

Interesting reissues include a two-disc remastered edition of Paul Weller's Wild Wood, which includes one disc filled with demos.

What new releases you picking up this week? What can you recommend? Have I left anything worthwhile off the list?
