Tomorrow's Shopping Bag

This week's major music release is the Mountain Goats new record, The Sunset Tree. John Darnielle's songwriting continues to soar to new levels, and John Vanderslice's spot-on production is a perfect match. Stream several of the album tracks at this Amazon interview with Darnielle. In related news, Dennis Brown's At The Food Mountain is re-released this week (the Dennis Brown mentioned in "Song for Dennis Brown").

My other preorders for the week include Elvis Costello's remastered King of America. Rhino's reissues of EC's work have been impressive so far, and I expect nothing less from this release. Feist's Let It Die sees its US release (finally), and I picked up a couple copies for friends, having bought the Canadian release last year for myself. This was one of my favorite albums last year, and its pop goodness can't be recommended enough. A friend picked up Stereolab's box set, Oscillons from the Anti Sun, for me, and I'm looking forward to cracking it open. I'll probably pick up the Super Furry Animals reissue, Guerilla.

I'll be digging through the bargains in the DVD new releases at Best Buy tomorrow, my only definite purchase will be Soylent Green, which finally makes its way to the format.

Any CD's or DVD's released this week that I missed? Can you recommend anything else? Warn me?
