Tomorrow's Shopping Bag (This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases)

Many discs worth purchasing are out this week. Aimee Mann's The Forgotten Arm, the excellent Amaterasu by David Fridlund (one of my favorite releases of the year so far), Jennifer O'Connor's The Color and the Light, and A Northern Chorus's Bitter Hands Resign have all found their way to me already, and I am very fond of all these albums.

My shopping list tomorrow will add even more highly anticipated (by me, at least) releases. Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti's Worn Copy, Madvillain Quasimoto's The Further Adventures of Lord Quas, The Hold Steady's Separation Sunday, and the Russian Futurists' Our Thickness are all my shopping targets. New discs from the Raveonettes, Oneida, Nouvelle Vague and Mice Parade may have to wait until they fall into the used or bargain bin, unless someone convinces me to pick them up tomorrow. Any other recommendations? Discs to avoid?

The most interesting disc out tomorrow is Oh Say Can You Sing? Music Recordings By Major League Baseball Players. I have only heard the Phillies' Jimmy Rollins' track (which wasn't bad at all), but friends have warned me that it's the best song (by far) on a mediocre album. I'll wait for this one in the dollar bin.

The DVD releases are littered with collector's editions and UMD discs for the Sony PSP. I'll be picking up a couple of television seasons, the third seasons of The Gilmore Girls and Everybody Loves Raymond (the former for me, the latter for my wife). Any suggestions?
