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

With Hurricane Katrina hitting the US gulf coast last week, I decided to donate my usual weekly music and video stipend to the Red Cross.

Between a bad cold and Hurricane Katrina, buying music didn't seem too important last week, so I didn't preorder any of this week's music releases. Here's what I have through advances or previous preorders that I can recommend:

Dirty on Purpose: Sleep Late for a Better Tomorrow EP
Drums & Tuba: Battles Ole
Jose Gonzales: Veneer
Liz Janes and Create: Liz Janes and Create
Robert Skoro: That These Things Could Be Ours

Koch reissues two Sloan albums this week, Navy Blues and One Chord To Another.

The most interesting music release this week is the Pet Shop Boys' soundtrack for one of my favorite films of all time, The Battleship Potemkin. For the odd pairing of artist and film, I might pick this up on curiosity alone.

The DVD releases are diverse and plentiful, but I am limiting my purchases to the first season of Lost.

What is everyone else buying this week?
