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

The winter holidays will be here quicker than you can imagine, and that means my holiday mix needs fresh tunes. Brian Wilson 's Christmas album, What I Really Want For Christmas, and Marah's holiday effort, A Christmas Kind of Town, will surely help me fill the gaps this year. I am most hyped about the new Silver Jews album, Tanglewood Numbers, and will pick it up along with the two holiday records tomorrow.

I already have (and can recommend) these discs:

The Chrysler: Failures and Sparks [cd]
Eames Era: Double Dutch [cd]

The video releases seem to center on two big "B's": Batman and The Big Lebowski. No fewer than nine Batman titles are scheduled for release this week, led by Batman Begins. Two special editions of The Big Lebowski (widescreen collectors and achievers editions)are out as well. I'm planning to dig around the sale racks and stick mostly to music this week, and have only preordered the classic Film, .

What is on your shopping list this week?
