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

The Fiery Furnaces release their mush-anticipated (by me, at least) Rehearsing My Choir this week, and it's the best biographical grandmother record of the year, hands down. Fortunately I already have the disc in hand an can recommend it heartily, along with the US release of Tom Vek's excellent We Have Sound, Goblin Cock's Bagged and Boarded, and Rogue Wave's Descended Like Vultures.

Annie's DJ-Kicks, Antony and the Johnson's You Are My Sister EP, and Saddle Creek's benefit album for Hurricane Katrina relief will make up the majority of my record shopping tomorrow, with Vashti Bunyan's Lookaftering a probable pickup as well.

I'm sure the third and fourth seasons of Dangermouse will annoy my wife, but they are tops on my list of video releases this week. Add Margaret Cho's Assassin concert film, and I'll be digging through the sales for whatever else looks good.
