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

With a handful of gift cards and certificates, my pre-orders this week were anything but indie. As the holidays near, I ordered the Billy Joel box set (for my mom), the Britney Spears remix album (for my niece), and The Muppet Christmas Carol (for my wife). Tomorrow I'll be hunting down Jens Lekman's Oh You're So Silent, Jens and the new Ghostface and Trife da God collaboration. Can anyone recommend any good indie record stores in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area?

Since I am in North Carolina for the holiday, I'll have to pick up the fourth season of the Andy Griffith Show for my wife, as well as seasons 5 and 6 of Seinfeld (though I won't be springing for the deluxe edition that comes with a puffy shirt).

What are you buying this week?
