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

The first big music release date of the year adds several discs to my collection. I was lucky enough to acquire the following discs before their release date (and can recommend each):

Be Your Own Pet: Let's Get Sandy (single) [cd]
Cat Power: The Greatest [cd]
Catfish Haven: Please Come Back EP [cd]
East River Pipe: What Are You On? [cd]
His Name Is Alive: Detrola [cd]
Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins: Rabbit Fur Coat [cd]
Robert Pollard: From A Compound Eye [cd]

My shopping list is equally weighty, as I preordered The Elected's Sun, Sun, Sun, The Gossip's Standing in the Way of Control, Liz Durrett's The Mezzanine, Rocky Votolato's Makers, Tarkio's Omnibus, and The Brave and the Bold by Tortoise & Bonnie Prince Billy.

The only DVD I plan to pick up tomorrow is The Aristocrats, one of the funniest films I have seen in a long time.
