This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases

This week's music release list is highlighted by the US release of internet phenoms the Arctic Monkeys' Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. Four Billy Bragg reissues with bonus material (Brewing Up With Billy Bragg, Internationale/Live and Dubious, Life's a Riot With Spy Vs Spy, and Talking With the Taxman About Poetry are on my shopping list, as is Cracker's re-recording of their greatest hits album, Greatest Hits Redux. Surprisingly for me, I haven't heard a note of the new Lilys' album, Everything Wrong Is Imaginary, but I'll be looking to buy it along with Elbow's Leader of the Free World. My only preorder this week was Meredith Bragg's The Departure EP. I have a surprising number of this week's releases already, and can recommend:

Anna Oxygen: This is an Exercise [cd]
Deadstring Brothers: Starving Winter Report [cd]
Destroyer: Destroyer's Rubies [cd]
Eef Barzelay: Bitter Honey [cd]
Eels: With Strings Live At Town Hall [cd]
Ex-Boyfriends: Dear John [cd]
Ian Love: Ian Love [cd]
Maximo Park: Missing Songs [cd]Two Gallants: What the Toll Tells [cd]
Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice: Gipsy Freedom [cd]

Since I'm picking up all the Billy Bragg reissues, I'll probably pass on the DVDs released this week (for now).
