This Week's Interesting CD & DVD Releases

Of all the good music released this week, my preorders were Josephine Foster's Wolf in Sheep's Clothing and Metacritic's #1 album of the year so far, Soul Jazz Records Presents Tropicalia. There are many other releases worth picking up, I'll start with the new Shonen Knife, Genki Shock, and browse through the rest of my list. Any recommendations?

Here's what I have already received from artists, labels and PR machines and can recommend in varying degrees:

Aloha: Some Echoes [cd]
Blanket Music: Love / Love Translation [cd]
Built To Spill: You In Reverse [cd]
Calexico: Garden Ruin [cd]
Crystal Skulls: Outgoing Behavior [cd]
Josh Ritter: The Animal Years [cd]
Lambchop: Decline of Country & Western Civilization Part II [cd]
Pretty Girls Make Graves: Elan Vital [cd]
Wilderness: Vessel States [cd]

The Calexico and Lambchop albums stand out from this bunch, and both could sneak into my list of 2006 favorites.

Fun With Dick and Jane is out on DVD this week, but I have three hockey releases preordered: NHL Overtime - Heroes and Drama of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, NHL's Greatest Goals, and NHL's Masked Men - The Last Line of Defense instead.

What new releases are you pondering this week?
