I'll be picking up Das Not Compute by Division of Laura Lee.

Good call, Matt, I picked that up last weekend, but assumed it had already been released. It's good, but not as good as "Black City" (which I love).

don't bother w/the godfather. it's the same mediocre video transfer as the trilogy set that came out a year or so ago, and they are at work on a new special edition (w/a supposedly much cleaner transfer) for sometime in the next year or so. don't let the studios make you "douple dip" - be patient.

btw: thanks for the heads up on "the fog of war" - i had no idea it was coming out on dvd so soon.

This is a real wildcard from the past, but try Laura Nyro on CD. She was a 70's singer and composer, and sang in a clear, high soprano in sort of an R&B meets Lillith Fair meets Lounge Lizard meets chanteuse style.
Incredible intellect and lyrics, but definitely an acquired taste.

those miles davis sets are all the same as the currently available sets- they just ditch the smaller metal box for a big longbox... the miles davis "jack johnson" box set from last year is especially sweet though (on random play at least).

first i cursed sloan for playing here the same night as califone, now i'm daming them for adding bonus tracks to the domestic version when i bought the import last summer...

ps- a certain robert pollard also releases a certain solo album on a certain 11th of may.

What I will be calling around for tommorow:

Charalambides - Joy Shapes (Kranky)
Loscil - First Narrows (Kranky)
Thee Silver Mountain Reveries - Pretty Little Lightning Paw (Constellation)

And a long shot but worth tracking down:

Hans Appelqvist - Bremort (Komplott)

cheers!

I forgot about the Pollard disc, my wife usually preorders them from Luna for me (whether I want them or not). I've had it about a week and still haven't cracked the cellophane.

Thanks for the tips, Jubal, I forgot about the Charalambides record, and I'll be checking out the others.

The new Hayden cd, Elk Lake Seranade (came out in Canada on Tuesday) is also really good.
