Posted in music | new releases on October 13, 2008

Lucinda WilliamsLucinda Williams releases her album tomorrow, Little Honey, which finds the singer-songwriter surprisingly content.

Vic Chesnutt, Elf Power, and The Amorphous Strums' Dark Developments combines some of my favorite musicians in this release from Orange Twin.

The week's release list is filled with worthwhile music, from what I have already heard I can recommend The Courteeners' St. Jude, Frances' All the While, Hearts of Palm UK's For Life, Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs' Dirt Don't Hurt, Nick Jaina's A Narrow Way, and Windy & Carl's Songs for the Broken Hearted.

Holiday music continues to released in droves, this week in no exception. You can celebrate a Psychobilly Christmas, a Jazz & Blues Christmas (compiled by Putumayo), a Classic Rock Christmas, Christmas A Go-Go or even a metal Xmas and headbanging New Year. Not into compilations? Spend a classical holiday with Yo-Yo Ma's Songs of Joy & Peace or a more rocking time with The Fleshtones' Stocking Stuffer.

Any recommendations from the week's music release list?

I've hear good and bad about the new Secret Machines. Their live show was amazing before Ben (the guitarist) left, then I saw them a couple times after (Highline, Annex) and was not impressed.

Ooh. Brooklyn Vegan day party on 10/23 with Sebastien Grainger? I'd like to hear more about that!

The new Ray LaMontagne is fantastic. A return to the sound of "Trouble" much more than his sophomore effort. Show at RCMH was sick, too.

Apple has a special event scheduled for 10 AM PDT tomorrow -- the announcement of new notebooks is expected. Your MacBooks (base, Pro and Air) will become FAIL.

Is the new I'm From Barcelona CD supposed to be any good?

That Boo and Boo Too album is amazing. A friend of mine gave it to me a month ago and I can't stop listening to it. The new Fabric mix is pretty alright as is the new Windy & Carl.

Telepathe EP is pretty good.

Todd Snider's "Peace Queer" is unbelievable, really interesting stuff going on. He's coming in to play Town Hall on Oct. 25
