Posted in music | new releases on February 10, 2009

Lily AllenLily Allen's It's Not Me, It's You, her follow-up to her successful debut Alright, Still is out Tuesday, and the vinyl picture disc edition is at the top of my shopping list. Catch her for free Tuesday night at Bowery Ballroom in NYC.

Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys drops his solo debut, Keep It Hid Tuesday. Singer-songwriter Ben Lee will donate a percentage of the proceeds from his new album, The Rebirth of Venus, to the FINCA Village Banking program, which offers small loans to low-income female entrepreneurs around the world. In a rather slow week for releases, I can also recommend Charles Spearin's The Happiness Project, Golem's wonderfully playful Citizen Boris, Miranda Lee Richards' Light of X, and Wilco guitarist Nels Cline's Coward.

What new releases can you recommend? Have I left anything off the list?

I remember when Glen was on his first TV show. What a voice and presence. Such a gentleman. I download his music off YouTube. Glad to see his popularity is not fading.
