DOWNLOAD: Bright Eyes - Coat Check Dream Song (Live) (MP3)
The last release date in November means slim pickings for music fans. This is not truly a bad thing, because as the number of worthwhile music releases dwindles, music bloggers and journalists have time to work on and post their "best of 2007" lists.
The other disc I can recommend is also a compilation, Causes I. The disc's proceeds benefit relief efforts in Darfur, and artists who submitted exclusive tracks include Bright Eyes, Spoon, Animal Collective and many more.
Are you picking up any new releases this week? Have I left any noteworthy albums off the list below?
I already posted some of these dates, but that was when they were just Common shows. A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip has a new album coming out in early 2008 - it's called The Renaissance. He's also a character in the video game NBA 2K8, and is on the soundtrack. All tour dates below...
Mos Def, Common & Talib Kweli @ Nokia Theatre, NYC - Aug 26, 2007 (CRED)
Hey NYU, you have a lot of catching up to do. The five colleges who most demand Talib to play a show at their school, win that show (I hope after that the show is free at least - doesn't say, so I assume not). California is currently kicking butt.
Quirky producer Copperpot will release his new WYLA? album on August 7th. Check out the first single above, and stream Common - "The People" (prod. by Kanye West). Not sure about the cover he picked for the new album though.
