For those not following along, Largehearted Boy brings us this list of interesting CD releases every week....

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's sophomore album, Some Loud Thunder, sees its official release date today. EPs from Beirut, the Love of Diagrams, and Lavender Diamond round out the discs that I plan to pick up tomorrow for myself.

For my friends with children, Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of The Ramones will find its way into birthday and care packages throughout the year (as will the similar disc of U2 lullaby tunes).
