Now Downloading: New Releases 10.07.08

It's a deep field of releases this week, topped off by the latest Bob Dylan Bootleg series release (Tell Tale Signs: the Bootleg Series Vol. 8.) Of course, in this economy, you'd be hard pressed to get the deluxe version retailing at over $100. In fact, with the state of the economy, there probably isn't a worse time for physical sales of albums, so it's a tough break for excellent new releases from Deerhoof, Department of Eagles, Vivian Girls, Lambchop, Antony & the Johnsons, Jolie Holland, Marnie Stern, Land of Talk, Women, The Spinto Band, Annuals, Oasis, a singles collection from Jay Reatard, a live album from The Clash, and the latest from longtime Drake fave New Radiant Storm King. Reissue of note: MF Doom's Operation Doomsday.

I'm hard pressed this week to do my usual full post -- it's just the time it takes to set up the post with links to albums, etc, that's so daunting a task, especially given how deep the list is this week. I'll update this post if and when I have time to.

Playlist: New Releases 10.07.08

Deerhoof - Offend Maggie
Stream / Purchase [mp3]

Deerhoof - Offend MaggieThere's nothing really new to Deerhoof's latest, but Offend Maggie still works it's magic like a collection of greatest moments from their quirky back catalogue. Their version of 'twee prog' is so delightfully weird and melodic that even without forging new ground, these songs still sound fresh. From the sizzling opener "The Tears and Music of Love" to the joyful (and funky) "Snoopy Waves," one wonders who this Maggie is and how she could be offended by such wonderful noise.
