New Record Day VII

Here's what's coming out this week that I think is notable:

  • Ministry, Rio Grande Blood
  • Willie Nelson, Live from Austin, Texas

Kind of a slow week! What records are you going to pick up this week?

Update: I picked up the Fever's "In the City of Sleep." Best record I've heard in a long time. Recommended.

Well, my emusic downloads just renewed, and I blew 'em all on the first day. Here's what I got this month:

Orobas - The Book Of Angels Volume 4 (Koby Israelite)
Fox Confessor Brings the Flood (Neko Case)
Garden Ruin (Calexico)
Beneath Confederate Lake (Pinetop Seven)
Sunda (Sundanese village groups)
Psychebelly Dance Music (Baba Zula & Mad Professor)
Let My People Go (Darondo)
Ethiopiques Volume 21 - Ethiopia Song (Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou)
Studs Terkel's Weekly Almanac: Radio Programme, No. 4: Folk Music and Blues (Studs Terkel, Big Bill Broonzy and Pete Seeger)

So far the Darondo is the best find, but the new Ethiopiques is quite nice and definitely surprising compared to others in the series. The Studs Terkel radio program was a joy, and I'm happy to say that none of these seem like they were a waste.
