New Release Roundup
Here's the quick list of new and notable releases:
Autumn Defense-Self Titled: Pat Sansone and John Stirratt of WILCO have released their third album.
Honeydogs-Amygdala: One of my favorite bands to come out of the Minneapolis alt. country has a new album. They write good catchy up-tempo country-flavored rock songs, and their whole catalog is worth a listen.
Crowded House-Farewell To The World: Finally available, the live recording of Crowded House's farewell concert. The show was held outside the Sydney Opera House with an audience of over 120,000 people. Cruise ships filled with fans anchored in the harbor to listen to the show and watch the fireworks display. They are a band that only scored a few big hits in the states, but they should've had at least a dozen more. One of the best bands to ever come from down under. This is a great concert, and I am glad it has been released, as my crappy VHS copy is starting to fall apart.
Neko Case-Live from Austin TX.: Part of the Austin City Limits series of CDs. She already released a live album last year which was damn good, but I am not going to complain about being able to add some more Neko to my CD collection.
