New Releases 2.8.2011

Any week where you see a release from both Yanni AND Motorhead you know you're in for a good one. There's a lot of big names up this week (besides the aforemention duo), all of it getting a good bit of hype and amazingly I have heard none of it. Actually....scratch that. I did hear about 10 second of "Over The Rhine" on NPR tonight and they were pretty singy in their overly Rhineish way. So there's that. Cut Copy has been getting a ton of hype and I hope to dive into that before the week is up. As for the rest? Who knew there was a show called "The Sing Off"? And it has a second season!!!

Next week looks to have a number of fairly anticipated releases (Mogwai, DBT and Bright Eyes among them) so hopfelly I'll get to some of those this weekend. Until then here's THIS weeks bunch.....which includes YANNI...really? REALLY?
