New Releases 3.1.11 - Devotchka, Lucinda Williams and an indie "supergroup"

We've got a good number of larger releases today from the likes of Devotchka (read the review here), Lucinda Williams, and Mike Watt, but I'm hearing that the ones to watch this week are the new releases from the Dum Dum Girls, and the Deer-Tickish "supergroup" Middle Brother. Made up of the lead singers of the bands Deer Tick, Dawes, and  Delta Spirit the Middle Brother project sure SEEMS promising, but knowing how these things go we'll just have to wait and see. After a cursory listen this afternoon all I can say is that it sounds like Deer Tick with some other guys singing. Which isn't bad. Usually. I'll be getting into the album more in depth later on in the week. Until then, here's your pickings for the week.
