Got any of that holiday cash still lying around? If you haven’t cashed Aunt Edith’s check yet, now’s the time ’cause this week’s new releases are not to be missed. If you’ve been listening to KEXP at all, or downloading our podcasts, you’re sure to have heard many of these bands: Vampire Weekend, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, The Shackeltons, Yoav, and Xiu Xiu. From the Northwest come two fantastic releases from The Helio Sequence and Chris Walla. Also, relative old-timers Willie Nelson and Joe Jackson have new albums as well, and look for the deluxe edition of Beck’s Odelay.
