Out This Week: New Releases 2/19

Dina Martina’s “The Presidents Day Song” (courtesy of Up Records) — perhaps the only tune penned for the holiday

While Presidents Day seems but a holiday for the lucky — a day off for federal and state employees and a postal inconvenience for the rest of us — it has become a day significant to retailers trying to punch up the post-holiday consumer slump by offering deep discounts on cars, furniture, and other big ticket items while donning the powered wigs and chinstrap beards of our former leaders. Hardly a milestone as far as holidays go… but it’s one CD retailers seem to have jumped on as well, making it a banner week for new releases. When you head to your local record store today, look for the latest by Grand Archives, Mountain Goats, The Raveonettes, Morcheeba, American Music Club, and Mike Doughty among many others. Check out Largehearted Boy’s list for the full lineup, as well as an interview with John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats. No go spend some Washingtons and Lincolns!
