Out This Week 11/18

It’s a tough luck to have to tighten the financial belt at this time of year, what with the winter holidays right around the corner. Will little Timmie get his Transformers, or young Ashley her Wii this season? More importantly, will you buy the latest releases? A quick look at Largehearted Boy’s list will put aside any reservations you have. Must buys include a second collaboration from Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan, a collection of early BBC session from Belle & Sebastian, another great album from Alaska in Winter, and a live DVD of The Black Keys recorded in Portland. Other worthy purchases include a best of from Stereophonics plus new releases from Andy Yorke (brother of Thom), Ladyhawke, Senor Coconut, Femi Kuti, and two Seattle bands, The Kindness Kind and Brent Amaker & the Rodeo. So put off any thoughts of thriftiness, get out there and bolster our economy!

But if thrifty you must be, a quick look around will prove that you can save a few bucks shopping for deals rather than for deluxe editions and box sets. You can expect that there will be more specials this year than usual, such as the Holiday Sale at local label Light in the Attic, where you can pick up deeply discounted bundles like the “Social Commentary Bundle” and the “Brown Bag Special” (see, it’s even gift wrapped for you!).
