Out This Week 11/27

At this point, there are fewer and fewer new releases, as critics, DJs, and fans alike assemble their year-end “Best of” lists (have you voted for your own?), so you’ll mostly find gift-friendly re-issues, holiday collections and box sets new in stores each week. Among them, the 20th anniversary edition of Rage Against the Machine‘s groundbreaking debut, packaged with 2 CDs and 2 DVDs and lots of eye candy, should make 90’s alt-rock fans drool, and for the even older fogies, there’s a 30th anniversary live concert recording by legendary British punk/folk group The Pogues. You also might find some new discoveries among the self-released albums and EPs that tend to come out this time of year, like those from UK artist Lone Wolf or LA producer Dan Froth. And it’s a good time to pick up limited releases like the new self-titled LP by Chicago’s Joan of Arc, available only on 500 hand-numbered vinyl copies (190 of them white vinyl!) and special collaborations like the pairing of The Animals frontman Eric Burdon and the Detroit rockers The Greenhornes. We suggest you give everything here a try, as you never know…
