This Week's Releases

This is probably the biggest new release list that I have ever had to create. There is something for everyone this week, but the folk and alt-country folks really made out. My pick of the week falls in that category and comes from one of our favorite DC bands, These United States. I got to see them Monday night at their CD release party and it was so worth being hung over yesterday. There are also two other regional releases this week... a new disc from Philadelphia's The Swimmers and a collection of rarities from Dr. Dog. The trio of regional offerings are only the tip of the iceberg. Let's see if we can get through all of these...
