New Release Tuesday, and Mark Your DVR's

New releases this week:

Iron and Wine - The Shepard's Dog

From the sound of Boy with a Coin (MP3) and the acclaimed reviews, Sam Beam likely put out another classic. While I have always enjoyed I&W, it is a little on the slow side for my taste (which usually means only special occasion listening). However, this album sounds like it has more bite to it (no pun intended). More instruments are used than the first two albums which should make my ear happier.

Other releases I'm not too interested in:
Jose Gonzalez - In Our Nature
Devendra Banhart - Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon
Matt Pond PA - Last Light

Also, in other news ACL has posted their music specials.
