2/17/2008 - 2/23/2008

New releases this week include full lengths from American Music Club, Hayaino Daisuki, Atlas Sound, Monade, The
Mountain Goats, Marc Ribot, and a split LP from Irr.App.(Ext.) and Panicsville. Reissues include LPs from Captain
Beefheart, David Axelrod, Silver Apples, and a mess of CD remasters from Eyeless in Gaza. Also of particular note is a
great looking set from Roland Auzet which includes three CDs, a DVD, and a 500 page book by French musicologist
Pierre-Albert Castanet on the history of percussion music.
