What you'll be listening to soon...

Here at Decatur CD, we're lucky enough to get our grubby little mitts on a few records before they're officially released. And since we're kind folk, from time to time, we like to let you listen to these records as well. So, without further ado, here are some CDs we have in the store that don't come out for a while. Feel free to stop by, as we'd love for you to hear them as well:

Alejandro Escovedo - The Boxing Mirror
This is Warren's favorite album of the year so far. Escovedo recorded it with John Cale, and it's set to come out sometime in April or May. Warren had this to say, "It just sounds great. What more do you want?!!?" Exactly.

Built to Spill - You in Reverse
After five years, Doug Martsch and his band of Idahoan pranksters are finally getting around to releasing a new full-length, and Austin thinks its the guitar record of the year so far. The band will be coming to Variety Playhouse in May, but until then, we'll have this disc on repeat (it comes out in April, by the way).

Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
The silver-tongued Ms. Case has done it again. We think you'll agree that her voice sounds as great as it ever has. Look for it on the shelves on March 7.

Calexico - Garden Ruin
Hot on the tails of their collaborative EP with Iron & Wine, Calexico is dropping an epic new release on us in April. We're quite excited about it, as we think it will live up to the expectations of longtime fans of the band.

We've also got new music releases coming out soon from The Flaming Lips, Mark Knopfler/Emmylou Harris, Donald Fagen, Van Morrison and several others. Be sure to ask about any and all that interest you.

And remember, this is only the beginning of the blog. We'll have links up soon over there on the right side, and there will soon be near-daily posts, so be sure to check back often.
