Damn, I was really looking forward to the live Wilco DVD, but as you probably already know, that release got shelved, and the result is this two-CD consolation prize. Actually, the CD set was scheduled to be released anyway, as a companion piece to the DVD, and the oddly prophetic "Kicking Television" was indeed its original title. Regardless, this will still make a great holiday gift for all the Wilco fans on your shopping list.
(Speaking of the holidays, it's pretty much all gravy from here on New Releases Tuesday...nothing but box sets, live albums, best-of's and other stocking stuffer fare through the end of the year. )
Lady Sovereign - Vertically Challenged (Chocolate Industries)
Make way for the S - O - Veeeee! This is an excellent little ep to hold stateside fans (who don't buy singles like they do in the UK) over until her proper full-length debut drops later next year. Features the hits "Ch-Ching," "Random" and a couple of remixes. If you missed her show at Sonotheque in July, make sure you secure your ticket to her upcoming gig at The Empty Bottle on the 6th of December.
