New releases – music

Matthew Sweet – Kimi Ga Suki – don’t know how I missed this last week. Originally released in Japan last year, it’s finally getting a stateside release. Not getting a lot of promotion, not sure what’s up with his solo career (although I’d be happy if he stays with The Thorns for a while).

10,000 Maniacs – Campfire Songs: Popular Obscure Unknown Recording, a 2 CD best of/rarities collection. I got rid of the only studio album I have of theirs when I heard this was coming out.

Ultimate Yes: 35th Anniversary Collection, a 3 CD best of from the prog rock masters. I’m leaning towards buying this instead of the 5 CD box – I like ’em, but not that much.
