Music: This Week's New Releases


This week's new music releases lead off with Athens Georgia's own R.E.M., a band who up until now had nary a live album in their catalog (though they have a couple of excellent live DVD's.) This album documents their recent mini-tour which also produced some new songs and is cleverly named Live.

Fellow Athen-ites Pylon see their album Gyrate re-issued with some bonus tracks.

The Reissue masters at Rhino give us a double-disc set of Aretha Franklin rarities with the lengthily monikered Rare And Unreleased Recordings From The Golden Reign Of The Queen Of Soul.

Jimmy Eat World try again to recapture the magic of 2001's breakthrough single "The Middle" with the Butch Vig produced set Chase the Light.

Finally, Kenna also tries to get back some of the buzz that surrounded him back in the early-aughties with Make Sure They See My Face.
