Music: This Week's New Releases

The holiday season is gearing up which means repackaging, repackaging, ooo a last minute hip-hop blockbuster or two, and yet more repackaging.

That being said there are a few releases of note this week.

On the actually new front is Bonnie "Prince" Billy's covers album Ask Forgiveness. No forgiveness necessary buddy, especially not when you're covering R. Kelly and Bjork. Here's the video for "Cursed Sleep" from his last album:

Also new is an EP From the wonderful British Sea Power called Krankenhaus? Here they are doing "Atom" from the new EP live in 2006:

The pick of the recycling front is yet another installment of Motown's wallet draining, ear expanding drool inducing singles box set collections, this one covering the epochal year 1968.

Steely Dan man Donald Fagen boxes his three solo albums together along with a DVD in The Nightfly Collection. Here's the classic video to "New Frontier" from the album The Nightfly, an MTV staple in the early 80s:

Led Zeppelin shake their super-fans down for a second week in a row with their remastered The Song Remains The Same soundtrack. Here's the trailer for the film:

Finally Damon Albarn's Gorillaz supergroup collects their D-Sides for your listening pleasure. Here's the video for "Rockit" from the collection:
