April 24 Notable Releases

A few of the 2,182 new and re-released albums coming out this week.

Arctic Monkeys -- Favourite Worst Nightmare. London lads look to out limey Liam.

Patti Smith -- Twelve. Former St. Clair Shores coffee shop enthusiast and proto-punk-poet-priestess celebrates her Rock Hall induction with a set of classic covers.

Simply Red -- Stay. In what perhaps is the WTF release of the week, Mick "Red" Hucknall conspires with 1986 and his carrot top haircut to blow your mind. "Holding Back the Years" indeed. PS, Hucknall still under suspicion for being a really ugly woman.

Bebel Gilberto -- Momento. The superlative Brazilian pop star delivers her third album of blended bossa nova, samba, pop and electronica. I don't know what she's singing about, but I like to imagine it's jiggling boobies.

Various Artists -- A Tribute To Joni Mitchell. Elvis Costello, Prince and Bjork among others pay tribute to the folk icon.

The Original Off-Broadway Cast -- Evil Dead: The Musical. "Groovy."
