July 17 Notable Releases

A few of the 1,803 new and re-released albums coming out this week.

Editors --
An End Has a Start. New one from the dour purveyors of post-punk. Check out Damore's recent review.

Various Artisits -- Now, Vol. 25. Be sure to pick this up if you don't have an FM radio or need help figuring out some of the stuff MTV would be showing if they still played music. Also, eliminates need for that Daughtry, Akon, Keith Urban playlist you were dreaming up. You should probably buy 2 copies.

Daisuke "Dice-K" Matsuzaka / Various Artists -- Music From The Mound. This is basically a mix tape of music the new multi-million dollar Red Sox Pitcher finds "inspiring". Some of the artists are English speaking, others Japanese, but I couldn't do better than the press release to describe the key track.

"The album also features the new original track "Gyro Ball", which includes guest performances from former J. Geils harmonica player Magic Dick, former Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt as well as Boston Red Sox television announcers Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy."

I would have called the track "Two TV DB's, Extreme Nuno and their Magic Gyro Dick," because that's how it basically translates into Japanese. But I must say a gyro ball does sound delicious, assuming it comes with cucumber sauce. It's also a little ironic, given that recordreviews.org contributor Peabs has fingers made of gyros. It really is a small gyroland after all.
