Matthew Ryan has a new album out called Dear Lover, if you cant wait then the digital release is available from now from Amazon, iTunes and via his own website here. I what suggested that if you want an old fashioned CD then you would have to wait until next year. But the latest check on the website is saying ordering from the website and you’ll get it as quickly as the US Postal service can deliver it.
As many are currently doing, DJ Shadow has just released a deluxe edition of their classic Psyence Fiction album. The special edition is available through DJ shadow’s site here. In addition to download version, he has followed Radiohead with the exclusive special pack of CDs, t-shirts etc – although they’ve already sold out. Atleast DJ Shadow isn’t just trying to extract money from old rope, he is also regularly releasing live performance recordings and remixes as well. Although I’ve yet to try such a recording (I didn’t enjoy the last studio work) his last live CD was a brilliant piece of work. The album includes brilliant vocal performances from Thom York and Richard Ashcroft.
