New Music Tuesday

I didn't intentionally drop the ball on New Music Tuesday last week but I had trouble finding necessary inspiration in light of the fact all anyone was talking about was that plague Lady GaGa. This being the Tuesday after a major U.S. holiday, our slate is a little light but there are some big names and things you ought to know about.

First up: Eddie Vedder has another solo release and this one is called Ukelele Songs. Why, you ask? Because that's what they are, songs what have ukelele as prominent musical accompaniment. I haven't heard the record so I don't know if uke is the only instrument on the record but my understanding is there is truth in advertising here. If you want to hear Ed jam that uke, here you go.

The legendary Marvin Gaye's legendary album What's Going On is getting a super deluxe reissue as a 2CD/2LP package.

Dave Matthews Band is getting ready to take a hiatus but not before releasing another live record, this one from the legendary friendly confines of Wrigley Field. I will buy this only if it's the first DMB live album to not have "Jimi Thing" on it. I am so over that song and kind of over DMB and that song is a big reason why. It's always played for 14 minutes and I want to kick an ugly child every time the crowd giddily cheers the pot reference in it. Anyway, yours if you want it.
