O Brother, Where Art Thou? 10th Anniversary Edition | New Music ReleasesIt's been a decade since T Bone Burnett's brilliantly executed soundtrack to The Coen Brothers' masterpiece O Brother, Where Art Thou? became an unexpected commercial and critical hit with fans, introducing the unsuspecting public to Americana, roots, bluegrass, folk, and blues. The 10th Anniversary of the set is being celebrated with a remastered edition that now sports a second disc of songs that could easily have fit with the well-known first disc.

Kansas roots/blues duo Moreland & Arbuckle have a new album out this week, their second for Telarc. They get an assist from legendary Stax session man Steve Cropper on one track ("White Lightnin'") and cover Tom Waits' "Heart Attack & Vine." We reviewed the video for their debut single "Purgatory" and now have a review of the full album.

Miranda Lambert has a side project with two other female country singers and the all-girl trio Pistol Annies have their debut record slated to hit shelves today. We've already reviewed the first single and its accompanying video as well as the album itself. Also in the country department, we have Sunny Sweeney's Concrete out this week.

In the department of "I Can't Believe I'm Discussing This," we have a new collection from Barbra Streissand. The good news for BS fans is that yes, of course it has a pretentious title: What Matters Most Barbra Streisand Sings The Lyrics Of Alan & Marilyn Bergman. I'm sure fans will lap this one up.

On the hip hop/rap front, we have The Game's R.E.D. Album.

Those are just a few of what we're buying (or not). Now it's your turn; take a look at this week's list of new releases and tell us what you're looking forward to.
