Robyn Hitchcock Robyn Hitchcock

Robyn Hitchcock released his 21st album on April 21st, which happens to be my birthday. This eponymous record made an excellent birthday gift. It will no doubt make an excellent holiday present as well. It's Hitchcock's best effort in years. That's saying a lot too, for Robyn is man who has set the bar quite high for himself and he consistently meets or exceeds expectations. The album is hook laden as only Hitch can laden it. If there's a Hitchhead in your life who doesn't own this gem, here's your chance to rectify that situation, posthaste.

BUY: Robyn Hitchcock


Savage Young Dü
Hüsker Dü

Savage Young Dü Hüsker Dü

It will be a happy holiday indeed for the Hüsker Dü fan who receives this boxed treasure trove of recordings from the Hüskers first three years. Bob Mould's punishing buzzsaw flying V is there, as is the one-two-punch of the rhythm section featuring a singing, barefoot Grant Hart and budding mustache wearer Greg Norton. Yes, anger was spewed, the spit sent flying, and the buried-under-feedback melodies began emerging from the chaos even then. The set comes with 3 CDs plus booklet or 4 LPs plus a seven inch and hardcover book. Santa's already got his, get yours.

BUY: Savage Young Dü
