IT'S NEW RELEASE MONDAY: or, rather, it was. And it's a great week for new stuff, with K records bringing back Heavenly versus Satan, that controversial (aren't they all?) Ready Mades and Flophouse Junior offering Hour Glass House. Highlight of the week, though, must be Lifted, or..., which despite straying into the Hall of the Way Too Long Name looks set to establish Bright Eyes' reputation in the UK. We shall enjoy just a couple more minutes of having Conor Oberst to ourselves...

Midprice stuff is also having a great week - Sparks do a Best Of, Melody AM from Royksopp and Destiny's Child's Writings on the Wall make what seems like early entries into the pocket money price bracket. If you don't really like music - or know someone you hate - The Man Who... is now available for something nearer to what it's actually worth. But the best of all is the entire Suede catalogue going MidPrice - offering cheap thrills with songs about cheap thrills from suede to dogmanstar and sci-fi lullabies, head music and beyond...

NB: The behemoth that is Amazon can sometimes be a bit flaky about getting its midprice stock available on time, so you might be better off popping into a shop for the cheaper titles...

Singles - Sinead O'Connor's Troy is coming around again - presumably she's got a load of communion wine to buy; it's pitching up against Sugababes Round Round and Royksopp's Remind Me.
