Eleni Mandell - Miracle of Five (buy it)
Torchy Mandell's umpteenth album's got a vocal intimacy to it I haven't heard from her before, based on the four tracks streaming on her MySpace. You'll also find tour dates there; her tour starts Thursday in LA, then heads to Europe after a few more west coast dates.
Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts of the Great Highway (reissue) (buy it)
Released way back in...2003, this is a reissue on Mark Kozelek's own Caldo Verde label. It comes with a bonus disc that includes an alternate version of "Carry Me Ohio," an acoustic "Salvador Sanchez," a radio recording of "Gentle Moon," two versions of Leonard Bernstein's "Somewhere", and "Arrival," an instrumenal cut from the soundtrack to The Girl Next Door. Kinda skimpy if you already own the album, but not a bad deal if you don't.
