Mueller's Musings: A Look at November 2003 Releases

Wow.  Could there possibly be any more great albums coming out this month?  In fact, just the first week alone is enough to send you to the poorhouse.  On November 4th there are many great releases.  This includes two discs from Ryan Adams and a new one from Wyclef Jean.  Also that week look for a national release from The Pale.  This is a great album!  Then there is the long delayed new release from Wheat, and of course there is the long awaited POD album (I’ve listened to the whole thing, and it is a very nice sound.), and a disc from Mark Kozelek and his side project Sun Kill Moon. And that’s just the first week of the month!  On the 11th look for new discs from the Insyderz, Matchbox Twenty, and Six Parts Seven.  Then on the 18th some former members of the Smoking Popes release a new disc under the name of Duvall.  Also on the 18th there is a live disc from Ben Harper and an EP from Pillar.  And finally, if that isn’t enough, to wrap the month up on the 25th, Wilco’s John Stirrat releases a disc under the name of The Autumn Defense, and there is also a new disc from Audioslave.  Enjoy the tunes!
