New Release Tuesday....

Out today is Paul McCartney's third album under the Fireman moniker, Electric Arguments. For the past 15 years, McCartney's Fireman collaborator, DJ/producer Youth, has helped him take his improvised studio pieces and form them into musically diverse and off-beat records.

Electric Arguments, which is the first to feature vocals and lyrics, is much more like a standard commercial McCartney album than the two previous collaborations, 1993's Strawberries Oceans Ships Forest and 1998's Rushes. Critics, fans -- and even McCartney himself -- have stated that the quality of the new set probably would have fared better under the McCartney name, rather than the obscure side project label.
The Pretenders have just issued their first E.P. of Christmas music. The four-track collection features the band's own holiday standard "2000 Miles," along with yuletide evergreens "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," "Blue Christmas," and "Blue Christmas Part 2."

Next month the band will perform four holiday shows on the West Coast before heading out on the road for a proper, extended road trek in January.
And Don't forget, right after my show at 9PM, it's New Release Tuesday with Harry Waering... He'll play some tracks off some new albums coming out today and some albums that haven't even been released yet...
