This is what was new in April:

Fiona Apple – Extraordinary Machine
Brendan Benson – The Alternative to Love
The Decemberists – Picaresque
Doves – Some Cities
Galaxie 500 – Uncollected
Jeff Hanson – Jeff Hanson
Luna – Romantica
Maria Mckee – Peddlin’ Dreams
Michael Penn – Mr. Hollywood Jr. 1947
Moby – Hotel
PJ Harvey – Stories from the City – Stories from the Sea
Stacey Earle – Simple Gearle
Steve Earle – Jerusalem
Tears for Fears – Everyone Loves a Happy Ending

The Michael Penn cd won’t be released until August 2nd, but I have it LEGALLY and since he was in Philly, added it to the mix. Excluding this cd the best I heard this month was the PJ Harvey cd – not new, but somehow I missed it. If it weren’t for the fact that Thom Yorke did a duet with PJ on this cd, I wouldn’t have bought it. The Doves cd and the Decemberists cd were also high points of the month.
