New Releases Tuesday (7/5)

Sufjan Stevens - Come on Feel the Illinoise (Asthmatic Kitty) Delayed!! The highly anticipated second installment of Stevens' 50 states album project was supposed to be in stores today but it was recalled at the last minute due to legal issues with the cover art. (apparently the use of Superman on the front didn't clear with the lawyers...doh!!) Sufjan fans and Land of Lincoln history buffs will now have to wait until August 2nd to get their hands on such tracks as "To The Workers Of The Rockford River Valley Region, I Have An Idea Concerning Your Predicament, And It Involves Shoe String, A Lavender Garland, And Twelve Strong Women" and "The Black Hawk War, Or, How To Demolish An Entire Civilization And Still Feel Good About Yourself In The Morning, Or, We Apologize For The Inconvenience But You're Going To Have To Leave Now, Or, 'I Have Fought The Big Knives And Will Continue To Fight Them Until They Are Off Our Lands!'" The Juan Mclean - Less Than Human (DFA) Doh!! This one was also pushed back today...new release date is expected to be July 26. Missy Elliott - The Cookbook (Goldmine) Whaaa?? Timbaland only appears on one track on this album??? That's like the Stones cutting an album without Keith Richards!?! Out Hud - It's For You [12"] (Kranky) Both the CD and vinyl versions feature three different mixes of the song while the CD also includes the band's first official music video, produced by The Wilderness (Phantom Planet, Enon, Keren Ann). Mr. Kranky sez: Expect lots of insects!

Yr point stands, because this Missy record is very different from the rest...but if it's any consolation, Timbo actually has TWO tracks on "The Cookbook"...
