New releases for the week, from Easy Street Records

This week's new releases looks like some kinds of flashback or a Halloween trick, but alas it's true: Arrested Development, Backstreet Boys, Blues Traveler, and Britney are all back with new records.

Best news of the week is the release of Carrie Akre's Last The Evening {see review}. Even if you don't know her from her other work, this is still a remarkable album and features the (drum) work of other local favorite Mark Pickerel.

Want some fall funk? Pick up Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings.

Want sweet crooning? Tift Merrit joins the list of illustrious folks who have been featured in the Austin City Limits "Live From Austin Texas" series today.

Here's the list:

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT – Since The Last Time
BACKSTREET BOYS – Unbreakable
BLUES TRAVELER – Cover Yourself
CARRIE AKRE – Last The Evening
IAN BELL – Who Goes There
SHARON JONES & THE DAP- KINGS – 100 Days – 100 Nights
