In Stock?: New CDs from Versus, Dr. John And The Lower 911 And Arcade Fire

Versus, Dr. John & Arcade Fire

Even at great record stores, you can't always find the albums you want. Sometimes the store has a particular specialty, sometimes the local audience doesn't support a genre, sometimes the price of an album doesn't justify the shelf space. Each Tuesday, we call five record stores around the country and ask if they have three brand new CDs in their store.

This week, we checked on On the Ones and Threes, the comeback record by indie pop band Versus, Tribal by New Orleans growler Dr. John and his band the Lower 911, and the 2010 answer to the question "Why do record stores exist?" (despite the fact that Amazon is selling a digital version of the album for $3.99): The Suburbs by Arcade Fire.

In honor of the Montreal band's album, we only called stores in suburbs. The kids need something to look forward to.
