In Stock?: New CDs From Mike Posner, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, 'Scott Pilgrim'

Mike Posner, Lee Perry, 'Scott Pilgrim'

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 31 Minutes To Takeoff, the debut album from adenoidal R&Bro newcomer Mike Posner; Revelation by dub pioneer Lee "Scratch" Perry; and the soundtrack to the movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which features original songs by Beck and Broken Social Scene.
