In Stores Now And Coming Soon: ‘Scooby-Doo’ Soundtrack, New Albums By Avril Lavigne, Dirty Vegas, DJ Quik & More

Albums by Belle & Sebastian, Danzig, Scratch also hitting shelves.

After five years of waiting for a new full-length solo effort, DJ Shadow’s fans are finally treated to the follow-up album to Entroducing … This time the innovative DJ offers The Private Press, an album that took him 15 months to complete and was created entirely from sampled music.

Also out Tuesday (June 4) is young newcomer Avril Lavigne’s debut Let Go, an album devoted to urging people to be themselves, as evidenced on such songs as “Complicated” and “Sk8er Boi.”

Me’Shell Ndegeocello’s Cookie: An Anthropological Mixtape shares shelf space with Belle & Sebastian’s Storytelling and the Roots’ resident human beat box, Scratch, and his The Embodiment of Instrumentation.

And how about those soundtracks to go with the summer movie blockbusters? This week’s notables are “Getting There,” the latest Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen adventure which bills the twins as “Sweet 16 and licensed to drive”; and music from and inspired by “Scooby-Doo,” featuring Outkast, Kylie Minogue and Lil’ Romeo, which might just be better than the movie itself. Ruuh-oh!
