This Week's Interesting CD Releases

Conor Oberst releases his latest Bright Eyes album, Cassadaga, tomorrow, and to my ears it's his strongest yet. Other highly recommended CD releases this week include Blonde Redhead's 23; CocoRosie's uneven but still lovable The Adventures Of Ghosthorse & Stillborn; one pf my favorite albums of the year so far, Laura Veirs' Saltbreakers; and Scott Miller & the Commonwealth's live album, Reconstruction.

The remastered (and partially re-recorded) Palo Santo by Shearwater is another reissue gem from Matador, complete with new artwork and a bonus disc of outtakes.

I'm headed out tomorrow to pick up Madlib's The Other Side: Los Angeles, what else can you recommend from this week's CD release list.
