This Week's Interesting CD Releases

Wilco's latest album, Sky Blue Sky, is out today (along with its 5.2 review at Pitchfork).

Rhino releases Genesis: Genesis 1976-1982, a box set, this week, including the remastered Abacab, And Then There Were Three, Duke, A Trick of the Tail, and Wind & Wuthering, complete with bonus DVD discs.

Two Clash-related discs are noteworthy: the soundtrack to the Joe Strummer biopic, The Future Is Unwritten, and the Clash tribute album, The Sandinista! Project.

Among other releases, I can recommend Rufus Wainwright's most political effort yet, Release The Stars, YACHT's I Believe in You. Your Magic Is Real, Utah Carol's Rodeo Queen, Great Northern's Trading Twilight for Daylight, Efterklang's Under Giant Trees, and Au Revoir Simone's The Bird of Music, and am looking forward to samling many more of these releases.

What new releases are you picking up this week? What can you recommend (or warn against)?
