This Week's Interesting CD Releases

The only two new releases I can wholeheartedly recommend are the Magic Numbers' sophomore release, Those the Brokes and Mick Harvey's Two of Diamonds.

Also this week, M.I.A. releases her first single, Boyz, from her new album, KALA. I haven't heard the Meat Puppets reunion album, Rise To Your Knees, is it worth picking up?

Reissues released this week include two Grant Lee Buffalo albums (Fuzzy and Copperopolis), as well as Robyn Hitchcock's 1999 release, Jewels for Sophia.

Have I left anything noteworthy off the list? What new music releases can you recommend this week?
