This Week's Interesting CD Releases

Indie rock fans have plenty of choices this week among new music releases. The New Pornographers' Challengers and Rilo Kiley's major label debut, Under the Blacklight, are the high profile albums, but I can also strongly recommend Josh Ritters' The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter, Jeremy Enigk's The Missing Link, Imperial Teen's The Hair, The TV, The Baby And The Band, Ryan Ferguson's Only Trying to Help, and Over the Rhine's Trumpet Child.

Notable reissues this week include three albums by singer-songwriter Lee Hazlewood, Lee Hazlewood-ism: Its Cause and Cure, Something Special, and The Very Special World of Lee Hazlewood.

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