This Week's Interesting CD Releases

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder's debut solo album, the soundtrack to the film Into the Wild, is out this week, along with long-awaited debuts by two singer-songwriters I have followed for some time, Placelessness by Alina Simone and Kismet by Jesca Hoop. Kevin Drew releases his solo debut disc, Spirit If..., as well, and Hard-Fi drops their sophomore effort with the "No Album Art" cover, Once Upon a Time In the West, in the US.

Nothing Is Free by Corn Sister Carolyn Mark is alt-country at its husky-voiced finest, and Fog's Ditherer keeps rocking itself into my CD player...

Discs I haven't heard yet but am highly anticipating include Jamie Cullum's In the Mind of Jamie Cullum, the Green Pajamas' Box of Secrets: Northern Gothic 2, and Jana Hunter's Carrion. Are these worth picking up?

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