This Week's Interesting CD Releases (February 26th, 2008)

Singer-songwriter Tift Merritt releases Another Country, her strongest and most diverse album yet tomorrow.

The most interesting release this week is the Cowboy Junkies' Trinity Revisited, where the band returned to the church they recorded The Trinity Session and re-recorded the songs from that album with the help from Ryan Adams, Natalie Merchant, Vic Chesnutt, and more guest artists.

Other discs I can strongly recommend include Beach House's Devotion, the Dirtbombs' We Have You Surrounded, and Ghostland Observatory's Robotique Majestique.

Bob Pollard fans can pick up his latest Psycho & the Birds release, We've Moved.

Interesting reissues available this week include three early Apples in Stereo albums, The Discovery of a World Inside the Moone
Fun Trick Noisemaker
Her Wallpaper Reverie and the Jason and the Scorchers debut album and EP, Fervor/Lost & Found.
