This Week's Interesting CD Releases (March 4th, 2008)

Casey Dienel's debut album, Wind-up Canary was the album I most listened to in 2005, eventually making my list of year-end favorites. This week she returns with a full band named White Hinterland, and their album Phylactery Factory offers a bigger, deeper sound to back Dienel's intricate, subtle lyrics.

Two indie rock stalwarts drop albums this week, Stephen Malkmus with the latest Jicks album, Real Emotional Trash and former Twilight Singer and Afghan Whig Greg Dulli with the Gutter Twins' Saturnalia (a collaboration with Mark Lanegan).

Other discs I can strongly recommend include the The Felice Brothers' debut album, Kathleen Edwards' Asking for Flowers, Jim White's Transnormal Skiperoo, Mia Doi Todd's GEA, The Ruby Suns' Sea Lion, and the Weird Weeds' I Miss This.

Two reissues are worth noting, the Sun City Girls' You're Never Alone With a Cigarette (Singles Volume 1) and a remastered edition of Whiskeytown's Strangers Almanac (cmplete with bonus tracks).
