This Week's Interesting CD Releases (April 22nd, 2008)

Record Store Day may have been last Saturday, but I am headed to my local indie shop tomorrow to pick up the four remastered Replacements albums, Hootenanny, Let It Be
Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash, Stink. Often rumored and much anticipated, the bonus material makes these discs a must-have for fans of the band.

The Replacements remastered editions are hardly the only new music worth checking out this week. Billy Bragg releases his latest album, Mr. Love & Justice in the US tomorrow, and talented Swedish singer-songwriter Anna Ternheim finally gets an album release in the states with Halfway to Fivepoints. Elvis Costello releases his latest album, Momofuku, as a vinyl and digital release. From what I have heard already, I can also strongly recommend Chris Mills' Living in the Aftermath (which pulls its music and lyrics from pop culture sources), El Perro del Mar's From The Valley To The Stars, The Jealous Girlfriends' self-titled debut, Shelley Short's Water for the Day, the Thalia Zedek Band's Liars and Prayers, and Tokyo Police Club's Elephant Shell.

Besides the Replacements discs, the other notable reissue this week is a remastered edition of Love's Forever Changes (complete with bonus disc).

What are you picking up this week? Are there any releases worth adding to the list?
