This Week's Interesting Music Releases (March 10th, 2009)

Bishop Allen's new album, Grrr.... hits stores tomorrow, and is another dose of pitch-perfect indie pop goodness from the band.

This week is filled with releases worth your time (and ears). From the albums I have already heard, I can definitely recommend Anni Rossi's Rockwell, Balmorhea's All Is Wild All Is Silent, BLK JKS' Mystery EP, Cursive's Mama, I'm Swollen, Handsome Furs' Face Control, Julie Doiron's I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day, Madeline's White Flag, Mirah's (a)spera, Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band's self-titled disc, and Propagandhi's Supporting Caste

A two-disc remastered edition of Beth Orton's classic 1996 solo debut album Trailer Park is in stores tomorrow. Other notable reissues include a remastered edition of the BoDeans' Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams and reissues of Neva Dinova's self-titled debut and a double CD including Wheat's Medeiros and Hope And Adams.

Lloyd Cole's 4-CD collection of rarities, Cleaning The Ashtray (unfortunately only available as an import in the US) is at the top of my preorder list.

What new releases can you recommend? Have I left anything off the list?
