This Week's Interesting Music Releases (March 31st, 2009)

After being available for a couple of weeks digitally, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' third album, It's Blitz! arrives on CD tomorrow.

This week's short music release list can be mostly attributed to last week's Winter Music Conference, but there are some albums I can definitely recommend, including Adam Franklin's (Swervedriver) Spent Bullets, Gomez's A New Tide, Great Lake Swimmers' Lost Channels, Leonard Cohen's Live In London (also available on DVD), Pansy Division's That's So Gay, Peter Bjorn and John: Living Thing, and Wolves in the Throne Room's Black Cascade.

Four Bob Dylan remasters hit store shelves tomorrow in advance of the April 28th release of his latest studio album, Together Through Life: The Basement Tapes , BBefore the Flood, New Morning, and Dylan & the Dead.

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