This Week's Interesting Music Releases (June 2nd, 2009)

I haven't heard Neil Young's 8-CD box set Neil Young Archives, Vol. 1: 1963-1972 yet, but this could be my favorite box set of 2009 with over 40 previously unreleased tracks.

Young isn't the only veteran rocker with a release this week, Elvis Costello drops Secret, Profane and Sugarcane tomorrow as well.

Aside from the Neil Young box set and the Elvis Costello disc, the week abounds with worthwhile releases. From what has already been sent my way, I can strongly recommend Cass McCombs' Catacombs, Diane Birch's Bible Belt, Girl in a Coma's Trio B.C., Patrick Wolf's The Bachelor (which very well may make my year-end favorite albums list), and The Sounds' Crossing the Rubicon.

What new music can you recommend this week? What's on your shopping list? Did I miss any releases?
