This Week's Interesting Music Releases (March 16, 2010)

SXSW week usually means no big indie music releases, but this week bucks the trend and features the new Drive-By Truckers album The Big To Do and the White Stripes live CD Under Great White Northern Lights (also available on DVD) out tomorrow.

Of the rest of the new releases, I can strongly recommend Devon Sproule's Don't Hurry for Heaven!, Old Man Luedecke's My Hands Are on Fire and other Love Songs, and Neon Trees' Habits

The Runaways' Mercury Albums Anthology reissues the band's four Mercury albums, The Runaways, Queens of Noise, Live in Japan, and Waitin' For the Night on 2 CDs.

Light in the Attic Records once again works its remaster magic on Lou Bond's 1974 self-titled album.

What new music can you recommend this week? What's on your shopping list?
