This Week's Interesting Music Releases - July 27, 2010

Paste called Best Coast's Crazy for You "the soundtrack of being young, in love and in the sun" and I have to agree, this is an album that begs to be enjoyed all summer long.

In a relatively slow summer music release week, other new albums I can strongly recommend include Dean & Britta's 13 Most Beautiful… Songs for Andy Warhol's Screen Tests, Futurebirds' Hampton's Lullaby, Jesca Hoop's Hunting My Dress, and Menomena's best album yet, Mines.

If I had a child, I would definitely be picking up Pete Seeger's kids album, Tomorrow's Children.

The reissue list is also weak, with nine Kinks CDs the lone highlight.

What new releases are you picking up this week? Have I left anything noteworthy off the list?
