This Week's Interesting Music Releases - April 26th, 2011

The biggest release this week (in terms of volume) is the Rolling Stones' The Complete Singles (1971-2006) 45-CD box set.

Steve Earle's latest studio album I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive is in stores tomorrow and is one of the week's strongest releases. His debut novel of the same name is also now available.

A wealth of good music is out this week. I have been recommending these new albums the most: Cass McCombs' Wit's End, Emmylou Harris's Hard Bargain, Explosions in the Sky's Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, The Fresh & Onlys' Secret Walls EP, Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs' No Help Coming, Of Montreal's thecontrollersphere, Thao & Mirah's self-titled album, and Times New Viking's Dancer Equired.

Sleigh Bells' Treats, one of my favorite albums of 2010, is finally available on vinyl.

Among the week's reissues, I am most intrigued by the deluxe edition of Florence and the Machine's Lungs, which includes a CD of bonus material.

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