This Week's Interesting Music Releases - March 20th, 2012

The Shins' Port of Morrow is one of the year's most anticipated albums, and easily my favorite new album of the week.

I can also strongly recommend Conduits' self-titled album, Lee Ranaldo's Between the Times and the Tides (the debut solo album from the Sonic Youth member), Lost in the Trees' A Church That Fits Our Needs, and Tanlines' Mixed Emotions.

Madonna's Complete Studio Albums 1983 - 2008 is an 11-CD box set that collects all of the pop star's albums from the first quarter century of her career.

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