This Week's Interesting Music Releases - March 27th, 2012

The first week of spring brings four worthwhile albums I can wholeheartedly recommend: La Sera's Sees the Light, Miike Snow's Happy to You, Retribution Gospel Choir's The Revolution EP, and THEESatisfaction's awE naturalE.

Paul Weller's latest solo effort Sonik Kicks is also in stores tomorrow, as is Madonna's new studio effort MDNA.

Two Elvis Costello albums are reissued on vinyl, his country covers collection Almost Blue and Imperial Bedroom.
