This Week's Interesting Music Releases - April 3rd, 2012

Bear in Heaven's I Love You, It's Cool is another step forward for the band, a synth-filled album that lives up to its reputation as one of the most anticipated albums of 2012.

Great Lake Swimmers' New Wild Everywhere, Of Monsters and Men's My Head Is an Animal, and White Fence's Family Perfume Vol. 1 are also albums I can strongly recommend this week.

Elvis Costello's The Return Of The Spectacular Spinning Songbook captures live performances by the singer-songwriter on his 2011 tour.

Six Smiths albums are reissued on CD: Hatful of Hollow, Louder Than Bombs, Meat Is Murder, The Queen Is Dead, The Smiths, Strangeways Here We Come, and The World Won't Listen.

Vinyl reissues include releases by Bright Eyes (Every Day and Every Night EP, Letting Off the Happiness) and Sondre Lerche (Duper Sessions, Phantom Punch, Two way Monologue).
