This Week's Interesting Music Releases - April 10th, 2012

The highly anticipated Alabama Shakes' debut album Boys and Girls officially hits stores tomorrow.

Amadou and Mariam's Folila, Choir of Young Believers' Rhine Gold, Emily Wells' Mama, and M. Ward's A Wasteland Companion are all albums I can strongly recommend from this week's crop of new music.

The reissue highlights are two Sparklehorse vinyl reissues, Dreamt For Light Years In The Belly Of A Mountain and It's A Wonderful Life.
