This Week's Interesting Music Releases - April 17th, 2012

This week's new music list is long and varied. I can strongly recommend the following albums: Horse Feathers' Cynic's New Year, Maps & Atlases' Beware and Be Grateful, Mariee Sioux's Gift for the End, Moonface's With Siinai: Heartbreaking Bravery (the new album from Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown), and Spiritualized's Sweet Hearth Sweet Light.

Among the reissues is a new edition of Billy Bragg and Wilco's Mermaid Avenue: The Complete Sessions.

The 14-DVD box set Grateful Dead: All the Years Combine contains over 38 hours of live performance footage, should make any fan of the band happy.

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