This Week's Interesting Music Releases - May 8th, 2012

A meager week for new music releases brings a handful of albums I have heard and can recommend, including Here We Go Magic's A Different Ship, Michael Hearst's Songs for Unusual Creatures, Royal Headache's self-titled album, and S. Carey's Hoyas EP.

St. Vincent's Stranger Mercy adds a DVD of a liver performance and two music videos to the Strange Mercy CD.

Jack Kerouac: The Complete Collection collects all three of the author's spoken word albums on two CDs.

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