This Week's Interesting Music Releases - May 15th, 2012

Occupy This Album is a 4-CD box set that contains 99 tracks from 99 artists in a variety of music genres. Patti Smith, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, and others contribute to this ambitious project that benefits the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Beach House's Bloom, The Green Pajamas' Summer of Lust, and Plushgun's Waste Away are also albums that I can wholly recommend.

If you can't wait for the domestic My Bloody Valentine remastered album to arrive, these UK imports from the band may suffice: EPs: 1988-1991 and Isn't Anything.

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