This Week's Interesting Music Releases - May 22nd, 2012

Hallelujah the Hills' third album No One Knows What Happens Next, the band's strongest effort yet, is officially released tomorrow. Stream the album (through midnight tonight).

The only other albums I have heard and can wholeheartedly recommend this week are Exitmusic's Passage and Gossip's A Joyful Noise.

Paul McCartney's Ram has been remastered and features a bonus CD filled with outtakes.

Vinyl reissues this week include eight Calexico albums (98-99 Road Map , Aerocalexico, Ancienne Belgique: Live in Brussels, The Book and The Canal, Circo, Scraping, Tell All), three from Uncle Tupelo (March 16-20, 1992, No Depression, Still Feel Gone) two by Lou Reed (Transformer, Rock and Roll Animal) and Patti Smith's Horses.

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