This Week's Interesting Music Releases - June 12, 2012

This week bring s a bevy of quality music releases. At first glance I can wholly recommend several, including Dent May's Do Things, Emily Jane White: Ode to Sentience, Hot Chip's In Our Heads, Jaill's Traps, Pop Etc.'s self-titled debut (from the band formerly known as The Morning Benders), The Tallest Man on Earth's There's No Leaving Now, Wintersleep's Hello Hum, and The Young's Dub Egg.

Among the week's reissues are two classic rock albums, The Byrds' Complete Columbia Albums Collection (13-CDs) and E.L.O.'s Classic Albums Collection (11-CDs).

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