This Week's Interesting Music Releases - February 26, 2013

Johnny Marr

This week's marquee releases feature musicians better known for their work with other bands, Atoms For Peace's AMOK (with Radiohead's Thom Yorke) and Johnny Marr's The Messenger, the first solo album from the former Smiths' guitarist.

Among the week's releases, I can most recommend Girls Names' The New Life, Grave Babies' Crusher, Mount Moriah's Miracle Temple, and Shout Out Louds' Optica.

Joan Armatrading's new album Starlight drops tomorrow.

Nick Drake's classic album Pink Moon has been once again reissued on vinyl.

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