This Week's Interesting Music Releases - May 14, 2013

Vampire Weekend

Pitchfork gave Vampire Weekend's new album Modern Vampires of the City a 9.3, its highest rating of the year so far.

Small Black's Limits of Desire, Dungeonesse's self-titled album, The Dillinger Escape Plan's One of Us Is the Killer, The Handsome Family's Wilderness, and Sam Amidon's Bright Sunny South are all albums I have heard and can recommend.

The most intriguing album of the week, The Fall's Re-Mit, is available digitally today.

The 25th anniversary edition of R.E.M.'s Green has been remastered and includes a bonus disc of rarities.

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