This Week's Interesting Music Releases - June 25, 2013

Femi Kuti

A light summer music release week still has several worthwhile listens, including Femi Kuti's No Place For My Dream, Lightning Dust's Fantasy, and Rose Windows' The Sun Dogs.

Nothing Can Hurt Me, the soundtrack to the film of the same name, collects previously unreleased Big Star tracks.

The compilation Sing Me The Songs: Celebrating The Works Of Kate McGarrigle includes contributions from her son Rufus Wainwright, daughters Anna McGarigle and Martha Wainwright, Antony Hegarty, Emmylou Harris, and others.

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