This Week's Interesting Music Releases - September 17, 2013

Elvis Costello and The Roots

Elvis Costello's collaboration with The Roots, Wise Up Ghost, is in stores tomorrow.

Singer-songwriter Wesley Stace hangs up his John Wesley Harding pseudonym with his smart and worthwhile self-titled album.

Bill Callahan's Dream River, Blouse's Imperium, Crystal Stilts' Nature Noir, Potty Mouth's Hell Bent, Said the Whale's Hawaiii, and San Fermin's self-titled disc are all albums I can strongly recommend this week.

Mike Doughty covers Soul Coughing songs on his new album Circles Super Bon Bon Sleepless....

Archival releases include The Band's Live at the Academy of Music 1971 (a 5-disc box set) and Grateful Dead's Sunshine Daydream (Veneta, OR, 8/27/72) (a 4-disc box set).
