This Week's Interesting Music Releases - April 15, 2014

Afghan Whigs

The Afghan Whigs' first new album in 16 years, Do to the Beast, is out today.

I can also recommend the following new releases: Cloud Cult's Unplug, Courtney Barnett's The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, Woods' With Light and With Love, and Zee Avi's children's album Zee Avi's Nightlight.

Reissues include two box sets, the 5-disc Bee Gees' The Warner Bros. Years 1987-1991 and the 8-CD Black Sabbath: The Complete Albums 1970-1978.

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