This Week's Interesting Music Releases - April 22, 2014

Black Prairie

Fortune by Black Prairie (the Decemberists minus Colin M, Clint Mansell's soundtrack for the film Filth, and especially TEEN's The Way and Color are the new albums I can recommend this week.

Farewell Transmission (Music of Jason Molina) is a tribute album to the Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. frontman which includes contributions from My Morning Jacket, Sarah Jaffe, and others.

Reissues include XTC's Skylarking: Corrected Polarity Edition, a remastered and expanded edition of the band's 1986 album.
