This Week's Interesting Music Releases - April 29, 2014

Wye Oak

Wye Oak's Shriek is easily my favorite new album of the week.

I can also recommend The Nels Cline Singers' Macroscope, Olafur Arnalds' score for the film Gimme Shelter, Ought's More Than Any Other Day, and Pattern is Movement's Pattern Is Movement.

Damon Albarn's Everyday Robots, Old 97's Most Messed Up, and the Pixies' Indie Cindy are also albums of note on store shelves today.
