This Week's Interesting Music Releases - May 6, 2014


tUnE-yArDs' Nikki-Nack is this week's marquee release, an album that has been in constant rotation in my house the past week.

Three other new releases I can recommend are Elephant's Sky Swimming, Fujiya and Miyagi's Artificial Sweeteners, and Lykke Li's I Never Learn.

Other releases include the cast recording of David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's musical Here Lies Love, Brian Eno and David Hyde's collaboration Someday World, and Lily Allen's Sheezus.

Reissues include a remastered edition of Mick Harvey's English covers albums of Serge Gainsbourg songs, Intoxicated Man / Pink Elephants and clear vinyl reissues of the Rolling Stones' 12 x 5 and Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out releases.
