This Week's Interesting Music Releases - May 20, 2014

Haley Bonar

Haley Bonar's album Last War is my favorite new music this week.

I can also recommend Alana Amram and The Rough Gems' Spring River and Jolie Holland's Wine Dark Sea.

Reissues include a remastered and expanded edition of Oasis' Definitely Maybe, vinyl edition of The Cramps' Flamejob album and R.E.M.'s Unplugged 1991/2001: The Complete Sessions.
