This Week's Interesting Music Releases - June 3, 2014

Parquet Courts

Parquet Courts' Sunbathing Animal is by far my favorite new album this week.

Centro-matic's Take Pride in Your Long Odds, Gabriel Kahane's The Ambassador, and The Orwells' Disgraceland are other new releases I can recommend.

Remastered and expanded editions of the first three Led Zeppelin albums (Led Zeppelin: I, Led Zeppelin: II, III) and Morrissey's Vauxhall & I are the reissue highlights, along with a 5-disc (4-CD, 1-DVD) box set release of Soundgarden's Superunknown album.

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