This Week's Interesting Music Releases - March 31, 2015

Sufjan Stevens

Sufjan Stevens's Carrie & Lowell is the week's premiere release.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor's Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress, Lower Dens' Escape From Evil, Ryley Walker's Primrose Green, and Simon Joyner's Grass, Branch, & Bone are other albums I can recommend.

Death Cab for Cutie's Kintsugi is also out today.

Archival releases include a reissue of Ride's OX4 album and the 32-track The Best Of The Grateful Dead.
