This Week's Interesting Music Releases - April 21, 2015

Rocky Votolato

Rocky Votolato's intense and personal Hospital Handshakes is easily my favorite new album this week.

Built to Spill's Untethered Moon, San Fermin's Jackrabbit, and Say Lou Lou's Lucid Dreaming are other releases I can recommend.

Reissues include vinyl editions of two Modest Mouse albums, Building Nothing Out of Something and Interstate 8.
