This Week's Interesting Music Releases - May 12, 2015

The Tallest Man On Earth

The Tallest Man On Earth's Dark Bird Is Home is by far my favorite new music release this week.

Other albums I can recommend include Crocodiles' Boys, Patrick Watson's Love Songs For Robots, Rhett Miller's The Traveler, Surfer Blood's 1000 Palms, and The Weather Station: Loyalty.

Actor David Duchovny's album Hell Or Highwater and Leonard Cohen's Can't Forget: A Souvenir of the Grand Tour, which collects rarities recorded on his last tour, are also in stores.

Archival releases include vinyl reissues of two Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds albums, Henry's Dream and Murder Ballads.
