This Week's Interesting Music Releases - May 19, 2015

Faith No More

Faith No More's Sol Invictus is the band's first new album in 18 years.

I can also recommend Bryce Dessner's Music for Wood and Strings, Holly Herndon's Platform, and Jim O'Rourke's Simple Songs.

Hot Chip's Why Make Sense?, Shilpa Ray's Last Year's Savage, the Fun Home: A New Musical cast recording and a vinyl edition of my favorite album of the year, Torres' Sprinter are also in stores and available to stream online this week.

Archival recordings include a reissue of the 15-CD box set Thelonious Monk: The Complete Riverside Recordings.
