This Week's Interesting Music Releases - March 18, 2016

Richmond Fontaine

Willy Vlautin once again proves himself one of our finest songwriters on Richmond Fontaine's You Can't Go Back If There Is Nothing To Go Back To.

Bitchin Bajas and Bonnie Prince Billy's Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties, Boris With Merzbow's Gensho, and Damien Jurado's Visions Of Us On The Land are other new albums I can recommend.

A vinyl reissue of Loretta Lynn's album Van Lear Rose and Pere Ubu's 4-LP box set Architecture of Language 1979-1982 are also in stores this week.
