This Week's Interesting Music Releases - June 3, 2016


In a relatively quiet week for new albums I can recommend The Kills' Ash & Ice, Ladyhawke's Wild Things, Psychic Ills' Inner Journey Out, and Steve Gunn's Eyes On The Lines

Reissues include vinyl editions of two Smiths compilations (Louder Than Bombs, The World Won't Listen) and four Pink Floyd albums (London 1966 - 1967, More, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets).
