This Week's Interesting Music Releases - August 31, 2018

Anna Calvi

Anna Calvi's Hunter album is her most complex yet, one of the year's strongest releases.

Mogwai's KIN, Saintseneca's Pillar of Na, and Wild Nothing's Indigo are other new releases I can recommend.

Reissues include a vinyl edition of Sufjan Stevens' The Avalanche album.
