This Week's Interesting CD Releases

Surprisingly, though this week's release list is short, there are plenty of worthwhile releases. Singer-songwriter Polly Paulusma finally releases Fingers & Thumbs in the US, and I can definitely recommend the 1990s' Cookies, Bat for Lashes' Fur & Gold, Shivaree: Tainted Love: Mating Calls & Fight Songs, Port O'Brien: The Wind and the Swell, and Josh Rouse: Country Mouse City House.

Two folk music compilations stand out this week, Putumayo Presents: Americana (which includes songs by Josh Ritter and Old Crow Medicine Show) and Smithsonian Folkways' Old Town School Of Folk Music Song Book, Vol. 2 & 3.

Not willing to pay import prices, I added both the Lloyd Cole and the Commotions Live at the BBC discs (Vol. 1 features three 1984 BBC sessions and a 1984 London performance, Vol. 2 features the band's 1986 Glastonbury festival performance) to my wishlist, in hopes of an eventual (and more economical) US release.

Have I left anything noteworthy off the list? What new music releases can you recommend this week?
