This Week's Interesting Music Releases (June 3rd, 2008)

Given the quality of the music releases, this has to be my favorite release week of the year so far. I can definitely see a couple of these releases on my year-end list of favorite albums. First and foremost Shearwater's Rook is as strong an album as I have heard all year. Another stellar release is the Centro-matic/South San Gabriel double album, Dual Hawks.

Other albums I have heard and can strongly recommend include Fleet Foxes' self-titled album, Aimee Mann's @#%&! Smilers, Ladytron's Velocifero, Oppenheimer's Take the Whole Midrange and Boost It, and Weezer's Weezer (Red Album).

Radiohead's The Best of is also out this week in three different options: a 1-CD edition, a 2-CD edition, and a 4-album vinyl edition.

What are you picking up this week? Are there any releases worth adding to the list?
