This Week's Interesting CD Releases (June 17th, 2008)

Indie rock's premiere poet Dave Berman returns with his latest Silver Jews disc, Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea this week. This disc, along with Wolf Parade's sophomore album, At Mount Zoomer, head up yet another strong summer music release week.

Other new releases I can strongly recommend this week include Eef Barzelay's (of Clem Snide) Lose Big, Impossible Shapes' self-titled album, My Brightest Diamond's A Thousand Shark's Teeth, Ponytail's Ice Cream Spiritual, Tilly and the Wall's O, and War on Drugs' Wagonwheel Blues.

I loved Bowerbirds' Hymns for a Dark Horse so much when it was first released last summer that I included it on my list of 2007 favorite albums. Dead Oceans is reissuing the disc this week with two bonus tracks. If you haven't heard it yet, give the album a listen and find out why the Mountain Goats' John Darnielle said of the band, "Only once every ten years or so does one hear a new band this good, this bursting with ideas, this audibly in love with music."

Another interesting reissue is Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson's Pacific Ocean Blue, which is available for the first time on CD in a special edition, 2-disc set.

What new releases have you excited this week? Are there any releases worth adding to the list?
