This Week's Interesting Music Releases (July 8th, 2008)

One of my most anticipated albums of the year,Beck's Modern Guilt, drops tomorrow.

The most interesting release this week combines three of my favorite things, baseball, Steve Wynn, and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5, Young Fresh Fellows). The Baseball Project: Volume 1: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails brings these talented musicians together to share their love of America's pastime in song.

Other discs I have heard and can strongly recommend include CocoRosie's God Has a Voice, She Speaks Through Me 7", The Capstan Shafts' wonderfully lo-fi Fixation Protocols, Dutchess & The Duke's She's The Dutchess, He's The Duke, Patti Smith & Kevin Shields' collaboration The Coral Sea, and Ratatat's LP3.

I am definitely picking up the Fiery Furnaces' vinyl reissues of Blueberry Boat, The Fiery Furnaces EP, and Gallowsbird's Bark on vinyl. Other vinyl reissues I am buying include British Sea Power's Open Season; Xiu Xiu's Fabulous Muscles
La Foret, and my favorite M. Ward album, Transfiguration of Vincent.

What new music releases have you excited this week? Have any let you down?
