This Week's Interesting Music Releases - February 14th, 2012

Shearwater's Animal Joy is already at the top of my 2012 favorite albums list (along with Sharon Van Etten's Tramp, released last week).

Other albums I can wholeheartedly recommend this week include Heartless Bastards' Arrow, Islands' A Sleep & A Forgetting, The Kills' The Last Goodbye EP, Rosie Thomas's With Love, and Tennis's Young and Old.

Five Flaming Lips albums are reissued on vinyl tomorrow: Clouds Taste Metallic, Hit to Death in the Future Head, The Soft Bulletin, Transmissions From the Satellite Heart, and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.
