This Week's Interesting Music Releases - April 1, 2016


This week I can especially recommend Andrew Bird's Are You Serious, Bleached's Welcome The Worms, Explosions in the Sky's The Wilderness, Laura Gibson's Empire Builder, and Tacocat's Lost Time.

The 4-CD box set Music of Morocco: Recorded By Paul Bowles 1959 is intriguing.

Archival releases include four reissued Arthur Russell albums (Let's Go Swimming, Love Is Overtaking Me, Springfield, World of Echo) and a white vinyl 10th anniversary edition of Sufjan Stevens' Illinois.
