Notable New Releases This Week

While flipping through my Sunday circular in this week’s newspaper, I noticed something rather interesting in the new release field. There are a bunch of quality CDs available for purchase this week.

Tonic – A Casual Affair, the Best of Tonic
Pete Yorn – Back and Fourth
Street Sweeper Social Club – Street Sweeper Social Club
Matt Nathanson – Some Made Hope
Mat Kearny – City of Black & White
Transformers – Revenge of the Fallen Soundtrack
Dream Theater – Black Clouds & Silver Linings

That’s an awful lot of superb new releases for one week. In addition to all of those, Incubus released their greatest hits 2-disc set last Tuesday. Cousin Ryo is definitely picking up the Pete Yorn (expect a review in the near future), and very interested in hearing the latest from Matt Nathanson and Mat Kearny. I’m also highly curious about Street Sweeper Social Club. It would be nice to hear what Tom Morello has done for this album.

Which new release are you most looking forward to this summer?

Comments are open. Feel free to post some.
