Weekly New Music Releases - 3/25/08

Not nearly as many new releases as March 18th.
Albums Released on 3/25/08

Things I’ve Heard:
The Raconteurs: Consolers of the Lonely (Third Man / Warner Bros.) – I’ve got a vinyl copy and it didn’t come with a download card, so I’ve barely listened to it. My first impression is that it’s better than the last one (which was just okay). Detractors can’t seem to decide if it’s got a crappy, glossy 1970s arena rock vibe or if it was too rushed. Most critics seem to like it though. See them at Coachella on 4/25.

Other Noteworthy Releases:
The B-52’s [at the Greek on 6/28], De Novo Dahl, Justin Townes Earle, Elf Power [at Spaceland on 4/19], Excepter [at the Echo on 4/26] (mp3), Ghostface Killah b-side collection, Gnarls Barkley, Guilty Simpson, Head of Femur (mp3 and mp3), Jesus & Mary Chain reissues, Leatherheads s/t, Lemonheads reissue, Morrissey greatest hits, Panic at the Disco, A Silver Mt. Zion, Singer, Triclops!, Under Byen
