New releases for the week of April 12, 2011

First matter of business. Record store day is this Saturday, April 16. This means that a bunch of artists will put out a ton of various exclusives for indie retailers. We avoided listing many of the vinyl-only, limited-edition, and so on below. But a few of note that we did include below are for The Decemberists and Gorillaz.

Of course, this is all aside from the usual slew of Tuesday releases, which is pretty hefty and impressive this week. The debut of Pretty Reckless, the Taylor Momsen of Gossip Girl fronted band, is certainly one to file under interesting. On the heavily anticipated side of things, new ones from Elbow and TV on the Radio are sure to peak interest.

Maybe because of Record Store Day coming up, indie labels have a strong showing this week as well. Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls, Low, and Panda Bear are all sure to get plenty of attention from blogs.

And, as a personal favorite of ours, Quintron returns with a live album (pictured).
