New Music Tuesday - New CD Releases - Feb. 28, 2012

I suppose the big title for this week comes from The Cranberries, who return with their first new album new album in 10 years. They had a nice run of hits throughout the '90s, beginning with the love "Linger." I actually saw them live once. They were opening for someone. It will cost you all more money than you have to get me to admit who that was. Either way, they're back with a new set and its out this week.

I'll be stunned if our own Mat Brewster doesn't find a way to get himself a copy of the new Lyle Lovett album Release Me, featuring cameos from k.d. lang, Kat Edmonson and Sara and Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek, Works Progress Administration, Fiction Family).

I will eventually pull the trigger on the massive Pink Floyd The Wall immersion box set because I love Floyd, Wall, and I bought the Dark Side and Wish You Were Here sets and I feel somehow compelled to complete the series. The goodies in The Wall aren't quite as overwhelming as the other two massive box sets but I'm going to have one of these because I'm me and it's what I do. I even have a little space cleared off on a shelf for it to sit alongside the other two. You could try bribing me to admit the show I attended to help me defray the costs but I still don't think it will work.

Friend of the site Mark Saleski is likely making plans to get to his indie store of choice so he can score a copy of Carolina Chocolate Drops new set for Nonesuch, Leaving Eden. I've been meaning to check this trio out and have yet to do it, so I've now made a note in my Clear app to get on Spotify soon and give them a right good listening. In the meantime, they have a new record out and you should probably check it out.

One more item worth mentioning is a slew of Live From Austin, TX releases, wherein several artists who have performed on the long-running series Austin City Limits are having their performances issued on CD. Some of them may have been released before but I'm not sure about all of them. Check out our entire list here and see if there's one you can't live without.
