New Releases This Week

Here are some of the more interesting of this week's releases. Discs I've heard are followed by a rating:

Monty Alexander -- Live at the Iridium (Telarc)
Rory Block -- From the Dust (Telarc)
Chatham County Line -- Route 23 (Yep Roc) 3/5
Crooked Fingers -- Dignity and Shame (Merge) 4/5
Petra Haden -- Sings: The Who Sell Out (Bar/None)
Iron and Wine -- Woman King EP (Sub Pop)
Kings of Leon -- Aha Shake Heartbreak (RCA) 3/5
Phoenix -- Live! Thirty Days Ago (Astralwerks)
Scritti Politti -- Early (Sanctuary) [early tracks previously unavailable on CD]
M. Ward -- Transistor Radio (Merge) 3.5/5

Notably absent is MIA's Arular, which has been indefinitely delayed (and is stunning: 4.5/5). The exciting one for me is the new Iron and Wine, which is allegedly very good...
