Are you excited for any new releases this week?

I was looking at the upcoming release calendar on Metacritic on Monday evening and found that quite a few records I had been looking forward to are finally being released this week. Overall, this looks like one of the best weeks for new releases in a long time.

I had gotten copies of the new records from Pete Doherty, The Decemberists and Amadou & Mariam in either my actual or virual mailboxes recently (although they were all at the very end of last week and I had not had the chance to review them, so don't ask me if they are worth your time/money or not – yet). I'm also really anxious to hear the new Royksopp album (obviously) and have heard nothing but positive things about Fever Ray.

Anything you're excited for or I should check out? Here's the full list (from Metacritic) of new releases that will be hitting your favorite record store this Tuesday:
