New Music Tuesday: St. Vincent, Conor Oberst, Pink Mountaintops

A great week for new releases this week. The standout in the crowd, for me at least, is the St. Vincent's second album, Actor. I know it's a little early in the year to be declaring favorite albums of the year but this is easily a top contender for me.

Also out this week is Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band's Outer South. I've been listening to this album a lot since NPR started streaming this album in its entirety last week. I also recommend checking out the album Outside Love from Pink Mountaintops.

Here is a full list of this weeks recommended album:

Akron/Family: Set Em Wild, Set Em Free

Arctic Monkeys: At the Apollo (CD with Bonus DVD)

British Sea Power: Man of Aran (CD+DVD)

Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band: Outer South

Double Dagger: More

Horrors: Primary Colours

Mika Miko: We Be Xuxa

New York Dolls: 'Cause I Sez So

Pink Mountaintops: Outside Love
