This week's Best New Releases includes new tracks from a bunch of artists and bands that we think more people need to hear. Long Beach, California band Avi Buffalo - one of our bands to watch late last year - drop their self-titled, debut album today after a long build up - the band has been rising on the blogger radars and on the mainstream music websites as well over the past six months.

Next, the Alcoholic Faith Mission have released their terrific new LP, Let This Be The Last Night We Care. Common Prayer drop their new LP, There Is A Mountain, today, and if the single, "Us vs. Them" is any indication of the album, than it's one to jot down on the "to get" list.

Even though we've already featured a number of Ariel Pink's new music during the past couple of months, his latest LP officially drops today. Drew Danburry sent us this fantastic country-folk-rock (best way can think to describe it) song, "Nirvana, by Kurt Cobain," that we've played multiple times.

Plus, check out sweet new tracks from The Lights, Sonoi, The Mynabirds, Sonoi, Ceremony, Polock, Frog Eyes, The Pack A.D., Unnatural Helpers, Gogol Bordello, and The Whiskers. We wrap with a new album from Princeton frontman Jesse Kivel and Zinzi Edmundson as the duo Kisses. By the way, we could give a rats ass that Hole (Courtney Love) has a new album out today.
