[new music roundup] 3.20.12

A few of my favorite new releases this week, including the highly anticipated new LP from The Shins and the latest from Lost in the Trees, which I for one am most excited about.  As always, be sure to head on over to Largehearted Boy and Amoeba for many more of this week’s releases.

What are you’re favorite new releases this week?

(1) Day of Anticipation: 2012

Now that 2011 is officially a thing of the past, it’s time to look ahead at what this brand new year has to offer us music fans.  2011 will be tough to top, but with a handful of my favorites all set to release new material, 2012 is shaping up to be a another great year.  So without further ado, here’s some of the music I’m most excited for in 2012…and please let me know who i’ve overlooked.
