The Apples in Stereo drop their new disc, New
Magnetic Wonder
, this week, along with the US release of Peter Bjorn and John's Writer's Block, the Postmarks' self-titled debut, and Bloc Party's A Weekend In The City. From the lesser-publicized releases, I'm most excited about Over the Rhine's Discount Fireworks and former Velocity Girl Sarah Shannon's solo album, City Morning Song.

What can you recommend or warn against from this week's list? Anything that should also be included?

I'd highly recommend Apples new record. So many hooks, great pop rock and dudes who have been bringing it for awhile.
