It's a big week for album releases! There are shiny new LPs from Jenn GrantCastle Frank (In Your Blood), Valley (Lost in Translation), Terry Uyarak (Unnuaq), des hume (FM.era) and Floor Cry. We also have new EPs from Katie Tupper and 9Million.

Elsewhere, Francesco (formerly of the Elwins) announced his debut solo EP with new single "which light," K'naan and the Barenaked Ladies make comebacks (the latter including the lyric, "We're lovin' life, we're lovin' life / It's like a pizza and we want another slice") and Shania Twain and Sunnsetter expand their albums with new bonus tracks.
