Featured among this week’s new releases is Soundgarden’s 20th Anniversary Edition of “Superunknown.”
Camper Van Beethoven, "El Camino Real" (429): The versatile California troupe delivers a grittier, earthier companion album to last year's "comeback" set "La Costa Perdida."
Fu Manchu, "Gigantoid" (At the Dojo): The stoner rockers from California come out in typically dense, swinging fashion on their first new set in five years.
King Buzzo, "This Machine Kills Artists" (Ipecac): An acoustic solo outing by the Melvins' Buzz Osbourne, although given where he comes from you can be assured it's not some hippy-dippy folk record.
The Orwells, "Disgraceland" (Canvasback/Atlantic): The second full album from the youthful Chicago quintet sounds even more assured than the buzz-making 2012 debut "Remember When."
Mike Mattison, "You Can't Fight Love" (Landslide): The first solo outing by the vocalist known for his work with the Derek Trucks Band and the Tedeschi Trucks Band.
Rich Robinson, "The Ceaseless Sight" (Circle Sound/The End): The Black Crowes guitarist and co-founder recorded his third solo album in Woodstock. N.Y.
Soundgarden, "Superunknown (20th Anniversary Edition)" (A&M/UMe): The Seattle quartet celebrates two decades since its breakthrough release with a treasure trove of rarities, B-sides, unreleased tracks, demos and rehearsal and live tapes.
Voyager, "V" (Nightmare): The Australian prog-metal troupe funded its fifth album via a Kickstarter campaign.
