This week is all about the return of Sleater-Kinney, but you'd be a fool to miss out on The Decemberists's new album, and the release of Viet Cong's stunning debut release.

Below you'll find a list of key albums/singles released today, along with links to our reviews (the ones in blue). Due to our review policy (up to two weeks before release, and in some cases the week following the release), a lot of the albums/singles won't have reviews attached to them, but hopefully this will act as a handy shopping list to take to your local record store.

If you'd like to see a list of future album releases, head here. For single releases head here.
