This Week's Interesting CD Releases

Jens Lekman's Night Falls Over Kortedala hit #1 on the Swedish pop album charts, and finally gets a US release tomorrow.

Indie music fans have plenty of worthy choices among the week's releases. I can strongly recommend the Fiery Furnaces new disc Widow City, Enon's Grass Geysers...Carbon Clouds, Doveman's With My Left Hand I Raise the Dead, Beirut's The Flying Club Cup, Band of Horses' Cease to Begin, and Scout Niblett's This Fool Can Die Now.

A must-have reissue for Viva Voce fans this week is the double CD release of Lovers, Lead the Way/The Heat Can Melt Your Brain, completely remastered with bonus tracks. Other notable reissues include three discs by Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, two by the Sun City Girls, and Enon's Believo!

For your winter holiday mix CD needs, the Smithereens follow their full album cover of the Beatle's Meet the Beatles with Christmas With the Smithereens.

Have I left anything noteworthy off the list? What new music releases can you recommend this week? What should I avoid? What are you picking up?
