This Week's Interesting CD Releases (October 30th)

Of all the week's releases I have heard so far, the soundtrack to the Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There has held the most appeal. Featuring indie artists from Sonic Youth to Yo La Tengo to Jeff Tweedy, this could be my favorite compilation of the year.

The soundtrack to the Joy Division biopic Control is also out tomorrow, along with US releases of three of the band's remastered albums with bonus material, Closer, Still, and Unknown Pleasures.

Other notable reissues include two Tegan and Sara discs, If It Was You and So Jealous.

Of the remaining discs, I can strongly recommend Nicole Atkins' debut album, Neptune City and Who Goes There by Ian Ball (of Gomez).

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?
