This Week's Interesting CD Releases (December 18th)

Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo releases Alone - The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo tomorrow, but the release I am picking up is another side-project, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood's score for the film, There Will Be Blood.

The Daniel Johnston tribute disc, The Late Great Daniel Johnston: Discovered Covered has been remastered, and is a must-have for any fan of the singer-songwriter. The double disc release includes one disc of covers as well as a disc of the original songs. The covers disc includes:

"My Life is Starting Over Again", Teenage Fanclub with Jad Fair
"Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Your Grievances", Clem Snide
"Impossible Love", Gordon Gano
"Living Life", Eels
"Walking the Cow", TV on the Radio
"Good Morning You", The Rabbit
"Sorry Entertainer", Calvin Johnson
"Devil Town", Bright Eyes
"Dream Scream", Death Cab for Cutie
"True Love Will Find You in the End", Beck
"Go", Sparklehorse with The Flaming Lips
"Blue Clouds", Mercury Rev
"Love Not Dead", Thistle LLC
"Like a Monkey in the Zoo", Vic Chesnutt
