This Week's Interesting Music Releases (September 23rd, 2008)

TV on the Radio releases one of the year's most anticipated albums tomorrow, Dear Science.

Other albums I can strongly recommend include the second solo album by Rilo Kiley singer Jenny Lewis, Acid Tongue; the All Girl Summer Fun Band's third album, Looking Into It, Blitzen Trapper's Furr; Brightblack Morning Light's Motion to Rejoin; Friendly Fires' self-titled debut full-length; Golden Smog's greatest hits compilation, Stay Golden, Smog: The Best of Golden Smog; Kat Ex & Jon Langford'sKatJonBand; and Mogwai's The Hawk is Howling (and that's just a small sample in a great music release week).

Four remastered Replacements albums are out this week with bonus tracks: All Shook Down, Don't Tell a Soul, Pleased to Meet Me, and Tim.

Also reissued this week are three Danielson Familie vinyl releases: Fetch the Compass Kids, Tell Another Joke at the Ol' Chopping Block, and Tri-Danielson!!! (Alpha | Omega)
