This Week's Interesting Music Releases (November 25th, 2008)

With the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. this week, albums are released today instead of tomorrow stateside...

Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreak is released today, along with the Paul McCartney collaboration Fireman's Electric Arguments. Other than that, the pickings are slim as the year winds down...

Reissues this week include the remastered R.E.M.'s Murmur (which comes with a bonus disc of b-sides and unreleased material), Death Cab For Cutie's Something About Airplanes (also remastered with a bonus disc), along with vinyl reissues of the Replacements' Tim and Asobi Seksu's Citrus.
