This Week's Interesting Music Releases (July 28th, 2009)

The Rolling Stones Box Set collects 13 remastered post-1971 albums from the band, with space for next year's release of the remastered Exile on Main Street.

In a slow week for marquee releases, I have heard and can definitely recommend Starflyer 59's Ghosts of the Past, Howling Bells' Radio Wars, Kevin Hearn's Havana Winter, and Kieran Kane's Somewhere Beyond the Roses.

Putumayo continues to put together amazing world music compilations and this week releases Putumayo Kids Presents: Picnic Playground and Putumayo Presents: Brazilian Cafe

Three Elbow albums are reissued this week: Asleep in the Back, Cast of Thousands, and Leaders of the Free World.
