This Week's Interesting Music Releases (August 4th, 2009)

This week's music release list may be short, but it contains a surprising quantity of great music.

Of the week's releases, Japandroids' Post-Nothing has spent the most time in my CD player and is inching its way up my ever-changing albums of the year list.

My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James (under the moniker of Yim Yames) releases his solo EP of George Harrison covers tomorrow.

This week Joe Pernice drops both his new novel, It Feels So Good When I Stop (called by Tom Perrotta, "a hard-boiled slacker chronicle of heartbreak and self-renewal") and its companion album of the same name.

Frrom what has already been sent my way, I can also strongly recommend The Fruit Bats' The Ruminant Band, Julian Plenti's Julian Plenti Is Skyscraper, Lightning Dust's Infinite Light, and Throw Me The Statue's Creaturesque.

Seven Oasis albums are reissued on vinyl this week:

Be Here Now (2-LP)
Definitely Maybe (2-LP)
Don't Believe the Truth (1-LP)
Heathen Chemistry (2-LP)
The Masterplan (2-LP)
Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2-LP)
(What's the Story) Morning Glory? (2-LP)

Another vinyl reissue worth picking up this week is my favorite Guided By Voices album, Under the Bushes, Under the Stars.

What new music can you recommend this week? What's on your shopping list? Have I left any interesting releases off the list?
