This Week's Interesting Music Releases (September 22nd 2009)

Monsters of Folk's debut album is out tomorrow on CD, and the collaborative project of Conor Oberst, Jim James, M. Ward and Mike Mogis is one of the year's most pleasant musical surprises.

Crayon Angel: A Tribute to the Music of Judee Sill is one of the year's best tribute albums, and includes contributions from Beth Orton, Bill Callahan, and Final Fantasy.

Other albums I have heard and can strongly recommend this week include Amy Millan's Masters of the Burial, Castanets' Texas Rose, The Thaw & The Beasts, Hallelujah the Hills' Colonial Drones, Le Loup's Family, Owen's New Leaves, Rose Melberg's Homeade Ship, and Vic Chesnutt's At the Cut.

Reissues of note this week include the Beastie Boys' remastered Hello Nasty (complete with bonus disc of rarities) and three Mudhoney discs on vinyl (Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, Mudhoney, and Superfuzz Bigmuff ),
