This Week's Interesting Music Releases (October 27th, 2009)

R.E.M.'s live album, Live at the Olympia (2-CD), finally hits stores tomorrow, along with Devendra Banhart's major label debut What Will Be and The Swell Season's Strict Joy.

From what has already been sent my way, I can strongly recommend BOAT's Setting the Paces, Gemma Ray's Lights Out Zoltar!, Hem's Twelfth Night soundtrack, and Tegan and Sara's Sainthood.

U2 has remastered and expanded its The Unforgettable Fire album. Other reissues of note include five Of Montreal vinyl reissues (Aldhils Arboretum
Bedside Drama: A Petite Tragedy, The Bird Who Ate the Rabbit's Flower, Coquelicot Asleep in the Poppies: A Variety of Whimsical Verse,Early Four Track Recordings) and a 2-LP (with CD) reissue of Wilco's Being There album.
