This Week's Interesting Music Releases (November 3rd, 2009)

Reissues are the stars release list this week, with remastered editions of Nirvana's Bleach, two Devo albums (Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and Freedom of Choice), and the Rolling Stones' Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out! The Rolling Stones In Concert all with bonus material and in stores tomorrow.

If your tastes run toward vinyl, Merge reissues Neutral Milk Hotel's two albums (In The Aeroplane Over The Sea and Neutral Milk Hotel: On Avery Island) tomorrow.

Among the week's new releases, Girls in Trouble's self-titled debut is easily my personal favorite, an indie folk gem.

Other albums I have heard and can recommend include Jookabox's Dead Zone Boys, Molina & Johnson's self-titled disc, Morrissey's b-sides compilation Swords, and The Swimmers' People Are Soft.

Robert Pollard releases Guided By Voices' Suitcase 3: Up We Go Now tomorrow, his third 100-song 4-CD box set of unreleased songs and snippets.

What new music can you recommend this week? What's on your shopping list?
