This Week's Interesting Music Releases (November 10th, 2009)

Tori Amos's holiday album, Midwinter Graces, is in stores tomorrow, as is the Pixies 17-disc Minotaur box set.

Among the discs that have already been sent my way, I can definitely recommend Caroline Herring's Golden Apples of the Sun, Hyperstory's self-titled album, Loch Lomond's Night Bats, and Robyn Hitchcock's live album, I Often Dream of Trains in New York (CD & DVD).

Reissues this week include five remastered Rolling Stones live albums, Flashpoint, Live Licks, Love You Live, Still Life, and Stripped.

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