This Week's Interesting Music Releases (November 17th, 2009)

Dave Rawlings Machine: A Friend of a Friend is the solo debut of longtime Gillian Welch sideman Dave Rawlings, and may be the finest folk album I have heard all year.

Author Rick Moody's band, the Wingdale Community Singers releases Spirit Duplicator tomorrow.

Reissues of note include David Bowie's Space Oddity (with bonus CD) and The Fall's Hex Enduction Hour (with bonus CD). Four Blood Brothers albums are also being reissued, three with a CD of extra material.
