This Week's Interesting Music Releases (December 15th, 2009)

Animal Collective's Fall Be Kind EP hits stores tomorrow, and along with an import Grizzly Bear vinyl single, While You Wait for the Others, will be my only new release purchase as I focus on completing my holiday gift shopping.

Christmas singles are also showing up more frequently as the holiday approaches, my favorite this week is Laura Marling's Goodbye England (Covered in Snow).

A plethora of vinyl reissues is on tap this week, including discs by Iggy Pop (Lust for Life & The Idiot), Nirvana (In Utero & MTV Live Unplugged), and the Rolling Stones (Between the Buttons.

What new music can you recommend this week? What's on your shopping list? What music are you giving as gifts this year?
