This Week's Interesting Music Releases (January 19th, 2010)

Spoon's highly anticipated seventh album Transference hits stores tomorrow.

EELS' End Times is the band's eighth studio album, a sharply written lo-fi effort centered on frontman Mark Everett's divorce.

Two albums by underrated and talented singer-songwriters, Josephine Foster's Graphic as a Star and Barton Carroll's Together You & I, are highly recommended, as is Surfer Blood's Astro Coast.

Miles Davis: The Complete Columbia Album Collection is officially out today in the U.S., a 71-disc (70 CDs and 1 DVD) box set.

Two tribute albums caught my eye this week, Almost You: The Songs of Elvis Costello (featuring Matt Pond PA, Okkervil River, and others), and the Italian compilation Clowns And Jugglers - A Tribute To Syd Barrett (featuring Roses Kings Castles and others).

Vinyl reissues of Heartless Bastards' Stairs and Elevators and The Black Keys: Rubber Factory (a picture disc) are the week's reissue highlights.

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