This Week's Interesting Music Releases (February 9, 2010)

This week brings new albums by The Watson Twins (Talking to You, Talking to Me) and Yeasayer (Odd Blood), but I am more excited by the new releases by singer-songwriters Gil Scott-Heron (I'm New Here) and Kath Bloom (Thin Thin Line).

Among the week's music releases, I can already strongly recommend Allison Moorer's Crows, Phantogram's Eyelid Movies, the incredibly soulful Georgia Anne Muldrow's Kings Ballad, and Hot Chip's One Life Stand.

Putumayo Presents: Rhythm & Blues is yet another strong compilation from Putumayo World Music, combining R&B classics with the latest generation of up and coming talents.

Aside from the three Buzzcocks remastered albums (Another Music in a Different Kitchen, Different Kind of Tension, and Love Bites, all with bonus CDs), this is a slim week for reissues.

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