This Week's Interesting Music Releases - December 7, 2010

Daft Punk's Tron Legacy soundtrack is the highlight of the week's music releases.

Other new releases I can strongly recommend include Duffy's Endlessly, Gospel Music's Duettes, Liz Janes' Say Goodbye, and Two Cow Garage's Sweet Saint Me.

Sufjan Stevens' All Delighted People EP is also available on CD this week, after being out digitally for several months.

Bonnie Prince Billy releases a holiday single with Trembling Bells, New Year's Eve's the Loneliest Night of the Year.

The Feist documentary Look at What the Light Did Now is in stores tomorrow, and includes a music CD along with the film DVD.

Bob Dylan's The Original Mono Recordings, which collects his first eight studio albums as well as an early live performance, is out on vinyl this week, as is Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine.
