This Week's Interesting Music Releases - January 11th, 2011

A relatively meager music release week is bolstered by the new British Sea Power album, Valhalla Dancehall.

Other releases I have heard and can strongly recommend include Wire's Red Barked Tree, Abigail Washburn's City of Refuge, Tape Deck Mountain's Secret Serf EP, and especially Broken Records' Let Me Come Home.

Reissues out this week include a vinyl edition of one of my favorite albums of all time, X's More Fun in the New World.

What new releases are you picking up this week? What can you recommend? Have I left anything noteworthy off the list?
