This Week's Interesting Music Releases - July 12th, 2011

I am most looking forward to the 25th anniversary edition of R.E.M.'s Life's Rich Pageant, which as been remastered and includes a 19-track bonus CD of demos.

Another reissue worth noting this week is the 4-LP Dead Can Dance's DCD || Box Set.

The new albums I can recommend include Army Navy's Last Place, Dirty Mittens' Heart of Town, The Middle East's ''I Want That You Are Always Happy'', Oax's This Distance, Washed Out's Within and Without, and William Elliott Whitmore's Field Songs.

Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward contribute several songs to the Winnie the Pooh soundtrack.

The Real Tuesday Weld's The Last Werewolf is a soundtrack to Glen Duncan's new novel of the same name.

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