This Week's Interesting Music Releases - July 19th, 2011

Crystal Antlers' Two-Way Mirror, the band's second album, is in stores tomorrow, and is easily my personal favorite release of the week.

Other new albums that I can recommend include Brilliant Colors' Again and Again, Delicate Cutters' Some Creatures, singer-songwriter Holly Throsby's Team, Portugal. The Man's major label debut In the Mountain In the Cloud, Roadside Graves' We Can Take Care of Ourselves, and the new Wilco single I Might.

This week's music release list is overwhelmed by vinyl reissues, most notably the four Ramones discs Leave Home, Ramones, Road to Ruin, and Rocket to Russia (all on 180-gram vinyl).

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