This Week's Interesting Music Releases - August 30, 2011

Beirut's new album The Rip Tide is Zach Condon's most introspective effort yet.

Glen Campbell's Ghost On the Canvas features the veteran singer-songwriter covering songs by Paul Westerberg, Robert Pollard, and others.

Live At KEXP: Volume Seven collects in-studio performances by Sharon Van Etten, The Tallest Man on Earth, The Head and the Heart and others, and benefits the Seattle public radio station.

Among the rest of the releases, I can strongly recommend Dirty Beaches' Badlands, Hella's Tripper, and Tinariwen's Tassili

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