This Week's Interesting Music Releases - September 27th, 2011

This week's music release lists offers a tantalizing variety of new albums, box sets, and reissues, and even a new Bangles album, Sweetheart of the Sun.

Wilco's The Whole Love is easily the week's marquee release, and on the first couple of spins my favorite album of theirs since Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.

From what I have already heard, I can also strongly recommend Dominant Legs' Invitation, Dum Dum Girls' Only in Dreams, Matthew Sweet's Modern Art, Pieta Brown's Mercury, and Sleeper Agent's Celebrasian.

Note of Hope: A Celebration of Woody Guthrie features a diverse group of artists including Ani DiFranco, Nellie McKay, and Pete Seeger covering the folk legend's songs.

Pink Floyd's The Discovery Studio Album Box Set is a 16-CD box set that contains 14 albums and a 60-page artwork booklet. All 14 albums have been remastered and are available individually as well.

Nirvana's Nevermind has been remastered for its 20th anniversary and is available in a variety of formats including vinyl and CD box sets.

Darklands and Psychocandy by the Jesus & Mary Chain have been remastered and are out this week with CDs of bonus material.

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