This Week's Interesting Music Releases - December 6th, 2011

The year's last major music release week brings two albums that will surely make many year-end lists, The Black Keys' El Camino and The Roots' undun.

Lucero's Mi Secreto De Amor and Tender Forever's Where Are We From EP are the new releases I most wholeheartedly recommend.

PJ Harvey: Let England Shake: 12 Short Films By Seamus Murphy features a video for every song from the singer-songwriter's latest album.

Reissues include the Cramps vinyl box set File Under Sacred Music: Early Singles 1978-1981 and three Meat Puppets albums (each featuring bonus tracks), Mirage, Monsters, and Out My Way.

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