This Week's Interesting Music Releases - January 3rd, 2012

Three singles are the new music highlights this week, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' If I Had a Gun, Bat for Lashes' A Forest (For Invisible Children), and Bright Eyes' We Are Gonna Be Friends (which features First Aid Kit).

The only new album I am considering is The Unthanks' Songs of Robert Wyatt and Antony & The Johnsons, but I can wait for its U.S. release on February 7th.

Skam reissues the 1991 debut by Lego Feet (aka Autechre) in a remastered edition with two bonus tracks. Thanks to culture blog The Contextual Life for the heads up.

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