This Week's Interesting Music Releases - January 17th, 2012

Kathleen Edwards' Voyageur has grown on me with every spin, and features contributions by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon (who also co-produced the album).

Cate Le Bon's CYRK, Frankie Rose's Know Me, Herman Dune's Tell Me Something I Don't Know EP, and Matthew Dear's Headcage EP.

Guided By Voices' Let's Go Eat the Factory, an album of new material from the band's classic lineup, is also in stores this week.

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