This Week's Interesting Music Releases - January 31st, 2012

Legendary poet and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen releases a new album this week, Old Ideas.

The Big Sleep's Nature Experiments, Gotye's Making Mirrors, and The Pines: Dark So Gold are all albums I have heard and can strongly recommend.

One Model Nation's Total Werks Vol. 1 (1969-1977) is the companion music to Dandy Warhols frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor's new graphic novel, One Model Nation.

Tally Ho! Flying Nun's Greatest Bits is a 2-CD, 40-track compilation from the New Zealand label with contributions by The Clean, The Verlaines, Tall Dwarfs, and many others.

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