This Week's Interesting Music Releases - February 7th, 2012

Sharon Van Etten's Tramp has spent more time in my headphones than any other 2012 release so far, and at this point is by far my favorite release of the young year.

Air's soundtrack to the 1902 silent film Le Voyage Dans La Lune, A Place To Bury Strangers' Onwards to the Wall EP, Bahamas' Barchords, The Twilight Sad's No One Can Ever Know, and The Unthanks' The Songs of Robert Wyatt and Antony & the Johnsons: Live at the Union Chapel (Diversions Vol. 1).

The reissue highlights are five Queen albums (Innuendo, A Kind of Magic, em>Made in Heaven, The Miracle, and The Works ) all with additional 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?
