This Week's Interesting Music Releases - June 19, 2012

Fiona Apple's new album The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do has one of the longest titles ever, and is easily the week's most anticipated release.

Peaking Lights' Lucifer is another album I can heartily recommend.

I am most looking forward to two rarity collections this week, Silver Jews' Early Times and Can's Lost Tapes, a 3-CD box set that collects unreleased studio, soundtrack and live material from the German band.

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