This Week's Interesting Music Releases - July 24, 2012

The solo album by Stereolab singer Laetitia Sadier, Silencio, is my personal favorite this week, but many others stand out.

The Antlers' Undersea EP, Eternal Summers' Correct Behavior, Fang Island's Major, Micachu & The Shapes' Never, Passion Pit's Gossamer, and Three Mile Pilot's Maps also earn my hearty recommendation.

Remastered editions of Sugar's Copper Blue / Beaster and File Under: Easy Listening both come packaged with a CD of bonus material.

The Books' A Dot in Time is a 7-LP and single DVD box set that collects the band's discography.

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