This Week's Interesting Music Releases - August 28th, 2012

Roxy Music's The Complete Studio Recordings 1972 - 1982 is a 10-CD box set that includes the band's eight studio albums released in that eleven year period plus two discs of unreleased material.

The wave of Frank Zappa reissues continues with twelve more albums, includingh his collaborative effort with Captain Beefheart, Bongo Fury.

Among the week's new releases, I can certainly recommend indie supergroup Divine Fits' A Thing Called the Divine Fits, Juliana Hatfield's self-titled covers album, and Poor Moon's self-titled debut.

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