This Week's Interesting Music Releases - January 15, 2013

Christopher Owens

Girls frontman Christopher Owens' solo debut Lysandre is by far the week's new release that has spent the most time in my headphones.

Other new albums I can recommend this week include Erin McKeown's Manifestra, Free Energy's Love Sign, Parquet Courts' Light Up Gold, and Yo La Tengo's Fade.

Four Captain Beefheart albums are reissued on vinyl this week: Clear Spot, Lick My Decals Off Baby, Shiny Beast - Bat Chain Puller, and Spotlight Kid.

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