This Week's Interesting Music Releases - October 29, 2013

Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire's Reflektor is easily the week's most anticipated new release.

Bardo Pond's Peace On Venus, Juana Molina's Wed 21, and Purling Hiss's Paisley Montage are all albums I can strongly recommend.

Dot Wiggin Band's Ready! Get! Go! features the former Shaggs member.

A diverse crop of new holiday albums is led by Nick Lowe's Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection for the Whole Family and Bad Religion's Christmas Songs, and Kelly Clarkson's Wrapped in Red.

The Ramones release a 6-CD box set, The Sire Years 1976-1981, which includes the albums Ramones, Leave Home, Rocket to Russia, Road to Ruin, End Of the Century, and Pleasant Dreams.

The 10th anniversary edition of Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism comes with digital downloads of several of the album's songs' original demos.
