This Week's Interesting Music Releases - January 21, 2014


Warpaint's self-titled album is by far my favorite new music of the week.

Against Me!'s Transgender Dysphoria Blues, Bill Callahan's Have Fun With God, Damien Jurado's Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son, Mogwai's Rave Tapes, and Sweet Soubrette's Burning City are other new releases I have heard and can strongly recommend.

Reissues include The Beatles' The U.S. Albums, a 13-CD box set, and Nick Drake's Tuck Box, a 5-CD box set.

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