This Week's Interesting Music Releases - January 20, 2015


2015's first big music release week includes a trio of anticipated albums from indie rock veterans, Sleater-Kinney (No Cities To Love), The Decemberists (What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World), and Belle & Sebastian (Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance).

I can also recommend Viet Cong's self-titled album.

Archival releases include a vinyl edition of the Pixies' Doolittle 25: B-Sides, Peel Sessions & Demos box set and a reissue of Sonic Youth's eponymous album.

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