This Week's Interesting Music Releases - February 5, 2016

Elliott Smith

The soundtrack to the Elliott Smith documentary Heaven Adores You is in stores this week, and features several rarities from the singer-songwriter.

Dr. Dog's The Psychedelic Swamp, Freakwater's Scheherazade, Lucinda Williams' The Ghosts Of Highway 20, and The Prettiots' Funs Cool are all albums I can recommend.

Reissues include a vinyl edition of Grimes' Geidi Primes album.
