DOWNLOAD: Sally Shapiro - He Keeps Me Alive (MP3)

editor's note: My favorite release this week is Sally Shapiro. Also, I guess it comes out this week in the U.S. - not two weeks ago (that was Canada). Largehearted Boy....

Im Not There SoundtrackOf all the week's releases I have heard so far, the soundtrack to the Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There has held the most appeal. Featuring indie artists from Sonic Youth to Yo La Tengo to Jeff Tweedy, this could be my favorite compilation of the year.

The soundtrack to the Joy Division biopic Control is also out tomorrow, along with US releases of three of the band's remastered albums with bonus material, Closer, Still, and Unknown Pleasures.

Other notable reissues include two Tegan and Sara discs, If It Was You and So Jealous.

Of the remaining discs, I can strongly recommend Nicole Atkins' debut album, Neptune City and Who Goes There by Ian Ball (of Gomez).

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

The I'm Not There soundtrack is pretty amazing. Not all of the songs are winners, but wow, the ones that hit the mark are great!

The Ian Ball CD is fantastic, for fans of Gomez or oblique pop.

The Antlers put out another free EP (a short one, like 3 songs) and one of 'em's a Beach House cover that sounds pretty rad. here's the link:

Indeed, it should be an exciting show. However, the intial promotion for this show indicated that Cat Power (who is on the OST and whose name is still on the Ticketmaster page) would be appearing; now her name is no longer on the advert.

Let's hope the unnamed "guests" are in fact, special.

Hello, do people get know referring to this good post? At freelance writing service is not really hard to have good information!

Maybe not everyone knows that the under-thread component in multi-needle lockstitch quilting and in "schiffli" embroidery is called cocoon bobbin.
