This week's music release list may lack star power, but still is incredibly deep in worthwhile discs. The US release of Japanese singer-songwriter Tujiko Noriko's Solo tops my list, along with singles by the Knife and M Ward. Other highly recommended discs include Asobi Seksu's Spaceland Presents: At the Echo October 6th, 2006, the Black Lips' Valientes Del Mundo Neuva, Elvis Perkins' Ash Wednesday, Explosions In The Sky's All Of A Sudden I Miss Everyone, Jesu's Conqueror, and Southern Culture on the Skids' Countrypolitan Favorites.
