This Week's Interesting Music Releases (October 21st, 2008)

Of Montreal's Skeletal Lamping is out tomorrow in a dizzying array of formats (including t-shirts and totebags).

What the week lacks in star power it makes up in quality releases. From what has already crossed my path, I can strongly recommend +/-'s Xs on Your Eyes, The Dears' Missiles, Herman Düne's Next Year in Zion, Parts & Labor's Receivers, Pit Er Pat's High Time , Sebastian Grainger's Sebastien Grainger and the Mountains, The Whispertown 2000's Swim, and especially White Hinterland's Luniculaire EP.

Cellist Erik Friedlander may have the most interesting album of the week. Indie rock fans might know Friedlander from his work on the past several Mountain Goats albums Broken Arm, features Friedlander's innovative bow-less playing (in the style of Oscar Pettiford).

A couple of Swervedriver remastered discs are out this week, the imports Ejector Seat Reservation and Raise. The vinyl reissue of PJ Harvey's To Bring You My Love is high on my shopping list.

Two classic rock box sets that might make great holiday presents are the 12-disc The Doors: Perception and the 13-disc Genesis: 1970-1975

Any recommendations from the week's music release list?
