Among the handful of releases the week of Christmas, most notable are a couple of reissues and rarities collections.
Wondermints' Kaleidoscopin': Exploring Prisms of the Past and Public Image Ltd's Plastic Box are both rarities compilations worth checking out, and if you don't already have PiL's Metal Box, I strongly recommend it.
What new music can you recommend this week? What's on your shopping list? What music are you giving as gifts this year?
