This Week's Music (June 16, 2009)

Welcome back to the weekly new music roundup, where I will try highlighting some of tomorrow's interesting/major music releases.

It's greatest hits season — The Wallflowers, Incubus, Don Henley and others will release compilations featuring their best stuff this week. (There is also a new Blur compilation out in the UK today, but apparently we can't expect to see that available here in the States until July. And even then, it's might be an import...)

Meanwhile, lots and lots of vinyl reissues are coming out too. The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Roxy Music, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Specials are among those getting the vinyl treatment this week. (Is it just me or are vinyl reissues really huge lately?)

The Pixies' Minotaur Box Set will also be out for those interested.

There are some newer releases here and there. Check out some snippets (the first is of The Mary Onettes' "Dare" and the next is of Sarah Jarosz's "Song Up In Her Head" from the album of the same name), and then you can take a look at some of this week's releases below.
