Damien Leith’s next cover album and Jack White’s solo debut lead a curious week in new releases.

If the success of his Roy Orbison cover album is anything to go by, it’ll be a big week for Damien Leith’s Travelling Wilburys cover album (with a couple of originals) Now & Then.

Jack White’s hotly-anticipated debut solo album Blunderbuss hit shelves, as did Hank Williams III’s Long Gone Daddy, which boosts the blues rock contingent this week.

Speaking of musical progeny, Rufus Wainwright offers his “most pop album” Out Of The Game.

Also, local outfit Children Collide deliver their kraut-rocky new album Monument and Brit-rockers Young Guns have their debut Bones.

There’s a compilation of live music from Jack Johnson’s Kokua festival, starring ‘friends’ like Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Eddie Vedder, Ben Harper, Dave Matthews and more.

Sweet Brooklyn indie pop act Oberhofer release Time Capsules II and English singer Birdy released an ironically self-titled debut album of hipster covers – Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, The xx, Phoenix, and more.

Mormon new-wave rock outfit Neon Trees finally release their second album Picture Show.

Canadian Patrick Watson has new album Adventures In Your Own Backyard.

There’s the soundtrack for new romance The Lucky One and a slew of Essential compilations as well as  a compilation of housework songs out – 101 More Housework Songs. That’s a genre now. And you have a lot of scrubbing to do.
