Alex Turner - Submarine (soundtrack)
The frontman of the Arctic Monkeys and The Last Shadow Puppets is making his first foray as a solo artist with the soundtrack for the British film Submarine. The effort is more subdued than his work with either of his bands, but the result is beautiful. His voice is well-suited to this style. I hope that he continues to work solo in the future (though release with his two bands as well!)

New York Dolls - Dancing Backward in High Heels
Some of the originators of punk rock are back, though they haven't been gone long; they released their last album only two years ago. I've only ever listened to their debut self-titled album, so I don't have a sense of how well (or not well) this band has aged. The title, however, is fitting, as I'm sure it's something they've done a lot of and it shows an obvious tie to one thing they became very known for.
