Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Arctic Monkeys To Queen Latifah
It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! This week Queen Latifah has returned to claim her throne; the Arctic Monkeys heat things up; Aim & Ignite have some fun with us; Imogen Heap sings us right round; Jet fires off another record; Matisyahu sees the light; and DJ David Guetta gets by with a little help from his friends. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump!
Arctic Monkeys, Humbug
The Monkeys’ third record rocks harder than the chill indie dudes usually do, thanks to rough-riding producer Josh Homme from Queens of The Stone Age. Bonus.
Aim & Ignite, Fun
This cute, quirky band from Brooklyn will woo you with their playfulness.
Imogen Heap, Ellipse
The British songbird flutters her way through another delicately electronic solo record.
Queen Latifah, Persona
The Queen wants to reign the airwaves again with the help of autotune, Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliot, and a few alter egos.
Jet, Shaka Rock
This album boasts the band’s first singles that aren’t hopelessly trying to be a paler shade of Iggy Pop. But something about these wannabes is still a little too light. Speaking of light…
The orthodox Jewish reggae rapper keeps waxing poetic and spiritual!
David Guetta, One Love
DJ David Guetta’s beats gets backed up by some of the biggest names in the biz—Akon, Kid Cui, Kelly Rowland, Will.i.am., and Estelle—on dance-worthy electronica ditties.
