Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Vampire Weekend To OK GO

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! And girl, this week is jam-packed with hotness. Last week was all gals, and this week, it’s all man, honey! First of all, the sophomore record from Vampire Weekend is out. Finally! You know, those prepster cuties would never disappoint a lady. Although, I must say, there’s a new panty-dropping record on the shelf, and it’s by OK GO. They’ve ditched the gimmicky-yet-lovable treadmill dance, but with this sexy rock record, they’ll still get in your pants. Omarion is also getting personal this week, showing his sensitive side on his new record. And producer-turned-solo-artist Blockhead dishes out some tracks that’ll keep you hangin’ on. It’s one dude-tastic week! So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump …

Vampire Weekend, Contra
The four-piece’s second record is like Paul Simon’s “Graceland” but recorded by Williamsburg hipsters. And yet as weird a combo as that sounds, there’s much catchy pop to love.

OK GO, Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky
Tracks like “WTF?” and “I Want You So Bad, I Can’t Breathe” are the kinda electro-rock grooves that make everything sexy. Even without treadmills, has got us sweatin’ them.

Omarion, Ollusion
The R&B star gets explicit on his third record. Yum.

Blockhead, Music Scene
Aesop Rock’s go-to producer busts it loose all by himself. His third record of ambient hip-hop is the perfect soundtrack for work.
