This sweet release Tuesday puts the jam in jam-packed. There’s new hotness from She & Him, Bright Eyes, Monica, Justin Bieber, Bonobo, Goldfrapp, Archie Bronson Outfit, and Andrew W.K. Can I get a “Woo-hoo!!”? Let’s get get into the groove, after the jump …
She & Him, Volume Two
M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel make more songs that make me feel like a teenager again—well, an imaginary teenager in the ‘50s.
Goldfrapp, Head First
After an introspective record, it’s good to see the disco diva get her booty back on the dance floor.
Monica, Still Standing
R&B that’s trying to motivate you to do more than groove.
Justin Beiber, My World 2.0
Pop bop you can pretend you’re just playing for, uh, all those kids you know.
Bonobo, Black Sands
Jazzy, funky soul by a British boy that sounds kinda like it could be the music playing during a James Bond sex scene.
Andrew W.K., Close Calls With Brick Walls/Mother Of Mankind
Crazy, rad rock anthems finally, officially released to the world.
Bright Eyes & Neva Dinova, One Jug of Wine Two Vessels
Imperative poetry set to easy-going jams.
Archie Bronson Outfit, Coconut
Dark psychedelic dance rock, just how I like it.
