Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From David Cross To Karen Elson

It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means, folks—new jams! This week, model Karen Elson turns crooner; STP puts out for the first time in almost a decade; David Cross is trying to get even bigger; Marina and the Diamonds carry their piano across the pond; Damien Jurado reps the Seattle sound; and First Aid Kit tries to bruise your heart. So get those head phones on and let’s get into the groove, after the jump!

Karen Elson, The Ghost Who Walks
Eerie, groovy, womanly country that twangs and moans.

Stone Temple Pilots, Stone Temple Pilots
After nearly a decade of silence, Scott Weiland rejoins the band and they rock out together again.

David Cross, Bigger And Blackerer
The star of “Mr. Show” (and more importantly, “Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel”) jokes about being bald, beer and silly religious crazies.

Marina And The Diamonds, The Family Jewels
Pop pianist from the U.K. Oh, and she rocks awesome costumes on stage. Love her.

Damien Jurado, Saint Bartlett
Introspective jams from a shaky voice and a trailing guitar.

First Aid Kit, Big Black & The Blue
Sister folk duo that sing and do everything together.
