Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Andrew Bird To Taylor Swift

Hey lady, I got some new tunes for you. It’s new release Tuesday and hitting the shelves for the very first time is Taylor Swift’s new one. No wonder her love life is suddenly all over the blogosphere. We’ve also got new jams from bluesman Buddy Guy, Warpaint, Ghostland Observatory, Elizabeth & The Catapult, and Andrew Bird. It’s a chill way to start your week, so get those headphones on if you want to max out.

Taylor Swift, Speak Now
More lovably plucky country pop.

Buddy Guy, Living Proof
The blues legend is 74 and still doing his thang. Respect.

Warpaint, The Fool
Girlie psychedelia.

Ghostland Observatory, Codename: Rondo
Fuzzy rock fun that’ll give you a case of the shakes and snaps.

Elizabeth & The Catapult, The Other Side Of Zero
Folksie lady easy listening.

Andrew Bird, Useless Creatures
Elegant orchestrations that’ll make you wanna get our of your chair and roll around in a pile of leaves. Or is that just me?
