Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Lil Wayne To Nick Jonas

It’s new release Tuesday, folks, and that can mean only one thing: It’s time to take the fresh tunes for a spin. I know we were all counting on a groundhog today (six more weeks of winter, wah!), but this week has another beacon of hope, nay, ridonkulous awesomeness. Last year, I was addicted to Animal Collective’s mind-blowingly special gem, Merriweather Post Pavillion. And about a year later, another album in the same sonically distorted vein has come to be—Toro y Moi’s Causers Of This. Does this mean there’s a new psychedelic electro-noise experiment genre?! Dang, music is so exciting sometimes. After that act, it was hard for Lil Wayne, Soft Pack, and Nick Jonas to follow, but alas, they’re all brand shiny new this week and they deserve a chance to dance, romance, and entrance. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »

This week is like the deli sandwich of new release Tuesdays, ’cause it’s jam-packed with meaty, juicy morsels of music! We got a new smokin’ Hot Chip record startin’ the dance party. The Magnetic Fields are here to polarize your heart. Charlotte Gainsbourg and Beck made some beautiful music together, and we hope that’s a double entendre — that would be a rad kid. Beach House made the perfect nap-time music for adults. And Los Campesinos think romance can bite it. So, get ready to turn up the volume on those headphones ’cause, after the jump, we’re gonna take the latest tunes for a spin. Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Spoon To Aziz Ansari

This week, some serious awesomeness has been unleashed upon the pop culture-verse. That’s right, it’s not just music this week—although, Spoon’s transferring some new sound waves, Eels are staying focused on doom, RJD2 is Phili-styling R&B, and Surfer Blood is dropping a debut that could very well be THE album of 2010. But girl, this week, there’s one more sweet release: Aziz Ansari drops his first stand-up record, and it’s almost as hot as he is. Get ready to turn up the volume on those headphones.

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.

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Mary J. Blige To Young Money

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! As I’ve been writing this, my own jams have been competing with my neighbor’s — he just got a karaoke machine for the holidays. Must admit, the dude can really do justice to the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Under The Bridge.” But, the question remains, will you be blaring Mary J. Blige, Young Money, or Hurricane Chris new releases 15 years down the road in your living room? So, let’s get into the groove after the jump … Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Alicia Keys To Robin Thicke

All I want for Hannukah is sweet new tunes! And although there are only three albums out this week, they are so good they’ll be in our CD player forevah, or until we get that MP3 jammy we’ve been asking for. But I digress, on with the hotness! We’ve got Alicia Keys playing footloose and fancy-free. Robin Thicke’s showing up Dr. Drew with his “Sex Therapy.” And Animal Collective, the experimental indie group, who made arguably the best album of the year, Merriweather Post Pavillion, won’t let 2009 get away until it’s played out with their awesomeness. Happy holidays, indeed! So, let’s get in to the groove after the jump.

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases From Snoop Dogg To 30 Seconds To Mars

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin. And the freshest track is coming from my fave awesome art rock band: The Liars. They’re releasing Sisterworld in March, but you hip, hot Frisky gals can get an mp3 taste of it by heading here! I’ve been basically playing their super awesome song “Scissors” on loop. Now, as for the albums out this week, Snoop Dogg is still the shizneezy. Rapper Gucci Mane fights the law, and wins. Timbaland’s back, trying to make shock waves. 30 Seconds To Mars is flying high on the wings of operatic emo. And We The Kings try to rule tweendom. Are we missing someone? You bet! We’re ignoring Chris Brown’s new record. In light of what he did to our girl Rihanna, we’re not going to support him here. Whew, let’s brush it off ’cause there are some seriously hot jams going on this week. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »

It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin. This week it’s all about the booty—but isn’t it always, ladies?

Kelly’s socking it to ya; Allison Iraheta gets Idol-worthy; Juvenile backs it up; and The Bravery break out their skinny jeans. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Rihanna To Adam Lambert

Today is not much of an indie day. Nope, today is a day for big, huge, mega-blockbuster releases from the likes of Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, Shakira, and Susan Boyle. Why? So that they’re in stores, sitting on the new releases shelf, on Black Friday when people storm the doors of Wal-Mart, hopefully not trampling people their way to big discounts. So if pop is your thing, congrats! And if it’s not your thing, come back next week. Keep reading »
