Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Sweet Apple To The Apples In Stereo

It’s new music Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest jams for a spin. As you can see, this is the week of the apple.

Speaking of the fruit of temptation, Rufus Wainwright embraces his dark, vixen side. Then, from Europe, we’ve got retro gals Kate Nash and V.V. Brown bringing back the 20th century, with a twist. The much hyped Kissaway Trail takes us to Sleep Mountain. And last but not least, there’s another Aqualung. But the dude is so shy, there is no video of his sweet new track, “Fingertips.” So Google that magic on your own. Now, get those heaphones on, girl, cause after the jump, we’re gonna get down!
