It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! This week Queen Latifah has returned to claim her throne; the Arctic Monkeys heat things up; Aim & Ignite have some fun with us; Imogen Heap sings us right round; Jet fires off another record; Matisyahu sees the light; and…
The saucy British show about teens is like sexy Degrassi meets My So Called Life. We’re fans from across the pond!
Ximena Sarinana Mediocre
The Mexican actress is from cinematic royalty, but with this album she truly makes a name for herself. Like a Latina Fiona Apple, her album of jazzy, seductive grinds translates even though it’s in Spanish.
“Johnny Depp: Triple Feature”
“Edward Scissorhands,” “From Hell,” and “Benny & Joon” equals three times the Johnny Depp for the price of one.
“Brad Pitt: Triple Feature”
“Mr & Mrs. Smith,” “Kalifornia,” and “Thelma & Louise” equals three times the Brad Pitt for the price of one.
Fall Out Boy Foilex A Duex
Help Pete Wentz pay for diapers. You can even buy the record off the band’s MySpace page for $3.99 and it’s worth it. Tracks like “She’s My Winona” and the single, “I Don’t Care,” are poptastically terrific.
Common Universal Mind Control
The Grammy Award-winning rapper has just released another rad set of rhymes. Produced by the legendary Neptunes and Kanye West, the disc also features cameos from Cee-lo. But even without all the big names to throw around, this record could be summed up in one word: HOT.
Guns N’ Roses Chinese Democracy
Axl Rose’s anthemic rock voice still makes my panties wetter than the November rain. Chinese Democracy, inflated by all the hype and a very, very long wait, surprisingly lives up to its promise — even with the all new band line-up. “Better” has some of the sickest guitar squeal…
Beyoncé I Am…Sasha Fierce
With this two disc release, Beyonce is all about fantasizing. She’s been slipping on her gling and calling herself Sasha Fierce. The first disc she’s still Beyonce, imagining what she’d do “If I Were A Boy.” Yet she’s got something to say to the gents, “If you like it, you…
Twilight The Movie Soundtrack
Iron & Wine, Muse, Paramore, and Linkin’ Park have all contributed tracks. But tucked in at the end is Rob Pattinson’s own little breathless ditty, “Never Think.” You’re right, hottie Robbie, we should just DO it!
Pink’s post-divorce record drops today, but we’ve already be bopping our head to her single “So What,” which can pretty much been found on the radio at all times on one station or another. Of all of Pink’s albums, this one feels the most personal, she’s exercising the demons from…
Electric Six Flashy
The Detroit rockers are rolling out bitchin’ tunes and teasing the ladies with tracks like their ode to “Formula 409” and “Transatlantic Flight,” in which they offer to let us use their bodies as a flotation device. Oh, we how want to go down on them!
Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson
I don’t want to hate on American Apparel, because I love it, but seriously, Oscar-winning Jennifer Hudson needs to fire her stylist. On the cover of her first solo record, she’s in a basic dress that hipsters have been humping in for years — boring! She’s too fabulous for that…
Kings of Leon Only By Night
The Southern boys head south, if you know what we mean, for their fourth record. Tracks like “Sex on Fire” and “Crawl” have the band of brothers that made it big as teens talking dirty. Seems like since their “California Waiting” days, their addictions have moved from booze…
Jessica Simpson Do You Know
Simpson’s new country record, Do You Know, begs the questions, do you care? The change in sound from pop to her Texas roots is supposed to be a fresh new image for this bottle blonde, but she still sounds ready made.
Solange Sol-AngeL and the Hadley St. Dreams
Beyonce’s baby sister, Solange has finally stepped out of her sister’s shadow and made a record of her own. A jazzy, poppy collection of laments, it just doesn’t have the bitch slap of her sister’s dance tracks. From the sounds of songs like “Tony”, Solange has bee…
Lykke Li Youth Novels
A Frisky favorite, we’ve been anxiously anticipating the release of Lykke Li’s first full length studio recording. And Youth Novels lives up to her ladylike hype! This Swedish singer’s sound is so cute and clap-able without pandering to pathetic pop trends. You’ll nod your head to her thoughtfully luscious vocal…
Jonas Brothers A Little Bit Longer
The Jonas Brothers have put out! Sadly, we mean just another record. Despite the suggestive title, the handsome teen trio won’t give it or the music biz up anytime soon and they’re pretty hip for being squares.
The Cure “The Perfect Boy (Mix 13)”
While Robert Smith ha…
Carla Bruni Comme Si de Rien N’Etait
Former model and current outspoken first lady of France Carla Bruni has released a record so sweet and simply sexy that you know she’s exactly the kind of classy slut she says she is. While you might not be able to pronounce the album title, you…
