Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. Nine Black Alps, Everything Is
(Remember a few years ago when “new garage” was all the rage and bands like The Vines and Jet were ruling the charts? And then, everything got all dance/punk on us? Well, U.K. wonders Nine Black Alps are coming up from the rear to trigger a powerhouse album of raggedy/catchy rawk.)

2. Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan, Ballad of the Broken Seas
(The Scottish siren mingles with the Screaming Trees vocalist for dark and dusty duets. Aching melodies, drinking music, and a fantastic sense of a great tune.)

3. Arctic Monkeys, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I Am Not
(They’re the biggest buzz band in the U.K. right now, and you can see why. Pub-crawler punk rock with a bird-flipping, chain-smoking attitude the whole way. English countryside ballads blend with chaotic dance anthems. Plus, lyrics that are some of the most fun to come from the new U.K. movement.)

4. William Orbit, Hello Waveforms
(Back from hiatus, an electronica pioneer proves the symphonic beauty in digital sound. Ambient chords, blips, beats, and occasional guest vocals… music for when dawn breaks.)

5. Band of Horses, Everything All the Time
(For anyone who wished My Morning Jacket’s latest sounded more country-fried, this is the new band to get behind. Epic rock with an Americana twinge from a band to watch.)
