Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. The Cinematic Orchestra, Ma Fleur
(J. Swinscoe finds that nexus where downbeat/chill-out meets classic jazz. Ambient and spacey, yet very down to Earth, a cooler and calmer record would be hard to find right now.)

2. Voxtrot, Voxtrot
(Austin indie-rockers offer up a tasty first album, with piano-driven and jangly pop.)

3. Tracey Thorn, Out of the Woods
(Everything But the Girl singer makes a dynamic solo album, which compliments her distinct vocal styles. Not quite a dance album, but definitely a stirring soul collection that would give Dido a run for her money.)

4. T.I., T.I. vs. T.I.P.
(Not as terrific as last year’s King, but a good as gold delivery of Dirty South club songs and very special guest turns.)

5. Frederico Aubele, Panamericana
(The South American electro-pop master continues to blend worldbeat textures over a Latin and European sense of lounge. Great summer stuff.)
