Five New Albums Worth Your Dime…

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime...

1. Ghostface, Pretty Toney Album (For anyone who misses the Wu-Tang Clan, this is a very strong hip-hop album from one of the crew’s most unpredictable MCs.)

2. Louque, So Long (Pronounced “luke,” this folk/soul, singer/songwriter offers up the kind of infectious melody Dave Matthews would do if he channeled Sam Cooke instead of Jerry Garcia.)

3. Oceansize, Effloresce (Caution: loud and hard and heavy and unapologetic. This Euro-rock band makes epic soundscapes that are like Jawbox mixed with jaw-dropping goth.)

4. Jadakiss, Kiss of Death (Delightfully overproduced and full of too many guest stars, this MC’s new LP is the best new Top 40 rap album in stores.)

5. Matt Pond PA, Emblems (The latest from these indie-rockers is the perfect rainy day album as we wait for new work from The Shins or Nada Surf.)
