Five New Albums Worth Your Dime…

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime...

1. Sonic Youth, Sonic Nurse (The noise-pop pioneers get accessible again for this catchy and flammable set.)

2. Keane, Hopes and Fears (Vocals like Radiohead and piano pop melodies like Coldplay make this British trio the next great hope from the U.K.)

3. Bebel Gilberto, Bebel Gilberto (Smooth and soft textures of Latin-infused pop. This is the kind of chill-out summer album for any part of the world.)

4. Now It’s Overhead, Fall Back Open (Featuring guest spots by Conor Oberst and Michael Stipe, this indie rock collective is what Depeche Mode would have sounded like had they grown up in Midwestern suburbs.)

5. Dizzee Rascal, Boy in Da Corner (This Mercury Prize winner’s full-length debut is just now making the rounds stateside. A cryptically futuristic and garage-oriented taste of grimy British hip-hop. “I Luv U” is instant-classic stuff.)
