Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. Everything’s Gone Green soundtrack
(Primarily Canadian indie-rock suitably sets the tone for this entertaining Canadian indie film, which had its U.S. Premiere at SXSW 2007. Regardless, tracks from Jason Collett, Sloan, Caribou and more, create a moody and trippy soundscape that will be hard to take out of rotation.)

2. Rich Boy, Rich Boy
(Dirty South hip-hop, with a splash of East Coast ruff ‘n’ tumble on this dynamic and better-than-expected debut LP from a talented young MC.)

3. LCD Soundsystem, Sound of Silver
(James Murphy tops his last outing with this dangerous sonic assault of homegrown dancebeats, lush pop arrangements, and the occasional party anthem.)

4. Menomena, Friend and Foe
(Jangly, disjointed indie pop from a bunch of Portland hipster kids. Surprisingly, it’s a rather textured and mature set of epic songs. Comparisons to Spoon and Mercury Rev are aptly right-on and a far-off.)

5. K-Os, Atlantis: Hymns for Disco
(Canadian hip-hop heavyweight continues to relish the expansive sound of folk and soul for his latest. He’s either the Wyclef Jean of the Great White North, or the Sly Stone of the college-radio set.)

NEW SONGS TO DOWNLOAD NOW:
– “Survivalism” by Nine Inch Nails
(Just when you kinda thought Trent Reznor was running out of new melodies, he delivers this catchy new single, the first from his upcoming new album.)

– “Pressure Suit” by Aqualung
(His live show may be Coldplay on Xanax, but Matt Haley’s new single is a burning, yearning, and strong Brit-rock confection.)

– “Flathead” by The Fratellis
(Maybe it’s just the latest iTunes-endorsed slice of guitar-rock cacophony? No matter, this single from the Scottish buzz band is hard to deny.)
