Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. Bobb Trimble, Iron Curtain Innocence
(Reissue of a super-obscure 1980 British psychedelic record that is so good and so lush, it stands up tall today.)

2. Sigur Ros, Hvarf-Heim
(The Icelandic mood rockers dip into their history with this sonically brilliant collection of classic songs remade both acoustic and electric.)

3. Ghostface Killah, Big Doe Rehab
(How does he do it? The Wu-Tang MC shocks us with his third great record in two years. It’s a mystery, but he does it. And he does it well.)

4. Enter Shikari, Take to the Skies
(Tony Wilson’s favorite new UK band before he died, these disco-punks turn up the screech and screams. But they remember the melodies, lots and lots of melodies.)

5. Duran Duran, Red Carpet Massacre
(The New Romantics are back with another comeback album, this time helmed by Timbaland and Justin Timberlake. Surprisingly, they meld rather well, and it’s the band’s best record in a decade.)
