Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. Albert Hammond Jr., Como Te Llama
(The Strokes’ secret weapon unveils his second solo record. He keeps getting more assured as his day band gets less vital. This next round of indie pop adds textures that will impress.)

2. Beck, Modern Guilt
(The collage-rock troubadour used to work in cycles, alternating between rap records and folk records. His last few attempts to streamline have been mixed at best. Here, he works with Danger Mouse and manages to produce his most consistent output in years. Spacey folk with deep melodies.)

3. Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis, Two Men With the Blues
(A country legend and a jazz great, meet up for an inspired live recording. They trade exchanges, musicanship, and get to the bottom of what binds them: the origins of blues and rock.)

4. Abe Vigoda, Skeleton
(L.A. noise-rockers fall in line with fellow Left Coasters in No Age, for a tidal wave of feedback and guitar pop.)

5. James Pants, Welcome
(Washington-based one-man dance party unlocks the key ingredients for cosmic bounce. Smooth, soulful, and sexy… what every suburbanite hipster wishes they could be.)
