Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. Taken By Trees, East of Eden
(Victoria Bergsman, former lead singer for The Concretes, is dropping her latest solo exploration with hushed arrangements and an exotic-lullaby mindset)

2. Jay Reatard, Watch Me Fall
(The punk with the unfortunate fake name but the unmistakable gift for hooks, is back with a magnum opus of disheveld garage rock.)

3. Yim Yames, Tribute To EP
(My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James pays tribute to George Harrison, with this odd but ethereal EP of cover tunes. It’s bare bones, without the Phil Spector wall-of-sound in sight. James’ intoxicating voice is especially nice on “My Sweet Lord.”)

4. The xx, xx
(These Brits have a love for R&B, sure, but inject their soft-spoken pop with a darker/sharper edge.)

5. Mew, No More Stories Are Told Today I’m Sorry They Washed Away…
(The Danish prog-rockers are at it again, with an epic dash of polyrythmic power.)
