Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

Five New Albums Worth Your Dime

1. A Sunny Day In Glasgow, Autumn, Again
(Spacey/dreamy band from Pennsylvania, not Scotland, make their latest set of shoegazer pop available as a free digital download. Autumn, again… and this is a soundtrack for the falling leaves.)

2. Chiddy Bang, The Preview
(Coincidentally also from Philly, this rap duo is another post-modern example of hip-hop having fun with pop. Unlike some other ill-fated examples, though, these guys bring a joyful set of creative output.)

3. My Jerusalem, Gone Fore Good
(Featuring members from The Twilight Singers and The Polyphonic Spree, you can probably do the math. Orchestral indie-rock with a leaning towards earnest devotion but also pub-quality wails; and it’s good.)

4. Miami Horror, Illumination
(This Australian producer/DJ is someone to watch: building dance-heavy beats around gorgeous vocals and some exotic flavors.)

5. Bryan Ferry, Olympia
(The 1980s icon is back with a reinvention of sorts, with guest turns by David Gilmour, Brian Eno, Scissor Sisters, and Flea. The sound isn’t very contemporary, but Ferry still knows how to capture that New Romantics glory with a good voice and an appreciate of a melody.)
