What to Download: New Music Today

Tuesdays are big in entertainmentville: not only do all the new DVD releases hit Netflix, but new music also pours into stores. So I take a spin through each week's music releases and pick out some albums and tracks worthy of a download. Here are today's selections:

Dylan's got the blues: Bob Dylan's back with a new album, and I'm ready to dig in. The LA Times writes that the album was inspired by "midcentury Chess and Sun label recordings" with the influence of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf apparent in the tracks. I'm enjoying "Beyond Here Lies Nothin" and "It's All Good."

Let the choir sing: I love the idea of university choirs singing Ben Folds songs. The effect, from what I've heard so far on this new album, totally reminds me of what makes the upcoming Fox show Glee so fun: my favorite pop melodies sung with lots of earnest harmonies. Love it! Maybe a whole album of this could be a bit much, but I'm definitely downloading "Brick." And OMG, "The Luckiest" is so beautiful this way!

One more up next, so

.

Cool and jazzy: Melody Gardot is a 23-year-old Philadelphia singer-songwriter with one heck of a beautiful voice. Her new album features the orchestration of Vince Mendoza and contains original songs plus a cover of "Over the Rainbow." One reviewer had nothing but nice things to say about this album and praised the singer's "intimate lovestruck and lovelorn lyrics and smoldering, bluesy pipes." Check out the lovely "My One and Only Thrill" and "Who Will Comfort Me" for a taste of what this artist has to offer.
