New Music: Grizzly Bear, Mandy Moore

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.

Something sweet: Mandy Moore's new album is titled Amanda Leigh, which is also Moore's given name. It's a title that seems to signal that perhaps these new songs are, compared to the rest of her repertoire, the most representative of who she is. Her voice remains sugar-sweet and easy on the ears, but it lacks some emotional depth, which hurts the album as a whole. But there are some strong, stand-out tracks, including "Merrimack River," "Everblue," and "Bug."

Brooklyn's calling: I'm pretty pumped for the new album from Brooklyn-based Grizzly Bear. Veckatimest is getting pretty stellar reviews, and from what I've listened to so far, it's the perfect laid-back indie-rock album for sunny Summer days and road trips (although, for what it's worth, this video literally gave me nightmares). Check out "Two Weeks," "While You Wait for the Others," and "Cheerleader."

I've listened to the new Mandy album about once all the way through and, I have to say, it's better than I thought it would be based on the clips she had up on her website. It was actually Amazon's deal of the day on Monday (a day before the release!) - $3.99 for mp3s of all 11 songs. I had planned on buying a physical copy, but I just couldn't pass that up.

Don't forget about the new Phoenix album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. It's really good.

:) Hahaha... It's funny how you had to spell out to me that that's Mandy Moore's real name. I kept wondering why would she name her album..what seemed to me as a random title...Very shameful since I love Mandy and want this album..
