New Music June 23, 2009: Regina Spektor, The Mars Volta

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. In addition to my picks below, you can also download Michael Johns's new album and the Transformers 2 soundtrack.

Magical music: Hooray! The new Regina Spektor album is finally out, and I've already downloaded the whole thing. It's every bit as cute and quirky as her previous albums, but with a little bit of darkness in the lyrics, as we first heard on "Laughing With." Check out the wonderful tracks "Eet," "Blue Lips," and "The Calculation" to get started.

Mellowed out: I'm a fan of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala, aka The Mars Volta, and was excited to see a new album of theirs out today. The fifth Mars Volta album seems mellower than a lot of these guys' previous work, but that doesn't mean the intensity is gone. One reviewer articulated this idea well, saying that the album "employs stillness as a setup for all manner of disruption." Check out the psychedelic "With Twilight as My Guide" for a taste of this album's sound.
