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 Ciara's new album featuring musical talent including Justin Timberlake and Missy Elliot). Here are today's selections:

Ben Harper rocks: When I think of Ben Harper, I think back to lazy times in my college dorm room listening to his laid-back music. On his new album, he takes a different approach than I'm used to and rocks out on many of the tracks. So far I'm digging songs like the toe-tapping and passionate "Lay There & Hate Me" and the hard-driving rhythms of "Number With No Name."

Neo-soul sounds so good: I'm a huge fan of Jill Scott's music, and Chrisette Michele feels like her second coming. These vocals are to die for. I was into her 2007 debut, I Am, and I've already downloaded a few tracks off today's Ne-Yo-produced second album, including "Fragile," "Another One," and "Epiphany (I'm Leaving)." It's girl power with depth and emotion.

Another one up next, so

.

AKA Bright Eyes: Conor Oberst, best known for his work in the band Bright Eyes, has an album out today with his new project, Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band. Though there's a full band playing on the album, the songs I'm drawn to most are the stripped-down tracks with just Oberst and his guitar, like "White Shoes." "Spoiled" also stands out.

I'll have to check out that Ben Harper - I lost a bit track of him with his last albums, but I LOVE his first 5-6 albums! He was my first concert when I was 14 (still have a soft spot for The Will To Live), and my 2nd concert when I was 17! :P
