What to Download: New Music on iTunes

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

All the indie buzz: The first album from the much-hyped band (Spin called them "the most buzzed-about new band since Vampire Weekend") Black Kids is probably a must-have for anyone trying to keep their iTunes loaded with the latest and greatest. I really like the tracks "Listen to Your Body Tonight" and "I'm Making Eyes At You."

Industrial rock returns: Trent Reznor and his merry gang of rockers are back with an eighth album from Nine Inch Nails, The Slip. Of course you can download it for free at NIN's site (which is what I did) or you can buy it today on iTunes. I know, I don't get it either. Regardless, the album is a lot of the same (for some that's a good thing, for others it might be tedious), while still not being quite as good as their old stuff. Still, there are some stand-out singles like "Discipline" and I like sorting out all the cool beats in "Demon Seed."

Up next: A band that couldn't be more opposite than NIN, so


Country sugar: Sugarland's third album includes many songs the band says fans have been hearing on tour for a while now. The song "All I Want to Do" is an upbeat pop single but there's no mistaking that twang in the vocals, and I found "Already Gone" to be pretty and moving.

I'll be honest, I'm not really into the Black Kids' album. :( I LOVE their 'not gonna teach' song, but the album sounds a bit too Cure-y to me.

black kids remind me of what happens the first time you discover the cure & echo and the bunny men, and they inspire you to form a band that ends up sounding just like the cure & echo and the bunnymen but its eaten up now because the cure and echo were soo long ago no one remembers that its been done before and better...

I adore Black Kids. "The Whizard of Ahhhs" has been with me this year and Hit The Heartbreaks is in my all-time Top 20 favorite songs. It's simply brilliant. I'm glad to see they have a lot of buzz. They deserve it.
