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:

When geeks are right: I chose that intro phrase because that's what one of the coolest songs from The Faint's new album, Fasciinatiion, is all about. If you've never listened to this new-wave band before, this album might be a strange introduction (I'd recommend checking out their earlier album Blank-Wave Arcade instead). That said, I'm really fascinated (get it?!) by this new album and have already added the first track, "Get Seduced," to my iPod.

The music of the pants: If you're like me, you might want to add the soundtrack of the new Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie to the soundtrack of your life. I've seen the movie and enjoyed it (more on that later) and am having a good time reliving some of the scenes via these tracks, which include a pretty Aqualung song, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper, a fun head-banger from the Noisettes and a totally romantic ballad from Mutemath.

One more new release to check out so

.

A new contemporary songstress: Amazon tells me that people who love new artist Mandi Perkins also love Jewel and Alanis Morrisette. I might add Natalie Merchant and Tracy Chapman to that list. Perkins has a considerable following on MySpace and has been featured on MTV shows like — you guessed it! — The Hills. That makes sense, because her heavy, emotional lyrics and sweeping melodies on songs like "Why Pretend" would be helpful filler for when LC and Audrina can't seem to find the right words and instead just make eyes at one another.

Also check out The Airborne Toxic Event. They sound like the Hold Steady meets Pulp meets Joy Division. I love the Wishing Well track the most.
