What to Download: New Music on iTunes

Tuesdays are big in entertainmentville: 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's what's on my list this week:

When the album cover looks as good as the band sounds: Rolling Stone called Of Montreal's new album Skeletal Lamping, "A soulful romp through psychedelic melodies and sprawling noise-scapes" which sounds very cool to me. Already I can tell that this is a big album (15 songs) with long tracks full of intricate details, and it probably deserves a good listen-through on a Sunday afternoon. That's my plan, but if you're looking for a taste before you buy the whole thing, check out the luscious "Touched Something's Hollow," and the extremely fun "Beware Our Nubile Miscreants."

Moody tunes: Ever since releasing a full album back in February, The Raveonettes keep on trucking along and have been releasing a series of four EPs. Today the third installment, Beauty Dies, caught my attention. There are four tracks including "Black/White" (recorded for GAP's "Sound of Color" project) and a song that I'm really enjoying called "The Thief."

One more after the jump, so


Hope songs: Aw, we could all use a little uplifting music these days, couldn't we? Young folk artist Brett Dennen has released a pretty album full of the kind of songs that Dave Matthews and/or Jack Johnson fans might enjoy: Hope for the Hopeless. For obvious reasons I'm excited about his song "San Francisco," and both "Make You Crazy" and "Ain't Gonna Lose You" are plenty heartwarming and worth checking out.
