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. Today's a pretty slow start to '09, but I still found a couple of goodies:

The boys from Scotland: I'm really glad to discover this debut album by the Scottish rock band Glasvegas, which has been around in the UK for a while and is finally out in the US today. Since they're new to me, I liked the iTunes description of the music: similar to The Raveonettes in terms of blending 1950s oldies with mid-'80s shoegazing. In other words, some of these songs sound like creepier, crazier versions of bopping oldies. The track "Daddy's Gone" is pretty amazing, and I'm adding the dark and moody "Flowers and Football Tops" to my iPod as well.

One more up next, so


Another pretty voice: Just in time for the new year comes another singer-songwriter who could be 2009's Sara Bareilles. From what I've heard so far, Erin McCarley's new album is filled with intimate lyrics over lovely melodies that are easy on the ears. You might recognize her voice from the Hotel Cafe Tour last year or possibly One Tree Hill or Grey's Anatomy, which have featured her songs. Check out the pretty track "Pony (It's OK)" for download.

Oh boy, I'm Glasvegas-ed out. I found them rather entertaining at first, but after hearing Geraldine a good 15 times a day on the radio for the last year or so, I can't cope anymore. :o If you're not at that stage, they're a nice band to check though.

I loooove Glasvegas - everyone needs to check out this band; they are so fun and original (which is not something I say about most bands today; I'm usually only a Beatles, Elvis, oldies, good music etc. fan). iTunes has one their singles, Geraldine, for free so ou can sample their sound...
