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. Here are today's selections:

Early download alert!: Today iTunes has an exclusive deal for you to download the Decemberists' fifth album, The Hazards of Love, which technically drops on March 24. We've already heard one single from the album, which is part of a big, lively story about a woman named Margaret. It's hard for me to pick this apart by track because all the songs fit together in a particular way, but take a listen to the title track first to get a sense of it all.

British rocking: According to the many reviews I've skimmed about the debut album from London band White Lies, it suffers from some pretty silly lyrics but most agree it's still an above-average effort that fans of acts like The Killers and Franz Ferdinand will enjoy. Check out "Farewell to the Fairground" and "Death" for a taste of what these guys can do.

One more cool discovery up next, so


A band to note: At the end of the Ugly Betty episode titled "Things Fall Apart" a really sad song plays to match the intense emotions, and that song was by these guys. Turns out the album isn't set to release until March 31 but is available for download at iTunes right now. So far, I think this is a surprising and exciting band with a haunting sound similar to that of the Fleet Foxes (though with less harmonizing). I think we're going to hear a lot more buzz about these guys (and gal) in the coming weeks. Check out the beautiful "E Minor" as well as the song featured on Betty, "Black Tables."

Thanks for letting us know about the early Decemberists download. I thought I'd have to wait another week.
