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.

Modest, Modest Mouse: Indie darlings Modest Mouse have been around since 1993, but made their mainstream break in 2004 with the success of the song "Float On" and the album Good News for People Who Love Bad News. Since then they've released just one other CD, but along the way have amassed quite of collection of unreleased tracks and B-sides. Being released on its new EP, No One's First, and You're Next, are the re-polished versions of these songs. In addition to this EP, check out the Heath Ledger-directed video for Modest Mouse's "King Rat," which recently came online.

Must-have music: As featured in my monthly must-haves, Yim Yames' EP of George Harrison covers comes out today. Simply titled Tribute To, the six-song disc — which was recorded days after Harrison's death in 2001 — includes classics like "My Sweet Lord," and "All Things Must Pass." If you don't recognize the name, Yim Yames traditionally goes by Jim James and is the lead-singer of My Morning Jacket. It's cool to hear Yim/Jim a little more acoustic and pared-down. Download this one if you're a fan of Jacket or Harrison.


One more download worth checking out if you


A little bit country: Currently No. 1 on the iTunes album chart is the self-titled debut from country act Gloriana. Reaching the top of the iTunes chart is impressive for any artist, but it's especially noteworthy coming from a new country act. The group is building on the success of its first single, "Wild at Heart." If you're feeling a little more country than rock-and-roll, this one's for you.
