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.

Let's rock: The Arctic Monkeys are back with their third album, this time with the production expertise of Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme. Humbug offers a solid list of rock and roll tracks, slowing things down a bit with the first single "Crying Lightning." I'm also partial to "Cornerstone" and the first track, "My Propeller."

Heap of faith: After giving Imogen Heap's third album Ellipse a listen, the first word that came to my mind was "lovely." The songs have a clean, almost new-age feel, showcasing Heap's voice as she harmonizes with herself on track after track. I love how she mixes things up a bit in "Earth," and "Swoon" is also one of my early favorites.

One more album to download, so just read more.

Break on through: If you're in the mood for something a little more bubbly, you might want to check out Colbie Caillat's sophomore album, "Breakthrough." It's more of what we heard on her debut record, which included hits like "Feelings Show." As for her newest venture, I predict that "Falling For You" will get some radio play.
