New Music Releases For August 3 Include Arcade Fire and The Kids Are All Right Soundtrack

What to Download: New Music This Week

Fun at the arcade: Indie rock group Arcade Fire has kept fans waiting for four years for a new album, and its latest doesn't disappoint. As the title suggests, The Suburbs is an ode to the upper middle class life hipsters fear, as lead singer Win Butler croons about being a "Modern Man" and letting "businessmen drink my blood." It's the kind of album that gets better with each play, and my early favorites are "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)" and "The Suburbs."

What the kids are listening to: If you were mildly obsessed with this Summer's release The Kids Are All Right the way I was, then you'll probably be equally as entranced by its soundtrack. Like the film, it has a hip, LA vibe, with tracks from indie artists like Deerhoof ("Milk Man" and "Blue Cash") and Uh Huh Her ("Same High"). Personally, I love that memorable songs from the movie made it on, especially the Joni Mitchell song that Mark Ruffalo and Annette Bening's characters briefly bond over, "All I Want", and MGMT's haunting "The Youth" from the closing credits.
