What to Download: New Music on iTunes

Tuesdays are big in entertainment-ville: Not only do all the new DVD releases hit Netflix, but new music also pours into stores, including iTunes. So I take a spin through each week's iTunes music releases and pick out some albums and tracks worthy of a download. Here are today's selections:

Rock me: The buzzed-about upcoming comedy Hamlet 2, about a high school musical sequel to Shakespeare's Hamlet, has its soundtrack out today. It feels wrong to laugh at these song titles, but I can't help it — and that might be a sign of how I'll respond to the movie itself. Tracks include "Rock Me Sexy Jesus." The rest, you'll have to check out on your own, because I feel dirty typing some of them.

California folk: Tristan Prettyman is one of those relaxing, sunshiny singers who's always good for chilling out (see also: Jack Johnson). Today iTunes has an exclusive live session full of lovely songs — including a surprising cover of Britney Spears's "Toxic" and a great original song called "Madly."

I've got a mellow lad up next, so

.

Lazy music: Neil Halstead, a member of the band Mojave 3, has been making sleepy, lazy, lovely music for a while now, and I've been looking forward to his new solo album, Oh! Mighty Engine. So far, so good! I've already downloaded "Sometimes the Wheel" and "Paint a Face."
