What to Download: New Music on iTunes

Tuesdays are big in entertainmentville: 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's what's on my list this week:

Unmistakable voice: I've been excited about the new Ray LaMontagne album, Gossip in the Grain, and am so glad it's already getting some high marks from music critics. The trademark soulful, gruff vocals are all there and familiar on tracks like "You Are the Best Thing" and "Let it Be Me," but there's also something different going on in songs like "Meg White" and "Hey Me, Hey Mama" that's a pleasant surprise. I think I'll download the whole thing.

Pretty ditties: I like Ingrid Michaelson's big hit single, "The Way I Am," and was curious to check out her new album today called Be OK. The title track is upbeat and bouncy, there's a lovely cover of "Over the Rainbow," and "You and I" is pretty darn cute. There are also a couple of live recordings, including "The Chain" performed in Webster Hall.

One more selection, so just

.

Finding a balance: I've been a fan of Keane through the band's ups and downs and am happy to report that Keane's newest album, Perfect Symmetry, is being received pretty well. USA Today says this album "finds the group moving onward and upward, at least musically speaking." The first song, "Spiralling," is great, and "Better Than This" is quirky and fun.
