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.

Something unique: The Dead Weather is another of Jack White's projects, and man does this band rock with a dark, sexy style that's completely their own. I like this description I found in a review of the album, Horehound: "All the members' earlier bands, save the Raconteurs, traffic in sex, threat and kink. But none has done so with the devilish abandon these guys achieve together." Right on. There's some rough-sounding rock ("Treat Me Like Your Mother"), some sultry stuff that reminds me of the '70s ("60 Feet Tall"), and plenty of dramatic sensuality ("Rocking Horse"). But the sounds on this album can't be categorized too neatly. It's just a great mishmash of something totally new.

Two more to chat about if you

.

No surprise, indeed — On Daughtry's latest album, Leave This Town, he has a song titled "No Surprise," which perhaps could be the anthem for the whole album. All the songs sound similar and pretty generic, but at the same time, Daughtry's passionate vocals keep you listening somehow. I like the guitars in the very sing-along-able "What I Meant to Say," and the more tender track "Tennessee Line" provides a bit of sweet relief in the lineup.

That's a lot of Summer: This soundtrack comes out today and it's such a good mix, I'm writing a full review. Stay tuned!
