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. In addition to the artists featured below, you can also download the first single from Jessica Simpson's forthcoming country album, new music from dance club sensation Hercules and Love Affair, and a new album from the Oscar-winning musicians Three 6 Mafia. Here are today's selections:

I don't know what they're saying, but I like it: If you haven't discovered the Icelandic band Sigur Rós yet, now's the time: Their new album, Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust (translated to With a Buzz in Our Ears, We Play Endlessly), sounds so far like the band's most upbeat to date. I love the percussion in the first track, "Gobbledigook," and "Inní mér syngur vitleysingur" makes me smile.

The '80s called. They want their music back: Mötley Crüe's ninth album, Saints Of Los Angeles, is the first album with all four original members in more than a decade, and instead of reinventing the wheel, the guys stuck with what they know: big-haired rock 'n' roll. The reviews so far have been so-so, but tracks like "Down at the Whiskey" and "Chicks = Trouble" (and by "chicks" surely they mean "Pam") are mostly getting the thumbs-up.

Two more selections to go, so


Double the pleasure: Most people know the Watson Twins from Jenny Lewis' solo foray, but on their first full-length album they demonstrate that they can stand alone (together) as well. The LA Times called the album "voluptuously pleasurable", and I've already downloaded their lovely cover of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven."

Get a head start on Wall-E: Seriously, those sad eyes on that little robot are so adorable! If you're as excited as I am for this movie, you can prep yourself by downloading the entire original soundtrack by Thomas Newman as well as a new single from Peter Gabriel called, ""Down to Earth."
