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. In addition to these picks, you can download new singles from Taylor Swift, Kanye West, and the Smashing Pumpkins. Here's what's on my list this week:

Holiday spirit: Sure, it's a little on the early side to bust out the tinsel and candy canes, but this is one holiday album that seems like it would be good all year. I've long been a fan of Rosie Thomas's sweet, folky voice, and on A Very Rosie Christmas, she presents her take on Christmas songs both new and old, from ballads like "River" to jazzier, up-tempo tunes like "Why Can't It Be Christmastime All Year." There's also a brief comedy sketch from "Sheila," Thomas's stand-up comedy alter ego.

Come on, Elaine. "Days of Elaine" is the latest song in The Decemberists' singles series, Always the Bridesmaid. The second volume in the series is out today and contains two versions of "Elaine," the regular one and a long one that clocks in at more than six minutes. The EP also includes a cute and somewhat old-timey cover of the Velvet Underground's "I'm Sticking With You."

One more pick for the week, so just

.

Twilight rising. If you're eagerly awaiting the movie release of Twilight, why not dip a toe into the movie's mood right now with the film's soundtrack? The 15-song album includes tracks from Iron and Wine ("Flightless Bird, American Mouth") and Paramore ("Decode," the only song available without buying the whole album, and "I Caught Myself"). But maybe most intriguing are the two tracks from the film's star, Robert Pattinson, including "Never Think."
