What to Download This Week: The Pretenders, The Streets, Rachael Yamagata

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 the songs and albums below ,you can also download the new Oasis and Deerhoof albums.

Six years in the making: Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde may be 57 years old, but her voice still sounds amazingly intact. That's a huge part of why most critics are giving this new album the thumbs-up. Are you ready to rock? Then download "Boots of Chinese Plastic" and the title track, "Break Up the Concrete."

Hip-hop with an accent: The Streets is one British guy named Mike Skinner whose rhythms and rhymes I've been enjoying for years now. I was surprised to find he has a new album out today, and from what I've heard so far, I'm really digging it. These new songs are sunnier than he usually is, and I'm thinking about adding "The Escapist" and "I Love You More (Than You Like Me)" to my collection.

One more after the jump, so

.

Song writing: Rachael Yamagata's new album is a double-disc set that starts out with pretty but sad break-up songs and ends with catchy but angry break-up songs. I'm loving the whole thing so far, but if you just want a taste, I recommend the melancholy "Elephants," the gorgeous "Horizon," and the hard-driving "Faster."

The Pretenders? I'm there! Only, I'd rather download it from Amazon.com. iTunes is crap.
