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 are today's selections:
Always on my TV: I feel like the All American Rejects have made a career out of pumping out palatable, poppy, kinda-emo rock that works perfectly for TV shows like The Hills or even One Tree Hill. I wasn't expecting too much in the way of fresh and new from the band's new album, but there are some stand-out tracks. Check out "Gives You Hell" and "Fallin' Apart" for something to tap your toes to.
That band Pete Wentz is in: I sometimes forget Pete Wentz is a professional bass player, what with all the coverage of his personal life that's out there. But his band, Fall Out Boy, has a new album out today, and from what I've heard so far, it sounds like the kind of music fans have been waiting for. I may be a convert myself, thanks to songs like "Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes" and "Coffee's for Closers."
One more still to come, so read more.
Fun times: Ever since I caught one of their super-cute electro-pop songs in a recent iPod commercial, I've been excited to add more music from the Danish group The Asteroids Galaxy Tour to my iPod. Today iTunes has some exclusive live tracks available for download, including "Around the Bend" from the TV spot and the groovy "The Sun Ain't Shining No More."
