It's Tuesday! I've already given you some picks to beef up your Netflix queue, but now it's time for your iPod. Check out today's new music releases for what you should download.
The birth of new sound
: The latest from The Flaming Lips, Embryonic
, is the musical equivalent of an acid trip. The band reportedly improvised a lot in the studio, so the entire album feels raw and pretty much all over the place. MGMT joins in on the track Worm Mountain
, Karen O lends silly animal noises (yes, really) to I Can Be a Frog
, and a mathematician spouts out equation, x=y type stuff on Gemini Syringes.
Weird? You bet. Every track is experimental, which means you'll either embrace it for its free-spirited creativity, or write it off as too strange. Either way, it's worth checking out.
Pop culture candy
: Hell has frozen over — Jack White is on the 90210 soundtrack.
Hey, I'm not knocking TV music — I've already professed my love for it
— but I was surprised to see The Raconteurs associated with a CW show. The band lends a wicked guitar riff to the first track Many Shades of Black
(featuring soulful singer Adele) to start the album off. The rest of the playlist includes a mix of new offerings from indie artists and more mainstream pop, but my favorites are the sleepy Valium
by MuteMath and the Postal Service-ish Sunburn
by Owl City.
