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.
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.
Today, Alanis Morissette has a new album out, and I'll be giving it a full review later on, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, here are the rest of today's selections:
Weird, but in a good way: I've been anticipating the fifth album release from My Morning Jacket for awhile now, and it's finally here! From what I've heard so far, the band has taken some huge experimental risks and I think it paid off. There are as many typical MMJ down-home tracks like "Librarian" on Evil Urges as there are, as Rolling Stone put it, "wtf moments" (check out "Highly Suspicious" for one example). I just downloaded the entire thing.
The country queen: Emmylou Harris' new album is sad and heartbreaking and beautiful — everything you want and expect from this singing legend. The songs I can't get enough of right now include "Gold", a lovely duet with Dolly Parton, and her quiet cover of Tracy Chapman's "All That You Have is Your Soul". Also, can someone tell me what this lady is drinking that makes her the woman that time forgot? She looks and sounds amazing at age 61!
