New Music Tuesday - April 24, 2012


Now that Coachella’s over, we all need some new music to fill the void, right? Say no more — this week’s new releases include a live EP from retro-futurist Toro Y Moi, a long-awaited new full length from SoCal punk-poppers Eve 6. It also includes the new Torche album, an EP of hazy pop noir from The Raveonettes, and the latest album from Canadian piano singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright.

For still more new music, consult our notes below, listen to our New Music Tuesday playlist and browse the New Releases yourself.

Playlist Notes

  • Jack White - Blunderbuss
    Jack White is now solo, and his first full-length is more personal than anything he did as a White Stripe.

  • Electric Guest - Mondo
    Los Angeles electronic pop duo Electric Guest drop their debut album this week. The Danger Mouse-produced album is punctuated by chanted vocals, pop hooks, and groovy bass — it’s perfect for your summer playlist.

  • Ed Sheeran and Yelawolf - The Slumdon Bridge EP
    This collaborative EP from UK vocalist Ed Sheeran and Alabama rapper Yelawolf is the product of a 10-hour recording studio marathon. Try out the four tracks born from their whirlwind session.

  • Azealia Banks - “212’”
    The internet sensation’s debut single, “212,” is a rollicking ride through Banks’ multiple talents — her silver tongue, filthy mouth, and soulful croon, all delivered in broad strokes via her larger than life personality. If you haven’t heard this track yet, do yourself a favor.
