This week’s New Releases bring a plethora of great tunes to your ears. New music from the likes of Swedish dance-pop troupe Icona Pop, piano songstress A Fine Frenzy, lo-fi slacker Mac DeMarco, hip-hop standard-bearer K’Naan, and quirky pop songwriter Mika promise a week’s worth of listening, but as per usual, there’s more.
The Luyas - Animator
The new full-length by the indie-pop outfit, known for their eclectic instrumentation, is a cathartic album that explores themes of tragedy and mortality. Don’t miss them at our Rdio Live in NYC show on October 20!
Jason Lytle - Dept. Of Disappearance
The former Grandaddy frontman fuses themes of everyday life with grand, sweeping beauty on his latest solo album.
Jason Aldean - Night Train
Country star Jason Aldean can be as rough’n’tumble as he can be heartfelt. Fifth album balances both, all punctuated by his smooth country croon.
Placebo - B3 EP
The glammy Brits bridge the distance between their 2009 album Battle for the Sun and their next album with a five-song EP. Give a listen for hints as to what their forthcoming seventh studio album might sound like.
