Ready for some brand new beats in your ears? The last release date in February includes the long-awaited full-length debut from Seattle’s Ivan & Alyosha, the latest from Berlin techno DJ Ellen Allien, and the fourth LP by Kansas City rapper Kutt Calhoun. We also have a little somethin' extra for you today: Rdio-exclusive bonus tracks from California indie pop act Finish Ticket's debut album.

Our New Music Tuesday playlist will quickly give you an idea of the breadth and depth of this week’s offerings. The Playlist Notes below point out more key releases, and if you’re like Depeche Mode and you “Just Can’t Get Enough” (music nerd humor alert), there’s even more to explore in the Rdio New Releases.
