If naming your most preferred style of music is as difficult as, say, naming your most loved child, then we won’t make you play favourites in this week’s new music releases.
Feel free to equally embrace the eighth album from the incomparable Devendra Banhart, the anticipated debut from Chicago indie rock siblings Wild Belle, a killer Golden State collab between rising rappers Problem & IamSu, and the new EP by UK electronic legend Squarepusher. That’s just for starters. Spin the New Music Tuesday playlist to hear the latest from these and many more artists. The Playlist Notes below add a few more details. And the Rdio New Releases section contains the full granddaddy of this week’s new tunes.
