Without knowing it, this week’s

Without knowing it, this week’s New Music Tuesday would fit nicely in a summer-themed playlist. Surf-rock, catchy dance remixes and breezy jams are peppered between more moody love songs. Sample these new releases and put a little sunshine in your Heavy Rotation.

Brazilian crooner Seu Jorge and his band Almaz cover classics from Kraftwerk and Michael Jackson, to old Brazilian standards in their new album.

Noisy, upbeat, dramatic, sad—there’s bound to be something you like in Portland rockers Menomena’s 4th album, Minds.

The man behind Owl City puts away his electronic bleeps and bloops in favor of a more acoustic sound. Will you like Sky Sailing’s love-centric ballads?

If you’re looking for a summer roadtrip soundtrack, reserve The Best Coast’s Crazy for You for the beach portion of your journey.

You. Make. Me. Feel Like I’m Living A. Teen. Age. Dream. Thank you, Katy Perry, for indulging in our collective Teenage Dream, the second single from her upcoming album of the same name.

Just when you thought you overplayed LCD Soundsystem’s latest album, This is Happening, out comes I Can Change and You Wanted a Hit remixes from Tiga, Soulwax and Stereogamous.
