The Sound of a New Tuesday

Each week, Rdio’s catalog grows with more of your favorite tunes, both old favorites like Frightened Rabbit and the new music found in New Releases. Today’s New Music Tuesday is perhaps the most diverse yet. Hop from reggae to jazzy soul, indie rock to rap. Perhaps your next favorite album from 2010 is hiding in the ranks of this list.

Straight from a Polaris Music Prize nomination, Dan Mangan is ready to win you over with his second album Nice, Nice, Very Nice.

Former Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry will soon release his upcoming album Olympia. He offers a taste of what’s to come with the You Can Dance EP, including remixes from Padded Cell and John Monkman.

Infuse your afternoon with some soul-jazz. Queue up The Budos Band’s new album The Budos Band III back-to-back with crooner Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed’s third album Come and Get It for hours of finger-tapping funk.

Whether you think he’s a madman, genius or just a musician, reggae legend Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is at it again with Revelation, this time with some help from friends George Clinton and Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.

After releasing his long-awaited Str8 Killa EP, rapper Freddie Gibbs wants you to hear his first single National Anthem.
