Tuesday, Full of Music

It wasn’t hard spotting some of the more notable albums for today’s New Music Tuesday. If you’re in the mood for something fresh, dig in — you’ll find something to love.

Searching for upbeat break-up songs? Find all the uplifting heartbreak and modern motown you can handle on Fitz & The Tantrum’s debut album, Pickin’ Up the Pieces.

Isobel Campbell, who? She may be better known as one member of the lighthearted music collective Belle & Sebastian, but she is a talented songstress in her own right. Listen in as she continues her ascent as a solo artist in Hawk.

If No Age’s new EP, Glitter, is any indication, the world should brace itself for a more mature, less noisy, more refined sound in their next album, Everything in Between. These guys are still a rollicking good time, but they seem to have mellowed. Did you like the noise? Listen to find out if this new music is up to snuff.

The Trigbag Chronicles is a 10 track retrospective of Trentemøller, the Danish musician and producer. It compiles some of his brightest contributions to electronic music in the last decade.

While we still have to wait for Antony & The Johnsons 4th album, Swanlights, you can sample his upcoming offering with the Thank You for Your Love EP. Rounding out this release is a cover of the Bob Dylan song, Pressing On, and John Lennon’s Imagine.

You’ve met California Gurls and already glimpsed Teenage Dreams but now it’s time to dive in and fully embrace Katy Perry’s third full-length album.

Honorable Mentions:

Pro Tip: If you’ve asked Rdio to have more Queen or Miley Cyrus available, you got it.
