New Music Tuesday: Extended

The last few weeks have resulted in some great summer contributions to Rdio’s catalog. We’ll expand our scope a bit this week to bring you the greatest variety of New Music Tuesday yet. What are you in the mood for: A new album? Some singles? A remix perhaps? If those don’t appease your ears, perhaps something from the past will work.

Queue up some of this music, review your fingers off, and let your friends know what your favorite new additions are. And don’t forget that when you’re done here, there’s more music in the New Releases section.
