MusicRecommended By Rdio

Listen to: This is Solo by Solo

“This Dutch duo with the difficult-to-Google name are somewhat reminiscent of Kings of Convenience, but with an edge and minus the harmonies. Still, it’s spacious, lovely minimalist music, with haunting melodies and deep lyrics.”

MusicNew Music Weekly

1/11/11 and New Music Tuesday

Are you feeling lucky? Maybe some new Cake, Cage the Elephant, a new Chris Bathgate single or remixes of M.I.A., Ladytron, RJD2 will take your Tuesday to the next level. Sample some new music today and find something to power you through your week.

Playlist Notes

  • Cage the Elephant, Thank You, Happy Birthday: Back with their sophomore album, Cage the Elephant is just as raucous and frantic as ever.

  • Cake, Showroom of Compassion: Using styles previously shrugged off, like reverb and pianos, Cake went for a different sound in their first album since 2004’s Pressure Chief.

  • Ballaké Sissoko & Vincent Segal, Chamber Music: World-famous kora player, Ballaké Sissoko, records with the French cellist Vincent Segal. The result is beautiful, sparse, and sophisticated—surely the work of two master musicians.

  • Raphael Saadiq, Radio: A single off his fifth solo album, the former lead singer of Tony! Toni! Toné! hails back to the early days of rock ‘n roll.

  • Louis C.K., Hilarious: Although no tracks from his newest comedy album, Hilarious, are on the New Music Tuesday playlist, crass comedy mastermind Louis C.K. is on top of his game—once again discussing his kids, being a single parent and the absurdity of life in America.
