New Music Tuesday, June 28, 2011

There may be some novelty to this week’s New Releases, but don’t let that distract you from finding something amazing. Here are some highlights from today’s New Music Tuesday playlist—read on for a few extra-special highlights. And if we missed your favorite new album, make sure to collaborate and add a track to the mix.

Playlist Notes

  • Tame Impala, InnerSpeaker: Tame Impala borrows from quite a few different musical styles. Whether you like the psychedelic jam-band or exploratory noise that sometimes pops up, this Aussie band’s debut album is a balanced and even approach making these sounds their own.

  • Thievery Corporation, Culture Of Fear: Although Thievery Corporation initially came to public consciousness thanks to a well-placed spot on the Garden State soundtrack, there’s much more to them than a few singles. Their sixth studio album is diverse, with elements of reggae, dub and DJ scratches.

  • David Guetta, Little Bad Girl (feat.Taio Cruz & Ludacris): If One Love was any indication, David Guetta has the secret formula: How to Make People Dance. This single is from his upcoming fifth album, Nothing But the Beat.

  • Graham Wright, Shirts vs. Skins: After toying with other musical projects, Tokyo Police Club keyboardist Graham Wright ventured out on his own to release his first official studio album. It’s fun, like a summer day in the park.

  • Curren$y, Weekend at Burnie’s: In a brilliant combination of interests, Curren$y’s sixth album, Weekend at Burnie’s, is a rhythm-and-beats homage to a love of smoking pot, and also the classic movie, Weekend at Bernie’s.

  • Beyoncé, 4: To describe her career as incredible would be an understatement. Since starting with Destiny’s Child and moving on to solo albums like Dangerously In Love, I Am…Sasha Fierce and Dream Girls, Beyoncé brings it again in her fouth album, 4.
