Hear tracks from these musicians and many more on our weekly Playlist, below.
- Evanescence - What You Want
Five years since their last release, Evanescence is back with a freedom-themed single off their upcoming third album—this self-titled release is scheduled for October.
- Yellow Ostrich - The Mistress
Fans rejoice! Yellow Ostrich's wildly popular debut album is available again on Rdio. The Mistress' re-release features three new songs and that new car smell—look for the band on tour with their label-mates Ra Ra Riot this fall.
- Maria Taylor - Overlook
While known for her tenure in dream-duo Azure Ray, Maria Taylor as a solo artist is a capable and seasoned songstress. Her delicate yet robust sound traverses lightly over many styles and musical textures.
- Hercules & Love Affair - Blue Songs
Three years after an excellent 2008 debut, Hercules & Love Affair and mastermind DJ Andy Butler took time to perfect this followup album. Featuring a mostly new lineup of vocalists and guest perfomers, their songs are more mellow than you'd expect.
- Mister Heavenly - Out Of Love
This indie supergroup is members of Man Man, Islands and Modest Mouse. While you'll hear strains of their other bands, this is a wholly unique venture and vision for this band of gentlemen.
- Lil Wayne - She Will
Continuing his recent album series, Lil Wayne shares a track off Tha Carter IV, featuring Drake. It's five minutes of Weezy's trademark stream of consciousness flow, which most fans will find incredibly satisfying.
