We’ve made this New Music Weekly playlist to give you the jump on the best of all the hot beats that just dropped, which includes selections from the first album in five years from UK icons Primal Scream, the revealing full-length release from former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland, a new set of songs from newly-appointed brewmasters Hanson (who are also putting out a beer called MMMHops), the fifth album in two years from Philadelphia’s prolific dream pop act Work Drugs, and the sophomore effort from Australian electronic duo Empire Of The Sun.

If you find it whets your sonic appetite, there’s much more waiting for you to devour over in the Rdio New Releases. Time for new tunes!
