New Music Today

What to Download: New Music Today
Tuesdays are big in entertainmentville: not only do all the new DVD releases hit Netflix, but new music also pours into stores. So I take a spin through each week's music releases and pick out some albums and tracks worthy of a download.

So hot right now: We all need pop music to lighten up our iPods every now and then, and that's what Cobra Starship is here to do. With song titles like "Pete Wentz Is the Only Reason We're Famous," it's clear that these guys aren't taking themselves — or anything — too seriously. They may not be the next big thing as far as muscianship goes, but their Summer anthem, "Good Girls Go Bad," is pretty damn catchy. Plus, it features Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester, giving us a taste of what her upcoming album may sound like.

From one mess to another: Erika Jayne makes her album debut with Pretty Mess, but her songs have proved chart-friendly on the Billboard dance charts. While most of the tracks are highly danceable (see: "Everybody Wants Some") Jayne slows it down just a bit with the album's title track and gets a little sentimental on us with "Without You." Jayne has been compared to Madonna, though I'm getting more of a Kylie Minogue vibe. Her electronic dance album just might be perfect for the club scene or a late-night party in your living room.
One more album to download if you read more.

That country twang: Country star George Strait is still going strong with the release of his 26th album. Twang features top country hit "Living for the Night," which Strait co-wrote with his son, Bubba. My favorite is probably the spunky "Same Kind of Crazy" because the lyric "she's the same kind of crazy as me" makes me smile. Strait released his first album 28 years ago, so check this out if you're into the tried and true of the music industry.
