It's Tuesday, and you know what that means: new music, bitches!!
This week there's a little bit to appease just about everyone's musical appetite with new tunes from +The Strokes and sneak peaks from +Vampire Weekend and Beyonce.
First, some light-hearted, good-natured rock and roll as only they can do it. The Strokes' new album, Comedown Machine, is available for purchase on March 25, but you can stream the full album here thanks to Pitchfork.
The alternative rock fest continues with two new tracks from Vampire Weekend. Their album, Modern Vampires of the City is due May 7: around the same timing as new +Fall Out Boy and Fitz And The Tantrums. Give a listen to 'Diane Young' and 'Step.' Personally, I'm feeling 'Diane Young.' It's got that familiar VW sound without being just a repeat of their past stuff, and I love the dirty beat. 'Step' is going to have to grow on me.
The Queen is back!! With people swearing she didn't actually give birth to Blue Ivy and criticizing her for naming her tour The Mrs. Carter Show, Bounce-say had to show everybody she's still runs shit. In a way I'm hoping these (two? can we really call it two? possibly 1.27) tracks don't make it on the album. They are just plain ghetto retaliation. I gotta admit though, I'd like to hear a remix to 'Bow Down'. Check out 'Bow Down/Been On' here.
Oh, and - in case you've somehow forgotten - new +Justin Timberlake is officially out today!
Truly, all is right with the world.
