New Release Sampler, 10/15/2013
This week is filled with new releases from a heap of A-listers. Pearl Jam's Lightning Bolt finds the band continuing to rock out in their tuneful, signature way. "Sirens" is their single, but we also like "Getaway." Willie Nelson's latest was inspired by his hit "To All the Girls I've Loved Before" -- how did an album of duets with just ladies not happen sooner? Check out "She Was No Good for Me," with Miranda Lambert, and "From Here to the Moon and Back," which features none other than Dolly Parton. Meanwhile, Paul McCartney's new album may surprise a lot of people: His single "New" certainly has its Beatles-esque charm, but "Save Us" is a flashback to the '80s by way of The Killers. We've also got some chill sounds from Beats Antique and Cults, harmony-laden roots rock from The Avett Brothers and The Head and the Heart, and new singles from Depeche Mode and David Bowie. It's a bounty for the music lover. Hit play to get started.
