New Release Sampler, 10/22/13
by Linda Ryan | October 26, 2013
We've got a little something for everyone in this batch of new releases, including Katy Perry's Prism, which features her latest single, "Roar." Speaking of roaring, Motorhead's new album, Aftershock, will get your brain buzzing the old-fashioned rawk way! We are particularly fond of "Heartbreaker," but we're confident you'll find your own nugget of noise. Want a quieter, gentler sound? Try Anoushka Shankar's Traces of You, which blends beautiful singer-songwriter melodies with the sitar that she (and her father Ravi) are best known for. An added bonus: Half-sister Norah Jones joins her on the gem "The Sun Won't Set." We've also got new efforts from Miami's DJ Khaled; the retro-loving, lo-fi popsters Best Coast; heartbreaking twangster Brandy Clark; and the punk-pop-meets-goth show that is AFI. We have it all. All you have to do is hit play.
