The only thing that would be better than New Tunes Tuesday would be New Tacos Tuesday—but as I don’t have those cooking skills, you’ll have to hold onto your sombreros and settle for some music and moguls. Olé!---
Daft Punk’s new album Random Access Memories (Columbia Records) is definitely something to be excited about. The electronica, helmet-donning duo have vowed not to produce the same music twice—and they have succeeded. Their new album experiments with live analog-instrumentation and groovy '70s-reminiscent beats. Stream and download from iTunes.
The National’s band members have recently suffered bouts of insomnia—with babies and a 24-month band tour. But their new album, Trouble Will Find Me (Brassland), is anything but sleepy. It's full of leisurely lyrics and relaxed rhythms with a title that is aptly appropriate—trouble will certainly find you if you don’t listen to their casual indie-rock melodies. Find it here.
