New Tunes Tuesday: TV on the Radio, Ariel Pink, Anawan


Greetings, music fans. Here's your weekly sampling of the new tunes that are coming out this week, and today's eclectic offerings range from off-kilter pop to stark, grating rock. Out of the week's various new releases, my favorite is probably the latest album from New York City indie-rockers TV on the Radio. I'm especially digging the track below, and not just because the music video is so eye-catching.        

Also out now is new stuff from New York City indie-pop band Anawan, Canadian indie-pop/garage group The Meligrove Band, Los Angeles freak-pop musician Ariel Pink, and Chicago rock foursome Pink Avalanche.

As a sneak peak for next week, check out the sweet debut album from enigmatic New York City rapper Your Old Droog at NPR First Listen
