Each week the Digital Trends staff selects three albums that we think you should know about. Not in-depth reviews, just passing on some music we like.
This duo of electro-rockers from Austin is back with their fourth album and the first since 2008’s Robotique Majestique. Frontman Aaron Behrens brings the rock star grit and drummer/producer Thomas Turner brings the catchy, danceable beats.
For fans of: Bassnectar, Daft Punk, Gorillaz
Indie master-whistler Andrew Bird is now releasing this entirely instrumental album, which was previously only available with the deluxe edition of 2009’s Noble Beast, as its own LP. Anyone who is a fan of Bird or both classical and indie music will enjoy this experimental record.
For fans of: Sufjan Stevens, M. Ward, St. Vincent
Country-pop sweetheart Taylor Swift is back with her much anticipated release, Speak Now. The songs are more mature, Swift is almost 21, and now seem to come from real life instead of imagination. The album hits on everything from the Kanye West controversy, a rumored fling with John Mayer, and girlfriends of ex-boyfriends.
For fans of: Demi Lovato, Carrie Underwood, Miley Cyrus
