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.
British pop songstress Natasha Bedingfield is back with a full album of infectious, uplifting pop hits, which is exactly what Bedingfield does best. Her first singles from the album, “Touch” and “Strip Me,” are both high-energy combinations of pop, rock, and euro club influences that showcase Bedingfield’s big voice, perfect for the discerning lover of pop music.
While the digital download of this EP (which seems like a misnomer since it as long as a full-length album) was available months ago, the physical CD has just now been released and we want to make sure you’ve heard it. The indie master composer/folkie returned with this EP just before his epic latest release The Age of Adz. The EP is less electronic than Adz and has a few quiet moments, along with two versions of “All Delighted People” and 17-minute ode “Djohariah.”
Look At What The Light Did Now sees indie-pop and Apple princess Feist take fans into her creative process with a documentary DVD and a bonus CD featuring performances from the film and the unreleased song of the project’s same title. Two short films and the album’s corresponding music videos are also included in the set.
