This year has already gotten off to a good start where studio albums from our favorite artists are concerned, but as we enter the third month of 2011 samples from a number of releases we’ve had our eyes on are now available. We wanted to take this opportunity to point our readers in the direction of places to check out these new LPs.
R.E.M. – Collapse Into Now
Head to NPR’s First Look to listen to what the band and some reviewers consider a “return to form” for the seminal alt-rock band.
Robbie Robertson – How to Become Clairvoyant
I’ve had a chance to listen to the whole album and it’s by far my favorite of 2011 thus far. You can sample He Don’t Live Here No More and When The Night Was Young through Robertson’s Facebook Page.
READ ON for tastes of a few more new releases…
