It's that time! New Music Tuesday is here to set your week off to just the right tune. Whether you're into dance-ready R&B or electro-funk (yes, it's a thing), we're sure you'll find something your ears can get behind. Read on for six brand new releases you ought to be listening to.
Wilder Mind by Mumford & Sons ($10)
The band's follow-up to their massively successful Babel sees the boys swapping in their trademark folk sound for a heavier, more electric direction.
Jackie by Ciara ($18)
Ciara's first album in two years is full of the confidence, attitude, and dance-ready grooves we've come to expect from her.
Choose Your Weapon by Hiatus Kaiyote ($10)
Australia's "future soul" wunderkinds Hiatus Kaiyote's sophomore album is a crackling 70 minutes ripe with electro-funk fusion, psychedlic-jazzy flourishes, and boundary-bending goodness aplenty.
The Waterfall by My Morning Jacket ($14)
MMJ fans should rest assured: The band's seventh album hits all their reliably right notes, with Jim James' downright saintly voice front and center, and the type of lyrics and soaring melodies that could fearlessly lead you off on an adventure.
Fated by Nosaj Thing ($12)
Jason Chung (a.k.a Nosaj Thing) is a master of sustained chilled-out groove. It's easy listening with an edge.
California Nights by Best Coast ($10)
The California-based surf-pop-punk duo trades in some of their drifty, sun-washed lightness for a little more noise and impact.
Watch the hazy, sunset-hued music video for the band's titular first single, "California Nights" below.
