A new week means new music.
A bunch of quality releases are presently streaming online prior to their official release dates.
At National Public Radio’s First Listen page, you can hear a new collection by the singer-songwriter Aimee Mann.
The album features a duet with The Shins frontman James Mercer in the tumultuous Living a Lie.
Other new releases available on the NPR page is Shields by the New Yorkers Grizzly Bear and I Bet on Sky by the American indie-veterans Dinosaur Jr.
All three albums will be officially released on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, on the AOL Music page, you can hear up to 12 new releases.
Standouts includes New York rapper DMX’s comeback album Undisputed.
While it’s not a major development from his gritty sound, DMX’s signature gruff delivery over funk-driven beats by J R Rotem (I Don’t Dance) and Swizz Beats (What they Don’t Know) makes Undisputed a welcome return.
Also streaming is Away from the World by Dave Matthews Band.
Fans of their debut, 1994′s Under The Table and Dreaming and their breakthrough Crash (2006) will find a lot to to enjoy here.
