State In The Real – Penn State Music Scene

New Music Tuesday! – September 18th 2012

Another Tuesday, another spattering of fantastic new music for your indulgence!


The Killers – Battle Born


Brandon Flowers and company released their fourth album, the epic and powerful Battle Born. This is easily the band’s most diverse effort yet, a melding of heart-pounding disco and sky-high rock.  Their lead single off the album “Runaways” is a fantastic track especially, one that’s worth keeping on repeat.


Ben Folds Five – The Sound of the Life of the Mind


Ben Folds Five are back with their first new album in over 10 years, titled The Sound of the Life of the Mind. If you enjoy copious amounts of snarky lyrics and piano, then this album is definitely for you! “Do It Anyway” is easily one of the best songs on The Sound of the Life of the Mind, an up-tempo feel-good track that’s guaranteed to bring you a smile!


GOOD Music – Cruel Summer


Cruel Summer is a compilation album of several hip-hop artists including Kanye West, Kid Cudi, 2 Chainz and more. Together, they created a scalding hot collection of rap and hip-hop, with the single “Clique” currently dominating the radio and rap charts.


P!nk – The Truth About Love


Pop-rocker P!nk released her 6th studio album The Truth About Love, kicking up the candy-sweet pop tunes and bringing in some fun features. We featured her duet with Lily Allen a few days ago, and now we’ve got her fist-in-the-face ballsy song “Slut Like You.”


Nelly Furtado- The Spirit Indestructible


Nelly Furtado released her 5th album The Spirit Indestructible. Poppy, dancy, and fun, it’s an album for any radio music lover. Check out her single “Spirit Indestructible.”


Grizzly Bear – Shields

Grizzly Bear went back to the drawing board and busted out the supreme indie-rock sound for their 4th studio album Shields. Check out their track “Sleeping Ute” here!
