Hold Music

While we're waiting for the votes to be tabulated for our blonde imposter contest, how about a little music for the interim? I guarantee that this stuff is catchier than the muzak they make you listen to when you're usually put on hold.

Architecture in Helsinki will release their third album on August 7. Places Like This is a bit of an evolution from their previous twee pop...the band experiments with some new calypso, electronica, and dance music sounds while building on the diverse instrumentation found on In Case We Die and Fingers Crossed. All together, it's an odd combination of genres but I think they pull it off.

Another August release is The New Pornographers' Challenger, which is set to appear in stores on the 21st. The first single "My Rights Versus Yours" has leaked so here's a little taste of what's to come.

Sure to be the favorite summer album of all fans of onomatopoeia (and babies!), Spoon's Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga will hit the streets on July 10. Merge is offering a sweet preorder deal where you get a limited edition bonus disc of 22 minutes of extra music. Gimme Fiction was one of my 2005 favorites with a very high play count, and after a few listens to Ga Ga, I'm sure it will be on my 2007 list.
