New Music Tuesday: Edie Brickell, Cake, Cage The Elephant, N.E.R.D., & British Sea Power

New CDs for January 11, 2011...
  |   Comments

It's time to get back into the swing with the weekly list of new releases finding their way to music store shelves, online retailers, and soulless big box dens of suck.  I've weighed in with my picks for the best 2010 had to offer and now it's time to roll with the new.  To quote Mr. Bono: I'm ready for what's next.

This isn't the first New Music Tuesday of 2011 but it's the first one to have titles worth noting, even if they aren't titles that are going to entice me.   Let's take a look at just a couple of them and then it's up to you to comb through the rest.

Edie Brickell – aka Mrs. Paul Simon – has a new self-titled release out this week and there are new discs from Cage The Elephant, British Sea Power, and Cake.  I'm most familiar with Cake from that group and I'm going to take a pass on them.  Louis CK has a new comedy collection out for those of you who find him funny (I don't) and N.E.R.D. has a compilation out that according to at least one review comes up short when it comes to song selection.

That's about it.  That's all I've got.  Take a look and see if there's anything that strikes you.  Next week is going to be much, much better.
