Several albums I’m personally very excited about getting my hands on today, folks. Check out what’s being released into the world of music and be sure to let us know in the comments what you’ll be picking up.

Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues
It feels like forever since Fleet Foxes self-titled 2008 album took the indie music world by storm, bringing with it a groundswell of folk-influenced acts, and now Fleet Foxes are finally back with their follow-up! Will you be one of the lucky fans checking them out when they play the sold-out Hollywood Palladium Saturday?

Beastie Boys – Hot Sauce Committee Part Two
They are just one of those bands that everyone I know loves regardless of their usual preference in genre. C’mon, it’s the Beastie Boys! You gotta check this one out.

Dredg – Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy
This is the non-metal band that has won the heart of our resident metalhead, Shannon. Who knew such a thing was possible? Not only can you pick up their new album today, but if you live in LA, you can catch them playing the Roxy tonight and tomorrow with The Dear Hunter.

Dave Aude – Audacious 3
Aude’s worked with everyone from Lady Gaga and Madonna to Britney Spears and Beyoncé. Check out Tim’s review of the super-accomplished producer’s latest release here!
