New music to buy/stream/steal.
Arctic Monkeys, Suck It and See
The Internet says: "Their last two albums, 2007’s “Favourite Worst Nightmare” and 2009’s “Humbug,” seemed like showcases to prove they could rock hard. The latest, “Suck It and See” (English slang for “give it a try”), slows the pace but ultimately feels even more detached." (Los Angeles Times)
Watch: Four songs from the album, performed live on the chat show Later with Jools Holland
Tech N9ne, All 6's and 7's
The Internet says: "Understandably, it’s easy to get caught up in the rapid, what-did-he-just-say nature of N9ne’s flow, but it is his lyrical ability that truly makes him shine. He doesn’t just rhyme fast for the sake of it." (HipHop DX)
Watch: "He's a Mental Giant," the first video from the album.
Def Leppard, Mirrorball: Live and More
The Internet says: "It's purely live, I really didn't have to do much of anything. We're pretty consistent as a band and so we had lots of great stuff to choose from that didn't need any punching up." — Phil Collen, talking about the live album, in a recent Noisecreep interview.
Watch: "Pour Some Sugar on Me"--2011! Has "radar phone" been replaced with "red iPhone," or is my hearing just bad?
