Shwayze (GEFFEN)

If you miss Cisco Adler’s Whitestarr and celebrity-dating days, pick up his new project where his melodious voice can be heard singing the catchy choruses of such songs as “Polaroid” (click click!) and “Buzzin’.” Basically this is rap/rock about ladies and booze. And with an MTV spin-off reality show, what’s not to love?

The Hold Steady

Stay Positive (VAGRANT)

Album of the summer until guitarist Tad Kubler announced that he hated Radiohead. Now it’s the album of the decade.

Mark Snow

The X-Files: I Want To Believe (original score) (DECCA)

Legendary composer Mark Snow returns to give voice to all of the things that go bump in the night! Sure to spark up those old discussions about Cigarette Smoking Man’s true loyalties! Chilling!
