It is a fairly low key week for new releases, but definitely quite a variety and as always some pretty cool compilations.

1.) Sara Bareilles :  "The Blessed Unrest"  - I have to admit that I love her latest single "Brave," It has a great message and after watching the video it really hots home what the song is all about. Check it out below.

2.) Pet Shop Boys: "Electric"  -Words can not express how happy I am to hear new Pet Shop Boys, they bring back some fun memories from back in the day. The first single off the album is called "Vocal"  and happy to report they keep the techno dance vibe alive. Two thumbs up!

3.) Cody Simpson (Australian pop singer) "Surfers Paradise" (guests: Ziggy Marley, Asher Roth)- The down under version of Justin Bieber at 16 years old he is starting to make quite a splash.

Other Releases:

-The Verve Pipe- "Are We There Yet?"

-Cherry Poppin' Daddies -"White Teeth, Black Thoughts [MP3]" (guests: Buckwheat Zydeco, Zoot Horn Rollo)

-The Cult: "Electric Peace" (1987 album, "Electric," paired with the abandoned "Peace"; remastered; two CDs)

-Various artists "That Lovin' Feelin': Best of Blue-Eyed Soul" (14-song collection, feat. Boz Scaggs, Hall & Oates, The Doobie Brothers, The Righteous Brothers, Simply Red)
