The new music out this week is absolutely about as diverse as you can get with spoof master weird Al and Local Heroes Trampled by Turtles.

1.) “Weird Al” Yankovic: “Mandatory Fun” He's back and some say this is his best c.d. ever. I have heard a few of the tracks and I would not go this far, it's funny but it is no "Eat IT," "Amish Paradise", or "Like a Surgeon".

2.) Jason Mraz :“YES!” (with pop-rock all-girl band Raining Jane)- I am just going to hit the snooze button on this one....ha ha

3.)  Trampled By Turtles :“Wild Animals” -One thing is for sure David Letterman sure loves these guys,as they come fresh off their appearance on his show last night. These local guys are making some serious momentum nationally and this latest album could put them on top!


-Various artists : “Wish I Was Here (Music From The Motion Picture)” (comedy drama film directed by and starring Zach Braff; opens July 18)

-Loverboy : “Unfinished Business” (their first album of all-new original material in seven years)

-Various artists: “The 80s Part 2″ (four-CD, 80-song collection featuring hits by Queen, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, Adam & The Ants, Lionel Richie, Whitney Houston, Soft Cell, Diana Ross, Erasure, Foreigner)
