Music: This Week's New Music Releases

Alison Goldfrapp

Goldfrapp take a chill pill and eschew the dancefloor with their mellow new disc Seventh Tree. Here's the video for "A & E" which I am assured does not feature Peter Graves:

Edgy R & B diva Erykah Badu comes back from a long lay-off with New AmErykah, Pt. 1: 4th World War which oddly is also the name of a folder on George W. Bush's desktop. Here's the video for "Honey" which opens up in what the ancestors used to call a "record store." Hmmm...

Dreamy shoegazey types Beach House lay some Devotion on us. Here's the sparkly video for "You Came to Me":

Cowboy Junkies simulate a cough-syrup flashback with Trinity Revisited, a re-recorded version of their soporific best seller The Trinity Session -- this time with special guests such as Vic Chestnutt and Natalie they are with Ms. Merchant doing "Working on a Building":

Give Dolly parton credit for self knowledge (and parody) -- her new one is called Backwoods Barbie. In amongst the Nashville bric-a-brac are covers of Smokey Robinson's "The Tracks of My Tears" and Fine Young Cannibals "She Drives Me Crazy." Here's the "Better Get to Livin' " clip featuring the always welcome Amy Sedaris:

Don't forget: If the vids don't play, refresh your browser!
