More new music, more variety added to our mix

From orchestral arrangements to 50's-style blues, our New Music additions this week bring more variety to our big mix.

Nada Surf's latest project is a 13-track live album recorded this summer with the Babelsberg Film Orchestra in Berlin. The marriage of pop and "pops" works well, and the album, Peaceful Ghosts. makes good listening straight through. We've added the opening track, "Comes A Time," into our New Music rotation and will be dipping further into this release.

In sharp contrast to that lush sound, we have the latest single released from The Rolling Stones' upcoming blues album Blue & Lonesome. This one is a 1954 song by blues harmonica virtuoso Little Walter, "I Hate To See You Go."

Also added to our New Music bin this week:
  • "A 1000 Times" by Hamilton Leithauser + Rostram - The lead track from I Had A Dream That You Were Mine, a collaboration between the former frontman of the Walkmen and the former Vampire Weekend producer.
  • "I Know," a sharp rocker with a cutting lyric from Shovels & Rope's Little Seeds.
  • "Pretty Grids," our latest selection from Jimmy Eat World's Integrity Blues. 
  • And from her generally mellow Day Breaks album, a rocking track called "Flipside" by the fabulous Norah Jones.
