    There was only one album released by a pop superstar this week. Meanwhile, those on the cusp of arena-filling tours pushed out records hoping to reach the heights of music stardom. That one superstar was Nick Jonas, who released his sophomore effort, Last Year Was Complicated. Fitz & the Tantrums are so close to touring huge arenas, they can taste it, and this week, they released their self-titled, third LP - we caught up with bassist Joe Karnes to discuss the new record. Peter Bjorn and John released their seventh album, and ARTISTdirect caught up with them to discuss Breakin' Point.

    Meanwhile, indie artists were pushing the envelope with their newest releases. Dan Lissvik's debut LP, Midnight, reminded us of what's so special about Balearic Beat. Guitar and rock ‘n roll lovers should take a listen to the new Diarrhea Planet album, Turn To Gold, where guitar solos might just save your soul. And that was only the beginning for a week filled with glowing new releases that shed some light on what and who we might be hearing for years to come.

    Here are our favorites:




    Garbage - Strange Little Birds - Stunvolume


    ARTISTdirect spoke with Garbage's Shirley Manson about the new record, Strange Little Birds, sharing a lifetime with her fans, navigating the male-dominated music industry, and the perspective she's picked up along the way.


    Nite Jewel - Liquid Cool - Gloriette Records

    In ARTISTdirect's interview with Nite Jewel, aka Ramona Gonzalez, she talks about making Liquid Cool all on her own, the split with Secretly, and even her namesake cocktail, a boozy creation made of rye and 100% liquid cool.


    The Invisible - Patience - Ninja Tune


    The Invisible's third full-length effort, Patience, is about as original as pop music gets. It darts in unforeseen directions, while merging electronica, soul, and indie into top-of-the-line pop. It may take a moment to get into it, but Patience is a virtue.


    Band of Horses - Why Are You OK - Interscope


    It's been four years since Band of Horses released a new record. With Why Are You Ok, the band's fifth LP, we understand why. It takes some time to delve into the listlessness of ennui while still figuring out how to make a compelling narrative, which is exactly what Band of Horses does here.


    Clarke:Hartnoll - 2Square - VeryRecords


    ARTISTdirect joined Vincent Clarke for an insight into the process behind 2Square, his working relationship with a fellow synth-geek, and just how it feels to wear so many hats while making a record.
