    Another Friday is here, which means a bunch of new albums are available to music lovers, and whether you prefer to download, stream, or pick up a hard copy, there's is a new record out that's right up your alley. Nada Surf dropped their eighth studio album, You Know Who You Are via Barsuk. Ray LaMontagne is back with a new record, "Ouroboros" (RCA). Tiga has returned with some naughty, straight-to-the-dance-floor grooves, releasing No Fantasy Required (Counter). Violent Femmes debuted their first album in over a decade and half, We Can Do Anything (PIAS America). The always dependable M. Ward released his first solo album in four years More Rain (Merge). And the second most surprising album released today, ColleGrove, from the mouths of 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne, reminded us that Kanye West can sometimes stick to his word.

    Some underground, soon-to-be superstars also pushed out new music this week. Adult Books dropped some lines to ARTISTdirect about their newest album, Running From The Blows (Lollipop). Swedish indie pop band Miike Snow released their aptly titled third record, iii (Atlantic). Tokimonsta premiered Fovere (Young Art), which we are sure we're going to hear all year long.

    Here are our favorites:

    Esperanza Spalding - Emily's D+Evolution - Concord Records

    Esperanza Spalding has already won four GRAMMYs, but that doesn't mean she's happy to disappear with that Best New Artist award. Her newest effort combines rock and funk, and shows us that there's still a lot we haven't heard from the genre-defying standup bassist and singer-songwriter.


    Loretta Lynn - Full Circle - Legacy Recordings

    It's been almost twelve years since Loretta Lynn has released a new album. She's finally back with the powerful, yet grounded Full Circle. It's a more-than-impressive late-career album from one of country music's most accomplished artists.


    Kendrick Lamar - untitled unmastered

    It might be a compilation of previously unreleased tracks, but untitled unmastered reminds us all that Kendrick Lamar is on top of the rap game. Three tracks have been previously performed on TV and there's a lot to say about the other five as well, but we'd prefer to let the music speak for itself.
