CD REVIEWS: Jay Malinowski: Bright Lights & Bruises

Jay Malinowski is best known as the singer/lead guitarist for Bedouin Soundclash, but his solo album, Bright Lights & Bruises, shows that he can stand on his own.

The album begins with a strong opening track called "Thieves in the Night," which starts off sounding like Coldplay's X&Y era.

CD REVIEWS: Four Tet: There Is Love In You

The fifth full-length album from British electronic musician Kieran Hebden (better known as Four Tet), isn't a dramatic departure from his earlier work. Nor will it disappoint fans of Four Tet's already well-established oeuvre. The album is barely over 45 minutes long and undemanding enough to not need your full attention.

CD REVIEWS: OK Go: Of the Blue Colour of the Sky

You may know OK Go from their infamous viral videos on YouTube - including the treadmill dance routine in "Here it Goes Again" - from their previous album Oh No. Of the Blue Colour of the Sky is the latest album from the unique digital rock band. The album starts out with a Prince-like track, appropriately titled "WTF?" OTBCOTS is a departure from their first two albums, with a funkier, dancier sound.

CD REVIEWS: Beach House: Teen Dream

Since 2004, Beach House has been the leader of the dream-pop scene with slow, simple pop melodies layered over lush soundscapes to create achingly beautiful songs of love and longing. Vocalist Victoria Legrand and guitarist/keyboardist Alex Scally have crafted a winning sound that is completely their own, and with Teen Dream it seems they've truly perfected it.
