March is turning out to be quite the month for new music, and we're only on day 2. As if it wasn't enough that three albums I was really interested in came out this week--Two Door Cinema Club, Ellie Goulding and Alphabeat--two of the albums that come out next week are available for preview.
Gorillaz Plastic Beach can be heard on The Guardian's Web site, and Broken Bells's debut is streaming at MySpace. I listened to Broken Bells yesterday and really liked it. It reminded me a bit of The Good, the Bad and The Queen which, like Gorillaz last album, and Broken Bells, are all produced by Danger Mouse.
I just started listening to Gorillaz for the first time. So far, it's a blend of classical strings and hip-hop.
