Troy Ave takes you to the streets of Brooklyn on Major Without a Deal. 

Troy_AveGetting down with Puff Daddy, Mase, Fabolous, Jadakiss and Cam’ron gives the album a Bad Boy throwback feel, but the singles with Ty Dolla $ign and A$AP Ferg keeps the sound updated and soulful. “Doo Doo” is a fun song for a sing-along. –J Boogie

Carnegie Hall’s grand acoustics agree with Ryan Adams’ voice.

Ryan_AdamsAnyone familiar with Ryan Adams knows that it’s difficult to really appreciate the nuances of his inflections at low volumes. Ten Songs From Live At Carnegie Hall demands your full attention. But it’s worth it – especially in those vulnerable moments of “Oh My Sweet Carolina” and the nearly whispered “Sylvia Plath.” –Eric Shea

 

Muse rage against the machine with their highly politicized concept album Drones.  

Muse“Are you a human drone? Are you a killing machine?” From start to finish, the message in Drones is anything but subtle. Every song is a passionate war cry of rebellion against the over militarized powers that be, set to the group’s electric, bombastic, stadium rock. –Zach Mack

 

 

Galantis Brings a Big Dose of Fun on Pharmacy.

GalantisSwedes Christian Karlsson (of Miike Snow) and Linus Eklow (aka Style of Eye) set their sights on the dance floor as duo Galantis. Their debut album Pharmacy adds a shot of playful surrealism to festival-style EDM pop, without losing sight of the pure pleasures of sing-alongs and uplifting melodies. –Party Ben

 

Diamond Youth return with their most infectiously power-poppy record yet.

Diamond_YouthFor a while there, these guys were a dead ringer for Queens Of The Stone Age, but on Nothing Matters all that stoner-y swagger takes a backseat to big Weezer-worthy hooks and a more laid-back psychedelic poppiness, replete with soaring vox, fuzzed out noise-pop crunch and a lush, dream-like production. –Andee Connors

 

Louder than a bomba.

Bomba_EstereoAmanecer is the third full-length from this influential duo, showcasing succinctly why Colombian artists have emerged as some of the most adventurous and groundbreaking players in contemporary Latin music. With Bomba Estereo being amongst the foremost trailblazers of this national renaissance, experimentation and rampant musical cross-pollination inspire on this effort. Don’t miss them in concert, either! –Marcos Juarez

    Here is something that I'd like to see changed about Pandora... I HATE that while listening to Pandora, after listening to a few songs in a row the station goes DEAD!!!! (I like being able to pick the type of music I like to listen to!) However, the only way I'm aware to correct the problem requires me backing out of the application, shutting it down, & restarting it. There really should be a way for Pandora to correct this problem. It has been this way for the past several years of listening, as I listen while I'm at work. Will someone please look into the matter? I can't recommend this station to anyone because the people who I associate with have all had the same problem. Thanks for listening, Rose

      Hi Winnie! Your Pandora account follows your email address and not your device so you should have no problem accessing your account on your tablet. You may need to install the app on your tablet, though. Email us and we can help: http://pdora.co/writeus. -Kim
