*Dwele, W.ants W.orld W.omen W.W.W. is an multi-faceted concept album. It's split into three parts (corresponding to the title), while also splitting Dwele's personality into three corresponding parts (as the cover shows). Soultracks.com highly recommends the album, saying, "It's a well-known fact that you can't have it all, but Dwele's WWW artfully combines elements of soul and hip-hop in his quest to address the personal and political through his music." Listen to W.W.W., including "Smoke up the Back," featuring Raheem Devaughn and "How I Deal," featuring Slum Village, here.

*Alejandro Escovedo, Street Songs Of Love Street Songs of Love includes guest appearances from Bruce Springsteen and Ian Hunterin. Hear it in its entirety via NPR's First Listen.

*Indigo Girls, Staring Down The Brilliant Dream [Live] The folk vets have a new live album, which is streaming here. *Katzenjammer, Le Pop Katzenjammer's debut album is surprising polished and catchy, considering the band's name translates (from German) literally as "cat's wail"-- the Norwegian group sounds a bit like the Ditty Bops meet CocoRosie, with an occasional dash of Gogol Bordello. Listen to Le Pop here.
