In Stores Now And Coming Soon: New LPs By Ludacris & Disturbing Tha Peace, Enrique Iglesias, Ladytron & More

Not one to stay quiet for long, Ludacris and his Disturbing Tha Peace posse make some noise as they release Golden Grain Tuesday (September 17).

Slightly less flamboyantly, Enrique Iglesias unveils his Spanish album Quizas (meaning “maybe”) alongside alt-metal rockers Disturbed’s Belief and Built to Spill front man Doug Martsch’s solo effort Now You Know.

The electro-punk sounds of Ladytron return with Light & Magic while the folk sounds of Joan Osborne do not return on How Sweet it Is, an album of contemporary R&B covers like Otis Redding’s “These Arms of Mine” and Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet it Is.”

The Vandals may fancy themselves punk rock, but their new album bills them as Internet Dating Superstuds, Shadows Fall learn The Art of Balance, and the double urging of OK Go’s OK Go reminds us that we still have a whole list of new releases to get to, so let’s get to it.
