Doll Domination, Pussycat Dolls (Interscope): There are many quarrels I could pick with the Pussycat Dolls, but if you just ignore the words and their ridiculous image, there are actually some pretty catchy dance club cuts here, like the infectious “Bottle Pop,” featuring Snoop Dogg, and “Whatcha Think About That,” featuring Missy Elliott (pcdmusic.com).
3/3 Time, Glory Winds (Oddball Rolling): Twenty-two year old Phoenix-born, now Los Angeles-based DIYer Patty Chung offers this eight-track EP of melodic, imaginative lo-fi gems with a mesmerizing atmospheric, cinematic quality, recorded in her bedroom studio and released on her own mail order indie label (myspace.com/glorywinds).
New Arrivals Vol. 3 (MPress): Benefiting the National Eating Disorders Association, this third installment of Rachael Sage’s MPress imprint’s charity compilation series exposes up and coming indie artists like the Hamiltons featuring A.K. Healy, Adrienne Pierce and Lelia Broussard, as well as better known names like Ember Swift and Swati (newarrivalscd.com).
