New CDs for the week of December 7, 2010...

New Album Releases: Feist, Duffy, Natasha Bedingfield, Tron Legacy

I thought last week’s pickings were slim.  At least there were some titles for all of you even if they didn’t really do much for me.  We’re all kind of hosed this week.

So, what shall we highlight?  If you’re my age, you remember how groundbreaking and cool the movie Tron looked.  This week we have the soundtrack to the reboot of that franchise. 

Welsh singer Duffy follows up her 2008 smash record with Endlessly.  She was selling big when Amy Winehouse and a tribe of other female retro R&B singers hit the scene at the same time.  Winehouse has self-destructed in a haze of addictions.  Duffy will be among the first to see if listeners are still wowed by the updated classic sounds.

Canadian singer Feist is one of a handful of artists whose fortunes skyrocketed through commercial tie-ins.  She had a song used in one of Apple’s iPod commercials and the constant exposure turned in to downloads at the iTunes Music Store.  Her latest is called the Reminder.

If you see something I’m missing, chat it up in the comments.  Here are this week’s New Album Releases:
