Tyler, The Creator has a new release "Woolly" that is due out on April 2.

It's Tuesday, which means it's time to stop streaming "Mirrors" on repeat and check out some of the brand new stuff that dropped today.

If you're into foul-mouthed, twentysomething rappers arguing with themselves and calling out One Direction, you should definitely give Tyler, The Creator's latest offering, Wolf, a shot.

If you're an indie snob and post-hipster rock afficianado, you'll love the latest concept album from Cold War Kids, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts (and you should stop not listening to Arcade Fire because they're so mainstream now. Neon Bible still rules). They're playing Union Transfer on the 12th.

Also, Rilo Kiley's new album dropped—but it's not available on Spotify—and The Band Perry released Pioneer for everyone who loves co-ed country bands like Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town and Gloriana and all of the other ones I'm too lazy to specifically mention. (Note: I actually kind of dig it.)

This week, I'm also listening to Family of the Year's Loma Vista on repeat after accidentally discovering some time last year when their "Hey Ma" played automatically after that I played Cam'ron's song of the same name. Don't ask. They're playing World Cafe Live on Wednesday.

You should probably give Caitlin Rose a try. Her latest, The Stand-In, sounds like She and Him covering a George Strait album. She'll be at Milkboy on Wednesday.

If you prefer music of the screamo persuasion, chances are you should go back and make sure you still have all of the "Calling All Cars" lyrics memorized because Senses Fail is at the Troc on Thursday.

Okay. That's it. You can go back to listening to "Mirrors" now.
