A few of my favorite new releases this week, including the latest from Fanfarlo, the Kid Cudi and Dot da Genius side-project/experiment WZRD, and The Cranberries’ first studio album in 10 (long) years .  As always, you’ll definitely want to check out the much more comprehensive list of this week’s releases over at Largehearted Boy.  Enjoy.

(31) Days of Good: Day 17

The Weeknd was another one of this years most blogged about artists with the two mixtapes released in 2011. The first House of Balloons is one of my personal favorites. It is one of the few records that I can listen to start to finish.

Another artist who made a name for himself in the mixtape scene was the resident crooner for the Odd Future (OFWKTA) crew, Frank Ocean. Ocean exploded this last year, most notably with two features on Jay-Z and Kanye’s Watch the Throne record.

If those first two tracks weren’t lively enough for you, this should do the trick.  It’s off the latest LP from the alt-hip hop duo, The Knux, and features vocals from some guy named Kid Cudi…maybe you’ve heard of him?
