It’s Tuesday and we’re back with The Drop, our Soundbytes segment where we rate the week’s hottest pop releases. September is in full swing, and perhaps that’s why we’re experiencing a serious chill vibe on the music front. Pet Shop Boys team up with a new producer for their 11th album Elysium, while Dave Matthews Band returns to an old collaborator on Away From The World. The xx debut their second effort Coexist — but is it a sophomore slump for the Brit group? Find out as we preview these albums and let you know which is worth your hard-earned dollars above.
