Happy Tuesday, music fans. There is a lot of new music out this week, with probably the most noteworthy being the self-titled debut album from Jungle and the latest from "Weird Al" Yankovic. I first experienced U.K. duo Jungle—who expand into a seven-piece live—at the Hype Hotel at SXSW earlier this year. I went to the show totally unfamiliar with their music, and was blown away. Their music is built around '60s R&B and Motown but also sounds really fresh; trust me, you need to jump on the Jungle train if you haven't yet. Check out the video for "Busy Earnin'" below. 

Comedy-rock parodist Weird Al can always be counted on to skewer pop culture with glee and wit, and on his 14th album, Mandatory Fun, no one—from Robin Thicke to Pharrell—is safe. Check out the video for "Tacky" below. 

There's also new albums from Morrissey and San Francisco rock outfit The Mother Hips, as well as a new single from singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle, from his upcoming album Single Mothers.
