    • Amon Tobin
    • The genius is in the beats. Amon Tobin creates fantastic, groovy beats behind beats. "Supermodified" rolls through your expectations of breakbeat music, and turns them up a bit. It's a mellow album, p

    • Ray LaMontagne
    • At first, Ray LaMontagne might strike you as just another breathy-voiced knockoff of folk/rock guitarists like John Mayer and Jack Johnson. But he's actually got a better voice than either, he tell

    • Rush
    • We all know it, right? Well, ya just gotta have it. 2112 finally showed Rush out on their own, doing their own thing, and doing it well, IMHO.

    • Beck
    • Beck is the modern master of the groove, and Guero is merely the latest example of this. From the opening power chords of "E-Pro," to the Pac-Man cuteness of "Girl," to the dirge-like lullab

Zune HD to Hit Stores on September 15

Microsoft's iPod touch competitor, the Zune HD, is set to hit store shelves on September 15, and is available for pre-order now. Like the iPod touch, the Zune HD includes a touch screen interface and comes in 16GB and 32GB capacities.

Zune HD was unveiled in May, and looks to be positioned to go head to head with Apple's iPod touch. The new Zune will include a 3.3-inch OLED display with 420x272 resolution, an HD radio receiver, 720p HD video playback via a custom dock, and a built-in touch-based Web browser --presumably a modified version of Internet Explorer.

Apple hasn't announced new iPod touch models yet, but the company typically rolls out its media player updates in the September time frame, which might be an indicator that Microsoft is hoping on capitalizing on iPod owners that have been planning on replacing their old units next month.

Microsoft's Zune lineup hasn't, however, had much luck at overtaking Apple's iPod. Unless the Zune HD dramatically outperforms the iPod touch, Microsoft will likely have trouble yet again at stealing some of Apple's media player market share.
