Summer's in full swing, and the list of August 2013 new music releases offers a seasonally appropriate mix of raging daytime rock records and evening cool-out albums.

There's something for everyone, as fans of noisy shoegaze (Medicine), skuzzball L.A. rawk (the Icarus Line), chilled-out synth-pop (Washed Out) and raucous garage (Ty Segall) will find in the list of August 2013 new music releases plenty to like. Next month also sees the return of peppy Scottish indie-pop greats Franz Ferdinand and Atlanta hip-hop faves Goodie Mob, featuring Cee Lo Green.

The dog days of summer can be a real drag, but with these and other August 2013 new music releases coming down the pike, there's reason to wipe the sweat from your brow, put on a brave face and soldier on. As temps climb into the triple digits, our advice is to crank the AC to a level where it keeps you cool put doesn't overpower your stereo and blast some of the new August albums listed below.
