Happy Monday music maniacs! Like new stuff? Great! You’ve come to the right place. Each week all sorts of audiolicious goodies are unleashed onto the masses and this is where they come to be judged. I’ll tell ya what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s a waste of your time. Thanks for stopping by!
The Big News!
It’s metal week! Such a wonderful week! Two big metal releases to talk about. First up – the ninth release from veteran metal masters Fear Factory, Genexus. Blabbermouth says this record “embraces more of Fear Factory’s electronic and industrial foundations than they have in some time”.
San Diego deathgrind master blasters Cattle Decapitation unleash their seventh masterpiece The Anthropocene Extinction to the hails of the Angry Metal Guy, who calls Extinction ” a near-flawless album”. Considering their track record of absolutely destroying shit, he’s probably right.
The Other Big News
Ok, so country star Luke Bryan is releasing his fifth record, Kill the Lights, this week. I’m sure it will outsell both the FF and Cat-Decap records combined but whatever, fuck this guy. He used Tinder to debut the latest track from the record. Of course he did.
Really Cool Solo Stuff…
Indie darling and author of albums that all the kool kids love, Mac Demarco, returns with his third solo set, Another One. Every critic in the world, except me (of course), listed his last effort, (2014’s Salad Days) on their end of year best of lists, and everyone’s really excited about this eight song release.
Punky Brit Frank Turner returns with a record that is “quite bereft of inspiration” according to his homeboys at The Independent. That might be harsh, I’ve always liked Turner’s stuff. Also, CM PUNK! CM PUNK! CM PUNK! CM PUNK!
…And a Notable Duo
Dope rappers The Alchemist and Oh No team up again as Gangrene for You Disgust Me. Also, ACTION BRONSON! ACTION BRONSON! ACTION BRONSON!
Here’s where we say goodbye. These are those that duck walked off this mortal coil in the last week or two. Slow week for the reaper this week.
It’s a downright shame and injustice that apparently the only tribute to professional wrestling great “Rowdy” Roddy Piper on Overmental is going to come right here, on a stupid little music column that no one reads. The wrestler died this week at the age of 61.
Country siren Lynn Anderson passed this week at the age of 67. My wife loves this song.
Guitarist Buddy Emmons ain’t here no more unfortunately. He was 78.
Consequence of Sound says that this is the album that we’ve been waiting for from Chelsea Wolfe: “Wolfe finally goes knee-deep into that dark terrain, embracing metal and overpowering drones that, unsurprisingly, click right into place.”
Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from Grace Potter! Oh, she looks like this now. Huh.
