Hey there music lover! You like new stuff? Great! You’ve stumbled into the perfect corner of the internet.

So strap on your headphones and let’s take a ride!
The Big News
Oh, hey, it’s the new Kings of Leon record. Yeah, that’s, uh, great and stuff. Lemme guess, this one is a lot like their earlier stuff, right? It’s nothing like the arena frat fucktard “Sex is on Fire” stuff, right. Uhu huh. Wait, no? You mean this album is a return to the arena rock bullshit? Well, according to the Irish Examiner, yes. The album is called, ugh, WALLS and it has an incredibly stupid meaning, and is “lowest denominator material – engineered to appeal tot he widest possible demographic.”

Oooh…. Oohh… oooh…. New Dillinger Escape Plan.
Ehh, they’re not metal but close enough. Japan’s legendary Mono return with another instrumental classic Requiem from Hell.

Woptober is the second release from rapper Gucci Mane this year.
A new Conner Oberst solo record, Ruminations. Has some bright spots, some low spots, not to shabby, methinks.

This is the part where we say goodbye to those who’ve hit their last high note. Rock on and rest in peace, brothers and sisters.
