Hey there music lover! 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
You’re not going to believe this, but the big news this week is a new ELVIS PRESLEY record. See! I told you fuckers he wasn’t dead! Ha! Oh, wait, it’s an album of old songs, with The King’s original vocals dubbed over the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The Wall Street Journal says that “the goal of the project was to make Presley’s original vocal performance sound like a new studio recording”. So it’s not new, just newish. Hmmm.
The Addams Family
A pair of solo Adams’ releasing new stuff this week. Veteran Canadian rocker boy Bryan Adams unveils Get Up, his first album of original music since 2008. Adams told Reuters that the “rocking and retro sounding” slab o’ wax is “the album I wish I’d been able to make 25 years ago”, referencing his iconic debut.
The physical release of what has become the most talked about album of the year, 1989, alt-country crooner Ryan Adams’ song for song cover of Taylor Swift’s record of the same name, find physical form this week.

Paper Wheels, the new solo set from Phishy dude Trey Anastasio, is bound to put more cash in his pocket.
Holiday music that doesn’t suck? New Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, It’s a Holiday Soul Party is for you!
Rehumanizer, the first peep out of space rockers Maserati since 2012, sees the light of day this week.
Behold! The “quiet majestic beauty” of Silver Bullet, the new album by legendary New Zealand hipsters The Chills is upon us. It is the pioneering Dunedin based outfit’s first album in like 20 years.
Noise addicts Wolf Eyes unite with Jack White’s uber-cool Third Man Records to unleash I Am A Problem: Mind in Pieces. The dude from Slug Mag is not impressed: the record “this move signals little in the way of a change to Wolf Eyes’ raison d’etre or sound”.
And The Neighbourhood follow-up their debut with a strong sophomore effort, Wiped Out.
Here’s where we say goodbye to those who’ve strummed their final chord. Rest in peace and rock on brothers and sisters.
Bill Lee, founder and director of the Kansas Music Hall of Fame and a get down cool radio DJ, died suddenly at the age of 69. This is a man I have a great deal of respect for and his passing is a damn shame.
Cory Wells, vocalist for classic rockers Three Dog Night, died at the age of 74.
Frank Watkins, bassist for Obituary and Gorgoroth, died at the age of 47.
EL VY is some sort of weird concept band or something consisting of the dude from The National and the dude from Menomena. Featuring “lush melodies and at times raunchy lyrics”, according to Rolling Stone, it sounds like something I can get into.
Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from country legend Tim McGraw!!
