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
Oh yeah, the moment we’ve all been waiting for, the new Selena Gomez record is here! Or is it the rising starlet’s first record? I don’t know, don’t really care either. Is she a movie star or is she a pop singer? Perhaps a little bit of both but not much of either? Who cares? Popcrush says that this record “promises to be an introspective, revelatory look into Selena’s life as it stands now”. Again, who cares?
Oh, and there’s a new Toby Keith record.
Under the Gun hints that the new Coheed and Cambria record, The Color Before the Sun, the New York prog-metal outfit’s eighth record and first since is “classic Coheed mixed with pop rejuvenation”. It’s their first album that isn’t a concept album, which could be either a good or bad thing.
A pair of live albums from a pair of my favorite artists. Johnny Marr offers up Adrenaline Baby, recorded during his Playland tour supporting his debut solo effort of the same name.
And Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes bide their time with Live in No Particular Order: 2009-2014.
Detroit’s Protomartyr comes down from the cross to unveil their third effort, The Agent Intellect.
Canadian singer-songwriter City and Colour return with the “somewhat grim but also somewhat gorgeous” If I Should Go Before You.
Again, there’s been a ton of shitkicking, awesome records that have been released in the last couple of weeks, so it’s hard to pick something special for rec’s right now. But I can’t resist revving up Incidental Hum, the latest solo effort from Glen Mercer, founder of legendary New Jersey based proto-indie outfit The Feelies. It’s an instrumental piece and Mercer talks extensively about the record in a great interview here at Howling Wuelf. Very excited to hear this. Unfortunately couldn’t find a new track, so here’s an old one.
If you don’t know The Feelies here’s a lil taste!
Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel for new stuff from Demi Lovato!
