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!
Not much happening this week, so the new Titus Andronicus record gets the nod, and for good reason. It’s some sort of epic punk rock opera called The Most Lamentable Tragedy. I’ve never been disappointed by TA and Consequence of Sound calls it “the band’s loudest, longest, and (somehow) leanest record yet”, so I’m hella excited about this one.
Momentary Masters, the third solo effort from Stroke’s guitarist Albert Hammond Jr, is “his most satisfying, cohesive record yet, and, in many ways, his most personal”, according to this very helpful review from NME.
Really, really great Canadian singer songwriter that you should definitely right now be a huge fan of, Daniel Romano, unveils his latest greatest release If I’ve Only One Time Askin’.
The new Joss Stone record, Water for Your Soul, her first album of original material in four years, has a reggae influence.The English singer worked with Damien Marley on the record and the results are, hmm, I don’t know. I’ve only heard a little. But this reviewer from Renowned for Sound loved it, awarding the record five out of five stars and saying: “Water For Your Soul retains your attention from beginning to end with its multiple genre influence and inspiring/relatable lyrics. You’ll be stressing less and living more, especially if you keep this album on repeat for a few weeks, which fans of Stone will do without a doubt.”
Another British siren, Lianne la Havas, offes up her sophomore effort, Blood, this week. Lots of people are excited for this record, so it’s a bit of a bad sign that The Independent calls the record “accoplished but timid”.
Here’s where we say goodbye. These are those that duck walked off this mortal coil in the last week or two. It’s along list this week.
Norbert Schwefel, of Schwefel, died this week.
Pianist Eddie Harden, of the Spencer Davis Group, died at the age of 66..
Don Joyce, of Negativeland, died at the age of 71.
Country singer Daron Norwood passed at the age of 49.
Mitch Alotta, of Rotary Connection, 71.
After the Burial guitarist Justin Lowe was found dead at the age of 32.
Songwriter Wayne Carson passed as well.
Dieter Moebius of Cluster and several other experimental projects died at the age of 71.
Ok, I’ll bite. The new Teenage Time Killers, a supergroup featuring Dave Grohl and a million other rock and roll dudes from bands like Slipknot, Corrosion of Conformity, Sun O)))), Dead Kennedy’s, and others is worth my time.
Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from Luke Bryan and Fear Factory!!
