New Music Weekend: The Avalanches, Good Charlotte, Kenny Chesney, and More

Hey there music lover! You like new stuff? Great! You’ve stumbled into the perfect corner of the internet.  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 precious time. So strap on your headphones and let’s take a ride!

The Big News

2016 is turning out to be an important year, especially for long lost artists. Earlier this year lost soul Emitt Rhodes released his first record since the mid-1970s, and now Wildflower, the long awaited sophomore effort from Australia’s The Avalanches. I was college, dj’ing overnights for the local college radio station when Since I Left You, their instant classic debut was released. I was going out with a girl who also had an overnight shift but she wasn’t into it so I covered for her regularly and I spent a lot of time with You. I wasn’t alone in finding it one of the most mesmerizing records I’d ever heard. I know it’s probably not going to sell as much as the new Kenny Chesney album but considering the fact that this new album was never supposed to see the light of day I figured it too important to not lead with it.

Oh Yeah, This Too…

Yeah, here’s that new Kenny Chesney record.
