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
Okay, so it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone who has ever read this column that I did not watch Beyonce’s Lemonade. My knowledge of the phenomenon is limited to: A. the fact that it was on television, and B: the fact that other people watched it. That’s all. Predictably, people were pissed off by it.IA bunch of people, I guess, even other writers I respect greatly, were bitching about it on Facebook. Which is when I stopped paying attention.
So I know everyone’s already heard it t but it comes out in physical format this week.
Country icon Mary Chapin Carpenter’s fourteenth record, The Things that We are Made Of, steps into the spotlight.
As does Detour, a record of country coves by the incomparable Cyndi Lauper. Noise11: “This is not an album that sees Cyndi trying to retread old ground – it is simply an extension of her diverse artistry that has seen her excel across an array of genres.” Here, here. Love everything Ms Lauper has done.
Death Grips, the MOST IMPORTANT BAND OF ALL TIME, are back with the MOST IMPORTANT RECORD OF ALL TIME: Bottomless Pit. This article sums up how I feel about it. “I don’t trust that any of this will be on the record — or even that there will be a record, even with an official release date now.” Can’t wait to hear it, will believe it when I see it. Definite album of the year contender.
A new Goo-Goo Dolls album? Really? Is there a Nicholas Cage movie coming out that I hadn’t heard about? Anyway, Boxes is the band’s eleventh and first since 2013. This video is horrible.
For some reason Pitbull is featured on a track on the new Keith Urban record, Ripcord, the New Zealander’s ninth record. I really don’t know what to say except, well, I’m sorry.
This is the part where we say goodbye to those who’ve played their last solo. Rock on and rest in peace, brothers and sisters.
Guitarist Doug Raney.
Harrison Callaway of the Muscle Shoals Horns.
According to their website Royal Tusk was “forged from rock and roll soul, blue collar charm, and a renegade attitude” and their latest DealBreaker sounds interesting.
Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from: Nothing!! I’m taking a week off next week! Hopefully I’ll be back in two weeks. Enjoy the silence everyone!
