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

So I took a week off and what happens? Oh, nothing much, Radiohead busts out some new stuff, the Stone Roses reunite,  just some minor, inconsequential stuff, you know. Did you guys check out that new Stone Roses song? I know, pretty horrible, right? Well, I guess horrible might be the wrong word. How about “pedestrian” or “totally the least surprising surprise ever”. Anyway, If you haven’t heard it, here’s the new Stone Roses song that sounds like a Primal Scream outtake.

Alright, now that that’s out of the way let’s talk about the new stuff. The new Bob Dylan album, Fallen Angels, is The Master’s second foray into the Great American Songbook, following on the heels of 2015’s Shadows in the Night.

Classic Clunkers

Guitar hero Eric Clapton returns with his twenty third album and first album featuring new, original material in three years, though like all of his releases in the last ten years or I Still Do consists of a mix of covers and originals.

Tom Petty’s pre-Heartbreakers band, Mudcrutch, gears up to release their much delayed second album 2.

Solo Poppy Shit

Here’s a record I truly hope I never, ever hear a single note from – the new Ariana Grande record,  Dangerous Woman. It’s the annoying pop personality’s follow-up to her massive My Everything, another album I’ve never heard.

And the new Blake Shelton record, If I’m Honest, isn’t exactly something I’ve been holding my breath waiting to hear. It features collabs with The Oak Ridge Boys and Gwen Stefani and is Shelton’s first album in two years.

Richard Ashcroft, he of the mighty Verve, unveils These People, his first solo effort since 2010.

Metal Mania

 California rockers Saosin return with Along the Shadow, the band’s third record but first since the return of original vocalist Anthony Green.

RIP
This is the part where we say goodbye to those who’ve hit their last high note. Rock on and rest in peace, brothers and sisters.

Jazzman Buster Cooper was 87.

Singer Julius La Rosa.

Peter Behrens, drummer for Trio.

Finnish singer Riki Sorsa.

John Stabb of Government Issue.

John Berry of Even Worse and the Beastie Boys.

Kleenex/Liliput guitarist Malene Marder.

Singer and actress Candye Kane.

Pioneering electronic music artist Isao Tomita.

One of the best songwriters who ever lived, Guy Clark.

My Recommendation
Day of the Dead is a Grateful Dead tribute compilation curated by members of The National and featuring artists like Jenny Lewis, Real Estate, and Fucked Up.

Next Week!!

Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from: THE MONKEES!!!
