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

The Sound Board Reviews has this to say of the new Green Day record, Revolution Radio: “If you’re going into this [album] with the lowered standards that late period Green Day albums demand, it’s good enough.” Not exactly high praise for one of the biggest albums of the year from a band that no one has heard from since 2012.

Solo Suckers

The lovely Norah Jones hasn’t been heard from since her acclaimed 2013 effort Foreverly, recorded with, coincidentally enough, Billie Joe from Green Day. Her new record, Day Breaks, has a good amount of buzz behind it.

Glen Phillips used to lead Toad the Wet Sprocket. Now he adds another entry  into his growing solo catalog with Swallowed by the New.

Rick Astley’s 50 gets a release in the states this week.

Everything Else

More Phish.

Punk legends NOFX offer their First Ditch Effort, the band’s first since 2012.

Warped Tour heroes Sum 41 are back with 13 Voices, the pop punk outfit’s first in five years.

Swedish metal masters Meshuggah give us Violent Sleep with No Reason, their eighth.


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.

Guitarist Michael Casswell.

Reggae pioneer Nora Dean.

LIttle Royal of Little Royal and the Swingmasters.

Mike Taylor of Quartz.

Rockabilly dude Joe Clay.

Kashif Saleem of BT Express.

My Recommendation

One of the most interesting bands in existence, Sweden’s Goat, return with the follow-up to the masterful mix of all sorts of stuff, Commune, with Requiem.

Next Week!!

Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from Kings of Leon!
