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
It’s the new Kanye album. Big fucking deal. Rolling Stone predicts that the album is going to suck, Okay, I guess the writer doesn’t say that it’s going to suck, just that it’s not going to be the most important fucking record ever made in the history of record making this time, which is a disappointment.
Anyway, the whole world is all amazed by how many times Kanye changed the name of the album (it’s called The Life of Pablo now) and how secret it is and all of that shit. Me? Haven’t heard it, hope I never hear it. I’ll be just fine if I don’t hear, or hear about, Kanye West ever again. Nevertheless…

Flying Solo
Former Flyleaf vocalist Lacey Sturm unveils her debut solo venture,  Life Screams, her first release since quitting music a few years ago. According to Cryptic Rock “Sturm’s motivation was to show and scream the light on the end of the tunnel in spite of all hopelessness and rage on this planet that engrossed the music universe and to save music lovers from going to hell subsequently”. Wow, that’s a mouthful.

Indie Circle
The new Cass McCombs project, The Skiffle Players, features members of Beechwood Sparks and the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, among others. Skifflin’ is their debut album and it explores Americana and traditional music.

Australia’s The Jezabels return with Synthia, their junior effort.

And Portland’s Radiation City offer up their third release Synesthetica.

This is the part of the show where we say goodbye to those who’ve played their last solo. Rest in peace and rock on, brothers and sisters.
Dan Hicks, of Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, died from cancer.

French Canadian singer Gilles Brown.

My Recommendation
New Magrudergrind. Yep!

Next Week
Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from: Yoko Ono!!
