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

This is the new Lady Gaga. I haven’t heard it, probably won’t hear it, and do not have anything to say about it. I’m arguing with my wife about something really, really stupid so I’m really not in the mood for any Gaga-blah-blah so I’ll just quote this Guardian review of lead single “Perfect Illusion”: “the cracks are all you hear.”

Special Note

Assuming that this website is still here at the end of the year, I would like to extend the offer to readers to send their end of the year “Best Of” lists to me to publish here the week before my “Best of” comes out. Albums only, and only 10. I’ll publish ‘em, for realz.

Legendary Legends

Yer grandpa’s favorite mellow dude, David Crosby, returns with another interminable solo release, Lighthouse.

Canadian landmark and world treasure Leonard Cohen goes to the dark side with his fourteenth release, You Want it Darker.

Chrissy Hynde and the Pretenders are still here, which is such good news because there ain’t a bad Pretenders record or show. The new one, the band’s first in eight years, is called Alone.

Miscy Discy’s

New Korn.

The new Jimmy Eat World (which is, by the way, a band I have nothing but absolute respect for) is “the best record in 12 years from one of the finest bands on the planet”, according to a very biased review from Modern Vinyl.

There are three unreleased Bowie songs on this soundtrack.


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.

German singer-songwriter Werner Lammerhirt.

Sonny Sanders of The Satintones.

Bored Nothing.

Songwriter Don Ciccone.

My Recommendations

You know, this week I think I’ll recommend some more of that really shitty new David Crosby record… Ha ha. How about this from Tanya Tagac. It’s been streaming on NPR all week and I dig it.

Next Week!!

Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from HELMET!!!!!!!
