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

…and then one day you wake up and a band like Tegan and Sara are huge. And you realize that all of those people who say “Aww music sucks now, it was so much better back in the (insert sucky decade here)’s” are blathering idiots. Love You to Death, the Canadian twin duo’s eight release and first since their masterful 2013 release Heartthrob, “taps into newer, more effervescent realms of upbeat expression”, according to Spin.

The Master’s Returns

Legendary songwriter Paul Simon returns with his thirteenth record, Stranger to Stranger. It’s his first since 2011.

The Claypool Lennon Delirium is a mash-up of the talents of Sean Lennon and Les Claypool.

Other Stuff

Here’s something I really hope I never, ever hear.  Train playing Led Zepplin’s II. Eeegad!,that sounds horrible.

Indie Miscy
One of the darling’s of last years indie scene, the Spanish outfit Mourn, return with their sophomore effort Ha, Ha, He!

The Kills emerge from five years of hiding with Ash & Ice, the duo’s fifth release.

Prolific and popular Brooklyn guitarist Steve Gunn unveils his solo effort Eyes on the Lines.

Been looking forward to this new Ladyhawke record, Wild Things, all year. It is the New Zealander’s third release. It’s sugary and sweet and all about sobriety and shit like that.  Seemingly not my cup of tea, right? Exactly!


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.

Marshall Jones of the Ohio Players.

Brandon Ferrell of Municipal Waste.

Thomas Fekete of Surfer Blood.

Dave Swarbrick of Fairport Convention. Sucks that he died, but it does afford us the opportunity to play my all-time favorite song!

My Recommendation

Josh Winstead is the bassist for Metric. That’s all I need to know to be interested in his new solo record MMXX.

Next Week!!

Tune in next week, same new music time, same uiynew music channel, for new stuff from: Band of Horses!!!
