Happy day music maniacs! Like new stuff? Great! You’ve come to the right place. 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 time. Thanks for stopping by!

The Big News!
Welcome back kiddos! Another week loaded with excitement! Got a little sumthin’ for everybody this week, from hippy dippy’s to old skool dancers to indie dingies to good old classic rockers. First up? A double dose of super rock! Dodge and Burn, the latest from Jack White side project super group The Dead Weather is a smasher The Journal Sentinel says this one is “grimier” than White’s usual stuff, which sounds good to me!

And the junior effort from alt-rockers Silversun Pickups finally arrives.

Legendary Legends
Your dad’s idol, Eagles front man Don Henley, unveils his first solo record in fifteen years, Cass County. It’s a country record that he’s reportedly been working on forever. Says North Country Public Radio: “[F]or the most part, Henley plays to his traditional ballad-singing strengths, albeit with a pinch more dobro and mandolin adding a sense of Southwestern regionalism to the mix.” More dobro, bro. Always a good thing.

Featuring guest appearances by such luminaries as the great Iggy Pop and the eh, he’ll do Brandon Flowers, the new New Order album, Music Complete, “mostly…comprises a series of scuttling bleepscapes lent individual character by unorthodox instrumental detail”, according to The Independent.

Indie-cellaneous
Jr Jr, formerly known as Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, offer up their latest opus for hipsters, a self-titled rock fest that everyone’s probably going to love.

Synthy Scots Chvrches return with the, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel, “alarming, demanding and almost unbearably boisterous” Every Open Eye.

Sexwitch is the side project of Bat For Lashes babe Natasha Khan, in collaboration with an English band called Toy. It’s made up of covers of strange psyched out folk songs from around the world. And it’s goddamn mesmerizing.

Canadian indie masters The Dears return with their sixth release Times Infinity Volume 1, their first in four years.

Solo Efforts

The lovely Peaches will unveil her latest opus, RUB, this week. Haven’t heard from in a while (it’s her first release since 2009) so I’m interested in this one.

Uber prolific indie dude Kurt Vile returns with his sixth solo set, B’lieve I’m Goin Down.

Hippy Dippy’s
The latest from festival faves Widespread Panic, Street Dogs, emerges from the fog this week.

RIP
Here’s the part where we pay tribute to those that have danced their way off this mortal coil in the last week.

Bolt Thrower drummer Martin Kearns died at the age of 38.

Guy Richrath, guitarist for REO Speedwagon, passed at the age of 65.

My Recommendation
I have to say, that new Bat For Lashes Sexwitch project, really has me interested!

Next Week
Come back next week, y’all, cuz we got some new stuff from Janet Jackson!
