Hey there music lover! 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

Boy band battle royale!! Grr! On one side we have the Canadian king of pop, Justin Freakin’ Bieber, whose new album, Purpose, his fourth overall and first since 2012, features collab’s with the likes of Srillex (who produced the single “Sorry”) and Ariana Grande, who provided vocals for an alternate version of “What Do You Mean?”.

And in the red corner we have English hunksa’ hunksa’ burnin’ love, One Direction, who unveil their fifth release, Made in the AM this week.

Solo Suckers

The inimitable CeeLo, of CeeLo Green fame, returns with the follow-up to his smash 2010 hit The Ladykiller. There was a Christmas album in between in 201, but I don’t think it counts.

Church in These Streets is the latest by Jeezy, his second release in as many years, and features contributions from Janelle Monae.

Wicked Gamer Chris Isaak’s first record since 2011, First Comes the Night, sees the light of day this week.


My favorite Chris Isaak song!!

Legendary Legends

British edition! A pair of blokes releasing what essentially amount to comeback records.

Jeff Lynn’s reunited version of ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) hasn’t released a lick of new music since 2001, and before that 1986. So it’s good to see these old farts still kicking in 2015. Their latest, Alone in the Universe is worth a listen.

And good old Wreckless Eric, he of “Whole Wide World” fame, ain’t backin’ down either. AmERICa, will hit shores on the 13th.


This is where we say goodbye to those who’ve played their last solo. Rest in peace and rock on brothers and sisters.

Dickie Hammond, guitarist for one of my favorite bands of all time Leatherface, died at the age of 50. Hammond is my favorite guitarist of all time, and Leatherface’s classic Mush is without question my fifth favorite album ever. This sucks.

Country legend Tommy Overstreet passed at the age of 78.

Our thoughts go out to the victims of the horrific Colectiv nightclub fire in Romania over the last weekend.

The band Goodbye to Gravity lost two members in the tragedy.

My Recommendation

I’m a huge fan of the Kansas City Royals and I’ve been waiting thirty years to say this GO ROYALS! WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!!

But if you’re not into vintage baseball ads, here’s the new MuteMath.

Next Week

Tune in next week, same new music time, same new music channel, for new stuff from… get ready… wait for it… wait for it… the new…
