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!
A quick one again this week – I’m on my way out of town as soon as I hit “post story”. Too bad too, cuz this is a pretty exciting week, with lot’s of potentially great new records dropping. Let’s kick things off with the new one from Slayer. Repentless is the metal masters’ eleventh release and first since the death of guitarist Jeff Hanneman.

Solo Stuffs
A ton of new stuff from notable solo artists like Ben Folds, whose latest record, So There,  is a chamber pop record.

Craig Finn, he of The Hold Steady, should be unveiling his latest solo effort, Faith in the Future, this week. It is his second solo record, if I’m not mistaken.

Sultry songstress Jewel’s new record, Picking Up the Pieces, will be arriving.

The Story of Sonny Boy Slim, the new one from blues dude Gary Clark Jr is supposed to be a real scorcher.

Indie Mania
New Mexican indie stormers Beirut unleash their fifth record No No No this week.

And garage rockers Shannon and the Clams unleash their fourth effort Gone By The Dawn.

All Star Cast
The Hollywood Vampires are Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry, as well as a cast of special guests. Nice idea, a bunch of rich guys getting together to make a rock and roll record. Can’t wait.

Oh, no, that’s not the Hollywood Vampires, sorry.

My Recommendation
Minnesota based minimal rockers Low, one of my all time favorite bands, unveil their eleventh record, Ones and Sixes, this week. I never miss a Low record.

Next Week
No bullshit here, do not miss this column next week. I know I owe you guys a proper, non-hungover post and next week will be it. It’s huge, a bunch of great shit being released. Example? New David Gilmour, Duran Duran, Lucero, just to name a few. Also, the new Lana del Rey.
