Friday New Releases – June 24th

Thank goodness it is Friday.  What a week.  Work has been crazy so I can’t wait to listen to some new music.  Not much this week I am excited about, but there are a few I want to hear (and they are in blue).

  • 61n0bf2bvYL._AC_US160_  The Avett Brothers – True Sadness – (Republic) – Not familiar with them, but I heard the new song “Ain’t No Man” and thought it was great.  Now I want to listen to the whole thing.
  • 51SwkI3oI5L._AC_US160_  Dorothy – ROCKISDEAD – (Roc Nation) – Another band I am not familiar with but the first single is awesome and peaked my interest.  This might be my drive into work album and I will save the Avett Brothers for the drive home.

  • 61DlvaEJmzL._AC_US160_  Steve Vai – Modern Primitive / Passion and Warfare 25th Anniversary Edition – (Legacy).  Passion & Warfare was an incredible album and I can’t believe it has been 25 years.  I can’t wait to revisit the songs. And a bonus disc added called Modern Primitive with songs written between 1984-1990 and unreleased.  Steve is such an amazing guitarist and hit solo work is so creative and unbelievably amazing.  Check it out.  Here is a video for one of the new songs.
  • 519sZTyRxTL._AC_US160_  The Dirty Clergy – Rattlesnake – (Happy Daze Records) – I got the pleasure of getting an early release and I am digging this album.  I need to listen to it a few more times before I do a piece on it for the site.  I would have done it for the day of release, but ran out of time. I hate it when my real job gets in the way of my music listening time.  Go check it out.  The video posted is their lead single.  I like its rawness.  Update – Album comes out July 1st.  They released their new single “Decades” today – my mistake.
  • 41ua5A-wxPL._AC_US160_  Neil Young & Promise of the Real – Earth (2CD) – (Reprise)
  • 513r1kCJldL._AC_US160_  Whitechapel – Mark of the Blade – (Metal Blade)
  • 41SKGXX1-DL._AC_US160_  Broods – Conscious – (Capitol)
  • 61c2nD3SqJL._AC_US160_  Rich Robinson – Flux – (Eagle Records)
  • 61OWgqTN8kL._AC_US160_  Foghat – Under the Influence – (Foghat Records)
  • 61ef4Eu1dcL._AC_US160_  Whitford / St. Holmes – Reunion – (Mailboat Records)
  • 51cx94wFGUL._AC_US160_  Rick Astley – 50 – (BMG)
  • 61+AwHF+jfL._AC_US160_  The Rippingtons – True Stories – (Entertainment One Music)

  1. The Vai is a must for me. I recently reviewed the original Passion and Warfare. A remarkable album! It was my first instrumental CD. Rich Robinson and Whitford/St. Holmes are the other two on my radar, but Vai is a must buy. If I see it today I’ll buy it.

      1. I just missed on Satriani as my tastes “matured”. I bought Flying in a Blue Dream of his first instead of Surfing, so that doesn’t really count as an instrumental album. Love the Satch today of course!
