Friday New Releases – June 8th

I don’t have a long list of releases, but there are some I have been waiting on for awhile like Chevelle and Switchfoot.  Plus a few more that I can’t wait to hear which are all listed in Blue.

  • 51N-+Um45UL._AC_US160_  Chevelle – The North Corridor – (Epic):  It has been 2 years since their last release, so I am excited for some new music from these guys.  The songs I have heard so far, have been great.  I hope the rest of the album is as well.

  • 61qBCT7pLcL._AC_US160_  Switchfoot – When the Light Shines Through – (Vanguard):  Quite different from Chevelle, but just as good.  I have enjoyed these guys since ‘The Beautiful Letdown’ in 2003.  Their last album ‘Fading West’ was great and went along with a documentary on the band that I saw on Netflix.  Always great things from this band.
  • 41BKsYGJUbL._AC_US160_  Nonpoint – The Poison Red – (Spinefarm):  I have never been a superfan, but do enjoy when they release a new album.  There are always a handful of songs that I like and now have a great collection of songs from them.  I hoping that tradition will continue and based on “Generation Idiot” it looks like it will.
  • 61YoHy9L1dL._AC_US160_  Heart – Beautiful Broken – (Concord Records):  I haven’t enjoyed their last couple releases, but this one looks promising based on the first single “Beautiful Broken” which includes James Hetfield from Metallica.  Plus, it is Heart.  I will always give them the benefit of the doubt and listen.
  • imgres  Biffy Clyro – Ellipsis – (14th Floor Records):  A great band out of Scotland.  I wasn’t real familiar with them prior to their album “Opposites” and then it was only because of someone I know that worked on the album.  They don’t get much airplay that I have heard.  Their new song “Animal Style” sounds great.
  • 616PROsmVdL._AC_US160_-1  Anderson/Stolt – Invention of Knowledge – (Inside Out Music)
  • 515RWn4unEL._AC_US160_  Will Downing – Black Pearls – (Shanachie)
  • 51s9Rh1SJNL._AC_US160_  The Avalanches – Wildflower – (Astralwerks)
  • 51vcLs8abHL._AC_US160_  Schoolboy Q – Blank Face – (Interscope)

  1. I really like the Switchfoot track “Float.” A lighter sound for them, kinda like OneRepublic. Was not familiar with Nonpoint, but “Generation Idiot” is a real head-banger. I discovered Biffy Clyro on a recent ‘Later…With Jools Holland’ show, and they’re awesome in live performances. There’s just too much great music available today, which is a good thing!
