Happy Friday and May the 4th Be With You!! Yes, I went there on Star Wars Day!! There aren’t a ton of releases but a few I am excited about. I will highlight those in Blue as usual. Go through and let me know what you like or what I might have missed. I hope you enjoy and have a great weekend.
- Shinedown – Attention Attention – (Atlantic Recording): The main one I want to hear is the new Shinedown album. The song “Devil” was freaking awesome and I love the whole idea of loose concept album. It isn’t a full on concept album, but the songs will take you on a journey of a person who is starting in a very dark, ominous place and take you all the way through to the other side where this person is done battling his mind and his issues and coming out a changed person. Check out “Devil” and then get this album.
- Mat Kearney – CRAZYTALK – (Tomorrow Music): Mat Kearney is one of the finer singer/songwriters out there and he never gets enough credit. He has some great pop sensibilities, but takes risk and tries new things. I don’t like to listen to his albums ahead of time, I like to be surprised and I hope this will bring many.
- Galactic Empire – Episode II – (Rise Records): And for Star Wars Day there is nothing better than Galactic Empire. The Star War Heavy Metal Band brings a new batch of Space Metal Songs. I am going to post two songs. The first one is a track from the new album. The second is an old track but an actual music video so you can see what you are in for and not just hear it. Wow!!

- Lincoln Brewster – God of the Impossible – (Integrity Music)
- Joey Alexander – Eclipse – (Motema Music)
- Belly – Dove – (Belly Touring)
