Friday New Releases – June 15th

Are things heating up for you?  Well, the new releases are heating up!  Okay, maybe they are lukewarm; however, there are a few worth checking out and mine will be in Blue.  Let me what you are looking forward to hearing.  There are live albums, Blues, Pop, Rock and electronica…something for everyone. If you like 90’s artists, there a several back this week that might be worth at least a stream or two.  Have a great weekend!!

  • 61PHqjoSN2L._AC_US436_QL65_  The Darkness – Live at Hammersmith – (Canary Dwarf Ltd):  The 80’s Hair Metal throwback band are back with a live album and wasn’t that what we were waiting to hear! This might be first up on the stereo today for me.  These guys would have been huge in the 80’s!!  Turn it up because I Believe In a Thing Called “Live”…see what I did there!!  Here is the original video as I didn’t see a live one for this release.

  • 51jjidBu5YL._SS500  Mike Shinoda – Post Traumatic – (Warner Bros):  The co-lead singer of Linkin Park is set for his first solo release and his first music since Chester Bennington’s passing.  As a fan of Linkin Park this is a no-brainer.  I am really interested to see where he takes it and how he responds to Chester’s death.  It should be a great release.

  • 51+Wx-EJgRL._AC_US436_QL65_  Christina Aguilera – Liberation – (RCA Records):  I was never a massive Christina fan, but there is no denying the woman has some vocal chops.  I am interested to see what a more mature Christina has to bring to the table.  I will give it a listen, she has earned that.

Now here are a couple 90’s artists making a comeback…yes, I will stream these!

  • 61VTRwJY76L._AC_US436_QL65_  Gin Blossoms – Mixed Reality – (Cleopatra Records)
  • 91gUUqA7BZL._AC_UL115_  The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – While We’re At It – (Big Rig Records)

And the rest…

  • 61mZy1tlHhL._AC_UL115_  The Gaslight Anthem – The ’59 Sounds Sessions – (SideOne Dummy Records)
  • 61Fh3evDXNL._SS500  Lizzy Borden – My Midnight Things – (Metal Blade Records)
  • 91mU8eLRHqL._AC_UL115_.jpg  Buddy Guy – The Blues Is Alive and Well – (RCA)
  • 51uFejon6QL._SY300_QL70_  Mayday Parade – Sunnyland – (Rise Records)

    1. I am so sorry HMO, but it was on purpose as I was afraid I might not spell it correctly!!

      As far as the Darkness, I haven’t listened to them in awhile so the Live able was interesting. I listened to it on the way to work this morning and it was pretty good.


  1. That photo of Christian is honestly the most beautiful I have ever seen.

    The Darkness piss me off because they wouldn’t answer my numerous questions about bonus tracks! Looks like I have to do my own research.

          1. That’s the one, aye. I’m more interested in it due to it being Joseph Arthur (if you’re not familiar with him, he has a catalogue worth delving into). I also learned that M. Ward has a new one out, too (though I think that was released last week… but still!)
