Friday New Releases – August 31st

The last Friday of August and we go out with a little bang.  Not a huge bang.  September is going to be huge so get ready for the ton of new releases coming your way.  There are a handful I am interested in this week and those will be highlighted in Blue as usual.  Let me know what you want to hear or you are going to get.  Leave me a comment because I always miss some good releases.  I hope you have a great weekend and Happy Listening!!!

  • download-3  The Veer Union – Decade II: Rock & Acoustic – (Rock Shop Entertainment):  This is a greatest hits package with a heavy side and a softer, acoustic side.  I have enjoyed Crispin Earl’s vocals (and only original member) so I will give this one spin.  I was hoping for new music, but this will do for now.  I will admit, I do like the cover of “Numb” by Linkin Park.  That might be worth it all by itself.

  • 814FHRdGWaL._SX522_  Alice Cooper – A Paranormal Evening at the Olympia Paris (Live) – (earMusic):  I am hoping to see Alice here in Charlotte in October and this will be a great way to prep for his live show.  Alice’s last studio album ‘Paranormal” was absolutely FANTASTIC!!  His band is also awesome and live, it is one helluva a show.  Can’t wait!!

  • 51UNSw8aTvL._SS500  Steve ‘n’ Seagulls – Grainsville – (Steve ‘n’ Seagulls / Universal):  Ok, Steve ‘n’ Seagulls is a novelty act that I just love.  The turn Rock & Metal songs into Bluegrass music and no one does it better.  Literally, there is no one else that does this.  So, put on your overalls and get ready for a hoedown Steve ‘n’ Seagull style!!!  This is digital only this week.  CD will be out in a couple weeks.

  • 51WKEyoO5qL._SS500  Passenger – Runaway – (Black Crow Records)
  • 81R8G7WbQVL._SX522_  Iron & Wine – Weed Garden – (Sub Pop Records)
  • 51UXMgjgA+L._AC_US436_QL65_  Alkaline Trio – Is this Thing Cursed? – (Epitaph)
  • 81Zhhe6QUEL._SX522_  The Band – Music From Big Pink (50th Anniversary) – (Capitol Records)
  • 51IoW957vvL._SS500  Amos Lee – My New Moon – (Dualtone Music Group)
  • 519ZbEtb0SL._AC_US436_QL65_  Meghan Trainor – Treat Myself – (Epic Records)

  1. I’ll likely check out the Cooper and Iron & Wine releases, but that’s it. I couldn’t even tell you if there’s anything I’m particularly interested in released today!

      1. I did check the merchandise table for this release as I thought maybe they would sneak it out but nope.
        They did have signed copies of SuperDuper Alice Cooper Blu rays for 60 bucks…
        Got this live album on the iPod already to go
