I should be arriving home today from vacation in Paris, France so I will be a little late getting to these releases, but there are a bunch I want to at least listen to first before I buy. All my choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you are interested in or if there is something I might have missed as that happens…a lot!! Enjoy and have a great weekend. I know I will be resting from this trip and I am sure suffering major jet lag.
- Rob Thomas – Chip Tooth Smile – (Atlantic Records): The former Matchbox 20 frontman is finally back with a new solo album after four years. I liked his early stuff and definitely early Matchbox 20. I am hoping he captures a little of that lost magic, but I don’t know yet as I haven’t listened to anything yet, not even the video posted below. I will try it out, he has earned that.
- Rodrigo y Gabriela – Mettavolution – (Rubyworks): This might actually be first up on the playlist. I love these two. Their instrumental, flamenco style music is at times breathtaking. High expectations as I have never been disappointed before. Give them a listen if you have heard them before…it is really cool.
- P!nk – Happy 2B Human – (RCA Records): It is P!nk, of course I am going to listen to this. She has been a powerhouse for a long time now and I love her voice and attitude. What more could you want. Now her concert tickets are ridiculously expensive so this will have to do.
- Rick Springfield – Orchestrating My Life – (August Day): I do love me some Rick Springfield, but this one scares me. Orchestrating your songs rarely goes well. If he just added some orchestration into already recorded songs this will suck big balls. But if he actually records it live with an orchestra, it could be a awesome. We will see.
No video sorry
- King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard – Fishing for Fishies – (Flightless Records): I don’t know why, but I like these guys. They are experimental, adventurous and utterly bizarre and I dig it. Their psychedelic rock is something to behold. Give them a try.
Maybe a few more that will get a listen when time permits…
