Welcome to May and a very dismal week of releases…at least for me. There isn’t much I am interested in this week which will hopefully help me catch up on what I missed while on vacation. There is one I am interest in and another I might check out, but that is all. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what interests you or if I missed anything. Or just stop by and say hi! Whatever floats your boat. Have a great weekend!!!
- Joy Williams – Front Porch – (Sensibility Records): Is she the better half of the band The Civil Wars that were together from about 2009-2014? I don’t know. I guess that depends if you liked her voice or John Paul White’s voice better. I love her voice and enjoyed her first solo album after the breakup, so I am looking forward to hear what new she has to offer. The band was more American folk and I can you classify her that still. Whatever you want to definite it, it is some great songwriting.
- New Found Glory – From the Screen to Your Stereo 3 – (Hopeless Records): NFG has been hit or miss over the years. I am not sure I will enjoy this at it their 3rd covers album, but you never know what you will get so I might give it a shot. Just glad to see a band from the 90’s still going at it as it seems a lot of bands from that decade aren’t around anymore.
