Friday New Releases – May 31st

Welcome to the last Friday of May!!  Let the Summer heat and fun begin!!  School is almost out for the kids, but busy times ahead for me.  Let’s end the month with some new releases.  I have a few I am interested in hearing and they are highlighted in Blue.  There is a handful of releases this week so let me know what you are interested in or if I missed something that needs a shout out!  I hope there is something for you.  Enjoy and have a great weekend!!

  • 819tYFEUphL._SS500_  Kenny Wayne Shepherd – The Traveler – (Concord Music Group):  First up for me is KWS and that awesome blues guitar.  Kenny has been around awhile now and his last release was stellar so expect more of the same with this. It is funny how his Blues actually makes me feel good.  Is that the way it is supposed to work?

  • 81BCSsOw5gL._SS500_  Duff McKagan – Tenderness – (Universal Music):  The Guns ‘n Roses bass player is back with a new solo album which is the first one in 20 years (not counting the 8 years since his band Loaded’s last album).  I don’t have high expectations or any for that matter, but I am curious as to what he has to offer and he has earned the respect for a listen.  I want some new GNR music though!!!

  • 81tPL+rvAWL._SS500_  Texas Hippie Coalition – High in the Saddle – (Entertainment One):  Sometimes you need your rock loud, raw and just plain dirty.  Something with a little grit and untamed and these guys fit that bill nicely.  It is heavy and full of raucous fun and sometimes perfect for the club.  Also not bad for that drive home from work when you need to work out a little of that frustration!

  • 81xvdnGMfsL._SS500_  Seventh Day Slumber – Closer to Chaos – (Rockfest Records):  Another Texas band, but this one is more of the Christian rock band.  The story behind the lead singer is interesting. After a suicide attempt, he became a Christain while on the way to the hospital and he hasn’t looked back since.  I am sure he has had his struggle since, but he found his place in Christian rock music and thankfully we reap the benefits of it.  Worth a listen!!

  • 61GyGS11y+L._SS500_  The Afters – Fear No More – (Fair Trade Services):  Another Christian band, but on a much lighter note…definitely more pop than rock and just as good.  This brand of music makes you feel good inside and out.  It is uplifting and at times even inspiring which always earns them a spot on my busy listening schedule.

  • 91HC+5Ol5FL._SX522_  Rory Gallagher – Blues – (UMC)
  • 81EiQ+rYh7L._SS500_  Phil Collins – Other Sides – (Rhino Entertainment)
  • b8b6302bf719d13d7eb2c94c62ef62cd  Phil Collins – Other Sides Remixed – (Rhino Entertainment)
  • A1MMR-F-4gL._AC_UL115_  Thomas Rhett – Center Point Road – (Big Machine Label)
  • A1ULSozvPmL._SS500_.jpg  Death Angel – Humanicide – (Nuclear Blast)
  • 716j+KqTowL._SX522_.jpg  Kirk Franklin – Long Live Love – (Fo Yo Soul / RCA)
  • 41r-iLeFvtL._AC_US436_QL65_  Susan Boyle – TEN – (Simco LTD/Sony)

  1. Listening to Tender on the commute. He’s embraced country on this one and Shooter Jennings is along for the ride. It’s really pretty good. I was considering picking it up, cause the deluxe LP looks like a nicely put together package.

  2. Nothing really here this week as far as I’m concerned John.
    I bought one album off of itunes yesterday that I have been waiting for years for them to get. I’m going to work on a review of it this weekend I hope and all will be revealed next week! haha
    How’s that for self promotion and hype ?
    Have a good day’s Friday
