What a crazy month March has been and thank good it is almost over. If you are still home cooped up from this whole virus thing, then here are some new releases you can get to help pass the time as I am sure you will need it. Some good stuff for me this week, but don’t know about you. Hopefully and if so, let me know what you want to hear, buy or don’t care about. Also, let me know what I might have missed that people should know about. My choices are in blue. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
- Pearl Jam – Gigaton – (Monkeywrench/Republic/UMG): I was never a huge Pearl Jam fan, I’m not afraid to admit it. But it doesn’t mean I don’t like them. I heard the first song off this and I have to say it is pretty great. I think I will try out the whole thing. It is nice to see one of those 90’s Grunge bands still be kicking and Eddie is the only singer left and we are thankful for that.
- Tesla – Five Man London Jam (Live at Abbey Road Studios 6/12/19) – (Universal Music): Okay, Tesla had huge success with an acoustic album like 30 years ago. Are they hoping to recapture that magic? Who knows, but I will give it a listen like I do everything they put out. Buying it? We will have to wait and see.
- Rush – Permanent Waves (40th Anniversary) – (Mercury Records): It is the 40th Anniversary of this gem!! Wow! Can’t believe it. There is nothing I can add to this so just Get It!!! Sorry!! This one was moved to May 29th this past week after I wrote the post. I apologize if this got your hopes up and then they were smashed.
- In This Moment – Mother – (Atlantic/WEA): And finally for me, a little modern hard rock…or are they alternative rock, metalcore, nu metal, industrial metal??? Maybe a little of all of it. Maria is awesome on vocals and I’m interested in what they have to offer. If the album is like the song below…hold on tight!!
And all the rest….
- Parkway Drive – Viva the Underdogs (Live) – (Epitath)
- 5 Seconds of Summer – CALM – (Interscope Records)
- Vanessa Carlton – Love is an Art – (Dine Alone Music)
- The Birthday Massacre – Diamonds – (Metropolis Records)
- Candlemass – The Pendulum E.P. – (Napalm Records)
