Welcome to Friday…you made it! Another week in the books and for your reward, here are a bunch of new releases for your listening pleasure. It is Frontier Records monthly release so there are at least 5 from that label alone. You get a lot of rock this week and even a little Norah and who doesn’t want that. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you are looking forward to hearing and what I may have missed. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!
- House of Lords – New World…New Eyes – (Frontiers Records): I have been following House of Lords since their debut in 1988 thanks to Gene Simmons. Gene produced their first album and now here we are 32 years and 12 albums later and they are still going strong. Can’t wait to see what they have to offer…
- BPMD – American Made – (Napalm Records): A heavy metal supergroup featuring from Overkill vocalist Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth, Vio-lence and former Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel, and two members of Metal Allegiance–bassist Mark Menghi and drummer Mike Portnoy. Dang, not bad. Portnoy has to be the busiest man in music history. The number of albums and bands he is in is absolutely insane. The man can’t sit still.
- Norah Jones – Pick Me Up Off the Floor – (Blue Note Records / Capitol): Oh Norah!! What a voice! She is such a force to be reckoned with. The woman couldn’t hit a bad note if she tried. With so much rock this week, I can’t wait to tackle this for a change of pace and something to take me to whole different world.
