Happy July 4th Weekend. Man, this country needs to celebrate something because right now, there hasn’t been much worth celebrating. This country is more fractured than ever, hopefully the rise of protests will actually bring some much needed and long overdue change. We will see. Anyway, back to the music. There aren’t many releases this week because usually releasing around a holiday isn’t good for sales, but no one told these artists. There is only one I am actually interested in (in Blue) and hopefully there is something for you. Tell me what you want to hear and what I missed. Thanks and have a great weekend!!
- Trapt – Shadow Work – (Crash Collide): This California based rock band is back on their 8th album and I have followed them off and on through all their line-up changes and they still have the lead singer and bass player as original members which I am good with. It is solid, modern rock and something great to have on when I need something a little heavy. Looking foward to see what they bring to the table this time around after 4 years since the last one.
- Willie Nelson – First Rose of Spring – (Sony Music): Willie is back!! That is enough for me. I might get around to this one when I have time as he as earned that.
- Bury Tomorrow – Cannibal – (Music for Nations)
- Sidewalk Prophets – The Things That Got Us Here – (Curb/Word Entertainment)
