Welcome to the first Friday of August and there a bunch of new releases this week. Not many I’m interested in, but hopefully enough for you to find something. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know which ones you are interested and what I might’ve missed so all our readers can see what is there for their choosing. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a great weekend.
- Deep Purple – Whoosh! – (earMusic): I will admit, I haven’t listened to Deep Purple in years until their last release ‘Infinity’ which was pretty good. I’m hoping they have still upped their game here for another solid release. The old guys still have a little left in the tank…thankfully!!
- Seventh Day Slumber – Unseen: The Lion E.P. – (Rockfest Records): A hard rock Christian band. That is good enough for me. Not all of their releases have stuck a chord with me, but there has been enough meat on the bone to keep me coming back. Sadly this is only an E.P., but I will take what I can get. This time around it is some worship music which is fine by me.
And that is it for me. Not feeling the rest, but maybe you will….
