Friday New Releases – April 16, 2021

Happy Friday Everyone! It is time for another week of new releases and for me there is one I am super excited about and one I’m curious as to how they will follow-up on the success of their last album. Plus a bunch more that might be really interesting to hear. I will mark all my choices in Blue as usual. Now, your turn…what do you want to hear from the list? What may I have missed including on the list? Please let me know so we can make sure everyone else knows about it as well. Thanks so much for stopping by on this wonderful day and I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!

  • 810xc2K2doL._SS500_  Needtobreathe – Live From the Woods, Vol. 2 – (Elektra Records): Back in March, Needtobreathe did a few live shows which I think were socially distanced of course and now they are releasing the best of those shows as an album. The follow-up to Live From the Woods, Vol. 1 obviously. My vinyl is on order and will probably be here in about 3 months, but the digital piece is here today!! Enjoy!! You will have to go to about 2 minutes in to get the song…the rest is the band talking to James Corden.
  • download  Greta Van Fleet – The Battle of Garden’s Gate – (Republic Records): Greta Van Fleet is back with the follow-up to their very successful debut Gold album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army. This is the one that will determine whether the band has any staying power. The songs I’ve heard so far haven’t been bad, but I am interested to hear them in an album setting as that makes a big difference for me. We will see if they can do it.
  • 81T6guu6rfL._SX522_  The Vintage Caravan – Monuments – (Napalm Records): I don’t these guys, but I love the vintage 70’s rock vibe I’m getting. I think I’ll check this one out…last minute add.

And the batch of albums, I will try to give a listen to when I am able…

  • 91NUFAac2+L._SX522_  The Offspring – Let The Bad Times Roll – (Wabi Sabi Worldwide / Concord Records): 9 years since their last album and their 10th overall album. I am intrigued to hear what they bring to the table after such a long absence.
  • A14GVbnYoRL._SS500_  Tom Petty – Finding Wildflowers (Alternate Versions) – (Petty Legacy / Warner Music): If the new Wildflowers Deluxe album wasn’t enough, there are even more versions of the album. Is this too much of a good thing??? Ummm…NO!!!!
  • A1pDyUSe9mL._SX522_  Paul McCartney – McCartney III Imagined – (Capitol Records): Paul just released Macartney III so what is this you ask. It is a reimagined album with help from other singers. Interesting choice…
  • 71+bzX4kPWL._SS500_  Norah Jones – ‘Til We Meet Again (Live) – (Blue Note Records / Capitol): Ohhh Nora!! What a talent, what a voice and now live…yes please!!

  1. Needtobreathe: THIS will make John VERY happy! Woohoo!!!

    Tom Petty: My copy has been on Amazon pre-order since Boppin told me about it a while back. I expect a Shipped notice shortly!

    Vintage: That song is quite a wall of sound. Cool.

    Norah: “Ohhh Nora!! What a talent, what a voice and now live…yes please!!” And don’t forget goreous. Definitely gorgeous.

    Offspring: Haha I know Mike won’t be excited about thhis, but for myself I’ll at least want to hear what they have to say.

    Greta: I dunno, just doesn’t grab me. Good on ’em for carrying on, though.

    Cannibal: I am impressed they are still going, right on. Did you know Jim Carrey (the actor) is a huge fan?

    Jethro: That set looks sweet! I only own a couple of their albums, Mike hand-me-downs!

    Imelda May: I love that cover photo on her album. That’s a great one! And if Ronnie Wood was in any way involved, I’m definitely curious.


    Gojira: don’t forget, April 30th the new Gojira record, Fortitude, will drop! GOJIRA!! GOJIRA!! GOJIRA!!

    1. Now this is a comment!! Nice!!! NTB has made me very happy. I would’ve been happier if the vinyl wasn’t so far out, but at least I can stream. The Greta one isn’t bad. Listening to it now. And Gojira will be one of the tops on my list for the 30th, don’t you worry!!


      1. Haha sometimes I don’t have much to say, sometimes you gotta stop me! NTB is probably stuck dealing with Covid delay/waiting, just like everyone else. Man the tracks I’ve heard from the Gojira are so awesome.
