Friday New Releases – April 23, 2021

Happy Friday everyone! Spring is upon and us and things are heating up both in temperature and releases. We have some great stuff for you today, at least I hope you find some of it great. Lots of rock, lots of Indie and lots of country. I know I’m excited as I have 3 new albums I am eagerly waiting on and those are marked in Blue. Let me know what you are interested in hearing and what I may have missed on my list so everyone can know what is out there. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  • 81RzK+8xYmL._SX522_  Reach – The Promise of a Life – (Icons Creating Evil Art): This three-piece band from Sweden is back with their third album. Their last album, ‘The Great Divine’, was my favorite album a few years ago so can’t wait for this one. The used to be a little melodic rock, but now they are far from it. They are way more alternative rock now in the vein of maybe The Muse or even Panic at times. We will see if I like the new direction, but I have a feeling I still will.
  • 71w+LOfrv6L._SS500_  Kaleo – Surface Sounds – (Elektra Records): Are you ready for Icelandic Blues Rock…you heard me right. This band from Iceland are the real deal. This is their third album that was supposed to come out last year right around the time the pandemic hit and now we are finally getting it. They are a solid blues band and you will be in for a treat.
  • 61K4Xxp2i0L._SX522_  Dirty Honey – Dirty Honey – (Dirt Records): Here is some more hard rock and blues rock and these guys have the goods. The only unsigned band to ever have a #1 on the Billboard charts and if that doesn’t interest you, I don’t know what will. Think 80’s rock with a blues influence and you will be quite happy. Are they breaking new ground? No, but they are making that old ground super exciting and fun.

And all the rest….

      1. Oh yeah true and it’s good to keep up with what’s happening in the music industry; not that I’m good at it. I almost forgot about James Durbin’s album back in February, till I saw your post.

    1. That is awesome about Claude…I didn’t realize that. Very cool. I am blasting Reach now…very, very different from their last album. More modern rock in the vein of maybe Panic at the Disco. I like it though.

  1. Lots of interesting ones this week.. must have’s Lennon and Bodom. Want to check out Dirty Honey, Dumpstafunk, Reach and of course Mascis. Listening to Celeste at the moment. Has a bit of Winehouse vibes.

  2. Motorhead is on my wishlist. Just hoping for a price drop because it is darn expensive. I’m going to need to do a deep dive on Dirty Honey at some point because I like what I have heard from them.
