Friday New Releases – May 7, 2021

I can’t believe we are already in to May. Time is flying by. This week this is a lot and there isn’t. There is a lot as in I do have over 35 releases for you today, but there isn’t a lot as their are only a handful I am interested in hearing. I will mark those in Blue. Let me know what you want to hear or what I may have missed as I am sure there is something that came out that I don’t have on the list and people need to know. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  • 81nvDrWhjkL._SS500_.jpg  Weezer – Van Weezer – (Crush/Atlantic): I am not a Weezer fan by any stretch of the imagination, but when you name you album “Van Weezer” and this supposed to be your so called metal album I guess, that makes me interested. I am giving this a try strictly out of curiosity.
  • 71VY-vuhmIL._SX522_  Nancy Wilson – You and Me – (Carry On Music): I am excited to hear Nancy Wilson’s new solo album. Although this ain’t Heart, it is cool she finally is releasing her first solo album. Their are 8 original tracks and four covers and some great guests including Sammy Hagar, Duff McKagan and Taylor Hawkins. We also get a song that is a tribute to Eddie Van Halen called “4 Edward”. I’m expected a good time to be had by all.
  • 719AjCf0i6L._SS500_  Staind – Live: It’s Been Awhile – (Yap’em / Alchemy / BMG): Staind is back together after a very long absence. Now their first album back as a band is a live album from their most recent set of live shows. Hopefully we will get an album soon enough, but for now, I am anxious to hear how they still sound. is the magic still there? We will see…
  • 91JJ2784QTL._SS500_  The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – When God Was Great – (Hellcat): Honestly, I did not know these guys were still going strong. I always loved the horns in their music as to me it separated them from a lot of other bands. I will give this one a spin to see what is still left in their tank.
  • 81rYAT1eE6L._SS500_  Diamante – American Dream – (Anti-Heroine): I don’t know anything about Diamante, but I loved this video and the young lady can sing. She rocks out with the best of them and now I want to hear this.

And then you have all the rest….

    1. Lockdowns=bureaucratic overreach.
      Facebook=vanity security risk garbage.
      Spousal Support=fucking bullshit.
      Pretty much everything else=fucking sucks, life isn’t worth living.

      How’s that for a summary?

        1. I know he has a reputation of being a right cantankerous bastard and I dare say he might be the kinda guy that you view differently if you know him.

          I mind reading an interview with him a few years ago (talking about whichever album he had released) and he came across as a right moody bastard… but this whole Covid episode has been pretty incredible… he’s at war with pretty much everything.

          1. Yeah, the way Ted describes him in the book sums that up. He would try not to interrupt when he was in the flow because things would get a little off kilter if he did. It was a fine line he had to walk working with him.

  1. Aly and Aj, wow! I know they’ve been doing stuff recently in the last few years, but I’m afraid to check it out because I don’t want the new stuff to ruin my memories I have of them from their old Disney Channel stuff.

  2. Wait, did you just type Staind and magic in the same sentence? Oooft.

    Loads here this week, huh? I’ll likely be exploring Van Weezer, Nancy Wilson, Iron & Wine, Marfa Tapes, Sufjan Stevens, and Tony Joe White! If I find the time!

  3. Tons of interesting ones…Amy, Ashe, Van the Man, Van Weezer, Saliva, Robin is a must and where did u find Diamante? They sound great…Whatever happened to Staind? They sound tired or maybe it’s just me.

    Good luck with that Laine chat tonight!

    Don’t think u saw this one coming but I’m listening to Reo and Wheels are turnin….what a flashback. And started on Confession. Digging it so far, only on page 38 why it may turn some away from reading it.

    1. Diamante, just saw hers on line and added. I saw the video and liked it. Staind are much older. Aaron broke from the band and went Country with a lot of success.

      Thanks on Laine!! It should be fun.

      Cool and REO and Confess. It is a tough read at times, but overall it was a good educational read on what he went through.
