Friday New Releases – May 14, 2021

The releases keep on coming and another solid week of new albums for you. Not as many as the prior weeks but still over 20 to choose from. My choices are highlighted in Blue as usual. What are you interested in listening to this week? Let me know in the comments and please add anything that I may have missed so everyone can know what else is out there. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous weekend listening to music!!

  • 81M7TYdfCML._SS500_  Myles Kennedy – The Ides of March – (Napalm Records): Myles is probably the busiest man in the music business and somehow he still found time for a solo album. This is his second solo album and his first ‘Year of the Tiger” was absolutely brilliant. Of course, that makes this one have super high expectations. I have this ordered on a really cool green/white vinyl that was exclusive to his site so I can’t wait to see how it turned out. Plus it is autographed so that will make two albums of his I have autographed!!
  • 91ZiqomKJ5L._SX522_  Sunbomb – Evil and Divine – (Frontiers Records): I was just talking about Myles being the busiest man in the music industry…well, Michael Sweet might be tied in that category as he is constantly putting out new material. This time around Michael Sweet and Tracii Guns team up for their first album. The band is Sunbomb and is another in a long line of a pairings that Frontiers brings together. I am not a huge fan of this unless it turns in to a real band. We will see if this does, but I am sure this will be a one time thing, which is usually disappointing. I will hold judgement until I listen to it though.
  • 71znqrK+LjL._SX522_  Rodrigo y Gabriela – The Jazz E.P. – (Rubyworks / ATO Records): Sometimes, I don’t need to rock out. Sometimes some instrumental music with a world flair that leans a little towards the latin elements is all I want to hear and it doesn’t get much better than Rodrigo y Gabriela. These two artist are simply breathtaking when it comes to their playing. Here is hoping for more greatness.
  • 91Dc1OvNT7L._SS500_  The Black Keys – Delta Kream – (Nonesuch Records): I’ve always liked The Black Keys and I am always eager to hear what new they offer with each album. These guys have been around since 2002 and are on their 10th studio album already. Not many bands can keep that pace.

And that is it for me. Here is all the rest and that St. Vincent one might be the biggest release of the week for a lot of people.

  1. Arrived home an hour ago with St. Vincent on vinyl. I have pre ordered The Black Keys new one but have played it on Spotify all day to get my fix. Two distinctly contrasting records. Loving both. Forget about this week being a good week for new releases. This first half of the year has been bloody awesome.

    1. NO!!! I had not. Man, I can’t afford two more box sets in June…I can’t keep up. Between Lep, Kiss, Mammoth and Record Store Day, i don’t think I can squeeze in, but I want to!!!


  2. I could listen to Myles Kennedy sing every day. New Black Keys excites me, but I find I like making mixes of their stuff better, I don’t tend to play whole albums. I do like their Crawling Kingsnake here, though. And Morcheeba! It pleases me they have a new record. They remind me of Montreal – it’s where I first heard them and that trip hop style was everywhere. Still love ’em.
