Friday New Releases – August 27, 2021

Welcome to the final Friday New Release post in August and let me tell you there are a bunch to choose from this week. There are over 50 new albums to pick from so sit back and get on scrolling as I am sure you will find something you like. There are a handful I want to hear, but nothing I am running out to buy at this time. The ones I want to hear are marked in Blue. Let me know what you see that you want to hear and let me know what I might have missed that came out this week so everyone will know. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  • 81JBdQH7PhS._SX522_  Brian Setzer – Gotta Have the Rumble – (Surfdog): Brian Setzer, former front man of The Stray Cats, is back with another solo album. I am hoping for some good old rockabilly as no one does it better. His singing and guitar playing are exceptional and I am always ready for a good time from Setzer.
  • download  Big Red Machine – How Long Do You Think It’s Going to Last? – (Jagjaguwar / 37d03d): I know nothing about this band, but keep seeing good things about it so I am going to venture out and try this one. The band is Aaron Dessner and Justin Vernon and the music is indie/alt/folktronica which I didn’t even know was a thing. We will see how it turns out.
  • 614eJNoM-+L._SS500_  OneRepublic – Human – (Mosley Music / Interscope): Ryan Tedder and the guys are finally back with a new album. This thing was supposed to come out right when COVID hit and shut down the industry. It is finally seeing the light of day and I do enjoy Tedder’s songwriting so I am interested in hearing what the gang has to offer. I am sure it will be more pop bliss, at least I hope so.
  • 81HAZXoPFRL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Nelly – Heartland – (Records Label / Columbia): Nelly doing country!! Hip Hop and Country?? Part of me is fascinated to hear this and part of me is not. I do like Nelly’s stuff, but country…ehh! I guess I will have to give this one a shot.

And then you have all the rest…

  1. Holy smokes that a long list. Nothing here for me, this time. It’s weird, I usually have a gut reaction to something, but this time I just went through and was happy for all these people but I don’t need to rush out on any of them. I was surprised to see Toad The Wet Sprocket still going, cool. And Robben Ford would be worth hearing at some point, as always.

    1. And yes, a very long list. They have been getting longer each week and it gets exhausting putting them together, if I’m being honest. But these posts are so popular I have to put the effort in to it.


  2. That’s a massive list this week. I’ll need to check out that Big Red Machine – I’ve seen it all over the place but didn’t know what it was.
    Out of curiosity I clicked on the Kat Von D one…. mostly with the sound off because I’m not sure what’s worse; the music or the video, I spent the entire time muttering ‘what the f**k?’ It feels like a ‘The Room’ of music videos and goes to show that just because you can doesn’t mean you should.
