Friday New Releases – June 17, 2022

We are in the middle of the month and still a ton of releases. This week we have around 50 releases for your viewing pleasure today. I actually have a bunch I want to hear (before I buy) and one that is already on order and will be here today. Those are first up and marked in Blue. Let me know what you are digging this week and what we may have missed as that does happen. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend.

  • 81Yj5OhV38L._AC_UL640_FMwebp_QL65_  Lit – Tastes Like Gold – (Round Hill Records): It has been 5 years since their last album and it was more tinged towards country than the pop punk they usually do. This time they are going back to their original sound…thank goodness. Here’s hoping for a return to form.
  • 81M+f+CiYnL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Iconic – Second Skin – (Frontiers Records): Another Frontiers Supergroup which is actually getting kind of ridiculous…but is one is featuring Nathan James (Inglorious), Michael Sweet (Stryper), Joel Hoesktra (Whitesnake), Marco Mendoza (ex-Journey, Whitesnake), Tommy Aldridge (Whitesnake). It was co-produced by Michael Sweet and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Revolution Saints). Hard to argue with a line-up like that. And the fact Michael Sweet isn’t even singing is a huge surprise. Nathan is a beast on vocals so this should be good.
  • 81ovqp-qkOL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Collective Soul – Disciplined Breakdown (Expanded Edition) – (Craft Recordings / Concord): This 25th Anniversary expanded edition of the release features newly remastered audio, as well as the entire set from their show at Park West, Chicago in 1997, and two bonus tracks. Yes, please!! It is on order and should be here today!!
  • A1GU-2XFtrL._AC_UY436_QL65_  Whitesnake – Greatest Hits (Revisited, Remixed, Remastered 2022) – (Rhino Records) – CD & Vinyl: David Coverdale has been going a little remix crazy of late and if I’m being honest, I’m a little tired of it. If it is for a box set great, but this isn’t a box set. I actually haven’t bought this yet and not sure if I will.
  • 91V8XOaIIxL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Jorn – Over the Horizon Radar – (Frontiers Records): One of the great voices in rock, but I will admit his last few albums have me left me missing the days of old. But he has earned my respect and I will always listen to his new stuff because I will get a song or two I really like. Here’s hoping for a whole album of stuff this time around.
  • 71aekz3bbmL._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Vypera – Eat Your Heart Out – (Frontiers Records): Here is some great melodic rock in a pure 80’s rock style and that is good enough for me. The two songs I’ve heard so far are pretty good, so this will get a spin.
  • 61e+zbxCU+L._AC_UY436_FMwebp_QL65_  Callum Scott – Bridges – (Capitol Records / UMG): Now let’s go in a totally different direction. Callum is a sappy pop singer and I have a soft spot for those type of singers…well a few of them any way and his voice is so good that I don’t mind the sappy pop songs.

And then there is all the rest…some good ones too!!

  1. I’ll probably pick up the Pete Yorn disc.

    Iconic sounds interesting. You mentioned Alessandro Del Vecchio as a producer. I recently picked up the latest from his band’s The Big Deal. It’s good!

    As for Coverdale, I completely agree, he’s gone crazy with everything. I didn’t help, as I bought most of the reissues. I guess I’m just as crazy.

    1. On board with Iconic, Lit,. Jorn and Collective Soul too. Oni with Iggy, need to check that one out too.
      Not sure about Grey Daze, how long can they milk it?

  2. Another pile this week – Iconic, Hank Jr, IV and the Strange Band, Oni, and I’ll probably see what’s up with the Jorn album. But like you said, he’s been kind of lost at sea for awhile.
