I should be arriving home today from vacation in Paris, France so I will be a little late getting to these releases, but there are a bunch I want to at least listen to first before I buy. All my choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you are interested in or if there is something I might have missed as that happens…a lot!! Enjoy and have a great weekend. I know I will be resting from this trip and I am sure suffering major jet lag.
- Rob Thomas – Chip Tooth Smile – (Atlantic Records): The former Matchbox 20 frontman is finally back with a new solo album after four years. I liked his early stuff and definitely early Matchbox 20. I am hoping he captures a little of that lost magic, but I don’t know yet as I haven’t listened to anything yet, not even the video posted below. I will try it out, he has earned that.
- Rodrigo y Gabriela – Mettavolution – (Rubyworks): This might actually be first up on the playlist. I love these two. Their instrumental, flamenco style music is at times breathtaking. High expectations as I have never been disappointed before. Give them a listen if you have heard them before…it is really cool.

A number of new releases this week across a vast array of genres. There is probably something for everyone this week. We have Alternative, Christian, Indie, R&B, Country, Metal, EDM, AOR, Bubble Gum Pop and who knows what else. There a few that interest me, but don’t necessarily excite me where I am running out and buying anything. A few I want to listen to and they are highlighted in Blue as always. Let me know what interests you or if I missed anything. Enjoy listening and have a great weekend!!
- Band of Skulls – Love is All You Love – (SO Recordings): This English band is back with their 5th album and they are quite interesting and worth a listen. They are part Blues Rock, Indie Rock, Stoner Rock and just plain Hard Rock. They are a little of everything and that is what is great about them. Give them a try if you haven’t already.
- Danny Gokey – Haven’t Seen It Yet – (Sparrow Records): Christian artist and former American Idol hopeful releases his fourth album and I was pleasantly surprised by how good his last album was that I will be checking this one out as well. It is towards the pop realm in Christian music, but his voice is fantastic and the lyrics are great. If you need something uplifting, this should fit the bill.

Welcome to April and another Friday of new releases. This week there are a handful of decent releases but nothing I am freaking out about. There are a couple I will give a spin and others I will have to see when I can fit it in…if at all. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what interests you or if I missed anything. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!
- Mike Tramp – Stray from the Flock – (Deko Music): The former White Lion frontman continues his long solo career with another new release. Since we will never get White Lion again, I will take this as his solo stuff is usually interesting although I don’t like everything, he still gets a listen. I haven’t heard anything yet and I will wait until I can spin the whole thing all at once.
- Brooks & Dunn – Reboot – (B&D2/Sony): Okay, I give country music a hard time…well because new country sucks. But Brooks & Dunn aren’t new country. They have been away for a long while and I am happy they are back. However, I am disappointed it isn’t new material. Instead it is re”boots” of old classics with today’s country artists. I did say today’s country sucks, so this ain’t too promising. The Kacy Musgraves one could be cool though.

March is over and it will go out with a ton of releases this week. There is something for everyone with this many releases. We have metal, rock, alternative, country, R&B, jazz and christian music all to be heard and spun. Actually, for me, there isn’t much I am interested in and I will highlight those in Blue. Let me know what you found and if I missed anything. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. If you want to see a bunch of the new releases coming over the next couple months, click New Releases here or at the top of the page.
- Billie Eilish – When We All Fall Asleep – (Darkroom/Interscope Records): Okay, this one is on my list because it is my oldest daughters favorite artist right now and apparently a lot of people are digging her. She is VERY DARK in her attitude, music and especially the lyrics. But she has something that is the “IT” factor right now. A lot of her stuff is a little too weird, but some songs really knock it out of the park. I will be listening to this one a lot…and not all by choice.
- L.A. Guns – The Devil You Know – (Frontiers Records): Is this the real L.A. Guns or one of the two touring bands with the same name?? Kidding…a little. Either way, I will give it a spin and see what this old band still has to offer.

Did you know Hootie & the Blowfish are touring again? Wow, I didn’t think that would ever happen again…my life is complete!! In celebration, we have to do a Darius Rucker & Hootie & the Blowfish collection of memes from around the internet. Here are some of the better ones I found. I hope you enjoy them.
Hootie & the Blowfish…the songs…

Finally!! A fantastic week of releases. There have been some okay weeks, but this one has the most so far that I am interested in this year. So, I am not going to ramble on and on…my choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you are interested in hearing or anything I might have missed. Happy Friday!!
- Whitesnake – Slide It In (35th Anniversary Ultimate Special Edition) – (Rhino Records): Whitesnake has a knack for delivering fantastic box sets, if you don’t believe me just check out the Unzipped and ’87 Box Sets I have reviewed. This one seems even better. 6 Cds including the US & UK releases remastered, live shows and demos/remixes and whatever else they throw in. Oh, and you get a DVD full of videos and interviews…No Brainer!! Ordered and will be at the house when I arrive home from work
- Tesla – Shock – (Universal Music): Tesla has been going strong since the 80’s and this one brings us a little twist. Producing the album is none other than Phil Collen from Def Leppard. Teslas has opened for Lep many, many times and a bond has been formed. Can’t wait to hear what Phil pulled out of the guys…I am sure it will be fantastic.

Welcome to the day after Valentine’s Day. I hope everyone was with the one you love or at least loving the one you were with. And if you didn’t have anyone, that is okay too. Maybe there is something on here you could love. There is a little for everyone. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you are interested in and what I might have missed. Have a great weekend.
- Avril Lavigne – Head Above Water – (BMG): Avril Lavigne, what can I say. I actually dig her stuff. I am not afraid to admit it. Even if she married the guy from Nickelback. I won’t hold that against her. I haven’t heard anything off this one yet, but that won’t deter me from giving it a listen as she has earned that respect. Oh yeah, the cover of the album is quite nice!
- Jon Fratelli – Bright Night Flowers – (Cooking Vinyl Ltd): I love the Fratelli’s so can’t wait to hear Jon do another solo album. His last one I enjoyed so why would this one be any different. Give him a try, you will like it.

Climb in the hammock, sit back, relax and enjoy this collection of Jimmy Buffett memes from around the internet. It doesn’t matter what time it is because it is 5 O’Clock Somewhere so drink up!!…and light ’em if you got ’em.

Now we are in to full swing in the new year. The albums are starting to come out and today we have a long list of releases. There will hopefully be something for everyone. There are bunch I am interested in, but might not necessarily buy right now. They will be streamed to start with and I will pick up the ones I like the best. My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you like or are interested in. Thanks and have a great musical weekend.
- Starbreaker – Dysphoria – (Frontiers Records): Tony Harnell and Magnus Karlsson team up again with the band’s third album and first in over 11 years…damn…way too long. It is metal, it is hard rock and it is usually great. Can’t wait to hear this one.
- Rival Sons – Feral Roots – (Atlantic Records): Rival Sons are one of those bands you just fall in love with immediately when you hear them. Now on their 6th studio album they just keep getting better. They are straight up rock & roll with a heavy blues influence and worth a listen. Give them a try.

I normally don’t do Country, but I’ll do Carrie Underwood…wait that sounds really bad. It’s true, but not what I meant. I will do a collection of memes on Carrie Underwood. She deserves, plus she threatened to beat the shit out of my car is I didn’t. So, I hope you enjoy them.
