Yesterday, I had my appendix removed…today is recovery and nothing better than new music. There is only one I want this week and it is on order. I hope it arrives soon. We don’t have as many releases as this week but we are still close to 50 new ones. Go through the list and tell us what you want to hear this week and let us all know if there is anything we might have missed. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Billy Idol – The Cage E.P. – (BFI Records / Dark Horse Records / BMG): If you read this site regularly, then you already know this is my top choice this week. Billy Idol is back with another E.P. and after last year’s fabulous The Roadside E.P., I am excited about this one and first single “The Cage” is a promising start. Even we aren’t going to get a full album, I will gladly take an E.P. every year.
And the rest…enjoy…
Kelsea Ballerini – Subject to Change – (Black River Entertainment)
What a crazy month March has been and thank good it is almost over. If you are still home cooped up from this whole virus thing, then here are some new releases you can get to help pass the time as I am sure you will need it. Some good stuff for me this week, but don’t know about you. Hopefully and if so, let me know what you want to hear, buy or don’t care about. Also, let me know what I might have missed that people should know about. My choices are in blue. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
Pearl Jam – Gigaton – (Monkeywrench/Republic/UMG): I was never a huge Pearl Jam fan, I’m not afraid to admit it. But it doesn’t mean I don’t like them. I heard the first song off this and I have to say it is pretty great. I think I will try out the whole thing. It is nice to see one of those 90’s Grunge bands still be kicking and Eddie is the only singer left and we are thankful for that.
Tesla – Five Man London Jam (Live at Abbey Road Studios 6/12/19) – (Universal Music):Okay, Tesla had huge success with an acoustic album like 30 years ago. Are they hoping to recapture that magic? Who knows, but I will give it a listen like I do everything they put out. Buying it? We will have to wait and see.
Vacation starts after close of work today and I can’t wait. I wish there was a ton of new music to listen to but sadly that is not the case. The are only a couple I will give a listen and I know one I had to pick up for my daughter (on vinyl of course). I actually think there is more for my kids this week than me. And actually the 5 Second of Summer was released last week. My choices are in Blue, which ones are you interested in or what have I missed. Have a great weekend as I know I will have a great next week…NO WORK!!
Panic at the Disco – Pray for the Wicked – (Fueled by Ramen LLC): Panic is on the top of the list this week. Why? Well, because my oldest loves this band. She is going to Atlanta to see them since they aren’t coming to Charlotte. I am sure I will be hearing this for some time and actually I don’t mind. They are pretty darn good. We should have the vinyl sitting on the doorstep when I get home…if my daughter doesn’t get to it first.
Ben Rector – Magic – (OK Kid Recordings): Ben Rector returns and I really like this Singer/Songwriter’s style. He tells great stories and has a great voice so there isn’t anything he has done I haven’t enjoyed. This is on the lighter side, but some days you just need that to relax.
