Welcome to May! Can you believe it? Time is flying. There are some really juicy releases this week and I am sure any one that follows this site will know what our #1 pick is this week and he is first on the list. But he isn’t the only one that we will be checking out and they are all highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you are interested in hearing and what we may have missed. Thank so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Jeff Scott Soto – Complicated – (Frontiers Records): His 3rd solo released in as many years and 9th overall and he might be the busiest man in the business. I think he is awesome, but I am biased as I just got to meet him a couple weeks ago and see him and Jason Bieler in concert (sorry, was I bragging…yes I was). Looking forward to dive in to this, but don’t expect a review until the end of the Jeff Scott Soto Series we are doing.
Halestorm – Back From the Dead – (Atlantic Recording): Man, I have been waiting for a new album from Lzzy Hale and the gang and the have finally delivered. Are they one of the best newer bands out there, no doubt they are. Lzzy has one of the best rock vocals and when they deliver it, they deliver it hard and heavy!
Only two more weeks of new releases worth mentioning before Christmas, including this one. This is one of those rare weeks where there is nothing I am really interested in and that is probably a good thing because I need to catch up on everything I have picked up over the last couple months. Wait a minute…there is now one that only announced yesterday so might be one I am interested in. Take a look through the list and see if there is anything for you. Let me know what you want to hear and what I may have missed. Hopefully something will get those ears burning! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!
Taylor Swift – Evermore – (Taylor Swift): SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE!!! Taylor announced only yesterday that she was dropping a new album today!!! That is two albums in 4 months!! Someone has been busy!!! I might check this out as the last Folklore was quite interesting and a nice departure from her normal music.
Foster the People – In the Darkest of Nights, Let the Birds Sing E.P. – (Foster the People)
The closer we get to Christmas, the fewer good new releases coming out. That doesn’t mean that aren’t any, just fewer to choose from. For me this week, there are only two Live albums I am interested in hearing and they are highlighted in Blue. Let me know if there is anything you see that you like. Have a great day!!
Collective Soul – Live – (Suretone Records): One of my favorite bands from the 90’s and from Georgia. I have followed them since their first single “Shine” way back in 1993 and they haven’t disappointed me ever!! I am looking forward to a live album as I don’t have one of those in my collection for them.
Deep Purple – The Infinite Live Recordings, Vol. 1 – (earMusic): Deep Purple has been killing it this past year with a new album and so many treats associated with that new album. Now we have a live album as well. That is all I need to hear. Thanks and turn it up!!
Circus of Power – Four – (Noize in the Attic)
Story of the Year – Wolves – (Story of the Year)
Culture Club – Live at Wembley World Tour 2016 – (Cleopatra Music)
Luke Bryan – What Makes You Country – (Capitol Records)
Walker Hayes – boom. – (Monument Records)
Belle and Sebastian – How to Solve Our Human Problems Part 1 E.P. – (Matador)
