Friday New Releases – June 21st

Welcome to a very busy Friday of releases.  There are a bunch of releases I am interested in getting, but only one I am buying as that one is so expensive, I can’t afford anything else.  As Summer keeps getting hotter, so does the new music.  My choices are highlighted in Blue. What are you interested in getting? Let me know what you want and what I missed and most of all…enjoy all the music.  Have a great weekend.

  • 71014pEYJEL._SX522_.jpg  Def Leppard – Box Set Volume Two – (Mercury):  Finally!!! Volume Two is upon us.  Volume One was so awesome, now Def Leppard bring us the next set with the albums Adrenalize, Retroactive, Slang and Euphoria all on vinyl (or CD is you want).  I don’t have any of these on vinyl so this is an absolute MUST!!! You also get 4 Vinyl full of Bonus tracks, rarities and live songs that is right…FOUR!!!.  What is extra cool about this is that a friend of mine was asked for songs from his collection to go on this set and there of 7 songs of his (live shows, I believe) that are on here and he is credited!! Way to go Mike Ladano!!!

  • A1ZmIUwu8gL._SX522_  Collective Soul – Blood – (Fuzze Flex Records):  I am excited about this one as well.  Collective Soul bring us album #10!!  I am glad they are still going strong and they keep getting better along with it.  I haven’t heard anything off this one yet as I want to take it all in at once.  These Georgia boys don’t usually disappoint so it should be great.

Friday New Releases – June 22nd

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!!

  • 61HMCRxKBuL._AC_US436_QL65_  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.

  • 510x3-DT1oL._SS500  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.

My Sunday Song – “Brand New” by Ben Rector

I can’t believe I am on my 11th My Sunday Song post.  Time to change it up a bit.  I have a new picture for the next 10 weeks (thanks to my wonderful Mother-In-Law) and the song choices will vary slightly.  These next 10 songs won’t be songs by Christian based artists.   They are going to be by mainstream artists, but they will still be fun, up-lifting and have a positive message.

I am starting #11 with the song “Brand New” by Ben Rector.  The song is off his latest album of the same name for which he is currently touring.  Check out the album and the tour as you will not be disappointed.

The song “Brand New” is such a happy song and can put a smile on your face.  Everyone loves the brand new feel of a new car, new clothes, newly washed bedsheets and the feel of a new girlfriend/boyfriend.  This song makes you feel all those things and more all over again and again.

The video for the song is extra cool as it is a bunch of clips of fan-made videos for the song. He held a contest with Yahoo to hold an acoustic show in a fan’s living room.   So many great videos were sent in that they compiled them together to make this super fun video.
