Welcome to Friday new releases on this Friday the 13th. And let me tell you this is a lucky Friday…no bad news here. There are an abundance of releases this week that I am excited about and it might be the best week in quite a long time or even all year. There are over 25 on this list and maybe 1/2 I am interested in at listening to once. How long is that going to take…it could be next September. My choices will be highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you see that you like and what I might be missing (could there be anything???). Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
The most important…
The Defiants – Zokusho – (Frontiers Records): Man, I am super excited about this one. Paul Laine and the Danger Danger boys are back with their second release and if it is half as good as the debut, then we are in for a treat. The first 3 songs they have previewed are sensational!! So expectations are HIGH!! I don’t usually listen to songs that are previewed on albums I am anxious about, but I could wait. If you like 80’s brand rock with modern productions, you will be in for a treat.
Tom Keifer – Rise – (Cleopatra Music):The voice of Cinderella is back with his 2nd solo album. His first was fantastic and nothing less is expected on this one. His blues rock and the gravely voice is just what the doctor ordered so grab a copy and crank it up. A great weekend is ahead.
We interrupt our normally scheduled My Sunday Song for a Special Edition celebrating the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl. The My Sunday Song regular post will return next week with the next edition in the series with my lovely wife picking the songs.
The Falcons use the slogan #RiseUp to rally their fans and there is a great rock song with that same name. “Rise Up” by the band Disciple is such a great motivating, heavy and loud song that really pumps you up.
So enjoy the song and enjoy the Super Bowl. Win or Lose, I am glad the Falcons finally made it back. I do hope they somehow pull a giant victory and stop the Patriots, but I will admit I will be disappointed if they lose. GO FALCONS!!
Another Friday and another long list of New Releases. The wife has gone to Michigan to tour lighthouses with her parents and left me with the kids. I am going to need something to listen to so I don’t go crazy this weekend. Good thing there are a bunch I am interested in listening to…and they are highlighted in Blue!
Tenth Avenue North – Followers – (Provident): Tenth Avenue North is a pop/rock Christian band out of Florida. They have been playing since 2000, but their first album didn’t come out until 2008. Now on their 5th album, I am expecting more of the same energy from the new album and looking forward to it.
