Happy Friday and we have a ton of releases for you this week with over 50+ new releases. I have a few I want to hear and definitely have purchased one of these so far and it is the first one on the list. Scan through and let me know what you want to hear this week or what we may have missed out on. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Kiss – Off the Soundboard: Des Moines 1977 – (UMe): Kiss on their 4th Soundboard release and I’m a little behind as I haven’t even listened to the last one and there is another one out…crazy. Maybe this will force me to open them both up and spin them. The other 3 have been from the reunion era or later. This is the first one with the classic line-up and I am excited to dive in to this one. Bring ’em on!
Robbie Williams – XXV – (Robert Williams / Farrell Music Ltd): Robbie Williams is now on his 13th studio album and it his 25th Anniversary as a solo artist. It is full of re-recorded and orchestrated versions of his biggest hits. Plus with the deluxe edition you get three new songs. A must for my collection.
It is the last Friday of the month and even the last day of the month. There are over 20 albums on the list today including from some old times like Neil Diamond and Bob Dylan up to newcomers like La’Porsha Renae and Jackie Evancho (ok, she isn’t that new, but she is young). There are also quite a couple 90’s artists back such as Jamiroquai and Ice T’s Body Count. Only a few I am really interested in hearing right away and they are highlighted in Blue. I hope there is something on this list that will brighten your day. Friday new releases are just a great way to end a busy week.
Brother Firetribe – Sunbound – (Spinefarm): Yes, I know this album came out last week, but I had excluded it from the list for some strange reason. I wanted to highlight the release so I added it to this week’s new releases…Brother Firetribe comes to us from the great country of Finland. They are a hard rock and AOR band and is a 5 piece band. ‘Sunbound’ is their fourth release and after three previously stellar releases, I am looking forward to more magic from this band.
Mastodon – Emperor of Sand – (Reprise Records): Mastodon is heavy metal band from Atlanta, Georgia where I lived for 45 years prior to moving to Charlotte. These guys are heavy metal and deliver the heavy to the extremes. They are unlike most bands I listen to and it is nice to change it up a little. I have followed their career for awhile and can’t wait to give a listen.
