Friday New Releases – December 7th

Happy Friday.  Welcome to December and we are ever closer to Christmas so the choices get more limited and I have to stop buying so my family has something to get me for Christmas (and my Birthday).  This week there are a handful of releases and a lot of them live. I have highlighted in Blue those I might give a listen, but no promises.  Let me know if there is anything for you or anything I missed.  Have a great music Weekend!!

  • 51wAcQGL3OL._AC_US436_QL65_  Coldplay – Live in Buenos Aires – (Parlophone):  I haven’t listened to Coldplay much at all lately, so not sure why I am interested in hearing this, but it it is calling me.  I will give it a spin.

  • 41ffk6lfXtL._SS500  Gotthard – Defrosted 2: Live – (Nuclear Blast):  When Steve Lee was alive and the lead singer of Gotthard, I was a huge fan.  I haven’t been since and it is no fault of the band, I just found Steve to be AMAZING! and it is hard to get back into the band now.  The original Defrosted was great and I am willing to give this one a try out of respect for the band.

Friday New Releases – April 28th

It is the last Friday of April…amazing how time flies.  We have a lot of albums coming out today, but nothing that really excites me.  I will pick a couple to listen to, but it looks like a good week to get caught up on previously released albums from the last couple weeks. I hope you can find something that tickles your fancy.  Mine are highlighted in Blue.

  • 170x170bb-49  John Mellencamp – Sad Clowns & Hillbillies – (John J. Mellencamp):  Always a fan of the former Mr. Cougar.  Whatever he puts out I always give a spin and see what he has to offer. I haven’t heard anything yet so not sure what to expect.  I do know it is his 23rd release and will feature Carlene Carter throughout.  We will see…or I guess we will hear soon enough.

  • 170x170bb (82)  The Cranberries – Something Else – (The Cranberries & BMG): It has been 5 years since a Cranberries release and that is way too long to go between albums especially for a band as talented as them.  Glad to get some new material even if it is only 3 new songs.  The rest are acoustic and orchestral versions of 10 previous hits. I am not overly greedy so I will be happy with the 3 new singles even thought I would have preferred a full album of new songs.
