Friday New Releases – May 3rd

Welcome to May and a very dismal week of releases…at least for me.  There isn’t much I am interested in this week which will hopefully help me catch up on what I missed while on vacation.  There is one I am interest in and another I might check out, but that is all.  My choices are highlighted in Blue.  Let me know what interests you or if I missed anything. Or just stop by and say hi!  Whatever floats your boat.  Have a great weekend!!!

  • a1+ap30xvvl._sx522_  Joy Williams – Front Porch – (Sensibility Records):  Is she the better half of the band The Civil Wars that were together from about 2009-2014?  I don’t know.  I guess that depends if you liked her voice or John Paul White’s voice better.  I love her voice and enjoyed her first solo album after the breakup, so I am looking forward to hear what new she has to offer.  The band was more American folk and I can you classify her that still.  Whatever you want to definite it, it is some great songwriting.

  • A1W3vvhDtmL._SS500_  New Found Glory – From the Screen to Your Stereo 3 – (Hopeless Records):  NFG has been hit or miss over the years.  I am not sure I will enjoy this at it their 3rd covers album, but you never know what you will get so I might give it a shot.  Just glad to see a band from the 90’s still going at it as it seems a lot of bands from that decade aren’t around anymore.

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.
