Friday New Releases – October 25th

We are to the final week of October and Halloween is right around the corner.  I don’t see any scary releases this week except maybe Lea Michele’s Christmas album…that one looks truly frightening and I will stay as far away as I possibly can from that one.  Me, i plan on scaring up a couple for sure and maybe give two others a try.  They are marked in Blue.  Let me know what interests you and what I might have missed.  I hope you find something and have a great weekend!

I have everything else they have done on vinyl so why not this one.  If you like AC/DC, you will like this.  They are loud, aggressive and fantastic.  Turn it up and let them blow your ears right off.

  • 91uELDXSA5L._SX522_.jpg  James Blunt – Once Upon a Mind – (Atlantic Records):  And if you want something a little more in the pop arena you won’t find anything better than James Blunt.  His unique voice, great story telling and song writing are always entertaining and worth quite a few spins.  Plus, the man is hilarious.  I saw him live and his self-deprecating humor really made me a fan.  HIs last album, ‘The Afterlove’ was amazing and so I have high expectations for this, his 6th album.

Friday New Releases – August 25th

It is the last Friday of August and school is back in session for most people (my kids actually start this coming Monday).  August has really sucked for new releases (for the most part).  This week is no different. There is only one I am interested in and it is Degreed.  I already have enough Motley Crue as I have Girls, Girls, Girls on Vinyl and CD and plus they aren’t really offering anything I don’t already have.  Queen of the Stone Age has a new album out as well, but really don’t care…never have.  Man, I am just a downer today…sorry.  My interest is highlighted in Blue.  September looks to be a much better month for releases as Fall generally is the best time of the year for new albums as everyone wants to get it out before Christmas.

  • download-2  Degreed – Degreed – (Gain/Sony):  Degreed came to my attention thanks to a little label called MelodicRock Records and I have been following them ever since.  They are a melodic rock band with a very modern sound and are actually pretty great.  Give them a try if you haven’t.  Each album has some gems (CD is out next week, MP3/Streaming today)
