April is here! And as I write this, who knows how crazy it has become. I am sure we are still at home, I am sure the kids still aren’t back to school and the world is probably closed down…for the most part. But, there is still new music coming out and hopefully that hasn’t completely stopped otherwise this whole post will be for naught. What I am interested in are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what you are digging and what I might have missed. Stay safe and I hope you have a great weekend.
Ratt – Atlantic Years 1984-1990 – (Hne): I don’t really need this set as I do have all 5 albums on vinyl. I am really interested in the bonus material. If you haven’t gotten into Ratt, then this set is them in their prime and worth grabbing at a decent price. If you want to know how I rank their albums….check it out HERE!!! Now here is a little Round and Round for you.
Billy Raffoul – A Few More Hours a YYZ E.P. – (Interscope Records): I came across Billy Raffoul at the Needtobreathe concert. He was the opening act. I got to meet him, a horribly bad selfie with him and I bought his debut vinyl E.P. which he was kind enough to sign. So, naturally, I am going to be listening to this one. Hoping for a little something different, but either way, he is awesome.
Welcome to the last Friday of October and the last set of new releases for the month. Halloween is coming up in a few days and maybe there is something on here that will be a treat for you…or maybe you buy it, it sucks and then it is a trick…either way I hope there is something for you. The ones I am interested in are highlight in Blue.
Stereophonics – Scream Above the Sounds – (Stereophonics / Parlophone): These Welsh boys are back with another new album. After 20 years together, they haven’t missed a beat. They are on a steady diet of one new album every two years and without fail, he were are with their latest. If you don’t know them, check them out and see why they are top of my list this week.
Red – Gone – (Provident Label Group): This Christian metal band is straying from their Christian roots with this album and delivering a mainstream rock record. They even do a Sia cover on the album. This could be interesting. I will definitely cue this one up as well,
Everyone gets Road Rage at some time in their driving life. It is unavoidable. Sitting in Atlanta traffic or even Charlotte traffic now can raise your blood pressure. And how many times have you just wanted to ram your car right into the asshole that just cut you off or rode your bumper. I have too many times to count. When I get that feeling, I have a playlist that I have to put on that will let me just vent my frustration and anger. Maybe you can try it out.
