Friday New Releases – August 2nd

Summer is coming to end, but the heat is not.  One week (and a day) until Kiss End of the Road Tour and hopefully something here will hold me over until then.  Sadly, there isn’t much for my liking here this week.  There are a few I will give a listen, but nothing I am buying or overly crazy about.  Hopefully there is something for you this week. If so, let me know what it is and let me know if I missed something so I can check it out.  My choices are highlighted in Blue.  Thanks and have a great weekend.

Friday New Releases – February 2nd

Welcome to February’s First Friday of new releases.  There is a little Metal, Rock, Pop, Country and even Frank Zappa (he is his own category).  Hopefully something will float your boat.  There is only one I am really interested in and I might check out some others, but too early to say.  My choice is highlighted in Blue as always.

  • 61AHx4Gb31L._AC_US436_QL65_  Justin Timberlake – Man of the Woods – (RCA Records):  Is it no surprise that Justin is back with a new album as he is performing as the headline act for the Super Bowl Halftime Show on Sunday.  The first single is a little different and took some getting used to, but I think I am digging it a little now.  I am interested to see what he has to offer.  I will admit I am a fan of his music so this one is a no brainer for me.
