We are ending August with a BANG!! There are an abundance of releases this week and there has to be something for you to grab hold of and listen to all weekend. I am listing 18 different releases and you know I don’t ever have all of them so that is a boatload of stuff. I have a bunch I am eager to hear and 2 on order. My choices are highlighted in Blue and I can tell you right now, I doubt I will get to all of them this week as there are so many. Let me know which ones you are interested in hearing and which ones I may have a missed. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!
Needtobreathe – Out of Body – (Elektra): Is there any doubt this one would be tops for me. I am a huge fan, but a worried fan as guitarist and a very creative mind behind the band, Bo Rinehart has left the band. I don’t know how much he put in to this album, if anything, but that has me a little concerned as direction and what to expect. The one thing they did that I don’t particularly don’t care for is they released like 5 songs already. I am not a fan of bands doing that.
Metallica – S&M 2 (Live) – (Blackened Recording): I actually enjoyed the original S&M so I am curious to hear this one as well. Metallica and classical music I think are a good match. And the song they released already was pretty great.
Happy Friday!! Quite a few I am interested to listen to this week. Not sure how much merit they have, but I still want to give a listen. There is a little something for everyone as there is rock, country, pop, hip hop and even a TV show soundtrack. I hope there is something for you. I have quite a few I want to at least give one listen to just to try it out and those will be highlighted in Blue, as usual.
Harem Scarem – United – (Frontiers Records Srl): This Toronto, Canada band is out with yet another release just three years after their last one. I believe this is number 14 or 15, I have lost count they have so many. Down here in the U.S., they are not a household name mainly because they came out as this type of music was killed off by Grunge. If you haven’t heard of them, check them out as I am sure they have something you will like. I only discovered them about 10+ years ago and I am so glad I did. I now have every album and even some rarer ones. I can’t wait for this one and haven’t heard any song yet as I want to hear it all at once. They video below is posted without me even viewing it first.
Zac Brown Band – Welcome Home – (Elektra Records): I am not a huge country fan and find myself criticizing a lot of the current country cowboys that are there as they are are too polished and songs are pure and utter crap. Zac Brown is so not that for me. He is what I do like about country. I am eager to hear this one.
