Friday New Releases – August 9th

Happy Friday!!  Another work week behind us and new music weekend ahead of us.  Does it get any better than that?  Nope!  This Friday, however, there are not a ton of releases (at least not that I am interested in.  There is one I am anxious to hear and the rest…neh.  There is one I will hear whether I want to or not thanks to my daughter and another I might listen to as I am not sure I get this band and see if this one changes my mind at all.  MY choices are in Blue.  Let me know what tickles your fancy or if I missed anything.  Thanks and have a great Weekend!!

  • 6127Sh3ejCL._SS500_.jpg  Wilder Woods – Wilder Woods – (Atlantic Records):  This is the only release I am excited about and have ordered the vinyl which hopefully will there when I get home from work!!  Bear Rinehart, lead singer for one of all time favorite bands, Needtobreathe, has a side project called Wilder Woods.  The music is different from Needtobreathe, but that voice is the same.  It is another opportunity to explore something different and spread his wings of creativity.  It is a little lighter at times and yet darker as well as he explores different sides of himself than what you would normally get.  I can’t wait to explore this one.

  • 81bMGIBu5mL._SS500_  Slipknot – We Are Not Your Kind – (Roadrunner Records):  Okay, here is a band I have never really listened to. A little heavier than I like or maybe a little stranger than I like.  The mask, yeah whatever, the music, eeeh, but I might give it a listen to see what the hubbub is about.  Don’t expect I will like this any more (or any less) then their other stuff.

Friday New Releases – May 25th

Welcome to the last Friday of May.  Work is really busy right now and I need something to take my mind off of it.  Thank goodness it is Memorial Day Weekend and we get Monday off.  I need it.  There are several releases I will be checking out this weekend and they are highlighted in Blue.  Let me know what you will be getting or whatever might peak your interest.  Have a great weekend!!

  • 81OQuFJNNRL._SX522_  Shawn Mendes – Shawn Mendes – (Island Records):  Shawn Mendes will be played constantly in my house this weekend and for weeks to come as I have two daughters who love him, one daughter a little too much…I swear a restraining order is in her future.  Anyway, I have heard a couple songs and I have to say that “In My Blood” is a rather spectacular song.  If there are any more like this one on the album, it will probably be great.

  • 51vKyvrz9LL._AC_US320_QL65_.jpg  Hoobastank – Push Pull – (Napalm Records):  Here is a name I haven’t heard in years.  Six years to be exact.  It has been that long since their last album and honestly I haven’t followed them in quite a long time.  No better time then the present to revisit the band.  Haven’t heard anything yet so it will be interesting to see what they still have to offer.
