Friday New Releases – July 10, 2020

Things are starting to heat up and I’m not just talking about the temperature.  The rock and metal are in abundance this week and then Rufus classes things up as well.  I hope there is something for you this week.  For me, there is nothing I am running out and buying just yet, but a lot I want to hear before I decide on parting with my cash.  My choices are highlighted in Blue. Let me know what interests you and what I might’ve missed as I do miss some every week.

  • 81IpEyc7GdL._SX522_  Tokyo Motor Fist – Lions – (Frontiers Records):  The band’s second album and a must have for fans of Danger Danger as Ted Poley is the singer and Trixter as Steve Brown is on guitar.  The rhythm section is no slouch either with Greg Smith and Chuck Burgi.  I feel I didn’t spend enough time with the last one but I want to make up with that on this one.  Also, great album cover!!

  • 713ghLscsVL._AC_UY436_QL65_  Enuff Z’nuff – Brainwashed Generation – (Frontiers Records):  Another 80’s band still going strong.  For that, I am interested in hearing this one just to hear what they have to say so many years later.

Friday New Releases – July 13th

Are things heating up where you live?  They are here.  Damn it has been hot!  Sadly, the music this week is not really…hot.  There is not a whole heckuva lot screaming at me, but I am sure I will get to some of it eventually.  Maybe a good time to play catchup on releases from earlier in the year that I missed.  I do have one I want and it is highlighted in Blue.  Let me know what interests you or what I missed on the list.

  • 031918_n2b_product_images_vinyl  Needtobreathe – Forever on your Side: Niles City Sound Sessions – (Atlantic):  A four song E.P. from Needtobreathe is always welcome.  Anything new from these guys is welcome.  One of my favorite bands and this one is music created from their time spent at Niles City.  Here is what they say about it…”Forever On Your Side (Niles City Sound Sessions) was recorded with the producer trio Niles City Sound (Leon Bridges) out of their studio in Ft. Worth, TX. The 4-track collection of songs and collaboration represents a creative leap for the band, who usually self-records and produces out of their home studio, Plantation Studios, in Summerville, SC.”  I have the 10″ Pink Vinyl on order and sadly won’t arrive until the end of September so for now I will stream or grab the CD.  Oh yeah, my wife and I have a date night to see Needtobreathe in August.  Yes…I am a fan.
