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.
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!!
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.
There is a lot of Rock albums out today and I am super excited and hope I can get through them all. Frontiers Records normally does 4 albums every month but today they bring us 5 albums that could keep me very busy. I have highlighted in Blue the ones I am most excited about. I am sure there is something this week for everyone.
King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard – Flying Microtonal Banana – (Flightless Records): King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard are back after only one year and now they are top on my list. I had never heard of them until I did a music challenge where I pick an album to listen to based solely on the band name, the album name or the album cover and I picked them. Read about it here. I found that album to be stellar and now they will be the first thing I listen to on this day out of all the new releases. They are a very unique band and probably an acquired taste and the song “Rattlesnake” makes me a little worried about this release, but I will still listen.
Mike Tramp – Maybe Tomorrow – (Target Records): Mike Tramp keeps pumping out the solo music and he brings us a new one to enjoy. The former lead singer of 80’s rock band, White Lion, has carved path in his solo work that is nothing like his former band and that is okay. He never disappoints.
