Release Radar: Kelly Lee Owens – New Album

Happy New Year to everyone – here’s hoping 2018 brings as much good new music as last year!   First, check out the television debut of Julien Baker on Colbert this week.  I featured her several weeks back in an email.  Incredibly intimate and moving performance by her on a national stage – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbsXT_Bkl0Q   Second, […]

Release Radar: LEGEND – Midnight Champion

I’m more excited about the announcement of Jack White’s upcoming album in March than any new releases that came out this week, but there are two new albums I’ll check out on Spotify.  I had never heard of Anderson East before I saw him on a late night show this week, where he demonstrated interesting vocals and played with an accomplished backing band.  His new album “Encore” seems to have a little […]

Release Rader: St. Vincent – Masseduction

I have a lot of new music queued up this week starting with a new album/mini-album? from young Led Zep Michigan band Greta Van Fleet with “From The Fires” – interested to see where this young band is headed even though half the tracks are from their previous EP.  Noise/pop rockers Sleigh Bells also have a new 8 track mini-album out […]

Release Radar – J. Roddy Waltson & The Business

  This week it’s really all about only one new release – Converge’s “The Dusk In Us”.  The legendary Massachusetts hardcore/metal/punk/touch of jazz band is not for most people since they are extreme all the way around.  But they feature incredible musicianship, thought-provoking lyrics and innovative song writing.  But vocalist Jacob Bannon is intense, so you will need to absorb those thought-provoking lyrics as they are passionately […]

Release Radar – A good week for Pop

Lots of fun pop releases this week not to mention a new album from UK alt-rockers The Charlatans “Different Days” and there’s a 50th anniversary release for the Beatles “Sgt. Pepper” (remix is pretty good).   All I’ve been listening to lately is Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple of the Dog, Tool and a little Pixies, Mastodon […]
