Release Radar – Foo Fighters – Concrete and Gold

We have some pretty big artists dropping albums this week, mixed in with a few up and comers.  I queued up 6 albums on my Spotify playlists to listen to.  I’ll start with the very talented songwriter/guitarist/vocalist St. Vincent’s 5th album “Masseduction” which I’m eager to listen to.  King Krule, aka Archy Marshall has dropped “The OOZ” and it’s getting a ton of positive buzz.  […]

Friday’s Release Radar – Greta Van Fleet

Notable new releases this week are lean but here’s four to investigate – Girl Ray, comprised of three 19 year old girls who started playing together in high school 3 years ago (same North London high school where the Kinks formed), have released their debut LP “Earl Grey” which has an indie pop flair with a warm vintage sound and they […]

Friday Release Radar

Its Friday!! Time again to mix up the ole playlists. Do yourself a favor and go check-out “Baby Driver” if you have the time to see a movie. It’s very entertaining but also one of the best examples I’ve ever seen of incorporating/immersing the soundtrack into the movie.  Many scenes have been set-up and choreographed […]

Black Terry Cat by Xenia Rubinos

A handful of notable new releases out today, at the top of my personal anticipation list is the new album from SoCal rockers Rival Sons “Hollow Bones”.  Also, you can find new albums from the quadruple guitar attack of Diarrhea Planet on “Turn to Gold”, alt-rock/country stalwarts Band of Horses with “Why Are You OK”, […]

The Hope Sixth Demolition Project by PJ Harvey

Notable new releases this week include another solid effort from underrated alternative rockers Band of Skulls “By Default”, new dance music from up and coming Australian electronic musician and producerFlume (and a bevy of guests) with “Skin”, spirited Toronto punk rockers PUP with “The Dream Is Over” and only because this is such a WTH […]

Get Gone by Seratones

Notable new releases this week include an epic loose concept album by emerging indie singer/songwriter Car Seat Headrest “Teens of Denial”, the second album from the pre-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers band Mudcrutch (with Petty on bass instead of guitar) “2”, new “supergroup” (featuring members from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Blood Brothers) Head Wound […]

Teens of Denial by Car Seat Headrest

Car Seat Headrest is a pretty stupid name for a band, but there’s a story behind it that makes more sense.  They actually started not as a band, but the work of a single artist, Will Toledo.  Toledo hails from Virginia, and first started recording music on his computer with the built in mic and […]

‘Never forget you’ by Zara Larsson

I just recently heard this song this morning; I fell in love with it.  I feel as if it’s a more of a contemporary/techno song, but it sounds so good.  Both of the artists have amazing voices and know how to range their tones.  It’s really talking about how a happy couple’s relationship ended.  The […]

‘Watch what you say’ by RJ

RJ has such flow with his beats, I really dig his rapping.  I mainly like the chorus when he goes, “I don’t wanna pull up to your house, you got too many people in your business you needa out a mirror on your mouth and watch what you say when you jump out the benz […]

Remembering Prince
