Sneak Peaks: Upcoming Album Releases 9-7-18 – 9-13-18
Boston Manor – Welcome to the Neighbourhood
Chic – It’s About Time – Woooah, but how can you have the real Chic without Bernard Edwards?
Clutch – Book Of Bad Decisions – The one song I’ve heard from this one is an excellent hard rocker, and if the album maintains this level I may actually get around to seeing em in concert.
Estelle – Lover’s Rock
Everlast – Whitey Ford’s House Of Pain
JEFF the Brotherhood – Magick Songs
Kilo Kish – Mothe
Lenny Kravitz – Raise Vibration – Be afraid, be very afraid
Macy Gray – Ruby
Paul Carrack -These Days
Paul McCartney – Egypt Station – Of the three songs Paulie has already dropped, one is strong and two are not terrible. As the hourglass runs out of sand can we just agree that he has had some motherfucker of a career. Can we also agree that his only masterpiece of the 21st century was “FourFiveSeconds”. At Metlife a coupla years ago (here) it was a highlight of a great set. Most anticipated of the week? Of course.
Paul Simon – In the Blue Light – Ann Powers made a good case for the album on NPR. I haven’t liked a single re-recording so far.
Rudimental – Toast to our Differences – The EDM rude boys are back, always good live, and unpredictable on stage.
Russ – Zoo – Super hot white rapper.
Ruston Kelly – Dying Star – With Jason Isbell unmoored, Ruston is the poster boy for great Americana.
Spiritualized – And Nothing Hurt – Sure, Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space was a classic, and just as surely nothing else was though some moments got close
$uicideboy$ – I Want To Die In New Orleans
Swamp Dogg – Love, Loss, and Auto-Tune – His very late career return is welcome.
Waxahatchee – Great Thunder
Far Future: Two biggies for September 14th: 6LACK’s East Atlanta Love Letter and the new Carrie Underwood.
