5 Seconds of Summer -Youngblood – I counted em out earlier this year but the title single has been hanging out (though not in the US)
Arthur Buck- rthur Buck [Joseph Arthur & R.E.M.’s Peter Buck]
Buddy Guy – The Blues Is Alive And Well – He lacks concentration on stage and hasn’t quite owned the BB King mantle of greatest living blues player, still every song I’ve heard off this one has been great.
Christina Aguilera – Liberation – A big return, the Kanye West song was ace.
Chromeo – Head Over Heels – Always good for a hit or two
Jay Rock – Redemption – Could have done better at the Top Dawg gig, this is still a biggie
Johnny Marr – Call The Comet – Terrible on stage, this should be a MUST TO AVOID
John Parish – Bird Dog Dante – PJ Harvey’s buddy
Mayday Parade – Sunnyland – Emocore rockers are back
Mike Shinoda – Post Traumatic – Every song I’ve heard from this Linkin Park last man standing has been ace.
Nas – Nas Kanye West Produced – MOST ANTICIPATED ALBUM OF THE WEEK (for obvious reasons)
Protomartyr – Consolation EP
The Band Perry – My Bad Imagination
The English Beat -Here We Go Love – Back for the first time.
Wilko Johnson – Blow Your Mind – A long way from dead.
