Ben Barnes, Songs For You
Coldplay, Music Of The Spheres – I am hoping for an unmitigated disaster, an album so bad Coldplay stop being fools and go back on tour despite its effect on the environment, and if we get lucky maybe we lose Max Martin as well – MOST ANTICIPATED OF THE WEEK
Dave Monk, I’ve Always Wanted To Be Me
Dean Wareham, I Have Nothing To Say To The Mayor Of L.A.
Finneas, Optimist – I haven’t much cared for Eilish without his sister till the single “A Concert Six Months From Now” -a great distillation of an in and out and in (and maybe out) relationship
Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes, Sticky
Gone To Color, Gone To Color
Gucci Mane – So Icy Boyz – I was a huge fan for a decade and then a truly dreadful set at the Billboard fest turned me of. The material isn’t where it was either
Hayden Thorpe, Moondust For My Diamond
Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Georgia Blue – I believe this is a bandcamp only release and who knows? It might be good, I mean I wanna hear him cover “Night Swimming”
Johnny Marr, Fever Dreams, Pt. 1 – say what you will but Marr is no Morrissey and that hair dye has to go. The last time I saw him was with my ex at Gramercy Theatre and… nothing went well…
Julia Shapiro, Zorked!
Kelly Clarkson, When Christmas Comes Around… – so.. she’s a lesbian, right?
Lilly Hiatt, Lately
Remi Wolf, Juno
Santana, Blessings And Miracles – I saw Santana at that Clive Davis “Welcome Back” atrocity in Central Park. Smooth? Not as such
The Darkness, Motorheart
Tom Morello, The Atlas Underground Fire – in one of the multiverses he replaced Nils Lofgren…
Xenia Rubinos, Una Rosa
Young Thug, Punk – hard on the heels of Slime Language 2, Young Thug discovers pop punk as nu metal…
Zac Brown Band – The Comeback – I bet the stayaway is much better
The Viking warrior of Rock-n-Roll, Norwegian born superstar Rocky Kramer holds the very soul of music in his heart.
Rockstar Review: Steven P. Hamm
a lame 94K EAUs
sounds like Paul McCartney’s early 70s be bopping vibe as covered by the Meters
distinct and wondrous without being obvious or obnoxious
except for the title track the songs are on vacation
simultaneously self-effacing and egomaniacs
essentially a disco remix of “Rocket Man” featuring one of the the UK’s biggest stars…
“I literally really need you to jump up and down”
Friday night might kill us but Thursday evening is a blast
