Sneak Peaks: Upcoming Album Releases 6-29-18 – 7-5-18
Bullet For My Valentine – Gravity
Charles Lloyd & the Marvels – Vanished Gardens (Feat. Lucinda Williams) – I’ve heard three songs nd they’ve all been good, a sort of jazzy Americana.
Drake – Scorpion – The question with Drake is whether in a marketplace exploded with hip hop if he can maintain his best in class pace with yet another album.
Florence + The Machine – High as Hope – Not a fan, haven’t liked what I’ve heard off this one either.
Gorillaz – The Now Now – See above
Jim James – Uniform Distortion – Without a doubt the single most boring man on the face of the planet… what the hell happened to him? The Evil Urger doesn’t exist anymore.
Indigo Girls – Indigo Girls Live With The University Of Colorado Symphony Orchestra
John Coltrane – Both Directions At Once: The Lost Album – Yup, it’s coming soon
Ray Davies – Our Country: Americana Act II – I wasn’t crazy about Act I, and of the two songs I’ve heard, his take on his own “Oklahoma USA” was better the first time and “Our Country” is so maudlin and unpoetic that it is terrible… wait till you get to the spoken word portion, you’ll be hurling. So why is it most anticipated? Because it is the leader of the Kinks… plus Coltrane was too obvious.
The Milk Carton Kids – All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn’t Do – New country back when T-Bone was putting together that Town Hall gig, the one song I’ve heard is classic country.
Yung Bans – Yung Bans Vol. 5
