New Music Tuesday returns this week to BlindedBySound. It's nigh impossible to chronicle everything hitting physical and digital shelves on any given week so I continue the fine work of Bro. Mat Brewster and list a few items that interest me or seem to be generating buzz among the masses.
There's no doubt the album to know this week comes from Jack White. Lazaretto is his second solo record and follows up the magnificent Blunderbuss. I've avoided reviews and streams of the album but you can bet your ass I'm making a special trip to the store to score a copy. This one excites me.
Here are a few other items vying to join your music collection. It's #NewMusicTuesday and you are welcome to it.
- Lazaretto Jack White: I repeat... this is a must!
- Stockholm Chrissie Hynde: I'm not a big Pretenders guy but this is her "first" solo album and I'm already hearing some folks talking about it.
- Quadrophenia Live in London The Who: I'm not a big The Who guy but Quadrophenia holds a special place in a vital catalog and this live album featuring the album in its entirety is being released in a bevy of formats if that's your sort of thing.
- The Blues Came Callin Walter Trout: Blues rocker Walter Trout is fighting for his life, having recently received an organ transplat. Walter is great and beloved the world over. I'll probably check this set out at some point and send along my best wishes to the man.
- heartsoulblood Royal Southern Brotherhood: Devon Allman, Mike Zito, and Cyril Neville's band return with their second studio album (Songs From The Road: Live in Germany is sandwiched between their self-titled debut and this new release. The self-titled record really didn't do much for me but this trio is an interesting collection of talents and heritages.
- Whispers Passenger
- The Rockville LP O.A.R.
- Don't Call No Ambulance Selwyn Birchwood: This new album from Alligator Records has generated some discussion among my fellow blues aficionados.
- Trouble & Love - Mary Gauthier: I know the name but not the work. I may need to do something about that.
- Simplicity Tesla: Tesla was a limited band at their '80s peak but was far more interesting than they were given credit for and often times more than many of their more famous peers.
