311, 2Pac, Iron Maiden, Mike Zito, TMBG, 3 Doors Down Release New Albums {New Music Tuesday}

New Releases for July 19, 2011...
  |   Comments

I experience souldeath every time 311 releases a new record. Of all the great bands of the '90s I wish were still together, how is it these clowns are the one that survived? Nirvana. Screaming Trees. Oasis. They aren't making new records. Soundgarden might. Alice in Chains does but it won't ever be the same without Layne. There are so many others we've heard the last from. Who do we get stuck with? That's right. 311, because God has a sense of humor and I don't at the moment.

We've got new music from They Might Be Giants, the well-meaning-yet-limited 3 Doors Down and some re-issues of a chunk of Iron Maiden's catalog as well as some 2Pac re-issues (the latter killing yet another piece of my soul). Rockers Cold have a new set out this week, as is the soundtrack to what I fear is going to be a truly dreadful film adaptation of Captain America.  That's about all of I've come up with this week. It's a weak, weak crop unless you're a fan of KidzBop.

I'm going to check out this new record from blues-rocker Mike Zito, whose new album was produced by Anders Osborne. I love Osborne's American Patchwork album as well as some of his older discs. Osborne also recently produced Tab Benoit's Medicine. Icon Robert Johnson would have turned 100 this year and there has been a re-issue of his recorded works and a star-studded tribute album but The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band have recorded a tribute set to the man they consider the true king of the Delta blues, Charley Patton. Peyton on Patton also releases today.

I guess what I'm trying to say is this might be a good week to catch up some gems you may have recently missed.
