Depeche Mode, Blake Shelton, Bowersox, Bonamassa, The Strokes Lead Week's New Releases

  |   Comments

New Music Tuesday for this week brings us a new album from '80s stalwarts Depeche Mode, Delta Machine, and indie outfit Wavves with their LP Afraid Of Heights. It gets a bit sketchy after that on the roster this week but we'll highlight a couple more.

We've got a new album from country star Blake Shelton and American Idol runner up Crystal Bowersox follows up her Farmer's Daughter LP with All That For This. Another former Idol contestant, David Archuleta, has new music out this week as well.

Rock/blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa has another record out, An Acoustic Evening At The Vienna Opera House , the title suggesting an evening of Joe B playing unplugged. I admire his work ethic and prolific ways but I think our man might do well to take a day or two off rather than releasing studio and live records annually.

There was a time a new record from The Strokes would have been a big news for me but I'm convinced they're just not going to recapture the magic of Is This It? and I don't love them quite enough to hear them try. Comedown Machine follows Angles this week, which I reviewed at the time, and may be the last of their records I buy.

So unless you're buying the new Depeche Mode record, you should probably go out and buy David Bowie's fabulous The Next Day or the stunning self-titled debut from The Lone Bellow.
