Garbage - Shirley Manson Butch Vig Not Your Kind Of People
This week's New Music Tuesday is an optical illusion. You're going to skim what looks like a really long list of new CDs heading for music stores this week but that's not true: there's only one new album coming out this week and I've been yammering on about it no end for months now.

Garbage is back with their first new album in seven years. It's called Not Your Kind Of People but it is definitely your kind of album if you have any sense at all. Shirley Manson & Co. are back to reclaim the title and I'll be damned if they haven't done just that with room to spare. I often pepper these previews with pithy lines about the misfortune that will befall you if you don't buy a particular CD. We're not doing that this time. I'm simply not giving you any choice in the matter. You are politely commanded to acquire Not Your Kind Of People. It's fucking well mandatory, is what.

Haley Reinhart - American Idol Season 10 - Listen Up!
Now if we were to look at the list of alleged other new releases this week, you'd notice the debut album from American Idol Season 10 third-place finisher Haley Reinhart and BlindedBySound has an exclusive interview with her about Listen Up! Reinhart follows winner Scotty McCreery (Clear As Day), second-place finisher Lauren Alaina (Wildflower), as well as James Durbin (Memories Of A Beautiful Disaster). McCreery's debut has sold by far the most copies so we'll see if last season's third place finisher can play catch up. Another AI winner has a record out this week: Kris Allen's Thank You Camellia.

You'd also see Paul McCartney and Albert King classic albums being remastered and re-issued with bonus material and I will own them both because I've already bought and fallen in love with the new Garbage record. McCartney's Ram is being released in a bevy of configurations as he's done with Band On The RunMcCartney, and McCartney II. I'm scoring the 2CD Special edition.

B.B. King is the King Of The Blues we all know and love and he's earned every bit of the reverance and adoration that surrounds him. There were two other Kings of the blues: Freddie and Albert. They are both beyond amazing, both influential on part with the more famous B.B. These three men influenced everybody. Albert recorded most of his best, most memorable work while at Memphis' famed Stax label and one of his Stax classics I'll Play The Blues For You has been remastered and expanded with a few bonus tracks. My copy is on the way. I've got the original CD pressing but I want to hear the new sound and the bonus material.

Tedeschi Trucks Band Derek Trucks Susan Tedeschi

Tedeschi Trucks Band has released one critically acclaimed, award-winning studio album (Revelator) and they're following it with a double-live album called Everybody's Talkin'. Our own Donald Gibson talked to Derek and Susan about their collaboration on Revelator. The overly prolific Joe Bonamassa has another blues-rock collection out this week called Driving Towards The Daylight.

I'm also going to throw a shoutout to Great White's new album Elation because at one time they were my favorite band on earth. Years have passed and I've moved on but I've met the guys and they were a big chapter of my younger years. I hope this new album is a good one and that it finds its way into many hands.

One final order of business…due to circumstances beyond my control (read: laziness) I didn't get last week's New Music Tuesday column written. I need you all to do two things: go read my review of Barrett Martin Group's Artifacts and go buy a copy of it.

It's Garbage week, kids. Let's do this thing!
