New Music Tuesday Foo Fighters Paul Simon Allison Krauss & Union Station Dana Fuchs Bob Dylan

Foo Fighters and Paul Simon are the undisputed headliners this week. I pre-ordered my copy of Foo Fighters' Wasted Light last month and am eagerly awaiting its delivery to my apartment. I've not yet heard anything from the new Simon record but our friends at SomethingElse have.

In addition to Foo Fighters and Simon, there are also new sets from Allison Kraus & Union Station, k.d. lang, and TV On The Radio. Dana Fuchs' sophomore effort Love To Beg is also out today and I've reviewed it. There's also a new Dylan archival recording out this week.

The new Foo Fighters set is the one I'm most excited about this week. Nirvana's Nevermind turns – I can't believe I'm typing this sentence – 20 this year and we just last week remembered Kurt Cobain 17 years after his death. Butch Vig produced Nevermind and he and Dave Grohl have reteamed for Wasted Light. Grohl's former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novaselic also makes a cameo on the record. Pat Smear, who toured with Nirvana and worked with Foo Fighters in an early lineup, is also back on board.

Foo Fighter albums haven't delivered the goods from top to bottom but there are always a couple of powerful, catchy singles. I'm hoping this will be the time where they truly deliver.
