Wow, been a long time, been a long time coming! Let’s not waste any more time and get down to some new releases!
Until June – Until June – Wow a surprise hit and a late entry here. Sorry Kelly, you get the boot down one spot. (Not that these are in any particular order.) What a refreshingly sweet sound. Maybe I haven’t had my dose of Coldplay in a while but these guys have some throwback vocal harmonies and yet this incredibly lofty guitar tones. This is the CD I bought today. (Sorry honey, I did buy a CD today!) Feels like something I should have heard off the OC soundtrack! Girls! You get an added bonus to swoon over these moppy and scruffy bandmates as well! HAHAHAHA! This cool mixture of Keane, Coldplay, Death Cab, Seven Places, and The BeeGees works somehow!!! INSANE I KNOW! CHECK IT OUT HERE!!!
Kelly Clarkson – Never Again – The reigning American Idol Queen: Kelly Clarkson churns out another fist pumping, hair tossling, sing along in anticipation of her new CD! One I didn’t want to pass up, it was released last week but chica’s hot: VOCALLY people, her vocals are smokin’ hot! AI has given me Kelly Clarkson and Chris Daughty in exchange for my countless hours I wasted on earlier seasons and I’m much appreciative. This new single is reminiscent of “Since You’ve Been Gone” with much more class than Pink’s “U and UR Hand Tonight”(ahh…gaghh…I just threw up in my mouth a little…) while still grabbing hold of that teenage angst of breakups!
Donny Osmond – Decades Vol. 1: Love Songs of the 70s – Do I need to even say anything more here? There’s just too much: Vol 1?!?! There will be more?!?!?! Oh wow. The most disappointing thing is that Billboard lists this in the ‘Rock‘ category of releases. Great googliemooglie.
Various Artists – Bluegrass Tribute to Velvet Revolver – I can’t make this stuff up ya’ll! It’s got all you’re favorite Velvet Revolver hits! HAHA! I haven’t found a way to hear them yet but can’t wait! This has got to be the best joke ever.
Avril Lavigne – The Best D*mn Thing – I’m sorry, I can’t justly criticize this release! I want to like it so bad but I can’t!!! On her last tour, Rae and I and 2 of our best friends were like the only ones over 15 without children at her concert and it was incredible! Girl sang, played the piano, played the guitar, played the drums, put on a show, and entertained us! But this heap ‘o crap just…ugh…poppy, explicit lyrics out the wazoo, new blond hair and no tie, average rating on iTunes, I just don’t know what to do…
Hillsong United – All of the Above – I just wanted to gripe that it hasn’t been released ‘officially/legally’ here in the states yet! I thought today was the day and apparently I’m wrong! I don’t want your lil 2 song EP, I want the whole thing!!
The Wedding – Polarity – A release from last week, these guys sound refreshingly contemporary and with a song like “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead” how can you not love them? This was a hugely pleasant surprise on my iTunes display. 15 tracks for $9.99 and raucous guitars, good vocals, wicked tatts, and sweet logo, next step is to look at the lyrics! I hope they don’t disappoint b/c I’m loving what I’m hearing! I just wonder if they’re a little too late. This sound may be on it’s way out. Check them out though at their website and myspace!
ARE YOU NOT SATISFIED!!!! 🙂
