Thumbs Up/Down: Preorders, preorders, preorders!

Thumbs up Thumbs up Thumbs up I’m literally stunned by the fall releases. In what started out as a dismal year for my listening ears has truly picked up. I’m going to go broke with all the new music coming out before Christmas and all the concerts coming through the Dirty South! Here are my picks:

  • DavidCrowder*BandRemedy – Sept 25th – Did I really even need to mention this one?
  • Foo FightersEchoes, Silence, Patience, & Grace – Sept 25th – Wow what a Tuesday that’s going to be! With a CD name like that what could go wrong??
  • Various Artists Live EarthOct 1st – It’s been what feels like ages since the event. I don’t know what took them so long. That actually has me a bit scared.
  • Dashboard ConfessionalThe Shade of Poison TreesOct 2nd – I joined the Dashboard fan club a bit late but their last CD was the CD of the summer for me! I loved it!
  • Matchbox TwentyExile on Mainstream – Oct 2nd – I’ve talked enough about this one already 🙂
  • Jimmy Eat WorldChase the Light – Oct 16th – WOAH! WHO KNEW?!?! Caught me way by surprise and what a great one it is! I’m so thankful these guys didn’t disappear!

Thumbs up Thumbs upNew singles get big thumbs up as well! These new tasty delights found their way onto my playlist this week:

  • Angels and AirwavesEverything’s Magic – CD slated for Nov. 6th. From AVA’s myspace page:
    “While traveling the world, being influenced by the people in it and learning more about ourselves as AVA, we realized that “Whisper” is not a complete story. So at the end of 2006, we retreated back into the studio to continue defining the way music is experienced both sonically and visually.”
    Few things make me giddy with delight and this is one of them! The new single has the pendulum swinging back a bit closer to Blink pop but still infectious and incredible! WOOHOO!
  • Alter BridgeRise Today – CD slated for Oct. 9th. Out from under Wind Up and doing this CD own their own terms and own way staying true to their vision for the band the gods of Rock and Roll are back. Gods of Rock and Roll?? If you’ve never seen this band live in concert this you’ve missed out tremendously. I witnessed Creed. Then I witnessed Alter Bridge! It was amazing! The talent these musicians possess and their ability to flawlessly and seamlessly pull it off is impeccable. Few bands put me in awe and this is one of them! I’m so stoked about Blackbird! I can’t wait. The new single is good. It’s a new dimension for the band. The first release was basically Tremonti’s testament to being a gifted guitarist & song writer. Blackbird finds Kennedy writing alongside him and it should be interesting to see what these guys cook up!
