Music New Releases for September 21
Tue, 21 Sep 2010 12:12:22
Rock rules the roost this week on the music retail shelves. So do the Roots and John Legend.
Maroon 5 - Hands All Over: Impossibly good looking pop ‘n' roll with some delicious, unforgettable hooks. Sign me up. Count me in.
Methods of Mayhem - A Public Disservice Announcement: Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee made a record with the whole world. No, seriously. Lee allowed anyone in the world with an interest to work with song stems contribute and the result is A Public Disservice Announcement. Ambitious? Fuck yeah.
Serj Tankian - Imperfect Harmonies: System of a Down vocalist is on his second solo album. It's eclectic and quirky and doesn't sound anything like his former band, save for his adenoidal vocals.
Zac Brown Band - You Get What You Give: More neo country from the surprise Grammy winners. It feels Americana, roots rock style.
John Legend and the Roots - Wake Up!: What a combo! Hip-hop icons and a R&B superstar. It's a combustible mix that cannot be stopped. The band covers familiar ‘70s soul. Expect to find this one hanging out atop critic's "Best Of" lists when 2010 comes to a close.
Also released this week:
Shontelle - No Gravity
Billy Currington - Enjoy Yourself
Swans - My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope To the Sky
Matt Costa - Mobile Chateau
