Your Morning Rock/New Music Tuesday – January 22nd, 2008 Tuesday, January 22, 2008Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, New Music Tuesday, Your Morning Rock.
Welcome back boys and girls – hope you had a nice long weekend (if you had a long weekend) and are ready for a decent week in new music. But, first, you’re all heading to your local bookstore, correct?
Matt Costa is one of a few new albums that you just might enjoy…but what else? Let’s get to the jump…
Drive-By Truckers – Brighter Than Creation’s Dark
It’s DBT. It’s going to be awesome, even with another change in the band’s line-up. Also, the Truckers have the new full-time addition of John Neff. I find this hilarious as one of my best friends is also named John Neff. Different people with the same name are always amusing. I plan on this being the soundtrack to my commute for the next few weeks.
Matt Costa – Unfamiliar Faces
He’s a singer/songwriter and is on Jack Johnson’s label. I think you know what to expect here. It should be a pleasant soundtrack to a Saturday afternoon. Critics will likely hate it. Teenage girls will think it’s the greatest thing ever. The truth will be somewhere in the middle.
Cat Power – Jukebox
Hey! It’s a new covers album from Chan, albeit with an original or two (at least that’s my understanding). I’ve never been a big follower of Cat Power, so my opinion here is moot. I do know a few people who are excited about it, so I imagine one of you are as well.
Natasha Bedingfield – Love Like This
A transcendent meditation of the state of American society in war-times, Love Like This is at times avant-guarde in it’s composition and cosmopolitan in it’s delivery. People love to buy shit. This will be number one next week.
