Your Morning Rock/New Music Tuesday – May 13th, 2008 Tuesday, May 13, 2008Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, New Music Tuesday, Your Morning Rock.
It’s one of the better release dates you’ll come across this year…
We’ll get a little bit emo and a little twangy…after the jump!
Old 97s – Blame It On Gravity
Woooooo!!! My love for this band of Texans is well established in these parts and this album, from the early press, has the makings of a great one. It’s likely this would be all I’d listen to for the next several week if it wasn’t for…
Death Cab for Cutie – Narrow Stairs
I admit it. I enjoy the Death Cab. Like many others, somewhere right after the release of Transatlanticism I became a fan. So, this is likely to alternate in and out with the 97s for me for the next several weeks.
Jason Mraz – We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.
I have very mixed feelings regarding the work of Mr. Mraz. I enjoy songs like “Sleeping to Dream” and “On Love, In Sadness”. But, I also find a lot of his songs to be fairly derivative acoustic pap. So, I’ll likely give this one a couple of listens online, but I doubt I’ll drop my 10 bucks on it.
Filter – Anthems for the Damned
I thought these guys were broken up, no?
Local H – 12 Angry Months
An album of break-up songs for every month in year. Glorious.
Pretty solid week right there gang. Huzzah!
