Giddy up, kids. You’ve got some spending to do.
It’s actually been like a year or so since we had a new Ryan Adams records. Where does the time go? But, Ryan is merely the tip of a great week of new releases that await you….
Ryan Adams – Cardinology
Perhaps you, like me, gave this a spin on iLike last week when it was up for a couple of days. If so, perhaps you, like me, rather enjoyed this little record. Adams has found a safe, comfortable place with the Cardinals as his band and while we may never get something as out-of-the-box as Rock N Roll from him with the Cards, at least you know you are going to get something consistent. It’s not exactly rocking, but it’s not too depressing either. More quality work from good Mr. Adams here.
Snow Patrol – A Hundred Million Suns
Ok, so here’s the truth. I really like Snow Patrol. I dug Final Straw and, taking the ubiquity of “Chasing Cars” into consideration, I thought Eyes Open was a very good adult alternative/mainstream rock/whateverthehellitis album. “Open Your Eyes” is a favorite of mine. So, yes, I’ll be picking this up. And if some shitty chick flick tv show decides to score an emotional scene or whatnot with another SP song, then so be it. I’ll be upstairs, being all non-hipstery and shit.
Kaiser Chiefs – Off With Their Heads
I’ve enjoyed the singles off of the last two Kaiser Chiefs albums, but I’ve never given much of a chance to the rest of their albums. Although I do recall having a brief fling with Employment a few years back. And once “Ruby” gets into my head, it’s hard to get it out. So, while I’m not rushing to pick this one up yet, I imagine once I hear the inevitable catchy single, I’ll be hooked in again.
The Cure – 4:13 Dream
Robert Smith is sad and the guitars will be all jangly and chimey and the sort.
Bloc Party – Intimacy
So, this came out digitally via the Bloc Party web site a few weeks back. I had every intention of downloading it, but as so often happens, I kinda forgot and just reached a point where I decided to wait for the physical release. That day hath come.
So, yeah – we’ve got ourselves a winner of a release week. Let’s give ’em something to talk about in the comment if ya like.
