Ah Yes! The moment you’ve all been waiting for is almost upon us. Metallica, in my humble opinion, is one of thee most creative and consistent heavy metal bands of all time. Their tenth studio album, Hardwired…To Self Destruct will be dropping officially tomorrow, but the band has been leaving us bread crumbs to enjoy the countdown.
Seems like eons since I’ve enjoyed new music from the California band. Rumor has it that their new album will be dropping in December, so I’ll definitely keep my eye on that. As always, follow their twitter @TheOfficialA7X and show some love.
Today, we take a moment and thank the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, for the new music released in the month of May. I would be lying if I said there was a drought in groovy tunes over the past week, but this Friday the 13th was something I’ve been looking forward to. Check out what’s out there.
Corrine Bailey Rae- The Heart Speaks in Whispers
I’ve been waiting and swooning for new music from Ms. Bailey Rae since she dropped The Love EP back in 2011. You can ALWAYS expect sultry, soulful, jazzy music from her that will carry you for years at a time. I’m a firm believer in artist taking their time between projects. I think it makes for better more authentic sound. I’ve been streaming this album for the past week via NPR’s site and Love Love Love it. I’ll be headed to my favorite record store to get my hard copy today.
Pierce The Veil- Misadventures
Yaaaay! Metal fans unite and rejoice. Been a fan of these guys for a few years now after seeing them in concert with MayDay Parade and All Time Low. PTV bring a well needed metal/punk energy to my otherwise lower key playlist as of late. Excited to hear this.
Masta Ace- The Falling Season
Master Ace is back with The Falling Season, and I’m ready. I actually didn’t hear much about this album’s release until a buddy of mine put me on. With features like Your Old Droog and Torae, it should be a dope one. Get into some good Hip Hop this Friday the 13th.
Oddisee-The Odd Tape
Peace. This is another one I streamed on the NPR site and instantly fell in love with. Shouts out to the DMV as The Odd Tape will deliever jazz, soul and Hip Hop…the way it should be done. Looking forward to hearing great reviews on this one.
Meghan Trainor- Thank You
Thank You is Ms. Trainor’s second studio album and I’m excited. I think she makes good pop music and her career will go far. You’ve got to keep your playlist poppin and diverse, so give this a shot.
Some other albums that you might want to check out right now:
Cyndi Lauper- Detour
The Virginmarys- Divides
Chance The Rapper- Coloring Book
Let me know what you are currently listening to. Happy Friday the 13th.
