by Linda Ryan | August 27, 2013
Check out the best of the week’s new releases -- and leave no genre unexplored! Highlights include Hail to the King from Avenged Sevenfold, which features their single of the same name. If ferocious riffs are your thing, “Shepherd of Fire” is a particularly rockin’ track. Franz Ferdinand’s Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action features a track called “Evil Eye.” Check this one out and then maybe hit “This Is Radio Clash” by The Clash (hmm!).
A couple of pop chanteuses -- Serena Ryder and Ellie Goulding -- release new albums this week, as does American Idol alum Mandisa. If beats are more your thing, check out Big Sean’s Hall of Fame, Goodie Mob’s Age Against the Machine or even Drop City Yacht Club’s new single, “Dreamin’ California.” Did you know beloved country group Alabama has a new album of duets? They re-recorded some of their biggest hits with some of today’s biggest country stars. If country is your thing, you need to hear Jason Aldean join the guys on “Tennessee River.”
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Hit play and hear more from this week’s new releases.
