Release Radar 5/27/22 – Suede vs Taking Back Sunday

Release Radar 5/27/22 – Suede vs Taking Back Sunday

So, twenty years have passed since Taking Back Sunday released their eponymous debut, Tell All Your Freinds? Life is truly fleeting. The 20th-Anniversary edition comes in this sexy sangria, as well as several other colors, along with a black, 10″ etched disc with 4 unheard demos.

I went searching for the new Suede single and realized I need to put “London” in the search bar. They have been The London Suede for years now (since 1994), but I still think of them as that band, even though the lineup has changed as well.

“She Still Leads Me On” is a really strong single, and Brett’s vocals seemingly haven’t lost a step. This band still leads me on, and I’m excited to hear their new record, Autofiction, slated for 9/16/22.

Sarah and the Sundays just hit my #RADAR this week, and I’m liking “Don’t Make Me Cry Anymore.” Just a simple strummed, jangly pop tune with catchy vocals, and a solid foundation.

Liam Gallagher’s “Everything’s Electric” is my favorite of the two so far. I love the energy, and he’s starting to write better lyrics, I think? The whole album is here, so we can hear it for ourselves.

The Born Ruffians never rest on their laurels, on the contrary, they are always reinventing themselves. “Don’t Fight The Feeling” is raucous, frenzied, and…fun. We haven’t had this spirit here since 1991. Oh, never mind, just mocking Lefsetz!

New Lord Huron has dropped, and it’s another dusty cowboy western-themed dream. It’s nice, “Your Other Life.”

At first listen I thought this Kanye West, XXXTENTACION collaboration was weird, and then I watched the Look at Me: XXXTentacion documentary and felt different.

Maybe Kanye made a smart move? Jah, or X as they call him, is a force to reckoned with, whether you like him or not. Watch him sing “Look At Me” and tell me he’s not. It’s been played over one BILLION times on Spotify, tell me there’s a song that’s been downloaded more and I’ll ask you to double-check.

X singing that hook “True love, shouldn’t be this complicated/I thought I’d die in your arms?” with Kanye obsessing over losing his kids rapping, “Only neighbor in the hood with a door they can knock on/I leave the light on/True love (daddy’s not gone)/Shouldn’t be this complicated (you see the light on).”

There’s a light back on in Kanye West, is there?

Your Jazz Cut Of The Week is “Never Stop Playing” by Wolfgang Lackerschmid. According to Wikipedia, he is a “German jazz musician, bandleader, and composer. His main instrument is the vibraphone, but he also plays many other percussion instruments.” It’s as eclectic as all get out and the vibraphone sounds so alive and happy.
