Listen to Alison talk with music journalist Erika Clarke about today's new music releases.
"Gimme Splash," Gabby Glaser
"Era Vulgaris," Queens of the Stone Age
Tuesday is the day when the record industry typically releases new music. There's a slew of records hitting the shelves, virtual or otherwise, today. We thought we would take advantage of the surfeit of music before us and play some for you. Alison invited Erika Clarke, a writer for Amplifer Magazine, to talk about some of the new releases. On the list: Easy Tiger by Ryan Adams, My December by Kelly Clarkson and Gimme Splash by Gabby Glaser.
Erika also talks about her album pick of the month, Era Vulgaris by Queens of the Stone Age. She recommended we listen to the entire album, of course — but we just don't have the time (or the rights) to do it. So, we listen to a little bit of the band's single, "Sick, Sick, Sick."
Some other releases of note today: The Mix Up, Beastie Boys; Get The Gore, Gore Gore Girls; The Fragile Army, Polyphonic Spree.
Also, CMJ has a nice list of new releases. And check out New Music Tipsheet for a more complete list.
