These albums notable releases that was released in-between October 22nd and November 7th, 2012.
Which coach on “The Voice” ventured out of his comfort zone and released a holiday album? Will you ever, ever, ever buy the new Taylor Swift album? Which albums do we recommend for the music adventurist?
Cee Lo Green – “Cee Lo’s Magic Moment”
Cee Lo Green collaborated with established acts and brought in some of his former teammates on “The Voice”. You know we love Cee Lo on this site. I apologize for all of the jokes made at his expense, they were made out of love.
Parkway Drive – “Atlas”
Are you a fan of Australian metalcore? This is the album you need to buy in 2012.
Andrew Bird – “Hands of Glory”
I’ve never been a fan of Andrew Bird. He has rose to prominence thanks to a grassroots following. This album has mixed reviews. I’m sure his true fans will enjoy it.
The Soft Moon – “Zeros”
This album is for the music adventurist. Neo-post-punk isn’t a huge genre. If you a fan of their song “Die Life”, you will enjoy their new album.
Cody ChesnuTT – “Landing On A Hundred”
I was first introduced to Cody ChestnuTT in the iconic track with The Roots, “The Seed 2.0”. Unfortunately, I haven’t been a fan of his work since.
Toby Keith – “Hope on the Rocks”
Country music isn’t exactly my cup of tea. He has a huge fanbase and always sells a metric ton of albums, so he’s doing alright. I did go to his restaurant/bar the last time I was in Las Vegas. They serve beer in mason jars, so there’s that.
Of Montreal – “Daughter of Cloud”
If you’re familiar with this band, you will like this album. If you haven’t heard of this band before and want to check them out, I recommend their earlier work.
Bat for Lashes – “The Haunted Man”
I’ve been a fan of Bat for Lashes for a few years now. They release quality stuff and have been impressed with their discography so far. “Marilyn” is a track that best describes the album as a whole.
Taylor Swift – “Red”
I don’t know anyone who has profited from being dumped than Taylor Swift. This album will be on a lot of tween’s Christmas list.
P.O.S. – We Don’t Even Live Here
Yes, P.O.S. stands for what you think. He’s a talented underground rapper who has been around for a decade. The group “Doomtree” is his brain child.
Pig Destroyer – “Book Burner”
If you are looking for something crazy fast to put on your iPhone/iPod for your workout, you should look into adding this album. It might make your ears bleed, but you will burn a lot of calories.
Swedish House Mafia – “Until Now”
Swedish House Mafia is one of the biggest names in dance music. This album will get you movie, even if you’re “chair dancing” in your cubicle.
Gary Clark Jr. – “Blak and Blu”
He helped save the blues from extinction, but is his sound mainstream enough to move albums? His major label debut will certainly answer that question.
Titus Andronicus – “Local Business”
After releasing two of the best punk albums in the last five years, they are back to repeat their success with the critics. Rolling Stone gave this album four of five stars, so they are off to a good start.
Kendrick Lamar – “Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City”
Aftermath/Interscope has had success with signing successful hip hop artists. Kendrick Lamar appears to be one of the many future stars who started on that label.
Ne-Yo – “R.E.D.”
It’s unfortunate that Ne-Yo’s new album’s name is nearly identical to Taylor Swift’s chart-topping album. I bet he’s MAD…see what I did there?
