HipsterZOMBIEJoint New Music Friday Picks 12/11/20

Lots of great new albums are dropping today to get us rockin’ through the weekend! All of these albums and more are now streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.

Cyberpunk 2077 Radio Vol. 1

Per HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience:

In addition to Run the Jewels’ recent track “No Save Point,” the soundtarck boasts new music from Grimes, Ratboy, SOPHIE and Shygirl, the Armed, HEALTH, Let’s Eat Grandma’s Rosa Walton, and others. Each of the artists in the game will take on pseudonyms in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe. Grimes is Lizzy Wizzy, for example, and the duo of SOPHIE and Shygirl are known as Clockwork Venus. The soundtrack will be accessible in-game via radio stations à la Grand Theft Auto V. Volume 1 of the soundtrack is out December 11, while Volume 2 arrives a week later on December 18. The music is bombastic and beat heavy, perfect for late night drives.

This Is Our Life EP – DES ROCS

Per Dread Music Review:

“‘This Is Our Life’ is a reflection of the now,” said Des.  “It’s a piece of art dedicated to the proposition that our greatest tragedies can lead to our greatest strengths, and that’s sure as hell been true for me.  ‘This Is Our Life’ is the finale of one bittersweet journey and the opening page of another, and the truest representation of who I am as an artist and as a person.”The early press for This Is Our Life has been terrific.  Loudwire recently singled out the track “Nothing Personal” in its “Best Rock and Metal Songs” staff picks, calling it “…a catchy little love song with a horror-bend to it.”

I Need To Know (single) Starcrawler

Per HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience:

Alt-rock band, Starcrawler covers the Tom Petty song, “I Need To Know” and put their own unique spin on the classic tune. Former Heartbreakers member, Mike Campbell, joins in on the cover. A nice tribute to Petty.

Evermore – Taylor Swift

Per NME:

If ‘Folklore’ is an introspective, romantic older sister, ‘Evermore’ is the freewheeling younger sibling. ‘Folklore’ was Swift’s masterful songwriting spun through a very specific sonic palette; ‘Evermore’ feels looser, with more experimentation, charm and musical shades at play. The new album reaps the rewards the stylistic leap of faith that ‘Folklore’ represented, pushing the boundaries of that sonic palette further still.

Little Bastards – The Kills

Per Glide Magazine:

The Kills’ first album since 2016’s Ash & Ice is a collection of B-Sides and rarities chronicling the duo’s early career. Little Bastards is a lengthy collection of rare Kills tracks that shows off the band’s inventiveness, grit, and passion. With twenty songs dating from the band’s 2002 inception through 2009, covers and original songs left on the cutting floor, Little Bastards captures Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince at their raw, fiery best.
