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.
Machine Gun Kelly – ‘Mainstream Sellout’
‘Mainstream Sellout’ is driven by a relatable sense of angst and its outsider anthems will continue to speak to the millions who see Machine Gun Kelly as the saviour of punk rock. For better or worse, Baker makes no attempts to convert those who still doubt him, though. ‘Mainstream Sellout’ finds its author still refusing to play by the old rules, though it inevitably lacks the shock of the new that made …’Downfall’ so exciting. Still, it seems that, like the pop-punk revival itself, Machine Gun Kelly won’t run out of steam any time soon.
Dream Widow Foo Fighters
Dropping like a two-ton stone on Friday (March 25), Dream Widow is a companion to the Foos’ full-length feature film, Studio 666. It’s a throw-back to the heavy metal of old, dragged from the belly of the beasts that are Metallica and Motorhead, two of Grohl’s influences, with a touch of Ministry and Van Halen.
SZNZ: Spring EP – Weezer
Per AV Club:
This EP finds Weezer safely in its comfort zone, leaving a big challenge for the rest of the EPs in the series. But for now, fans can still enjoy the fact that Weezer can sometimes—when the right effort is made—sound genuinely great.
