MELISSA ETHERIDGE- FEARLESS LOVE
Happy to see Miss Etheridge is healthy and continuing to release records. Sincerely. But her cliche-ridden tunes ran out of gas about 15 years ago, me thinks. Full album download for $3.99. Good deal if you care.
PETER FRAMPTON- THANK YOU, MR. CHURCHILL
Umpteenth release from Pete, this one features guest spots from his son Julian, The Funk Brothers (?), and members of Soundgarden (?). (And Paul Sorvino, Tom Smothers, Buddy Greco, Punky Meadows and Doc Severinsen.) Actually, Peter Frampton's recent releases have been solid affairs. Check this one out---http://www.amazon.com/Frampton-ORIGINAL-RECORDING-REISSUED-TRACKS/dp/B0015RCUT6/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1272367477&sr=1-5
GOGOL BORDELLO- TRANS-CONTINENTAL HUSTLE
This band's fusion of all music known to man, usually gives me the creeps. But I will admit, I am more than a bit curious about this new release, thanks to the production of Rick Rubin.
HOLE- NOBODY'S DAUGHTER
Though billed as Hole, I'm pretty sure the only remaining member is its leader, Courtney Love. "Live Through This" seems to be the one for many people, but I found "Celebrity Skin" to be the better record. ("Malibu," "Boys On The Radio" and "Heaven Tonight" are still in my regular rotation after all these years.) This new one, "Nobody's Daughter" doesn't stray far from anything Love has done in the past, and I'm still on the fence about whether that's good or bad.
JESSE MALIN & THE ST. MARKS' SOCIAL- LOVE IT TO LIFE
Seemingly everybody's favorite songwriter but mine, Jesse Malin's new release features 10 new songs. The guy's got heart, I'll say that. And I know I've tried. I'll say that, too.
ANDERS OSBORNE- AMERICAN PATCHWORK
New Orleans (by way of Sweden) guitarist, Osborne's new release features Stanton Moore, Robert Walter, and Corrosion Of Conformity's Pepper Keenan on what could be Osborne's best record of his long and rocky career. Swampy, hard, and melodic funk and blues.
