New Music Friday Playlist – August 16, 2019

We’ve finally been graced with a lighter album week, which thrills me since I haven’t even listened to all the albums from last week yet. We are getting the latest LPs from Frank Turner and The Hold Steady (see my review of this one here), as well as the album from Malawian busker-turned fighter for albino rights Lazarus (who received production help from one of our favs The Very Best). Nathan Gray (of BoySetsFire) has a new split EP also out today with Jesse Barnett.

The legendary Replacements are coming out with a collection of alternate versions, demos and other odds & ends from theirĀ Don’t Tell a Soul sessions, and today they dropped an alternate version of “Achin’ to Be”. This should please their hardcore following.

This week, you’ll also be able to enjoy new jams from 88rising (who have their second Head in the Clouds festival in LA on Saturday), previous Check This group Buyepongo, indie surf rockers Allah-Las, Michael Kiwanuka, and the Highwomen‘s reimagining of the classic tune “Highwayman”.
