How’s your week been? Hopefully you had some good times, which will be even better with the inclusion of The Offspring‘s first new album in 9 years, Let the Bad Times Roll. You can also keep rocking out with the latest full length from Greta Van Fleet. We also recommend you check out the new album from genre-defying songwriter Elise Davis (check out our review of the album).
In EP news, we have a new one from site friends GospelBeach, and one from pop-punk group Waxflower, whose singles we’ve shared with you over some of the last NMFs.
There’s been a slew of new songs from 90’s/early 2000s bands this year (Tonic, The Wallflowers, Lifehouse), and joining them are MXPX and the Barenaked Ladies, as they announced the new dates for their tour with Toad the Wet Sprocket and the Gin Blossoms for 2022. 80’s punks Naked Raygun dropped their first new song in many a moon, and the Black Keys are back with the first song from their upcoming blues covers album.
Some artists dropping second singles from their upcoming releases are Jose Gonzalez, girl in red, Liz Phair, Cold Moon and Lucy Dacus. Dessa shared the fourth song from her monthly singles series, and World Watch act Vinok have another new song for us to all enjoy. Oh, and if you haven’t heard Mick Jagger‘s spiky new single with Dave Grohl, it’s a refreshing burst of rock energy – but sadly only on YouTube right now.
Some of the new artists we’ve got for you this week to discover are Tommy Newport, Dräger, braveweather, Amends, Carolesdaughter and Rina Sawayama (with a feature from Elton John).
