Today we are closing out April and the first third of 2021. Have you found any of your Albums of the Year yet? If not, perhaps one of today’s newest releases can be your first – as there are a lot!
If you’re in the mood for some rambunctious Celtic punk, then the new Dropkick Murphys album will be up your alley. Two other new albums that will bring a solid dose of loud guitars and introspective lyrics are coming in from Norway’s girl in red and Atlanta’s Manchester Orchestra. For the power pop fans out there, the latest from Scotland’s Teenage Fanclub has all the Big Star vibes. And for some alt-rock leaning singer songwriter music, Australia’s Amy Shark has a new one for us, and Canada’s Fences has an EP that should fill that gap. There’s also EPs from Authority Zero and Bhi Bhiman worth checking out!
I was officially excited when the Counting Crows dropped their first new single in 7 years this week, along with the announcement of a new EP coming next month. And I was officially perplexed but intrigued when I learned that Willow Smith was coming out with her debut pop-punk single, assisted by (you guessed it) Travis Barker. Where does that guy find the time???
If you follow our site, you know we’re fans of Australian pop-rocker Imogen Clarke, who is dropping a new Colin Hay-assisted single this week, and previous Bad Ass Break-Out rapper McKinley Dixon, who is dropping the fourth new song from his next album. Machine Gun Kelly has a dropped another single to keep his train rolling along, and a little lady named BILLIE EILISH has also released a brand new song and announced her next album. Garbage have the second song from their next album out, and The Lumineers and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are both back with new songs.
Some of the new artists we’re spinning this week are Sophie Powers, Wilder, 7evin7ins, Sabriel and NoMBe.
