The Truth About Music

"What's hot, what's not, and whats next in pop music"

The Truth About Music Radar: June 2nd, 2009

Sorry that this post comes so late in the day but I have finally begun working again after a long stretch of full time writing. This week presents a lot of new music that I am anxious to check out. The first thing on my list of things to check out is the sophomore release from Paolo Nutini. Coming off his first album, “These Streets,” which was really solid, “Sunny Side Up,” will feature some new material from the Scottish singer. Check this one out, I think you’ll enjoy it and if not, let me know why.

The next album that I’m anxious to get is Taking Back Sunday’s 4th studio album “New Again.” I am getting ready to see them on their upcoming summer tour and possibly again as they perform a few shows with punk lords Blink 182. Although I cannot say that I’m a fan of the band, everyone seems to enjoy their live show and I can’t wait to check them out.

Among the albums I am not so excited to check out are Dave Matthews new album “Big Whiskey And The Groogrux King,” simply because I am not such a fan of his album. Generally enjoying his singles I generally cannot get into the album (and isn’t his voice just annoying?). Also I can’t say I’m looking forward to hearing a “b-sides,” album from Franz Ferdinand called “Blood,” which has a few remixes from songs on “Tonight.”

Finally if you’ve already picked up these albums are don’t find anything interesting in here so far there are quite a few other albums out today. They include “Uplifter,” by 311, “In Shallow Seas We Sail,” by Emery and “Hot N’ Heavy,” by Drop Dead, Gorgeous. Enjoy your evening and I hope you find something new to listen to this week.
