New Release Round-Up 08-04-23
Teenage Wrist - Still Love - Epitaph
Over the past eight years Teenage Wrist have continually evolved their sound, a process that’s peaking with their third full-length, Still Love. Reaching new heights in both scope and execution, the album sees the duo—Marshall Gallagher (vocalist, guitarist, bassist) and Anthony Salazar (drums, vocalist, percussion)—producing the album themselves to handcraft their most expansive collection of songs to date from the ground up. The result is a self-realized collection of songs that saw the band borrowing vintage gear, bringing in friends in the form of members from 311 vocalist/turntablist Doug “SA” Martinez and Softcult and incorporating tasteful pop sensibilities to craft a collection of songs that redefines the band’s sound while staying true to their guitar-driven roots.
Vince Gill and Paul Franklin - Sweet Memories (The Music of Ray Price & The Cherokee Cowboys) - MCA Nashville
Vince Gill and Paul Franklin team up for a special tribute to Ray Price & The Cherokee Cowboys. The album includes 11 tracks. From the foreword from Country ICON, Bill Anderson, they have taken their admiration for Ray Price to the next level… the students honoring the teacher with one of the finest true-country tributes of all time. It’s more than a tribute, though…it’s Vince’s and Paul’s way of saying “thank you” to one of the masters who helped define the genre while influencing them greatly. There’s no doubt in my mind that Ray would be as thrilled by this collection as Vince was watching him on that hot Georgia night years ago
Bob Marley & The Wailers - Africa Unite - Island
The album, Africa Unite, portrays two worlds colliding from a whole new generation of Afro-fused musicians reinterpreting Bob Marley's classic songs. As the name suggests, unity is at the heart of the album, and that is without a doubt the focus. Featuring Nutty O, Winky D, Rema, Skip Marley, Ami Faku, Tiwa Savage, Afro B, Teni, Oxlade, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, Arya Starr and Patoranking.
