It has been a long while, but I’m back! Here’s some of what I’ve enjoyed from today’s new releases!
This album had me absolutely floored. I’m not quite sure what I expected from it, but what I got was a rocking set of punk inspired jambs that never stop for a breather. “The Gap” kicks things off with a bang, and once you let Potty Mouth‘s brand of hard driving alt rock take you over, you won’t want it to end. “The Spins” (below) is another album highlight, brimming with chunky riffs and, blistering rhythms, and a melody that evokes some of those great punk bands you grew up rocking out to, but the band never crosses into hackneyed territory. Rock and roll is alive and well on Hell Bent. Check it out here.
Hide is as adventurous as it is exhilarating, filled with ambitious electronic experimentation and dance hall pop. There are some notable collaborations on the disc, namely Sir Paul McCartney and Youth (‘Out Of Sight’), Theophilus London (‘All The Girls (Around The World)‘), Sam Sparro (‘Glow In The Dark’), Tommy Lee (‘Raw’), and Peter Frampton (‘The Beat’), but the record never feels like a compilation of revolving guest stars. The Bloody Beetroots are the stars here, and shining is something they do best. Pick it up here.
