Looks like there will be a new Japanese Breakfast album this summer. Japanese Breakfast is Michelle Zauner's new project. You may know her as the lead singer of Little Big League.

Japanese Breakfast Hint at New Album, Announce Tour

http://www.spin.com/2017/04/japanese...our-new-album/

Quote:
Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner recently went on the Talkhouse Music Podcast to sit down with Rachel Goswell of Slowdive. While the half-hour episode finds the two chatting about their relationships with bandmates and the upcoming tour the two bands have scheduled for May, Zauner dropped some not-so-subtle hints about her band’s upcoming second album. “We have a new record coming out in July, and there’s a lot of Juno on that record,” she say in the clip, in reference to the famed Roland Juno-106 analog synthesizer.
The embedded video below is from her previous album.

Steve Perry WILL perform with Journey at tonight’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony

What's more, RUSH bassist Geddy Lee will apparently perform with Yes

New Redd Kross! I am excite!

What does the future hold for Redd Kross; with the addition of Dale Crover on drums could this signal a more active period ahead for the band?
Yes, definitely! We’ve already started work on a new record. It is tentatively titled Octavia. It will be our eighth record. Dale is a big inspiration. He is a real working musician that has never retooled or changed his course. His enthusiasm for the band has been a great catalyst already. Look out for much more activity from us in the future.

Both solid albums but I have to give the edge to the Aussies. Great music and lyrics showing maturity as a band while still sticking to their past style. The Flatliners on the other hand seems over produced and they have lost a lot of their trademark roughness in the music and Chris Cresswell's vocals.
Love love love the new Flatliners record (although I agree it's a tad over produced)! Haven't checked out Smith Street Band's yet though. Will do it later.

Flogging Molly also released a new track from their upcoming album yesterday but the YouTube video isn't available right now for some reason. Nothing amazing, but definitely nice to hear Flogging Molly making new music again. Been six years since their last album so I'm pretty excited to get back into them.

Steve Perry was inducted last night with Journey but did not sing. Disappointed.

Mr. Vedder made about the nicest comment on a good marriage I have ever heard:

"When I think about high altitudes, I think about my wife, Jill. Honey, I thought you were sitting down in front. But, it's so important, you know, especially if that kite gets way higher in the air, you really have to trust the person holding the line. And that person has to be loyal and believe in you and have to have the strength to reel you back, so my wife, Jill, I thank you. And ... I'm looking forward to all our beautiful days on ground together. And I'm glad I get to hold the chord for you and you get to soar as you do."

Really looking forward to watching the whole show when it airs at the end of the month, especially Peral Jam performing. Played 3 songs I love.

I'e said it before, but the RRHOF is bull####. And Jeff Ament's shirt full of artists who aren't in the hall is just further proof of that.

What can be done when they only induct 4 bands a year? We all can think of a ton of worthy bands that didn't make Ament's shirt.

My understanding is that the RRHOF is a self-perpetuating machine because once an act gets inducted, they automatically become a voter. And being human, they end up voting for their peers and buddies. And I don't doubt there is probably some horse trading going on too -- if you vote for my buddy this year, I will vote for your buddy next year or similar shenanigans. But in the end, I don't think it matters that much because the RRHOF is not really trying to target the indie rock snob. They are casting a wide net so that's the casual mainstream popular music top-40 radio listener. I visited the RRHOF a few years ago and enjoyed it very much because I didn't go in expecting my particular musical taste to be represented.

Steve Miller did a scathing interview about the RRHOF on Howard Stern. Look for it.

I think it is fine for what it is. Hard to argue about most of the inductees, and there are many that were more influential than popular. You can tell it is a big deal for the artists - some bands re-unite after many bitter years apart.

It's odd because it is simultaneously irrelevant, totally misdirected (rock has nothing to do with it at all) and without a doubt the least meaningful and most ridiculed HOF around. It makes the Canadian sports HOF of the HHOF look like they are strict by comparison.

Yet the same artists, and fans, who constantly ridicule it somehow get upset when deserving artists don't make it.


In fact, it's a lot like the Grammys.

The The has released their first single in 15 years and it is excellent and sounds like it could have come off of Mind Bomb or Dusk. The song is a tribute to his late brother Andrew, who The The fans will know as Andy Dog. Johnny Marr, Zeke Manyika and James Eller played on the record. More information in the link below. Can't find any recordings of the single on Youtube but you can hear the song on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music show which is archived on the BBC website. Details in the link.

Like every Gorillaz album, you'll either hate it on first listen and never come back to it, like a lot of it be unsure about the rest, or love everything because Daman Albarn is a god.

Gorillaz - Humanz is now on it's 3rd play through today for me. I'm the second one but this album is reallllllly growing on me fast. Wow.

Yeah, I'm not digging the new Gorillaz. I listened to the first third and just couldn't continue.

I am enjoying the new Feist though.
