New music? At first glance, I’m seeing a lot of older stuff I’m somewhat interested in hearing; Foo Fighters, Weezer, Björk, Marilyn Manson… We’ll see though, it’s gonna take some time to wade through the rest of the bull–ish. Welcome to this weeks episode of New Music Friday.
Arrows – Foo Fighters
“I only write hits” I could tell in the first few seconds that this was something reminiscent of a time that once was. This song is great, it’s got this dark Gary Neuman feel… and the chorus is a typical Dave Grohl style thing.
Misbehaving – Labrinth
This song is pretty interesting, but it really makes the list because of the little breakdown in the middle. Reminded me of what you would think a church is like down south. With no A/C… in the summer… just sweating, and wishing you weren’t at church.
Beach Boys – Weezer
Ha! This guitar riff is so quirky… I thought this was Cake. I hate the Beach Boys though, I’d say that my favorite Weezer song about an old band was in the Garage, when they talked about Kiss. As far as the whole “nerd” thing talking about hip-hop stuff… I think it’s a little tired. What I would really love to hear is a new Rentals album.
The Last Of The Real Ones – Fall Out Boy
For a minute I thought there wasn’t really anything too terrible in todays mix, then this happened. Maybe I only remember the one radio song they had, but when did Fall Out Boy become an all out pop group? I saw them at the Shelter once and I swore they sounded like Bad Religion. It’s amazing how time works sometimes. This song is super generic… no Sir, I don’t like it.
Out of It – The Story So Far
I don’t know much about this band, but this is also pretty generic.
You’re The Best Thing About Me – U2 Vs. Kygo – U2, Kygo
I think this may win the garbage of the week… I couldn’t even listen to the entire song. It was like Bono was singing a strobe light to an epileptic ear.
Bust Down – Trippie Redd
Gross of the week. This is shit.
