Hear the saucy voice of Stewie Griffin, Peter Griffin, Brian Griffin (and more!) sing you back into the middle of the 20th century.  Family Guy’s genius creator (and voice of more characters that I can keep track of) takes you away from your stupid job or fluorescent-lit-classroom to a jazzy club with suits and dresses, dim and heavy with second hand smoke.  Fall in love with your headphones–you won’t be able to help it.

Blink 182 stops jerking us around and finally releases some new music, as ONE band, instead of multiple different ones.  You probably will only be able to hear Angels and Airwaves at first, but stick around.  There is this magical moment where the album becomes a Blink 182 album, and it will surprise you.  Not as consistently good as their self titled album before they broke up FOREVER, but the songs on here are literally some of the best songs they’ve ever written, in any decade, with any band.

Primus and Anthrax and Bush, Oh MY!  Alice Cooper, Blondie, and Staind complete the team for this BLAST FROM THE PAST release week.  The sounds may be different, and the hair lines receding, but these are some of the best bands of the last 3 decades all coming out with new music at the same time.  Coincidence?   Why, yes.  Yes it is.  Deal with it.

New Song Report 1

  • Angels and Airwaves release the video for their new song Anxiety, from their forthcoming album Love Part 2.  Check out the video below.


  • Miranda Lambert releases her new single Baggage Claim on August 16, ahead of her pun-tastic fourth album titled Four the Record.  You can pick up the new song on Amazon or itunes.
  • Drake is back with the Single Headlines, the first single off his upcoming release “Take Care.”
  • [easyazon-image-link asin="B005E63SK4" alt="What You Want" src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41wQw63KFYL._SL75_.jpg" align="right" width="75" height="75"]Evanescence is apparently still a band, and has released a rocking new single entitled What You Want.  From hearing snippets of songs from the album, and considering how good What you Want is, this album definitely sounds like a big step forward for Evanescence.  I was dissapointed by their second album The Open Door, but I’m pretty excited for this new one, due to be released in October.  Check out the new track [easyazon-link asin="B005E63SK4"]here[/easyazon-link], and stay tuned for a review of the full song.
  • Jewel has posted the dixie land inspired Super Market song, off her upcoming album The Merry Goes ‘Round, which is an album aimed at a slightly younger audience than she usually releases for.  Check out the snippet here.
  • Hear the track Starlight from Rachel Yamagata’s new album (due October 11).
  • Spin.com has the latest Jane’s Addiction track.  You can check it out here.
  • And finally, Coldplay unveiled another new track from their highly anticipated upcoming album.  ”Charlie Brown,” is another uptempo number, and you can’t help but tap your toes.  Check out the song below (From Jimmy Kimmel live).

Which album are you looking forward to the most?  Let us know in the comments!

Blink 182 – Up All Night

[easyazon-image-link asin="B005CY8R7C" alt="Up all Night" src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61Bs0f5RW-L._SL160_.jpg" align="left" width="160" height="160"]

Blink 182 finally release new music from their upcoming album.  Was it worth the wait?

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything new from the collective Blink 182 members.  Eight years is a long absence (since 2003′s self titled album).  Listening to their discography in order shows a slowly maturing band really finding their sound and defining their style.  When the band broke up and the members formed new bands (Angels and Airwaves and +44 respectively), they continued to grow as musicians, but separately.

Up all Night features some too-much-caffeine drum work up front, and then the guitars kick in and its pretty heavy stuff.  This song is the fun kind of vocal trade-off between Delonge and Hoppus, with a soft, snare-less prechorus that sounds way too much like Angels and Airwaves.

And that’s where a lot of people may have trouble.  This doesn’t sound like Blink 182 so much as it sounds like the members from Angels and Airwaves got together and wrote a song, bringing their own style.  But is that really a problem?  Who can say?  A single does not define an album, and it is way too early to tell what the entire work of their upcoming album will be like, what kind of message and style it will broadcast.

If I had to pick a Blink song to relate this too, I’d say it sounds the most like Easy Target from their self titled album.  Missing from this song is the because-we-can artistic streak from their self titled album, missing as well is the easy, care-free we’re in high school, LETS PARTY vibe from their earlier works.

That said, it’s a damn catchy song, and the members of Blink 182 are amazing musicians, and extremely talented song writers, so I can’t say this is a bad song.  I can say that I’m looking forward to their new album, Neighborhoods, tentatively scheduled for a late September Release.
