A walk in the Park, Volume 291

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: Today you’re getting a tune from the first, and so far, only album by the Los Angeles based “supergroup” containing Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana) & John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) & Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss).  In November 2009, THEM CROOKED VULTURES released their debut disc, which spawned two singles, one of which, “New Fang,” won them a Grammy Award for “Best Hard Rock Performance.”  The second single is the song I dig more, it’s the featured spin, so hit the pseudo “play” button and knock back a delicious “MIND ERASER, NO CHASER!”

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: The song I’m sharing for your listening pleasure & edification today comes to us courtesy of a band who’s been making waves on the other side of the Atlantic ocean for the past couple years, but have really just started to break through in North America over the past six months or so.  It’s ROYAL BLOOD, a couple Brits (23 & 25 years old) who released their “Out Of The Black” EP earlier this year, and are unleashing their self-titled debut album on August 25th.  The amount of sound these two dudes crank out with a bass and a drum kit is incredible, and this lead single has me stoked to hear the full-length disc.  Royal Blood is on tour right now with Alternative legends, Pixies, and will be in Edmonton on October 6th for an all-ages show, details here.  Now, familiarize yourself with a duo whose stock is ...

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: Today we’re going to hit some old school vibes with a song from the album that almost made this band a household name in the mid 90′s, The OFFSPRING.  They’re kicking off their “Punk Rock Summer Nationals” tour tomorrow, and on this tour the band will be playing the legendary “Smash” album in its entirety, along with tons of other new & classic Offspring songs!  When you hit their official website, you’ll also see a few videos of some cover songs originally done by other iconic punk groups like Bad Religion & Pennywise.  They’re working on a brand new record right now, but in the meantime hit the imaginary “play” button for the classic, “BAD HABIT!”

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: This weekend you’re getting new music with my blog posts.  Yesterday it was new stuff from one of America’s greatest Alt-Rock bands, Weezer, and today the feature song is from one of the greatest Canadian Alt-Bands, SLOAN.  For 22 years Sloan has been churning out their music, with each of their albums taking on a feel & personality of its own.  Their new disc, “Commonwealth,” due this Fall, is a double-album with each of the four sides of the package written by an individual band member.  They’ll be embarking on a coast-to-coast Canadian tour in support of the record as well.  Click “play” for the new single, “KEEP SWINGING (DOWNTOWN).”

A walk in the Park, Volume 287

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: Sometimes it’s hard for me to explain how pumped up I get for certain new music releases, but this week was especially exciting for me because the new song came out from a band that I think is easily one of the best Rock acts of the past 20 years, WEEZER!  Their brand new album, “Everything Will Be Alright In The End,” is going to be released on September 30th, and there’s speculation that this may be the final record from the band, although I hope that’s not the case.  For the third time, they’ve brought Ric Ocasek (The Cars) on board as producer, and if the lead single is any indication, this should be a throwback to band’s earlier sound: fun, goofy, self-deprecating, etc.  Hit the make-believe “play” button and roll “BACK TO THE SHACK.”
