Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of August 10, 2018.  Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff or contributors.  As our staff post reviews of these albums, links will appear below the artwork (if we remember…) so that you can read about the release, see how we scored it, and more.

Additionally, we’d like to take this time to welcome back Channing Freeman, an emeritus who has rejoined the staff rank effective immediately.


Featured Release

Nearer My God [Explicit]

Foxing: Nearer My God
Genre: Emo/Post-Rock/Indie-Rock
Label: Triple Crown Records

Foxing made a huge splash in 2013 with the heavily emo influenced The Albatross, and their 2015 follow-up – Dealer – saw them dabble in atmospheric indie-rock very successfully.  Their third LP, Nearer My God, appears to be aimed for even bigger and better things.  The songs released thus far point to this being their coming of age album, an epic and almost arena-ready indie rocker.  There’s never been a better time to get into Foxing.  And for those who already are, you likely don’t need to be sold on the band’s credentials as one of the most relevant up-and-coming artists in the genre.  Saddle up, this is going to be one of the most talked about albums of the month.

Listen to “Nearer My God”:

Week as a whole is pretty pointless for me, but Foxing will be huge.

Divaman

Yuck.

don't discount the coolness of El Ten Eleven

Maybe the new Primal Fear will be something above generic recycled trad metal, that would be nice lots of older metal bands have been releasing great stuff this year

Also curious to see Nicki Minaj actually release something, I thought she had become irrelevant (a bit unfairly so, even if I didn't like any of her own material)

New ERRA is also out this week

August keeps delivering absolutely nothing. What a dry month. And what happened with Doof's comment about the Minaj record? lol

Dewi, that’s a brave cover from Nicki - she’s got worse legs than me

I guess Iglooghost has a release. Didn't like his last album very much, but he's still on the radar. There's just nothing outside of that, though. July was like that too tbh.

DrGonzo1937

When Nicki Minaj probably the best out of the lot you know it’s a bad week for music

weird, it is out today, I just can't find a stream for it anywhere.

a really dull week for music this week

Alright, let's see which one has the cover I like the most and I'll listen to that one in... Three years.
