Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of February 15, 2019.  Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff and/or contributors.


– Featured Release –

Blushing

Copeland: Blushing
Genre: Indie-Pop/Emo/Rock
Label: Tooth & Nail

Copeland have never been the flashiest band.  They prefer to retreat into soft-spoken verses and piano-laden indie rock, employing experimental structuring and romantically-inclined whims.  After five albums, it’s telling that Copeland has been able to evoke such excitement out of the few songs they’ve streamed in advance of Blushing, which is currently postured to – quite possibly – eclipse the beauty of their previous discography.  It’s not that it’s necessarily taking a different approach, but there’s something about songs like ‘Pope’ that feel refreshingly original; it glows with the soft embers of spellbinding romanticism as well as an underlying sense of urgency.  If the entire album can match that kind of beauty, then we’re all undoubtedly in for a treat.

TwigTW

The title track from the Fratelli album sounds good (a bit of the Blue Nile in there). We'll see if the rest of the album holds up.

TheSupernatural
02.12.19
Copeland's Ixora got me through a good chunk of college. My hopes might be too high but I'm ecstatic about a new album

Scheumke

Hayes Carll and Ryan Bingham will probably deliver a couple of decent enough country albums.

spatulagrass

BlazinBlitzer

Lol yeah especially for Motorpsycho who still don't have The Tower streamed anywhere. Most of the tracks are on YouTube now, but the whole album was really hard to find for a while.

Xenorazr

All over that Avantasia

SandorClegane

I gave Ben Shemie a listen. If you're a fan of BMSR/Tobacco, you might dig it.

WatchItExplode
02.15.19
I was just coming to say that Ben Shemie is pretty sweet. Listen to t/t anyway to get a flavor. I dig.
