Ghettoblaster’s Friday Roll Out! Albums Out Today 3/24/17

Another week has flown by and as everyone hits the reset button getting over last week’s SXSW, we’re all inundated with a multitude of emails and phone calls. It’s another week of avoiding people you really don’t want to speak to and playing catch-up with the real world you didn’t want to deal with. That’s not to say the hypocrisy … Continue reading Ghettoblaster’s Friday Roll Out! Albums Out Today 3/24/17

Ghettoblaster Friday Roll Out! Album Dropped 3/17/17

It’s pretty redundant to say music is ubiquitous because, well, you know, everyone’s heard at least one song in their lifetime. There’s a lot of unoriginal, reworked styles of music and plundered melodies that some artists blatantly lift from others and call their own. It’s the same with television and films, as the idiot box turns box office smashes into … Continue reading Ghettoblaster Friday Roll Out! Album Dropped 3/17/17

Ghettoblaster Friday Roll Out! Albums Dropping Today 3/10/17

I’ve been procrastinating, and the fact that the Afghan Whigs dropped that single “Demon In Profile” didn’t help my current situation. Instead of listening to the slew of albums in front of me I kept hitting that repeat button again and again. I kept questioning, “Is this album going to be better than the last? I hope so. Please don’t let … Continue reading Ghettoblaster Friday Roll Out! Albums Dropping Today 3/10/17

Ghettoblaster’s Friday Roll Out! New Albums Released 3/3/17

Another Friday Roll Out(!) and what else is there? Hectic week, annoyances, and running into people I don’t want to see which is just plain ol’ happenstance. But I think about Thaione Davis and a line he spit where he said “Music is my salvation, it’s the minimum, it’s how I cope. It’s how I raise my folk.” So yeah, … Continue reading Ghettoblaster’s Friday Roll Out! New Albums Released 3/3/17

Friday Roll Out! New Music Dropped 2/24/17

I’ve been hesitating. It’s probably because I just can’t get enough of the latest album by A Tribe Called Quest. Listening to a podcast today I wasn’t even thinking their album but then Michael Rapaport brought up the group’s performance on the Grammys and the loss of a key member, so I had to play it. Again. The maturity of … Continue reading Friday Roll Out! New Music Dropped 2/24/17

Friday Roll Out! New Albums Out 2/17/17

It’s another Friday and this week a few friends have expressed how there’s a feeling of  dread when it comes to rock music. It’s difficult to argue that point considering just about everything you find on the radio is bland and has a mass pop appeal to it. But it’s something that always comes up and is a never-ending cycle. But … Continue reading Friday Roll Out! New Albums Out 2/17/17

Friday Roll Out! Your New Music 2/10/17

It’s another Friday and here we are again. The more things change, the more they stay the same. I keep listening to the constant complaint of those who want something better but you know what? You actually have to get up off your ass and work for it! No one’s going to hand you anything. Every week I receive a … Continue reading Friday Roll Out! Your New Music 2/10/17

Friday Roll Out! New Albums Released Today 2/3/17

There are those moments when time seems to slip right through our fingers and at others, moves at a snail’s pace leaving nothing behind but a slimed trail. This week there are a number of artists that try to drown out the noise of most things political, but not everyone though. Seems every week there’s an artist recording and releasing … Continue reading Friday Roll Out! New Albums Released Today 2/3/17

Friday Roll Out. What You Should Be Listening To…1/27/17

New this Friday are a number of releases that are sure to pull you by the ear or possibly any other part of your body (I’ll refrain from making any sexual innuendos.) 2017 is looking  pretty good musically, if not politically, with releases by artists that are kicking the mainstream right up the ass. While last year tensions ran high, … Continue reading Friday Roll Out. What You Should Be Listening To…1/27/17
