Sleeper albums, in that some albums have recently been released with little to no fanfare at all. The hidden gems. “Death from Above 1979” released an album in 2004, while on tour the 2 of them grew to hate each other. Once that tour was over, they quit. Now 10 years later they’re back together and released “The Physical World” it hit me with a solid punch to the gut! I’d never heard of them before, had no clue this was their 2nd album. Man it’s great though! It will be one of those albums I can’t stop listening to.
Also recently released was the debut album by “Royal Blood” very similar to DFA1979. Two guys from the UK. This album also came out of nowhere for me. Really good & an album I can’t stop listening to! Don’t be fooled when you search “Royal Blood” there’s a few groups on iTunes that use the same name. This album is self titled.
Those 2 albums are on constant repeat on whatever device I’m listening to. I’m still hung up on In Flames “Siren Charms” album & Queens of the Stone Age’s “…Like Clockwork” all while squeezing in any Foo Fighters album & Big Wreck. Also waiting for Foo Fighters, Into Eternity, Third Ion, & one of the Prince albums on Tuesday. Still listening to my brother’s Room 333 “Red Dragon” album available on iTunes.
I know the album’s done. Not released yet, I hope this tune makes the cut, might be a stand alone single?
You wouldn’t believe me if I told you how many Prince albums I own……………13 full albums and 6 other songs.
Gotta love the classic Prince songs!
