Daymnnnnn, Weezer will be dropping their 10th studio album on September 30th called, "Everything Will Be Alright." We have been the victims of teasing the third time Rick Ocasek from The Cars has entered the studio with the boys from Weezer and it has always produced some of the finest Weezer - The Green and Blue albums.
Today they released, "Back to the Shack." Riff heavy and a slight anthemy, it's great sing along Weezer and a self-proclaimed throwback. I am not sure this is a good thing, though. What 90s band has really mad a huge splash recently by pointing out how good things used to be. The crop has not been on fire as of late. Coldplay's album is a dullard's delight. Jane's Addiction gives it a shot once in a while to no one's amusement. NIN's last one tanked though most people really wanted to like it (NIN is probably just a great live band at this point). Les Claypool's stuff falls into the same category. Scott Weiland, well, he put out that Christmas album - something more akin to a Vegas act than Rock N' Roller.
Weezer, aside from Pinkerton, has always been somewhat light and fun and you know a Weezer song when you hear it, but declaring self-awareness ane reminiscing of days gone by may not be the way to put your best foot forward.
I am going to reserve judgment until I hear the entire album. I always want Weezer to be champions.
Tonight, at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, music history will be made as the first ever Alternative Press Music Awards will be presented to the world.

Moz fans unite! Morrissey will release his 10th solo album on July 15th, but as the future refuses to allow things to be released on their actual date you can stream the new album early over at NPR.
Of course, Morrissey played Kingsbury Hall just a couple of months ago after making up for a cancelled date the previous year due to illness: his or his mother's depending on the source you talked to. He didn't play too many Smith's songs, which seemed to bother my buddy who had never seen Morrissey before, but felt he had seen a landmark rather than just show so he wasn't too disappointed.
Enjoy the stream.
From 1999 and 7, yes seven, album later, Rise Against are about to release "The Black Market" next Tuesday, July 15th you can officially purchase the album, but if you can't wait head over to iTunes radio and check it right now.
Their music slightly rusty, but in a good way and literary in verse. They are named after a keyboard shortcut. Their first single, "Fitzpleasure" is based on a novel called "Last Exit to Brooklyn" that isn't exactly family-friendly - nor mainstream. Somehow, beyond all those reasons many people found Alt-J to be something unique and interesting, which is not an easy feat these days. Pop music has taken over like weeds in the modern rock's garden.
Alt-J is following up their fantastic album, "An Awesome Wave" with "This Is All Yours" on September 22nd, which you can pre-order here.
