Fresh X: Stream Alt-J's "This Is All Yours" Corey O'Brien |

Fresh X: Stream Alt-J's

Once again the future does one thing really good: it makes it so we don't have to wait for the future to hear new music. Though Alt-J's new album isn't due out until next week, the future has made it possible for you to hear it now.

The downside is the stream is on Spotify, so by the time you actually hear any of the album it may actually be next Tuesday and you can just buy it. Spotify works okay on my phone, but I only open it on my desktop when I feel like crashing my computer.

If you manage to hear it, let us know how it is.

Alt-J will be performing at The Complex on October 27th. Get your tickets for that show here.

Fresh X: Weezer "Back to the Shack" Corey O'Brien |
07/21/2014 | Filed In: Weezer | Everything Will Be Alright in the End | Fresh X | New Music | Back to the Shack

Fresh X: Weezer

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.

Fresh X: Interpol Drop New Track, Listen Here Corey O'Brien |

Fresh X: Interpol Drop New Track, Listen Here

Interpol have been missing in my musical mind for some time now.  What I always thought was stiff dance music, much like their obvious influence of Joy Division, they have been missed in my music consciousness. Though they released an album in 2010 it feels like a decade since we have heard something great from this band. 

They have lost their longtime bass player and have added a new keyboardist, but that is all behind the curtain stuff.  Paul Banks is still taking the reins and even playing bass here and for it we are left with the first Interpol song I have wanted to dance to since "Evil."

They have announced their new album in a statement on June 5th.  It will be called, "El Pintor" and released on September 9th. Here's the statement from the band:

"Hello Friends,

It’s been a long time coming but we’re finally ready to share some new album news. We’d like to announce the release of our upcoming new album, El Pintor. We wrote & recorded the bulk of the album in 2013 in NYC and finished mixing it in London during the early part of this year. We’re very excited to share the album with all of you. The album was recorded at Electric Lady Studios & Atomic Sound by Mr James Brown and mixed by Mr Alan Moulder at Assault & Battery studios. We had a lot of fun making this record and can’t wait for you to hear it.

The album will be released on September 9th on Matador (North, South and Central America) and September 8th in all other territories by [PIAS]/CO-OP. You can pre-order the album here.

We also took the opportunity to capture some background film footage of the recording of the album. A first in our history. You can view a clip here.

All the best, Interpol "

You can pre-order the album here.

Welcome back, Interpol. 

Here is the first track from "El Pintor", "All The Rage."

Fresh X: Morrissey "World Peace is None of Your Business" Album Stream Corey O'Brien |
07/09/2014 | Filed In: Fresh X | Morrissey | New Music | Album Stream

Fresh X: Morrissey

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.
