Fresh X: Weezer Share Another Track From Their New Album

The new Weezer album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" will be out on October 7th, so I am guessing we will get a full stream of the album sometime next week. Until them the band has shared another track. This is the closest thing I have head to the "Blue Album" and it makes plenty of sense since Rick Ocasek produced that album as well. Two minutes and fourty-nine seconds of what could work as a sequel to "Buddy Holly" in spirit.

Enjoy.

Fresh X: Radiohead's Thom Yorke Release Surprise New Album

Thom Yorke is a sly guy. Last week he was teasing us by posting a short video of mysterious, white vinyl on a turntable. This led many to speculate that a new Radiohead album was in the cards.

That isn't what was in the cards. The cards of the day and Thom Yorke say it's time for a new Thom Yorke solo album. It's called "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes" and it's available via Bit Torrent here. Thom is nice enough to give a taste of the album for free with the first track, "A Brain in a Bottle" with accompanying video as a free download. For a mere $6 you can get all 8 of the tracks.

Go forth and enjoy all the bloops, beeps and melodic moans.

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 |

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.
