Art Decade has an expansive debut album titled Western Sunrise that I’ve found enticing. Take in “Breeze” and what is obviously the video for the title track.
With the cold setting in full course, Mark Mallman offers up “Like A Car Crash” from the album Double Silhouette.
What is there to say about Krokus? There’s been a lot of talk about rock, and I’m here to remind you that Krokus have a new album, Dirty Dynamite, coming out March 5th. Watch the video for the title track to figure out how you’re feeling.
Speck Mountain have a new album, Badwater, that I have been enjoying. You too can embark on your own quest to engage the splintered sunlight with a viewing of the video for “Slow So Long”, and a listen to “Run Honey Run”.

On February 5th, the Misfits will release DEA.D. ALIVE!. The recording was taken from a show in Times Square, with certain songs from the band’s encore set at their hometown show in NJ added to the collection. This is their first live album since the 1980’s and features fourteen tracks.
Very nice to hear that Psychic TV’s 1983 album, Dreams Less Sweet, will appear on vinyl for the first time in 20 years. This will be a limited-edition run of 1,000 copies, all in Holophonic audio from the original UK vinyl masters.
Back in September, Ocean Carolina released an album by the title of All The Way Home that likely will appeal to fans of Neil Young, Ryan Adams, Chris Isaak, and elsewhere writers of the road. Beyond the engagement of song, expect a procession of flowing notes from the pedal steel, as well as talk of love, desire, drinking, and other human syndromes. The record includes Caitlin Cary (Whiskeytown) on backing vocals and violin, Jon Graboff (Ryan Adams, Shooter Jennings) on pedal steel, with Peele Wimberley (The Connells) and Jeff Gensterblum (Small Brown Bike) on drums.
Listen to several songs from Ocean Carolina
Washington DC’s Teen Mom is Sean Dalby (drums), Tom MacWright (bass), and Chris Kelly (vox/guitar). Their forthcoming EP, Mean Tom, brings an endearing distant yearn drawn up in low level vocals and fuzzed out measure. The six song EP comes out 11/27 on Analog Edition Records and will be available digitally and on coke bottle clear & black vinyl, in limited quantities.
