New Music Friday on The High Note

Summer is coming to a close and New Music Friday is just heating up with an epic list new albums released today, Friday, Aug. 25, 2023.

Shock rocker Alice Cooper isn’t slowing down on his latest album “Road.”

Two of my favorite hip-hop artists Earl Sweatshirt and Alchemist release a new album on the Gala Music platform “Voir Dire.”

Islands floats into the lineup this week with “And That’s Why Dolphins Lost Their Legs,” and Open Mike Eagle is out with “Another Triumph of Ghetto Engineering.”

Former Philadelphia Folk Festival performs Hiss Golden Messenger is out with “Jump For Joy” and Old Crow Medicine Show is out with “Jubilee.” serves another dose of their classic bluegrass tunes, sure to invoke nostalgia and foot-tapping in equal measure. Lastly, don’t forget about Grandaddy, who is out with “Sumday: Excess Baggage.”

As always the entire list of new albums released today, Friday, August 25, 2023 is below in no particular order. My most anticipated album is in bold.
