New Music Friday - The High Note with Shaun Smith

This week’s New Music Friday breathes life into the final days of winter, showcasing a diverse array of artists and their vibrant new releases.

This week, I’m stoked about the latest album by southern rock band Blackberry Smoke, “Be Right Here.”

For the electronic fans, check out William Doyle’s  “Springs Eternal.”

Laura Jane Grace punches through with her punk spirit on “Hole in My Head.”

Middle Kids offers a dose of indie rock through “Faith Crisis Pt 1,” and Grandaddy returns with “Blu Wav.”

As always, the list of new albums released today, Friday, February 16, 2024 is below in no particular order. My most anticipated albums are in bold.

Let me know what you’re listening to in the comments below and on social media @highnoteblog.
