Did you miss me? After taking a little summer vacation, The High Note is back with New Music Friday and this week is more full than a cooler ready for a beach concert. I won’t waste any more space, let’s get down to the music.
First, I’ll start with the heavy hitters – Barenaked Ladies, Blondie, John Mayer and Pop Smoke all have new albums out today.
One of my favorite singer-songwriters, Steve Dawson, is out with his latest, “At the Bottom of a Canyon in the Branches of Tree.” Summer to me is Derek Trucks time so today I’ll also be playing Tedeschi Trucks Band’s latest “Layla Revisited (Live at Lockn’)” which is a cover of the classic album but features Trey Anastasio and Doyle Bramhall II.
I’m also a big fan of both singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow whose latest “Grapefruit Season,” is out today as well as rock band Wavves with its latest “Hideaway.”
Also, don’t sleep on new albums by Clairo, Yves Tumor, Eliza Shaddad and Half Waif.
As always, the entire list of new albums released today, Friday, July 16, 2021 is below in no particular order with my most anticipated albums in bold.
Let me know what you’re listening to in the comments below and on social media @highnoteblog.
