It’s back to school time and The High Note is in session with yet another session of New Music Friday for all the new albums released for Friday, Sept. 8, 2023 to get you through that first-weekend homework session.
The Chemical Brothers are back, pulsating our eardrums with their electrifying “For That Beautiful Feeling.” Courtney Barnett reflects on the “End of the Day,” blending her introspective lyrics with her iconic indie rock sound.
I am brought straight back to my Warped Tour days with ska band Mustard Plug revving up nostalgic rhythms with “Where Did All My Friends Go?”
90s indie-rockers Sparklehorse have put together a collection of songs recorded prior to Mark Linkous’ 2010 suicide on “Bird Machine.”
All my jam band fans will lean into The String Cheese Incident’s “Lend Me a Hand” and for the folk fans, I can’t forget about The Blind Boys of Alabama and Tall Tall Trees.
As always the entire list of new albums released today, Friday, Sept. 8, 2023 is below in no particular order. Let me know what you’re listening to in the comments below and on @highnoteblog.
