Published May 31, 2011Every Tuesday, the music world gives us tons of new releases. So, every Tuesday, we give you tons of reviews to make sure that you can find the perfect new additions to your music collection. Here's just a sample of what's new in the Exclaim! Recently Reviewed section.
First, we take a look at the Warped 45s, who, although still relatively new to the scene, have managed to build up a reputation for themselves as one of the country's top roots rock acts. They released their debut album, 10 Day Poem for Saskatchewan, in 2009 and now they're already back with their follow-up, Matador Sunset. Check out the review for an interview with guitarists/vocalists/first cousins Ryan and Dave McEathron, who talk about the album's quick turnaround and how they create their narrative-driven songs.
Ron Hawkins hasn't been wasting any time between albums either. It's only been 18 months since the Lowest of the Low frontman released 10 Kinds of Lonely, but he's already back with his fifth solo record, Straitjacket Love, which showcases even more of Hawkins's signature lyrics and diverse songwriting. If you're looking for something a little bit harder though, we have the Melvins' newest live album, Sugar Daddy Live. They may already have a collection of live albums under their belts, but the ferocity and passion they bring to every show give the band more than enough reason to add another to their catalogue.
If that's still not hard enough for you, death metal legends Autopsy are finally back with their first full-length in 16 years. Macabre Eternal brings together three of the band's original members, along with ex-Abscess bassist Joe Trevisano, for an album that's sure to make any Autopsy fan happy that they made the return. From death to doom, we also have My Dying Bride and their latest release Evinta. This album is made up of nine previously released MDB songs that the band reworked into dark and haunting symphonic tracks. Read the review to see how these versions hold up next to the originals.
To bring us back down a few notches, there's the Details and their new album Lost Art, where they mix alt-rock with country influences for an album full of superb storytelling. And for those of you in need of something more upbeat, we've got you covered with Seapony and their indie-poppin' Go with Me.
