New music, with an emphasis on the bass player.
Get ready to bob your head: The Greyboy Allstars have returned with their sixth studio album. “Get a Job” was compiled from the jazz funk band’s 2021 “Soul Dream” live-stream series on nugs.net.
Meshuggah has returned with another crushing album called “Immutable”, which sees the band’s heavy and odd-metered music taken to a new level.
The Stick Men have just released a limited edition EP, marking the trio’s first new music in six years. “Tentacles” is a five-song collection that runs 30 minutes, but that’s plenty of time for the band to dig in.
Black metal legend Abbath has returned with his third solo album, entitled Dread Reaver. While Abbath handles bass on five of the album’s tracks, the remaining four are handled by bassist Mia Wallace.
At long last, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have returned with a full-length studio album. “Unlimited Love” is a return to the classic lineup of Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith, and John Frusciante.
Weezer has returned by dropping the first of a four-EP cycle based on the seasons. “SZNZ: Spring” is a seven-song collection that captures the sweetness of the season with decidedly upbeat love songs.
A new box set is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Frank Zappa and Mothers of Invention’s 1971 lineup (including Jim Pons). “The Mothers 1971” is an eight-CD set that compiles the complete tapes from their Fillmore East concerts and more.
The duo of Walter Smith III and Matthew Stevens have returned with the third installment of their “In Common” project, with a new lineup. That includes the masterful rhythm section of drummer Terri Lynne Carrington and bassist Dave Holland.
KISS has released the second installment of their live album series with “Off The Soundboard: Live in Virginia Beach”. The twenty-song collection was captured on July 25, 2004, during their “Rock The Nation” Tour.
Last year, Christian McBride teamed up with the hi-res streaming service Qobuz to release “The Q Sessions”. Now, the EP has been released to all digital platforms to be more widely available.
Seattle-based seven-piece band The Dip has honed a style that pays homage to classic R&B vibes. Now that sound has crystallized on their third full-length album, “Sticking With It”.
The sludge metal pioneers in Crowbar have just released their 12th studio album, “Zero and Below”. This is the first to feature bassist Shane Wesley, and they still have all the same heavy doom and punk attitude.
