New Releases Tuesday: August 13th

Wild FeathersWelcome to New Releases Tuesday on WERS. Every Tuesday we take a look around the music scene and bring you updates on, you guessed it, the new albums coming out this week.

BLOC PARTY, THE NEXTWAVE SESSIONS

This five song EP from the UK four piece was primarily made during the band’s worldwide 2012 tour. The songs were created during the band’s long awaited return to music where they were playing some of the largest shows they ever have. Bloc Party worked with producer Dan Carey on the two lead tracks on the EP (“Ratchet” and “Obscene”). Even though it is only five tracks, The Nextwave Sessions showcase Bloc Party’s bright energy.

THE WILD FEATHERS, THE WILD FEATHERS

The five piece American rock band hailing from Nashville, Tennessee is finally releasing their self-titled debut album. The Wild Feathers worked with Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, The Wallflowers) who wanted the band to tap into their natural rock and roll sound for the album. The band is currently streaming their FULL album on RollingStone.com and is worth a listen if you are a fan of My Morning Jacket or the Avett Brothers.

VALERIE JUNE, PUSHIN’ AGAINST A STONE

Another debut album from a Tennessee native is singer, songwriter, and multi instrumentalist Valerie June. She is able to embody many different musical voices and has a voice with such power along with confidence in her sound. Valerie June received help from some very well established friends with producers Kevin Augunas, Peter Sabak, and Dan Auerbach helping make her debut album a reality.
