New Releases Tuesday: August 20th

Susan TedeschiWelcome 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.


Made Up Mind is the third album from the southern soul group, the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Husband and wife duo Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi are the powerful force that drives this album. Derek Trucks signature guitar riffs match up perfectly with the bluesy vocal styling of Susan Tedeschi, and it doesn’t hurt that the two are backed up by ten other spectacular musicians. Opposing the albums cover art, which depicts a Bison charging towards a train, Made Up Mind is about the collaboration of two forces.

TY SEGALL, Sleeper

Ty Segall as a solo act has released a total of eight studio albums, three of these coming out in 2012. Segall is also a member of the bands Fuzz, The Traditional Fools, Epsilons, Party Fowl, Sic Alps, The Perverts, and the Ty Segall Band. All of these other projects have released albums of their own on top of the eight Segall has released solo. Sleeper has a lot of emotional connection to Segall because last year his adoptive father passed away after a long battle with cancer. Ty Segall puts it nicely by saying, “This album has a definite amount of bummer stuff.”

JULIA HOLTER, Loud City Song

Julia Holter is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles. She has a soft spot for drama in her music, as she has based her previous albums on Greek tragedies. For her third album, Loud City Song, Holter looked to the 1958 musical film “Gigi” for inspiration.
