Bit of a theme (other than new music) today - bands from 80s and 90s. Remember Screaming Trees?
That's "Nearly Lost You" from Screaming Trees 1992 album, Sweet Oblivion (and also on the Singles soundtrack):
Screaming Trees' new album, Last Words: The Final Recordings, is out today; not an album of new songs, but a new album nonetheless.
And the rapper and songwriter who fronted this group has a new record out today:
"Jump Around" from House of Pain's self-titled album from 1992 . House of Pain was fronted by Everlast, who has a new album out today, called Songs of the Ungrateful Living.
Also, this news just came out a few hours ago...Smashing Pumpkins' albums Gish from '91 and 1993's Siamese Dream are getting the deluxe reissue treatment (who isn't?). Expect packages of deluxe double cds and dvd sets, vinyl, etc. (all kinds of treats for those, I'm sure).
This song gives me chills, so I have to include it:
And also today, new music from...
Jane's Addiction- "Jane Says" from their 1988 album Nothing's Shocking. Their new album, their first one in eight years, is called The Great Escape Artist, and it sounds nothing like the music from their most popular albums Nothing's Shocking or 1990's Ritual de lo Habitual.
Frontman Perry Farrell said "it's a strange mixture of that post-punk Goth darkness that Jane's had, with what's going on today with groups like Muse and Radiohead . As much as I want to appease fans and make old Jane's fans love me, I just can't help myself from moving forward."
There ya go. Here's new Jane's Addiction "Twisted Tales" from their new album The Great Escape Artist, out today.
