Welcommmmmeee to this week’s Neu Meusic Bleust! I don’t really like bleu cheese, and the funky subject lines for this blog are running thin, so I thought I’d share that opinion with you. Maybe in hopes that you forget that it is Wednesday and I promised you a post every Tuesday

[Disclaimer: If you are offended or disagree, feel free to direct any dissent about my cheese opinions to Cillian Mitchell, General Manager of KWCW. You can contact him at [email protected] or leave a message on the Community Feedback line at (509) 527-5284]

GardnerSadGirl – Volume Three Point FIve
 .
“This hard working LA outfit made up of three cousins is freaking sick. Put this album on to satisfy your melancholy, powerful DIY itch. Fuzzed out guitar and muffled, wopping drums back different combinations of vocals. Of course, you would have to yell to make yourself heard over the surprising amount of volume Sadgirls is putting out here. This 13 track release is joyfully angsty in a way that is reminiscent of King Khan and Tijuana Panthers. Listen to Little Queenie, Breakfast is Over, and Feel Like Sh*t for a sample of what SadGirl is serving up.”
I got u linked here to the version of Little Queenie from SadGirl Volume 3, better pick up that CD if you want to hear the most recent 1!

LucyMorgan Saint – 17 Hero EP
 .
“Fueled by synth and personality–Morgan Saint is balling out in this EP. This is frckn awesome–she bares her soul to us listeners–this EP is for her though –a cathartic journey that allows her to let go of the past. It is beautiful, emotionally raw, vibrant and empowering all at the same time–her vocals are most definitely at the forefront, but there are dreamy and upbeat beats in the backround that compliment her airy voice–but oh boy does she have power behind every word. Reminds me a tiny bit of Lorde, Dyan–also ballers.”
This album’s so poppin we had to review it twice! Here YOU hear 😉

Calvin: Open Mike Eagle – Brick Body Kids Still Daydream
 .
“Open Mike Eagle’s latest album once again proves him to be one of the most talented underground hip hop artists working. Mike takes on an incredible variety of sounds on this concept album about the Robert Taylor Homes in Chicago, the community he grew up until their demolition. His description of his childhood is at times bittersweet, defiant, and humorous, with a more overtly political message than he’s gravitated towards in the past. From jazzy opener “Legendary Iron Hood” [Beware: explicit link] to the chaotic “No Selling,” Eagle seems comfortable rapping over anything, and the beats on here are consistently creative and unique. Eagle breaks up his relaxed flow with catchy sung hooks, and the sheer variety of the album keeps it from ever getting stale. Whether you’re looking for new bangers or songs to fall asleep to, this album has something for you.”

CoryTrivium – The Sin And The Sentence
 .
“This is one of the moments I’ve been waiting for all semester: since I heard the title track from this album when it was released in August, I have been anxious to hear exactly what these modern Florida legends would do in 2017. Thankfully, it was exactly what I had hoped -> a perfect balance of the arena rock stylings of 2015’s Silence in the Snow and the heavy, classic sounds that remind the listener of Trivium’s material as old as Ascendancy (2005). After a slight misstep in their last album, Trivium have finally decided what they want to accomplish with their new sound. Some moments are as heavy and tight as the band has ever sounded (and sometimes even more), often while retaining a great melodic performance from vocalist Joseph Gordon Levitt… whoops I mean Matt Heafy :p it is clear that Heafy has worked a lot on his vocals over the past few years, and the band has discovered with this record that they can a) still create something genuinely new and “Trivium” sounding, b) get heavy af, and c) not sacrifice a deep appreciation for their metal roots. This incredibly balanced album simultaneously met and shattered my expectations for the band.”
Some pretty accessible metal here–try the title track if you’re looking to get into dis! Lead singer looks exactly like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and see if you can spot the octopus in the video. it’s a cheeky octopus…
