New Release Report 10/15/13

Pearl Jam, Pearl Jam, PEARL JAM!!!! The last time Pearl Jam had a new album out was 2009’s Backspacer which, for me at least, was kind of a blip on the radar of magnificent Pearl Jam releases. Since then, there have been the inevitable side projects and relentless touring as well as a certain drummer of the band reuniting with some other Seattle band for an album and subsequent tour (Soundgarden). But I digress. PJ is now back with Lightning [...]

New Release Report 10/8/13

The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. The most anticipated album of 2013 has dropped and it ain’t who you thought it was cuz that guy released his album last Monday . That’s right, I’m talking about Hannah Montana herself, Miley Cyrus. It’s Bangerz baby! Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last year or so, Ms. Cyrus has been making waves. She’s been criticized for her raunchy videos and a controversial VMA appearance but now she gets to prove whether it was [...]

Metal Monday Volume 142 (10.7.13)

Metal Monday Volume 142 (10.7.13)

Did you miss Pelican as much as I did? As much of a fan as I was of last year’s Ataraxia/Taraxis EP I’d rather a full-length so the announcement of Forever Becoming being released, Pelican’s fifth full-length, definitely caused some dancing around the Popblerd offices (On my part at least). Speaking of the EP, it was a great indicator of what was coming as Forever Becoming is all around a little looser production-wise (With What We All Come To Need’s [...]

Fall Out Boy, Ryan Adams Get Down and Dirty on New EP

Fall Out Boy, Ryan Adams Get Down and Dirty on New EP

When Fall Out Boy ended a four-year hiatus this spring with the release of fifth album  Save Rock and Roll , audiences and critics were clearly happy to hear their unique blend of verbose, baroque pop-punk on the airwaves again. (Lead single “ My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up) ” hit No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 – rarified air for a rock band in the 2010s.) If you’d told fans they’d follow up Save Rock and Roll with a taut, grimy EP of punk tunes, it might’ve been hard to believe. [...]

Metal Monday Volume 141 (9.30.13)

Metal Monday Volume 141 (9.30.13)

Doomriders and Deathwish know how to plug a leak. When DR’s third album hit the web almost three weeks before its October 15th street date, the band and label acted swiftly and unleashed pre-orders complete with a digital download of the entire album instantly. It quenched fan fervor for the upcoming album and it’s also why you’re reading this review now (I went with the vinyl version myself). Grand Blood is the name of their third album and it is [...]

New Release Report 9/30/13

It’s New Release Tuesday! No, it’s Monday. Why is there a New Release Report out on a Monday?!?! JT has an album out and he deemed Monday was the day it was going to be released? Oh, okay. That makes sense then. So yeah, here we are on a Monday talking about some new releases because Justin Timberlake has that kind of power and, frankly, who are we to argue?  The second half of The 20/20 Experience hits today (Appropriately [...]
