Week of 8/28/2017 In Review

I didn’t watch MTV’s Video Music Awards this week but I was happy to hear Kendrick Lamar won the big award and staying true to his persona, gave a ‘humble’ speech. I caught some of the perfomances on Youtube but nothing really blew me away. The Katy Perry performance was weird. Waaaay too much basketball imagery, HA. Here is what I did catch that I think is worth noting >

  • Hard rockers Mastodon gave us the first glimpse of an EP being released in September. Check out “Toes To Toes”
  • Robert Plant released second single “Bones of Saints” off upcoming new solo album
  • Death From Above 1979 dished 3rd single off upcoming new album. I think “Holy Books” is the best of these singles so far. That intro riff is gold. Bummer its only paid in the intro.
  • Love her or hate her, Taylor Swift’s new gimmick is pretty interesting and, so far, very entertaining. She released a video for her new single “Look What You Made Me Do”
  • Kendrick Lamar performed a medley of hit singles at the VMAs
  • And last but not least, the new Foo Figthers single “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” was given #MTSongoftheWeek honors on the site this week.


Song of the Week | Foo Fighters “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” | Week of 8/28/2017

Who’s in on the Foo Fighters’ two lead singles off the upcoming new album? Count me in.

Another cool video as well. The Foos are looking a bit like white walkers and rocking out on a kid’s root top. Go them!

I’m not convinced they will ever top their 2011 classic Wasting Light or touch any of their early stuff, but they continue to put out quality material. And you know bands always gain more fans with new releases.

Alright, this is my pick for the best song released this week. Whatcha got? Sound off @MusicTrajectory

Week of 8/21/2017 Song of the Week: Weezer “Mexican Fender”

Weezer is back and readying their 11th studio album Pacific Daydream, set to be released on 10/27/17 via Atlantic Records. “Mexican Fender” is the official 2nd single off the album. Lead single “Feels Like Summer” was released back in March.

There is no denying the catchiness of this new track and the epic intro riff is classic Rivers Cuomo.

The band has apparently pushed off further work on the rumored Black Album. Perhaps we see this album surface in the next couple years.

The band is currently on tour in the US through September before embarking on a European leg.
