It's that time of the week again when new albums are released and it's another good week!
Cee-Lo Green - The Lady Killer
I wrote about this album last week when it was released for streaming on NPR. Well, now the album has been officially released. I took the opportunity to listen to it in it's entirety a few days ago and it really is a great release. Most of the songs take on a more upbeat sound, like the lead single, "F*** You," of course, without the subject matter. My favorite by far, however, is his cover of Band of Horses' "No One's Gonna Love You." As great as the original is, his version gave me chills the first time I heard it. If you haven't taken the opportunity yet, be sure to check out those songs and the rest of NPR.
The Tallest Man on Earth - Sometimes the Blues is Just a Passing Bird (EP)
I first fell in love with The Tallest Man on Earth when my friend John played his cover of Paul Simon's "Graceland" on his radio show this summer. He released an album, The Wild Hunt, earlier this year. I don't think the EP is as strong as the album, but it's still a strong release from this amazing guitar-picking artist.
"Like the Wheel"
