New to the Airwaves – Out Today!

New to the Airwaves – Out Today

By: Sheila Walsh & Dianna Augustine

Bye bye, dear February, and hello, March! Though February was kind, we’re hoping March steps it up with the musical release. We need more pop (Or is that just us…)! Nevertheless, we love Fridays because there’s always something we end up loving. This week’s most anticipated record: Soccer Mommy. Y’all, if you haven’t heard the last few singles, you are MISSING OUT.

This week we’ve got some much anticipated arrivals that has us tapping our toes, crossing our arms, and screeching, “Finally!” We’re sure you can see which ones we think you should grab and which ones we think may deserve a pass… Dive in at your own risk, and let’s hear your picks!

In Case You Missed It:

Kitten – “I Did It!”

This LA queen has finally found her niche in honest power pop, only to be proven by her newest single in ages. “I Did It!” is a sad anthem if there ever was one, and this is only the beginning! A new look for the band, some added members, and a brand new sound means Kitten is practically a fresh, young band. Though nothing has been officially announced yet, Kitten’s website indicates they are practically finished mixing LP 2…. And that was back in September! Excuse me, where is the new album? “I Did It!” (with the required exclamation point) will have to hold us over.

New Vid – out today!

EPICA  ‘Decoded Poetry’  (Nuclear Blast)
