New Music Tuesday (On the Horizon)

June 16, 2009

Well here are a few new, up and coming or notable artists for this edition of new music Tuesday.
I usually spend my Tuesday mornings sifting through the new releases on my prefered music sites and pick from what I find, though today has proved difficult.
In my searches I seem to have found a few artists who’s new releases are still on the horizon but whom I wanted to showcase today anyway because my digging seems to have uncovered little else.
So here they are…

Joe Lean and the Jing Jang jong

Here’s a band I came across via My Secret Playlist, a site dedicated to showcasing great new works in most musical genre.

Their called Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong from the UK and their work, although great, appears difficult to come by.

Joe Lean seem to have been around for some time now (at least since 07′) but have been fumbling around with name changes and album cancellations for the last few years.
You can get your hands on this particular album through Amazon here…JL&TJJJ, though it’s difficult to locate anywhere else.
What I gather from Wikipedia is that the bands intention is to re-record their album for release sometime this year, though I’m unable to find out exactly when.
Have a listen to this track titled “Lonely Bouy”

Myspace…Jing Jang Jong

Trashcan Sinatras

Here is one of my favorite bands of all time, which makes this recommendation a little special for me.
Their Scotlands “Trashcan Sinatras” and they have surprisingly been around since the early 90’s.
As an example of my admiration for this band I will tell you that I purchased and re-purchased their first full release “Obscurity Knocks” (which was released in 1990) on three seperate occasions within two years time after loaning out the album and never having it returned.
The bands talent at releasing great new music for nearly two decades is mind boggling to me as they haven’t strayed far from their original sound and still continue to produce quality work.

This new album titled “In The Music” comes out in the states on July 14th and from what I’ve heard so far… their record continues. This track is called “Morning Star”

There are a few bands I’ve been watching for for some time now, just waiting for a new release to make it’s way into the public. Here is one of them.
This is Stellastarr* and I’ve posted about them before here…Harmonies for the Haunted.
This is their latest full release “Civilized” which is due out July 7th, and needless to say, I’m really excited about it.

I’ve already purchased the single “Graffiti Eyes” from itunes and was happy today to find a free download of another track from the album called “Freak Out” which you can listen to here..

…and download here…Pure Volume.


Thanks all. Return next week for more great music!
