This week brought some high-profile releases. HARDY’s long-awaited Joe Diffie tribute project is here. Additionally, Beyoncé released Cowboy Carter, the new country album that everyone is talking about. Both of those are both rock-solid releases However, there is plenty more new music out there to listen to this weekend.

Standout Releases

It’s become cliché to say that an artist or band “never misses.” However, Sarah Shook and the Disarmers are a band that fits that description. The band continues to get better with each new release and Revelations is no exception. The band creates a blend of country, rock, and punk sensibilities to create something new, fresh, and refreshing.

The instrumentation and arrangements on the album are top-notch. However, the songwriting will keep listeners coming back for more. This is one you don’t want to miss.

Sarah King released her debut full-length album When It All Goes Down today and it should not be ignored. King’s sound is an airtight but organic fusion of rock and blues with a splash of country. It’s hard to say if her songwriting or voice is more impressive. In the end, it may be a tie. In short, King’s debut outing is more than enough to put her on the map. The opening track, “Lord Take My Soul” will hook many listeners immediately.
