Summertime = new music time!

Summer = warmer weather, longer days, sun tans, BBQs, bonfires, vacation, Music Fests...and new music! 

  It's almost time to bask in the sunshine with some brand spankin' new tunes! 

Late last week The Strokes announced they're dropping an EP this week! This will be the first new material we've heard from The Strokes in 3 years! The 4 song EP, Future Present Past includes a remix of OBLIVIOUS and will be released via Julian Casablancas' Cult Records.

After a five year wait since Blood Pressures, my favorite British/America rock duo, The Kills are finally coming out with a new album! Videos for "Heart of a Dog" and "Siberian Nights" off of the forth-coming Ash & Ice have been circulating for a little while now but the whole shebang comes to us on June 3rd!  The Kills are on the road in support of what will be their 5th album now!

It's only been a year since we heard from retro, rastafarian, dub-rockers Rebelution but they're ready to welcome their sixth studio album, Falling into Place on June 3rd!  

The Temper Trap are back! The eagerly awaited third album from the Aussie indie-rockers drops on June 10th followed by an extensive North American tour. Thick as Thieves is the first time The Temper Trap have worked with outside songwriters....can't wait to hear their exploits into different musical frontiers!

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are bringing the heat this Summer! The Getaway will be here on June 17th! It's The Peppers 10th album since their 1984 self-title debut!  Currently on a Music Fest circuit RHCP's funky, alternative, chill vibe make for a great festival experience so it's perfect that they're bringing their new (and old) tunes to the masses!

The latest teaser from my favorite bad-girl, world music,  M.I.A is a two -part song called "OLA + Foreign Friend". If things go well with her American record label, her 5th album Matahdatah could be out in full sometime this year!

Freak-a-deaks Die Antwoord went reggae on one of their new singles, "Dazed & Confused". You'll want to light a doobie when you enjoy this newbie that takes you down a trippy path. Things get steamy on the other new single "Gucci Coochie" featuring strip teaser, Dita Von Teese
No woord on an album release date.  

Justin Timberlake has already taken the crown for the song of Summer 2016 with his hit single, "Can't Stop the Feeling." Move over Bieber cause our Justin is BACK! "Suit and Tie" was OK but it just isn't as fun as his new one! It has everything: JT's famous fallseto, snapping, clapping, even a choir like chorus! "Can't Stop the Feeling" will have you singing and dancing the rest of the year!
