Welcome to my Release Radar Review for the week of January 21, 2022. There was a significant amount of regional content, with Nicolas Rage, Bring On The Storm, and Wolfrik making appearances. Some absolute misses should have never been on my radar (why does it keep trying to force country music on me?), and some pretty decent tracks. First the stats, then the reviews!
Added To Library: 1
Hide This Song: 4
Hidden On Arrival: 0
Face The Fire - Comeback Kid - Wake The Dead Part 45,342
Passenger - Kiesza - I love her voice. She'd be so rich if she were performing in the '80s. Also, what's the deal with this 80s revival thing happening? I think I'm here for it.
Slapp - TSC et al. - Holy fuck @ these lyrics. Skip.
Sunshine Men - Freestyle Fellowship - This is much more like it. This is the content I want. Please recommend more like this in the comments. Added to library.
thought it was - iann dior - Love it. I want to steal iann dior's vocal chain. MGK's voice is undeniable even if his verse is kind of whatever.
Collect Your Things And Run - Hot Water Music - The production sounded so bad after the previous song. Instant skip.
Message In A Bottle - Taylor Swift - Her voice is SO MUCH BETTER on pop songs than on folk music. I'd be all about another full pop album from her.
Hanging Out With All The Wrong People - Billy Talent - Knew it was Billy Talent from the first guitar note, which was a good thing. The hook is so bad. Gave the bridge a chance to save it, ended up skipping.
Easy - The Game - "I don't negotiate with therapists" what a fucking line.
Decompose - Bring On The Storm - The big homies, some of my best friends. FFO: every bottle of tequila in the bar, tattoos, pro baseball.
Highway 67 - Corb Lund - Hide This Song before listening.
HIT - DaBaby - The 808 hits so hard right off the start, and I love DaBaby.
All In - Chris Janson - Hide This Song after hearing one second.
Fuck Society - SK8, Sueco - I'm a huge Sueco fan and Sueco doesn't miss. Being that this was a feature, woof. What a miss.
Robot Writes A Love Song - PUP - I forget listening to this song. I'm not too fond of this band.
I might - iann dior - Second best iann dior song on the release radar.
Re-entry - A Day To Remember - Is this how this band sounds? I noticed when Mark Hoppus came in on the track. Right, I was thinking of Bring Me The Horizon. This makes more sense now.
Crazy One More Time - Kip Moore - If I could block an entire genre from being on my algorithmic playlists I would.
Naked Grape - Nicolas Rage - Pretty major key song, in the music theory sense, from these guys.
The Black Mare - Wolfrik - Not for me.
Lick - Shenseea - Quick and easy skip.
Flossin' - Internet Money - The production on this track is so sick.
Lonely - Love Regenerator - Generic pop-EDM. Don't hate it.
Pop Music - 2 Chainz - Exactly what I expected, in a good way.
Trouble With A Heartbreak - Jason Aldean - Hide This Song before listening.
Fuck Daniel - DJ MC Kevin - wtf is happening here?
Parasitic - Belmont - Wow, that's an aggressive kick drum. I love the ambient trap first verse part.
Remember - Russ - Super lofi R&B vibes. Love it.
Meet Joe Black - Nas - Straight fire. Always.
Church Boots - Thomas Rhett - Hide This Song before listening.
