Plenty of albums coming out this Tuesday to satisfy your mid-summer music cravings…

Alkaline Trio— Damnesia


Damnesia is a project fans of the longstanding Chicago punk band Alkaline Trio should enjoy, as it features reworked, stripped-down versions of the group’s earlier releases.  It also contains two new songs and a Violent Femmes cover.

Blake Shelton— Red River Blue


After resisting pop country for my entire life, I couldn’t help but be entertained by Blake Shelton’s funny comments and impressive performances on the few episodes of The Voice that I caught this season.  The singer has already received a great amount of success this year with that show and his recent marriage to country superstar Miranda Lambert, and this forthcoming release is sure to further that success.
