While the proper album releases are on hiatus this week and the staff here at Rock is the new Roll takes a much-deserved week off, no worries, we are not going to leave you hanging.
Here are five choice nuggets to be enjoyed over the fourth of July Weekend.
Bros – Garbanzo Man
A brother spin-off band from Rock is the New Roll of Famers Sheepdogs the fellas have released this one from their upcoming record, Vol 2.. With Hints of Ram era Paul McCartney and Hall and Oates, this one should get some heavy rotation on your summer playlist.
Robert Jon & The Wreck – Shine a Light on Me Brother
This one is like The Blues Brothers and Blackberry Smoke doing Proud Mary. A scorcher of an anthem, this is the title track from their upcoming record.
The Moon City Masters – Starstruck
Moving a fair length away from their cool covers and disco-tinged previous works The Moon City Masters offer up a cozy American-Moonlight single that could have been on a long-lost Poco record.
Kerosene Stars – Where Have You Been
Kerosene Stars are out in front of a new record later in the year with this hook-laden summer rocker.
Everet Almond – All Out of Time
This bouncy piano gem could fit quite nicely on any Paul Weller record.
Cult Stars From Mars – Blinded By The Light
A throwback-inspired band Cult Stars From Mars (Mike Portnoy, Jeff Soto, Darian Sahhanajay) trade-in their harder-edged Rock and Roll edged for a Power Pop sheen on this Bruce Springsteen cover.
