August new releases
This summer hasn't been the most exciting for new releases, and August doesn't change things. The release of the month is the first album in 11 years from The Verve.
Conor Oberst - Conor Oberst. Snooze.
The Script - The Script. The Irish group behind "We Cry" and current single "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" release their debut. This could be good.
Noah and the Whale - Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down. The band behind current hit "5 Years Time" releases their debut.
The Dandy Warhols - …Earth to the Dandy Warhols… The Portland band releases its 8th album. They're still best known for 2001's "Bohemian Like You."
The Verve - Forth. After an 11 year break, English band The Verve is back with their fourth album. Best known for their last album, Urban Hymns, which yielded major hits "Bitter Sweet Symphony" and "The Drugs Don't Work." Urban Hymns is a great album, and I'm hopeful this new release will be too. I like the first single, "Love Is Noise."
Solange - SoL-AngeL and the Hadley St. Dreams. Beyonce's little sister didn't make a major splash with her 2004 debut, but that could change with her second disc. First single "I Decided" is making waves in the UK with its Freemasons Remix--done by the remixers responsible for several of her sister's hits.
