Live Ledge #243: New Releases

Tonight's look at new music focuses heavier than usual on harder-edge rock and roll. We have the return of the Melvins, along with other rockin' bands such as The Backseat Angels, Hellfreaks, CFM, A Giant Dog, and so many more.
There's also some more pop-related tracks, though. Colleen Green, Twin Peaks, and a reissue of first release by Boston's The Connection. And, of course, there's also the surprisingly good comeback record by The Monkees. I don't think ANYBODY thought this was going to listenable. They've had a couple of other comeback records that nobody wanted to hear a second time. Yet, the combination of great songwriters (Rivers Cuomo, Ben Gibbard, Andy Partridge, Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller), along with simple production by Adam Schlesinger, has culminated in a record that actually sounds like those released in the original run of the band.
As always, grab this from the usual sources, including iTunes and Stitcher, or...
