New Music Round-Up: September Edition

iThe time for summer jams has come and gone and as we move into fall and eventually winter, new releases are dropping faster than the effin’ leaves are in my backyard. Traditional music reviews can be a traditional source of boredom.

So spicing it up with Michael Scott GIFs.

And that’s GIF with a soft ‘G.” Sounds like a “j.”

Giddy Up America’s Early September New Music Round-Up

Arcade Fire “Reflektor”

This is the new single of the band’s first album since 2011, when they released The Suburbs, which surprised pretty much everyone except the show’s producers when it won the Grammy for Album of the Year. This new album, the title remains a mystery, has a LCD Soundsystem touch to it, thanks to production by James Murphy.

Arctic Monkeys AM

These English dudes just keep coming out with good, strong records. This one has some meat on it’s bones.

Janelle Monae Electric Lady

I love this crazy, little lady. She’s the real deal. Just check out her performance on The Late Show with David Letterman. It’s fierce!

The Interpretation of the Michael Scott-Applicable GIF: Ooooooohhhh this is fuuuuuuuuunnn!

Eminem “Berzerk”

Homeboy is going old school with this, channeling his inner Beastie Boy. And I love it. It’s rawkus and tough. If Eminem has re-invented himself in a style more like this tune, I’m all in.

The Interpretation of the Michael Scott-Applicable GIF: I appreciate this. 100%.

Coldplay “Atlas”

Well for starters, I thought they were on hiatus. And on a related note, I kind of wish they still were. This song is boring.

The Interpretation of the Michael Scott-Applicable GIF: Eh.

Drake “Wu Tang Forever”

It ain’t no “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” but it’s still good.

The Interpretation of the Michael Scott-Applicable GIF: Yeah, not as good “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”
