New Order"Waiting for the Sirens"
On Wednesday I went out and picked up the new New Order- "Waiting of the Sirens". What a great ablum. Peter Hook gives his signature bass and Benard Sumner voice hasn't changed or lost it's innocent appeal. This one is a little more dance sound than 2000's "Get Ready" but still very fresh sounding. It's worth the title track alone.
Social Distortion "Sex, Love, and Rock and Roll"
I've been listening a lot to my favorite hard- luck-punk band for some reason. Social D was the first concert I ever went to- back in 1990. They put on a great show. Filled with raw energy that only Mike Ness's guitar can create. Their comeback record picks up where they left off (before their drummer died). These guys were living the punk life long before Green Day died their hair.
