Out this week (3/4/14) - Featuring new Nick Waterhouse

There were an insane number of intriguing new releases this week. The one that I was most excited about was the sophomore album from Nick Waterhouse, "Holly," and it has not disappointed one little bit. I've only listened to it a couple times so far, but I see this being one of the albums I return to over and over throughout the whole year.

Nick Waterhouse's music combines rock & roll, old school r & b, and soul. While all of these were present on his debut album, he seems to have found a way to put them together with more punch on "Holly." I previously posted a stream of the track "This Is A Game," so here's another track from the album, this one featuring a nice saxophone solo.

Also out this week is the fourth album from Seattle-based Cataldo (the stage name of Eric Anderson). My only introduction to the band was this post on Songs For The Day, but one listen through the album has me sold. Here's the album's closing track.

KHUSHI (who apparently shares his name with a poorly rated Bollywood movie) released his debut EP this week. The three original songs are an exciting debut somewhat similar to previous blog favorite Hayden Calnin (who has his second EP coming out later this month!).

If none of these grabbed you, there were also new releases by Drive-By Truckers, Wake Owl, Eagulls (on Partisan Records, who never seems to fail me), and Nothing. It looks like new releases are finally starting to pick up after a slow first couple months.
