IBC-finalist Albert Castiglia's latest among this week's headline releases...

New Music Tuesday: Albert Castiglia, Black Label Society, Blake Shelton, Street Sweeper Social Club

I’ve skimmed the list this week and it feels a bit light to me both in terms of titles that interest me and those that might appeal to those of you whose interests lie in genres outside those I regularly follow. 

Country star Blake Shelton has a new album out called All About Tonight and there’s new music from Street Sweeper Social Club.  Hard rock/metal fans will also want to take note of the latest from Zakk Wylde and his Black Label Society, Order Of The Black.

Albert Castiglia
Keepin On 

I was fortunate enough to get an advance of the latest from blues guitarist and International Blues Challenge finalist Albert Castiglia but I’ve been waiting to talk about it until closer to its release date.  Good news!  We’re there.

Keepin On made its chart debut at blues radio and I’d expect to see it rise higher in the ranks now that fans can hear the whole thing for themselves.  I’ve already previewed a track from this high-octane, energetic set in yesterday’s BPR 6-Pack and I’ve nearly finished my complete review of the record.  While you wait for me, Blogcritics writer John Taylor has already finished his.  Take a look at what he had to say and we’ll reconvene soon with mine.
