Blue October + Robyn Hitchcock + Honey Made + The Kut + Miss Emily = our New Music picks

Blue October: Spinning the Truth Around

Here's the title track from a planned double album, recorded at frontman Justin Furstenfeld's studio in San Marcos, Texas, over the past two years. The first part is due next month and the second early next year.

Robyn Hitchcock: The Shuffle Man 

AllMusic calls him "one of England's most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers" and "among alternative rock's father figures" despite often being "branded as eccentric or quirky." This is the opening track from Shufflemania! - Hitchcock's first LP since 2017, due next month.

Honey Made: Upstairs

This nine-piece band out of Austin, Texas, led by brothers Willie and Christopher Barnes, formed in 2018, released an album called Brand New in 2020 and has another collection on the way. The Colorado Sound blog calls this first single "a fun, funky come-on song that’s a perfect introduction to the R&B group’s full-bodied, dance-friendly sound."

The Kut: And 1 More...

Earlier this year we featured "Satellite" from this UK band's sophomore album, GRIT. This is the appropriately titled last track on the LP. A blog called With Just A Hint of Mayhem calls it "a melodic grungey punk track with hooks to die for," adding, "Joan Jett would be proud of this tune."

Miss Emily: Defined By Love

This bluesy singer from Kingston, Ontario, is about to release her fourth album, Defined By Love, and we're adding the title track to our New Music bin. The LP is touted as "a deeply personal 12-song meditation on deception, pain, resilience, and finding strength among the ruins of heartbreak."
