State of the Music Address: April 2014

This is a new feature for odds and ends, and to give you a preview of what's coming up in music and on Nomorebloodfromaclone. So without further adieu...

-There are quite a few new albums coming out soon:
  • April 8th, Eric Hutchinson Tell the World
  • April 14th, Rob Cantor Not a Trampoline
  • April 15th, Ingrid Michaelson Lights Out
  • May 5th, Lykke Li I Never Learn
  • May 27th, Miniature Tigers Cruel Runnings
  • June 9th, Chrissie Hynde Stockholm
-As such, there have been a few single releases, including Rob Cantor's "Ghost":

-...and Miniature Tigers' "Swimming Pool Blues," the video for which is as perfectly done and humorous as anything the band has done.

-It's going to be a great summer for concerts here in Ohio.
  • The Ohio State Fair is featuring Blue Oyster Cult, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, The Beach Boys, Heart, Joan Jett, America, and Aretha Franklin.
  • The Monkees are touring again, with the three remaining members.
  • Cher and Cyndi Lauper have joined forces for a tour.
  • Of Montreal are coming to Cincinnati. I wish they'd do a Columbus date at some point!
-Record Store Day 2014 is fast approaching. fun., Of Montreal, and Deerhoof are all releasing stuff, just to name a few, so I'm excited for April 19th.

-And finally, here at Nomorebloodfromaclone, you can look forward to an exclusive interview soon, as well as yet another "I've Got This Covered." If all goes according to plan, you can expect more frequent updates here in general. Stick around!
