Randy Bachman – By George – By Bachman CD (UMe)
Randy Bachman, co-founder and lead guitarist of Canada’s legendary Bachman-Turner Overdrive, offers a unique approach to songs written solely by the late George Harrison. Bachman, an ardent admirer of Harrison from the Beatles’ early days, pays tribute by reinterpreting and taking a few liberties with these landmark songs.
Black Foxxes – Reiði’ CD/LP (Spinefarm)
“Reiði’” – the Icelandic word for rage – is a fitting title for the second full length record to come from Exeter’s Black Foxxes. Born from a restless need to push creative boundaries, and a fear of stagnation in all its forms, the follow-up to their acclaimed 2016 debut album I’m Not Well sees the three-piece pushing the vicious bite that fuels their band to new highs and experimenting with menacing shade and uplifting light alike.
Black Wizard – Livin’ Oblivion CD/LP (Listenable)
Second album from the Vancouver, BC heavy metal and hard rock band. [Limited edition colored vinyl pressing also available.]
