New Music Tuesday

Humphreys By the Bay

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss perform at the Humphreys venue.

After a couple of soft weeks for new releases, summer closes and fall enters with a fury of new material from veritable rock powerhouses, including Robert Plant, Linkin ParkWeezer and the Killers’ Brandon Flowers. 

During Flowers’ fall European tour, San Diego Music Award winners Transfer will accompany him on the road. Flowers’ new record, Flamingo, an homage to his home street, originally started as a Killers record but morphed into the singer's first solo endeavor.

In a similar storyline, Plant’s follow-up to his Grammy-winning collaboration with Alison Kraus morphed into Band of Joy, his pre-Zeppelin project with John Bonham. The critically acclaimed, rootsy endeavor re-teams Plant withlongtime producer and friend T-Bone Burnett.  In other pairings, Mavis Staples, 71, teams with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy on a collection of gospel covers and new material, and Linkin Park reunites with Rick Rubin for the rock-leaning follow-up to MInutes to Midnight: A Thousand Suns.  Since when did Linkin Park start naming albums a la Iron Maiden records?!?

Weezer, on a mission to reclaim hipster cred, releases Hurley, a better record (and title) than Raditude, and Chromeo serves up some ridiculously awesome '70s funk/pop on their third album. Additionally, new offerings from Phish-head Trey Anastasio, Michelle Branch, Of Montreal and Black Milk are worthy of an aural investment.  Here’s the full list on releases for Tuesday, Sept. 14:
