Volume One of the Best New Music Releases for the week of June 26 features a good number of notable rock songs with blazing guitar solos and raucous drumming, adding credibility to a trend in 2012 – that is, that rock is making a big comeback in 2012. This playlist kicks off with a terrifically new single from The Henry Clay People, “Hide,” complete with blistering guitar solos, feverous drumming, and even some Star Wars-like sound effects, followed by a catchy new rocker from the new-to-us San Francisco duo Seventeen Evergreen.
After an 11 year hiatus, Beachwood Sparks has released a new album, The Tarnished Gold, which we have two singles – one in this post, and the other to be included in Volume Two, later this week. Following Beachwood Sparks, there indie rock singles from the Ty Segall Band, Milk Maid and Everest.
