Checking in With... Aversion.com
One of the websites that has been a mainstay of my web surfing over the last few years is Aversion.com. The site has a mix of cd reviews, interviews, MP3s and news items that, for one reason or another, tend to show up on Aversion weeks before they pop up anywhere else. If you're in the market for a new site to read, I strongly recommend checking it out.
Anyway, the point of this post is to point you to two pretty interesting things at Aversion today:
First is news that Rogue Wave have finished writing their new album, the followup to last year's excellent Descended Like Vultures. They're also apparently in the market for a new label.
Second, Aversion also has what seems to be the first advance MP3 from Greg Graffin's (of Bad Religion) forthcoming solo disc, Cold As The Clay [due out on July 11th on Anti Records]. It's pretty good. It sounds kinda like what you'd expect a Bad Religion song to sound like if it was just Greg and a guitar -- but that's a good thing. Check it out:
