NEW RELEASES WEEK 31

The Fate Of The Furious, Menace II Society, Buddy Guy, Highwaymen, F.U. Schnickens, TELEX


This week we'll start with two fantastic At The Movies releases!

First up is the ultimate score of the action-packed movie The Fate Of The Furious, also known as Fast & Furious 8. The music is written by talented composer Brian Tyler and completely amplifies the action of the last instalment in the franchise. The first pressing is now available as a limited edition on silver vinyl, the album also includes an exclusive poster and a gatefold with special spot varnish effect.

The soundtrack to the hood drama Menace II Society is a great compilation of old school Hip Hop and R&B songs, which brings the listener back to the ghetto in Los Angeles around the 90s. It includes tracks by MC Eiht, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, Boogie Down productions and more. The limited edition is pressed on red vinyl.

Fu-schnickens was a brief popular, but significant Hip Hop group from the USA. Their debut album F.U. Don't Take It Personal featured the hit singles "Ring The Alarm" and "True Fu-Schnick" and is a wonderful addition alongside the likes of KRS-One, Wu-Tang Clan, A Tribe Called Quest and more. The reissue of this phat album is now available!

Another release of the country music supergroup by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson is Highwayman 2. This second studio album is another genius production by the greatest men of their trade.

Buddy Guy is not widely known for his acoustic work, but he definitely knows how to unplug for a rare album length on the album Blues Singer. Guy is just as convincing as on his electric albums and this makes the album one of the bravest and most poignant albums in his catalogue.

If you're into disco and experimental electronic music, the album Looking For Saint-Tropez is the one to get! The track "Moskow Diskow" created the international breakthrough for the band TELEX, but every track consists of clever, playful melodies. The album is the latest release in the Brewed in Belgium series and is out now!

Have a great weekend,
