All the albums you'll be adding to your playlist next week. And more.

It’s a long weekend, so I’m not going to take up a bunch of your time (and mine) with a lot of blah-de-blah about new music. The short story: There are a bunch of singer-songwriters — including former AmIdol star Tori Kelly, Bruce Springsteen wannabe Sam Fender, Marika Hackman, Marc Cohn And The Blind Boys Of Alabama, and eternal underdog Pete Yorn. Rick Ross has a new album for the rap fans. And there are discs from Feeder, Spread Eagle, TC&I (Colin Moulding and drummer Terry Chambers) and Mary Timony’s new band Hammered Hulls for the rockheads. But the big dog of the week — the biggest and loudest by a long shot — is Slipknot’s new album. Check out the first videos below, and then peruse the rest of the week’s offerings. As always, don’t blame me if it all goes south. Now, back to the sunshine …


THE SHORT LIST

Slipknot
We Are Not Your Kind

THE PRESS RELEASE:Slipknot’s sixth studio album was produced by the band themselves and Greg Fidelman. Guitarist Jim Root noted, “This is the most time we’ve had to write a record, and work stuff out together. One of my inspirations this time around was those artists that recorded full length albums – not just songs. While the industry is moving toward singles, Slipknot wanted to make an album experience, front to back.”
