June was a month of a lot of music, and I've been listening to albums released earlier this year a lot as well (so much 100 gecs) but these are five albums which came out this month that I've been rocking.
The Baseball Project "Grand Salami Time!"
For those who know me (or even just frequent this site) it is no secret that two of my biggest passions are music and baseball. So, to have a band sing songs about baseball, combining these two passions, is just something I'm all for. Somewhere between The Hold Steady, Beach Boys and that Americana/rock n roll sound, The Baseball Project has even created a sound here that can be heard at baseball games.
"That's Living" can be very much on the folk side while "The Yips" is almost that southern rock n roll sound. Some elements of Tom Petty can be found in here and there are also a lot of sweet guitar solos. I especially enjoy the song "New Oh In Town", which is about Shohei Ohtani. The album ends on "The Voice Of Baseball" with the sing along chorus that he's not just the voice of the Dodgers, which is a great tribute to Vin Scully.
