After a week with some big-name releases, we go back to a release date with some juicy titles, but no names that are likely to debut in the top 10 other than “iCarly” star Miranda Cosgrove and rock band Rise Against.” Here are some of the top March 15 releases.
Miranda Cosgrove, “High Maintenance” (SMBE/Columbia): The “iCarly” star releases a five-song EP that includes, we’re serious, an appearance by Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo.
Dead Kenny Gs, “Operation Long Leash” (Megaforce): We don’t know that much about this punk jazz trio, but we just wanted to include them to the name would make you smile... unless, of course, you’re Kenny G. In that case, we don’t think it’s funny either, Kenny.
Laura Jansen, “Bells” (Decca): Dutch singer/songwriter and Hotel Cafe favorite fronted her U.S. debut with first track, “Single Girls.” It’s not a happy tune. The chalk outline in the video gives it away. She has a lovely Tori Amos-like tone to her plaintive voice.
