Fresh Wax -- New Vinyl For the Fourth of July

Beastie Boys Hello Nasty.jpg
The sun is out and most people don't have to go to work today. With a three day weekend underway, there's no reason not to go out and treat yourself to some brand new vinyl for your home stereos. There weren't a ton of new releases and reissues that hit stores this week, but what did come out is seriously good.

The Beastie Boys reissued Hello Nasty, the Bad Brains reissued Omega Sessions and a good amount of classic albums came out on 12" this week. After the jump, vinyl columnist Jason Ferguson gives us a run down on some of the best new records to hit stores and the internet this week.

With the upcoming July 4th holiday, it looks like the vinyl releases slowed down just a touch this week. But there's still a load of quality music coming out on wax this week ... as well as a new Keith Urban record. Fans of contemporary jazz will want to note new reissues from Pat Metheny and Joshua Redman; not only is Warner Bros. putting them out on thick 180g vinyl, but also including CDs in the package. This isn't a new thing by any stretch - Blue Note has been sticking CDs in their vinyl reissues for a while - but seeing a major label treat their more pop-oriented jazz titles like this is a nice trend.
