ALBUM REVIEW: Tidal Wave – The Lord Knows


Here’s to genuinely hoping that 2023 would be a decent year for stoner rock releases – with the existence of records like The Lord Knows (Ripple Music) by the Swedish newcomers Tidal Wave. The Swedish stoner scene has always been all-around fascinating to me, with big names I admire such as Besvärjelsen and Skraeckoedlan, or even the all-time legendary Truckfighters. It’s always refreshing to see up-and-coming names coming right in, too.

Vicky Cornell Says Second Unreleased Chris Cornell Solo Album is In The Works


 

In December 2020, the estate of late Soundgarden, Temple of The Dog, Audioslave, and solo artist Chris Cornell, managed by his second wife Vicky Cornell, released No One Sings Like You Anymore: Volume One (Ume), an album of mostly unreleased cover songs. Initially reported to be “the final solo recordings of Chris Cornell”, that idea was backtracked as more Cornell songs have been uncovered. Speaking to “The Rizzuto Show” on the 105.7 The Point radio station, Vicky said that there is much more music from Chris on the way. “There is a volume two,” she said (hear audio below). “The thing with this volume one, though, that makes it special is that he mastered it, he sequenced it — this is all Chris from beginning to end. And the other one was mastered, not sequenced, volume two. And then, because he was just such a prolific writer, we’re blessed, because he has left us lots of music. Not in completely finished form, but there’s enough to work with, and the Cornell stamp is all over it. So that’s really special. So there’s a lot of music.”  As we previously reported, Vicky is also in a lawsuit against the surviving members of Soundgarden over the unreleased material that was meant to be Chris’ contribution to the final Soundgarden album.
