In Stores Now And Coming Soon: New Albums By Marc Anthony, Tommy Lee, Box Car Racer, The Breeders & More

New efforts from long-gone '90s names (remember Meredith Brooks?) also in offing.

It’s Tuesday again, time push aside the old, dusty albums to make room on the shelves for shiny, new releases. This week’s spotlight is on two-thirds of Blink-182, as Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker unveil the self-titled debut from their side project, Box Car Racer.

Though Box Car Racer — whose lineup is rounded out by Dave Kennedy and Anthony Celestino — could be seen as an extension of sorts to Blink, the music is darker and less poppy, as seen on their first single, “I Feel So.”

The way Tommy Lee feels, predictably, is like rocking, and his new album, Never a Dull Moment is the perfect place to do it. Marc Anthony rolls out his newest English-language release, Mended, while the Breeders — Kim and Kelley Deal and their new lineup — make their way back onto the scene with their first album in almost a decade, Title TK. Word to the Holler girls.
