Newer bushes seem to have some kind of disease on them

Four plants, newer bushes, planted last summer, in front of house.

Last year they were great. This year the leaves are brown, yellow, and seem diseased.

Anything I can do to save these?

It's just these bushes. The others near, and a tree, don't seem affected.

Any advice appreciated.

Note, in the rear of the house we suddenly had a box elder do the same thing. That box elder was one in a row of 5. Only 1 affected, but same symptoms, went very brown, very quickly.

They are. I have 4 on the left front of house, another 4 on the right front of house.

It's the right 4 that are not surviving. I guess I picked the wrong shrub for the exposure. However, there has been little sun so far this season. Been raining constantly for weeks.

Mulch is wet. It's the normal brown stuff. I did recently put mulch down but the brown leaves started before that.

I am not sayin this is your problem because I agree the location is to sunny, but here is a quote from the American Rhododendron Societys website:
" Avoid planting azaleas near concrete sidewalks, driveways or foundations that may leach out lime which raises the pH. " Looks like yours were next to a concrete foundation.
