Absolutely my favorite new album. Former Rave-Ups leader returns with an astoundingly great album. Welcome back, Jimmer. Go buy this record at once!!!!!
A very close second in the favorite new album category. I have liked the band for a while but didn't expect such a giant leap forward with this new album. Wonderfull.
Bob Dylan meets Porcupine Tree in Bon Iver's garage and they all listen to the first two Psychedelic Furs albums..
My Morning Jacket offers the first taste of a heartfelt tribute to the late Jason Molina. His music will live forever. Click the artwork for all the info.
Conor returns with Dawes as his backing band, album and tour together to follow. Click the artwork for more details and tour dates.
I can't believe the visionary Tackhead have returned and with an O'Jays cover no less! This is really shaping up to be a special musical year.
Offspring of John, who wrote "Step On" as well as a ton of others, this is going to be a huge hit. Listen now, we will all be sick of it by the end of Spring or mid-Summer at the latest.
Very rockin and completely irresistible. I have a feeling a few more tunes will wind up posted here from this album very soon.
Can't believe I went more than a month without posting but I've been in dental reconstruction hell, as well as very busy at work. That said, here's a few new and old things that I've been cranking in the Basement Studio recently.
Can't believe we lost J.J. Cale. Without question one of the finest songwriters of my generation but also one of the nicest gentlemen I've ever had the privilege to meet.
Black Joe is back with another collection of tender love ballads... yeah, right!
This will be our next best kept secret to cross over to mass adulation, or at least they should based on this terrific new album!
One of my absolute favorite pop rockers is getting ready to release his first ever covers album.
The new album isn't due until November but Brendan sent me a few tunes to tide me over until it arrives. This one should be a hit, whatever the hell that means!
I am completely in love with this record... here's the title track.
Not only is Jason Isbell one of the finest young songwriters on the scene. He just married Amanda Shires, who is pretty damn terrific as well! Great new record.
They're back!!!!!!!! The rock album we all need right now, pushed forward by one of the best pure rock drummers on the planet, Jon Wurster.
Believe it or not this marks the first time the legendary PHJB have recorded an album containing all original material. Produced by Ben Jaffe and Jim James.
Here's a brand new Bright Eyes track for your review. Conor is really reminding me of Marc Bolan more and more as time goes on, which is certainly not a bad thing.
Bright Eyes - 'Shell Games'
Speaking of T. Rex.... here's one of my favorites.
T. Rex - 'Raw Ramp'
If you can find The Grays one and only album "Ro-Sham-Bo" (from 1994) buy it immediately!
The Grays - 'No One Can Hurt Me'
This one slays me every time I play it....
Ryan Adams - 'Cry On Demand'
It's a Sunday, so I may post a few more later.....
