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.
It's been a rough 2013 so far mediacally speaking but everything now appears to be properly diagnosed and treatment is commencing with encouraging results. Feeling a little better every day and trying to keep up with the never ending deluge of new music. Here's a few things that have stood out recently.
A wildly diverse and expansive album of guitar centered epics.
Hem return after way too long away with a typically wonderful new outing. Click the album art for more information.
Picture Calexico meets Fleet Foxes... better yet listen to the song posted and click on the album art for more information.
Can't just post one from this one. They are going to be massively popular and are still getting better as evidenced by this hugley anticipated release.
Here's something to get involved with and a damn great live album. Click the artwork for all the information.
Very busy day today as I spent some time in New York with Robbie Robertson working on a special broadcast. Here's some songs we played....
She's Not Mine
