With a voice that sounds like it comes from Tennessee not Scotland, Roseanne Reid teams up with Steve Earle on this hushed beauty.
Having survived the 70’s Peter Perrett is ready to kick things into high gear with his Glam tinged blend of New Wave for the new era.
“Tyger Byte” is the latest song and video from Italian power trio Sandness. There is little nuance in the look of this band or the songs that they play but that is sort of the point. If there is a genre called NWOHB (New Wave of Hair Bands) these guys would be among the torchbearers.
Don’t hate on Dinosaur Pile-Up because they recently opened for Shinedown. Hey, a band has to make a living. Actually, these guys are legit. Having formed in Leeds back in 2007 this Indie Rock band has been working at their craft building a catalog of solid songs. “Thrash Metal Cassette” is the first single to be released from their upcoming album Celebrity Mansions.
Little Big Town continues to impress and break themselves out of the cookie cutter modern Country mold. Their new song “The Daughters” details the challenges that young females face every day in living up to expectations that others put on them. This record is a dead-on cinch for Country Music song of the year. You can bet on it.
This new feature, Rock With The New Roll, will be a somewhat random, usually spontaneous series of musings on the week in music. Some new, some old, this will be designed to highlight what is capturing our ear-tention.
Winetka Bowling League – Slow Dances
This Los Angeles band with firmly entrenched New York roots delivers music that has hooks for days. Much of their new music was written during a drive back to new york where the California vibe was ultra present all the way to the East Coast.
The song “On the 5” with the line “I want to go back to that summer in San Fran, listening to nothing but Revolver and Pet Sounds,” says all you need to know about this excellent band.
Nick Lowe – Trombone
This new song from Nick Lowe features Lowe’s recent collaborators Los Straightjackets as his backing band and Duane Benjamin on Trombone. The song addresses the handling of the feeling of abandonment after a lost love.
The Magpie Salute – The Killing Moon
Skip the Record Store Day lines and enjoy this first listen of the Magpie Salute’s tribute to Echo and the Bunnymen with their version of “The Killing Moon”
Walker Lukens – Didn’t Wanna Do Right
The latest single to be released in support of his upcoming record, “Didn’t Wanna Do Right” is a spectacular, pristinely produced song that is next-level great from this rising star.
Hayden Thorpe – Love Crimes
With the relatively recent of his band Wild Beasts, Hayden Thorpe is making great use of his time as a gets ready to release his first solo record to be released in the next couple of months.
No need to wrestle with the mental imagery here.
“We got ice, check. We got coolers, check. “We got cases of cold domestic gold just waiting for the sun to set.”
“We got tunes, check. We got girls, check. So come on, have another, we got Sunday to recover and we ain’t started yet.”
Your jam of the summer has just been released.
