SON VOLT – NOTES OF BLUE

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

SON VOLT – NOTES OF BLUE

Led by the songwriting and vocals of Jay Farrar, Son Volt was one of the most instrumental and influential bands in launching the alt.country movement of the 1990’s. A movement that was the precursor to what is now widely referred to as Americana. The 10 songs on Notes Of Blue are inspired by the spirit of the blues, but not the standard blues as most know it. The unique and haunting tunings of Mississippi Fred McDowell, Skip James and Nick Drake were all points of exploration for Farrar for the new collection. The album opens with the country soul of “Promise The World”, followed by “Back Against The Wall”, a song that could stand alongside the great Son Volt songs of their early albums. Farrar possesses one of the most distinctive voices in roots, rock, country or any genre. He exudes a soulful longing combined with a wise-beyond-his-years command that is as arresting and compelling as ever. As a songwriter, Farrar’s depth and ...

MOTHER MOTHER – NO CULTURE

MOTHER MOTHER – NO...

With the world roiled by fear and division borne out of politics, economic uncertainty, and terrorism, perhaps there is no better time for the arrival of music underpinned by the belief that love wins. Into the maw of anxiety comes Mother Mother with No Culture, which posits that society uses negative byproducts of culture — such as narcissism, hedonism, and addiction — as a means to nurture its fears of the unknown. “If we can strip back the culture, or the masks, attitudes, and stories that feed our differences, and just connect as people we might be more united at a time where we really need to be,” says Mother Mother’s frontman, guitarist, and lyricist Ryan Guldemond. The album was co‐produced by Brian Howes, Ryan Guldemond and Jason “JVP” Van Poederooyen. With tracks like “Baby Boy”, Guldemond treats the verses as a confessional box, admitting his penchant for self‐destruction, deceit, and diehard adolescence, ...

DEF LEPPARD – AND THERE WILL BE A NEXT TIME…

Posted in: What's New | No Comments

Def Leppard are a well oiled touring machine and fans will get to enjoy the fruits of that live experience on the band’s next release, a concert CD/DVD or CD/BLU-RAY titled And There Will Be a Next Time — Live From Detroit. The video disc and two‐disc CD will arrive on Feb. 10 from Eagle Rock Entertainment and will also be available in Blu‐Ray and digital video formats. The footage comes from the band’s performance at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Mich. in the Detroit area. Frontman Joe Elliott says, “I had this idea that we should film one of the shows from the 2016 tour because apart from the ‘Viva Hysteria’ shows, we hadn’t actually had a live performance filmed since 1988. With a new album out that was being so well received, it was just a case of where to do it. From the second the house lights went down, we could ...

MUMFORD & SONS –...

Earlier this year, Mumford & Sons embarked on an historic, sell-out tour of South Africa. In addition to filming this concert, they spent two all-day-and-all-night sessions at the South African Broadcasting Corporation writing and recording new songs with Baaba Maal, Beatenberg and The Very Best. The resulting “Johannesburg” mini-album was a top ten hit in June this year in their major markets (and the lead track, ‘There Will Be Time‘, went straight to number 1 in South Africa upon release in late January - the band’s first number 1 single). All of these artists appear on “Live From South Africa: Dust And Thunder”. Directed by Dick Carruthers (Led Zeppelin, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Beyoncé), the shoot took place in Pretoria, South Africa during their Gentlemen Of The Road stopover dates. The band have a handful of final dates left in North America on their Wilder Mind campaign. Live From South Africa ism available as a DVD, Blu-ray ...
