ADELITAS WAY – STRUCK

On their upcoming third album, Adelitas Way intensify their brand of hard-edged rock with a tighter songwriting sensibility and more brutally raw energy than ever before. To create the album, the Las Vegas-based quartet joined forces with Nick Raskulinecz (a Grammy-winning producer who’s previously worked with artists like Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters, and Queens of the Stone Age) and holed up for eight weeks of nonstop recording in a cabin deep in the woods outside Nashville. Featuring the brooding but fiery lead single “Dog on a Leash,” the follow-up to 2011’s Home School Valedictorian proves to be the most refined yet thrillingly gritty album that Adelitas Way has offered up so far. Adelitas Way has deepened their sound while staying true to the fierceness of spirit the band’s embraced since their 2009 debut (a self-titled effort featuring the chart-topping single “Invincible,” now the theme song for WWE Superstars). You can check ...

PUSS N BOOTS – NO FOOLS,...

While she’s released five studio albums, sold 40 million albums and won 9 Grammys, Norah Jones can’t seem to get enough of changing things up! By our count, this is the 100th recording project with which she’s been involved in this short century, so it’s safe to say she’s a serial collaborator, and she kills ‘em all! Puss N Boots is no different: a trio of like‐minded gals that finds Ms. Jones combining forces with pals Sasha Dobson ‐ a fixture on the NYC singer songwriter scene and a frequent NoJo cohort ‐ and Catherine Popper ‐ a noted bass player who’s played with Ryan Adams, Jack White and Grace Potter ‐ for a fun‐filled female trio. Their album NO FOOLS, NO FUN is a com‐bo of classic country tunes (Johnny Cash, George Jones covers) and roots rock pearls (Neil Young, The Band) with more recent alt‐country faves (Wilco, Jeb ...
