BUSH – THE SEA OF...

Multi-platinum rock band BUSH return with their highly anticipated new album THE SEA OF MEMORIES.   Recorded with producer Bob Rock (Aerosmith, Metallica), THE SEA OF MEMORIES is the seminal band’s first studio release in 10 years. THE SEA OF MEMORIES captures the electricity and trademark intensity of classic Bush delivered in a setting that’s fresh and alive. Songs like “The Sound of Winter,” “Heart of the Matter” and “All Night Doctors” are propelled by heavy guitar and hypnotic beats, simple song structures and sublime textures. About the album, Rossdale says, “When making music, you have a choice to repeat what you’ve done or move on.

THE JAYHAWKS –...

During their heyday in the first half of the 1990s, The Jayhawks perfected a captivating sound that seamlessly blended the elegant folk-rock of The Byrds, the adventurousness of Buffalo Springfield, the hippiebilly soulfulness of The Flying Burrito Brothers, and the soaring harmonies of The Beach Boys. So it’s richly ironic that their reappearance coincides with a dramatic resurgence of the musical approach they played such a central role in perpetuating—but this time around, The Jayhawks themselves are revered as icons by the young bands carrying on those same traditions, and it’s their own legacy that they’re advancing. On Mockingbird Time, their eighth album, and the first with the original lineup since 1995’s Tomorrow The Green Grass, they’re once again pushing the envelope in songs and performances of rarefied dynamism and grace. The album’s shapes and textures range from the string-laden grandeur of “Hide Your Colors” and the widescreen vistas of “Tiny ...
