ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO – BURN SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO –...

Alejandro Escovedo’s journey is one that taken him from Texas to California to New York and back again to Texas, encompassing a breadth of music as varied as the many bands he was part of before embarking on a solo career. In the 1970s, he surfaced on San Francisco’s no-holds-barred punk scene centered around the Mabuhay Gardens in North Beach, a guitarist in the Nuns; Rank & File helped unite the disparate worlds of punk and country in the 1980s; and after he moved back to Austin, the True Believers combined all manner of Americana music in a harbinger of what was to come in Alejandro’s solo career which begun in 1992 with the album Gravity. Produced by Peter Buck (R.E.M.) and Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5) Burn Something Beautiful is Alejandro’s 12th solo studio album and most definitive album to date. The album was written, arranged and performed as a true collaboration with Peter and Scott in ...

SAM ROBERTS BAND – TERRAFORM

SAM ROBERTS BAND –...

The album takes flight with the title track TerraForm, a story of escape from the ashes of a dying world. “Terraforming is the idea of going to another planet and making it viable for humans. For this record, I saw it as planting the seeds for that same sort of renewal in your own life – that regardless of how much you have broken the parts of your life along the way, there is always a chance to start over… for yourself and the people you care about” says Roberts. "Most of these songs are love songs, but love songs that grapple with it's many faces - beautiful and ugly, healing and destructive." FIEND looks back through the years, identifying LOVE as the one constant that binds us, while Black Spark shine's light on the cryptic, shadowy web that love can weave in both heart and mind. Tourist Trap takes on a cosmic love triangle between constellations, just ...

KENNY CHESNEY – COSMIC HALLELUJAH

KENNY CHESNEY – COSMIC...

With his compulsion to get the music “just right” – and his desire to inspire the wildly-impassioned No Shoes Nation – Kenny Chesney’s Cosmic Hallelujah has taken some unpredictable turns. Beyond the hot white center-of-the-moment duet with P!NK, “Setting The World On Fire,” and the creative blast of “Noise,” Cosmic Hallelujah includes “Some Town Somewhere,” the album title source’s percolating philosophy, “Trip Around the Sun,” the Tom Petty-esque coming-ofage, “All The Pretty Girls,” the breezy romance of “Bar at The End of the World,” the DIY get-out-of-towner, “Winnebago,” the homage to small town dives, “Jesus and Elvis” and the worry-jettisoning “Bucket,” as well as the priority questioning, “Rich and Miserable,” that’s Chesney’s most musically ambitious track yet.
