Low “So Blue”

Low has been teasing songs for their new album The Invisible Way due out March 19th, but the newest release "So Blue" really caught my attention and not just because it was produced by Jeff Tweedy.  The song's slow build and pounding piano along with Mimi Parker's vocal make from one stunning track...

Jim James – Regions of Light & Sound of God

If you are even a casual fan of My Morning Jacket or the band's enigmatic frontman Jim James then you have probably already read the many articles describing James' inspiration for his new the album, the parallels his life made to the 1929 graphic novel God's Man and his deep love for the ever c...

Kurt Vile “Wakin’ On a Pretty Day”

Having caught Kurt Vile live a few years back I was instantly drawn to his moody vocals and catchy melodies.  I immediately dove into his back catalog and as a fan of his last album Smoke Ring for My Halo, I was anxious to hear the new single, which did not disappoint.  Perfectly titled "Wakin' On...

Kauffman is the brains behind the rather successful music ...

Josh Ritter – Joy To You Baby

It seems like forever since we last heard from Josh Ritter and his not-so-newly-minted Royal City Band. Coming almost three years after the sweeping grandeur that was So Runs The World Away, comes The Beast in It's Tracks, the latest full length due in stores 3/5/13. In addition to a little down hom...

Jim James – “Know Til Now”

When Jim James announced his solo album, as a My Morning Jacket fan I had mixed emotions. Would this solo venture take away from the MMJ I know and love? Does this mean the band will stop touring? What if it creates a riff where the other band mates feel left out and it ripples into a "Stillwater E...

Listen: New Songs The Walkmen

The Walkmen released their new album Heaven not too long ago, but that won't stop them from hooking up fans with two new tunes to enjoy. "Dance With Your Partner" and "Vermeer '65" were recorded at the time of the album and would have fit in seamlessly with the other 13 tracks, but for some reason d...

Watch: Jeff Lynne “Mercy, Mercy”

Jeff Lynne may have been in hiding for awhile, but it looks like he's back with avengence. Although Lynne has mainly been a producer in recent years he has some good news for all his patient Electric Light Orchestra fans out there. Apparently Lynne has be remastering ELO's greatest hits in his spare...

Today, a little more than 50 years after the start of his recording career Bob Dylan released "Duquesne Whistle," the first track from his LP #36, Tempest. Penned with Robert Hunter of Grateful Dead fame the new tune finds Dylan alive and well and more than whets the whistle for the upcoming al...
