Amos Lee: LIVE at Red Rocks

Amos Lee: LIVE at Red Rocks
When Amos Lee rolled into Red Rocks in August 2014 he had been on tour for almost a year in support of his fifth studio album Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song, but this concert in particular was something special. His first headlining date at the legendary venue, and backed by the Colorado Symphony with arrangements composed just for that evening. Lucky for us, the experience was captured.


 

Heartless Bastards: Restless Ones

Heartless Bastards: Restless Ones

Heartless Bastards: Restless Ones

Heartless Bastards have spent the past decade in motion, boldly pushing their unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll into new shapes over four acclaimed albums and nearly non-stop roadwork. Now, with RESTLESS ONES, the band sets out once again, blazing a path to a place of shifting moods, seasoned songcraft, and unbridled spontaneity. Heartless Bastards’ fifth studio recording and follow-up to 2012’s breakthrough ARROW, the album finds singer/songwriter Erika Wennerstrom exploring as-yet-unvisited avenues of sound and sensation, her bravery and ambition readily apparent in the emotional timbre and the sheer physicality of her songs.

Sonny Landreth: Bound By The Blues

Sonny Landreth: Bound By The Blues

Sonny Landreth: Bound By The Blues

Sonny Landreth’s new album Bound By The Blues marks a return to the slide guitarist’s musical roots.

Muse: Drones

Muse: Drones

Muse: Drones

the seventh album from the UK arena rockers. Co-produced by Muse and Robert John “Mutt” Lange, the album contains 12 tracks including the single “Dead Inside.” Frontman Matt Bellamy explains the album’s themes, “To me, ‘Drones’ are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behavior with no recourse. The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. Drones explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors.” Muse have sold 17 million albums worldwide. Their 2012 album The 2nd Law topped the charts in 21 countries including the UK.

Pete Townsend's Classic Quadrophenia

Pete Townsend’s Classic Quadrophenia

He’s Baaaack…
Pete Townshend has created a new orchestral version of one of The Who’s landmark albums – Quadrophenia. The new incarnation of this classic rock opera is the latest chapter in Townshend’s lifelong mission to break the three-minute mould of the traditional pop song and take rock music to a higher artistic level. In the 1960s he defined the concept of the ‘rock opera’ with Tommy, taking it a stage further with Quadrophenia. Conceived and written by Pete in 1973, Quadrophenia went on to become an iconic feature film. The new ‘symphonised’ version of Quadrophenia, an album originally released by The Who in 1973, was orchestrated by Rachel Fuller, a professional composer, orchestrator and singer-songwriter. Performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Oriana Choir conducted by Robert Ziegler. Includes vocals by Alfie Boe, Billy Idol, Phil Daniels and Townshend.

So you wanted
to take a break
Slow it down some and
have some space

Well fuck you too
Give me my money back
Give me my money back
you bitch
I want my money back
(And don’t forget to give
me back my black T-Shirt)
~Ben Folds (Song For The Dumped)

See you on the Avenue!

NEW Releases for the week of June 2, 2015


NEW RELEASES
for the week of June 2,2015:

Florence + the Machine: HB3

Florence + the Machine: HB3

Florence + the Machine: HB3
How Big How Blue How Beautiful Produced by Markus Dravs (Björk, Arcade Fire, Coldplay) with contributions from Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon and John Hill, the third album by Florence + the Machine is live-sounding, tune-rich, unhinged in all the right places and powerful in all the best ways. In voice and, ultimately, outlook Florence has never sounded better.


 

Willie Nelson + Merle Haggard: Django and Jimmie

Willie Nelson + Merle Haggard: Django and Jimmie

Willie Nelson + Merle Haggard: Django and Jimmie
Helmed by Nelson’s longtime producer, collaborator and friend Buddy Cannon, Django and Jimmie premieres 14 brand-new studio recordings including: “Django and Jimmie,” a dual tribute to jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and Jimmie Rodgers, country music’s mythic “Singing Brakeman”; the reflective and meditative “Live This Long”; “Missing Ol’ Johnny Cash,” an homage to country music’s original Man in Black featuring guest vocals from Bobby Bare; a sublime interpretation of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright”; and the future outlaw country classic “Unfair Weather Friend,” written by rising songsmiths Marla Cannon-Goodman (Buddy Cannon’s daughter) and Ward Davis. A legendary country music producer and songwriter in his own right, Buddy helped pen five of the album’s tracks. Among the 14 essential recordings on Django and Jimmie, Nelson and Haggard each pay musical tribute to the other through heartfelt solo performances: Willie singing Merle’s “Somewhere Between” and Merle covering Willie’s “Family Bible.”.


 

Dawes: All Your Favorite Bands

Dawes: All Your Favorite Bands

Dawes: All Your Favorite Bands
2015 album by the Los Angeles-based outfit. All Your Favorite Bands, produced by David Rawlings, is Dawes’ fourth studio album. Dawes has been lumped into genres such as folk-rock and Americana yet they belong to no specific musical trend. Like The Byrds, Jackson Browne, The Eagles, Warren Zevon, Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills & Nash, the melting-pot that is California has informed their sound and created something that rises above any musical movement. Like Wilco, The Jayhawks and other like-minded bands, Dawes do not let labels define them. Dawes is composed of brothers Taylor (guitars and vocals) and Griffin Goldsmith (drums), along with Wylie Gelber (bass) and Tay Strathairn (keyboards).

Melody Gardot: Currency of Man

Melody Gardot: Currency of Man

Melody Gardot: Currency of Man
Highly anticipated 2015 release. Currency of Man is an intensely creative milestone, transcending musical distinctions of jazz, blues and R&B, to offer a stirring social and musical statement. On the album, Melody joins forces again with Grammy Award-winning producer Larry Klein. This striking musical partnership saw their last collaboration, 2009’s My One and Only Thrill, sell over 1.5 million copies, and produce songs that have become modern classics. Currency of Man marks a substantial leap forward indeed, as we see Gardot take her gift for songwriting in a completely different direction to her last record, the critically acclaimed release The Absence.


 

Jamie xx: In Colour

Jamie xx: In Colour

Jamie xx: In Colour
The eleven track LP includes previous releases ‘Girl’ and ‘Sleep Sound’ as well as forthcoming single ‘Loud Places, ‘ which features vocals from Romy Madley Croft. The release of In Colour comes on the back of an incredible six year creative period for Jamie xx, which has seen him alternate effortlessly between his role as founding member and producer of The xx, and creator of more electronic and club orientated music as Jamie xx. A string of acclaimed productions in recent years including debut solo single ‘Far Nearer, ‘ remixes for the likes of Adele, Radiohead and Florence & The Machine, production work for Drake and Alicia Keys plus We’re New Here – Jamie’s seminal reworking of Gil Scott-Heron’s final studio album – hinted at what was to come. With In Colour – a bold, celebratory, emotional record that features collaborations with The xx band mates Romy Madley Croft (‘Seesaw’ and ‘Loud Places’) and Oliver Sim (‘Stranger In A Room’), Young Thug and Popcaan (‘Good Times’) and Four Tet (‘Seesaw’) – Jamie delivers his definitive artistic statement.
