NEW RELEASES for the week of May 13, 2016:

Rest in Chaos is the follow-up to Hard Working Americans’ critically-acclaimed 2014 releases, Hard Working Americans & The First Waltz.


Darrell Scott: Couchville Sessions

Darrell Scott: Couchville Sessions

“I look like an insider because of everything I’ve done but I always felt like an outsider,” Darrell Scott says. “And that’s important – to be an outsider.” He’s also a master. Witness his ability to make just about any instrument talk, listen to his vocals and songwriting to hear him contain every emotion between joy and pain within one verse in his singing and in his pen. Nowadays he’s taking the outsider role even more seriously; after 23 years in Nashville he spent the last year devoting himself to a self-sufficient lifestyle in the country while simultaneously putting together his best album in years. Couchville Sessions is that album, and it continues Scott’s long tradition of tackling the profound issues – loneliness, the demise of relationships, mortality – without ever becoming maudlin. The record may explore darkness but there is always light. Scott can sing to us about addiction, breaking up, even dying without it ever becoming depressing. That’s due to his writing, his vocal delivery – often erotically charged here – and the careful choice of five covers that he calls tributes to some of the masters. Scott’s tenth studio album shows no sign of him losing steam. In fact, he seems to be on fire. Born in Eastern Kentucky to restless Appalachians who moved him out West, raised by a country-music-worshipping single father, he studied poetry with Philip Levine, a celebrator of the working class who would later become the nation’s Poet Laureate. Scott has lived the songs he sings: he’s worked hard, told defiant truths, and never turned down the chance to pursue love. Along the way he has created an oeuvre of albums beloved by his devoted fans and written songs that became hits for everyone from Dixie Chicks to Travis Tritt as well as being covered by more than 70 others while never shying away from critiquing the industry. The multi-talented Grammy nominee has also been a member of Robert Plant’s Band of Joy, won the AMA Song of the Year, named ASCAP’s Songwriter of the Year and a host of other accolades.


Grateful Dead: Red Rocks 7/8/78

Corinne Bailey Rae returns with her third studio album The Heart Speaks in Whispers, following 2006’s self-titled debut, which sold five million copies worldwide, and 2010’s The Sea which earned her a Mercury Prize nomination. The Heart Speaks In Whispers is rich in fresh ideas and full of emotional energy which surges through it’s songs like electricity. Recorded both at her studio in Leeds, and in Los Angeles, the album is co-produced by Corinne with Steve Brown, her collaborator on her critically acclaimed previous album The Sea. The album features a number of notable musicians including Pino Palladino (D Angelo, Erykah Badu, The Who), James Gadson (Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers), Marcus Miller (Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock), Esperanza Spalding and Moses Sumney (best known for his work with Beck).

Jennifer Nettles: Playing With Fire

Happy 80th Birthday to Wavy Gravy!

SEVA Benefit Party!
And wouldn’t it be neat if the people that you meet
had shoes upon their feet
and something to eat
and wouldn’t it be fine,
now if all of human kind had shelter
Basic Human needs, basic human deeds, doing what comes naturally
Down in the garden, when no one is apart
Deep down in the garden, the garden of your heart
Wouldn’t it be grand if we all lend a hand so each one of us could stand on a free piece of land and wouldn’t it be thrilling if folks stopped their killing and started in tilling the land
Basic Human Needs, basic human deeds, doing what comes naturally
Down in the garden, when no one is a apart
Deep down in the garden, the garden of your heart
Not just churches, not just steeples, give me peoples helping peoples
Help your self and work out till the stars begin to shout, thank god for something to do
Wouldn’t it be daring if folks started sharing, instead of comparing, what each other was wearing
And wouldn’t it be swell if people didn’t sell their mother earth
Basic Human needs, basic human deeds, doing what comes naturally
Down in the garden, when no one is apart
Deep down in the garden, the garden of your heart
~Wavy Gravy, Saint Misbehavin’
