Following their triumphant on-stage reunion to help close down the legendary New Jersey club, Maxwell’s, The Bongos released the long shelved Phantom Train album. The album was recorded in the mid-80s but never released as the band splintered into other musical directions (including Richard Barone’s masterful solo records). We feature the title track today, and it really captures an amazing band at a creative peak.
The title of the new Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings album is Give the People What They Want – so apparently the people want instant classic soul music for the 21st Century.
Marla Mase‘s music can be challenging – as it combines spoken word and powerful alternative rock with meaningful lyrics and outstanding production. Whatever, this song just flat out rocks.
How about a classic Springsteen cover by Glen Hansard (The Frames, The Swell Season) which also features Eddie Vedder and Jake Clemons – who happens to be the nephew of late E Street Band Saxophonist Clarence Clemons. We can do that.
We featured a song from Frightened Rabbit’s 2013 album, Pedestrian Verse back shortly after the album was released. Since then, I’ve been reading about the band all over the internet. Coincidence? You decide. Regardless, we have another track from that album today.
Jordan Klassen is from Canada. He released his latest album Repentance back in September. Today, we have the first single from that album.
Rosanne Cash just released a new album which marks a homecoming of sorts to her native southland. Today, we have her version of a song written by her father, which comes off of one of the classic albums she made before moving up north – King’s Record Shop.
