SOME STUFFS: Chris Robinson return with The Brotherhood for album #4

 photo ChrisRob_old_zps7xmok5of.jpg
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood are returning with a new album, their fourth, come July 29th. You’ll have to wait for almost three months to check out Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel, to be released on Robinson’s own Silver Arrow label, the label he used in the last days of The Black Crowes. You might be asking yourself “last days?” Well, they may be on hiatus but we don’t know if and when they’ll return so if you haven’t got familiar with what Robinson has been doing, catch up. Best way to begin is with a song called “Narcissus Soaking Wet”, which begins kinda trippy but is very soulful and bluesy just as you like it.

The group are heading on tour this June but they’ll begin with a one-off show next week Friday at the Cherokee Creek Music Festival in Texas. Then it’ll be time to spend the rest of spring into the Brotherhood’s arms and make the summer another great one:

May 13… Cherokee, TX (Cherokee Creek Music Festival)
June 2… Hunter, NY (Mountain Jam)
June 4… Atlanta, GA (Chandler Park Music & Food Festival)

AUDIO: The Blue Stones’ “Black Holes (Solid Ground)”


April 15th seems to be the hot release date of the moment, as I’ve already posted two things today that are coming out on that day and here’s another, one by The Blue Stones. They’re coming out with their Black Holes album and while this song is called the title track, the song is called “Black Holes (Solid Ground)” so technically it’s not a *true* title track. Nonetheless, have a listen to this and see if it gives you a charge, especially with the wonderful bursts of hard rock riffs mixed with pop delicacy. The album was co-produced with Ian Blurton.

SOME STUFFS: Audio Fidelity to release remaster of Leon Russell’s debut album

 photo AFLeonRussell_cover_zpsu7pstojr.jpg
Leon Russell is not someone you hear about too much on classic radio but that’s a shame, considering how it seemed that he was everywhere in the 1970’s. Nonetheless, fans of his music love his work and they’ll love the fact his debut album has been remastered. Audio Fidelity are going to release a hybrid SACD of his 1970 debut which featured a wide range of special guests, including what sounds like a jam session from George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass album: Eric Clapton, Merry Clayton, Bonnie Bramlett, Steve Winwood, Joe Cocker, Ringo Starr, and Harrison himself. This carried him for a successful career throughout the 1970’s and new fans will be able to hear him again with this new pressing. Capitol Records in Japan released an SACD of this two years ago but this hybrid SACD is newly remastered so it is sonically different. Since this album was not mixed in quadraphonic, the hybrid mixes involve the stereo mix. The disc will be out on April 15th.

VIDEO: Avatarium’s “Pearls And Coffin”


“Pearls And Coffin” is a new one from Avatarium, taken from their latest album The Girl With The Raven Mask (Nuclear Blast). It’s very bluesy with a nice Southern rock feel yet still feeling quite modern. The album was released this past October and you may order your copy by clicking the cover below, which will take you to Amazon.

AUDIO: Boy From The Crowd’s “Where The Bees Come To Die”


It’s a style of rock that isn’t afraid to show/share its bluesy roots, and you have Boy From The Crowd to thank for this one. Vinny Piana is the mand behind the band and together they want to treat you to “Where The Bees Come To Die” and if you like your style of rock with unadulterated grit, this one is going to make you feel filthy. The EP can be purchased from Amazon.com by clicking the cover below.

LYRIC VIDEO: Delta Deep’s “Take Me Home For Christmas”


Into hard rock but are still open to the spirit of Christmas? You may want to check out this song by Delta Deep, and who are Delta Deep, I imagine you thinking? The band consists of guitarist Phil Collen, who you’ll know as a member of Def Leppard. You’ll also know bassist Robert DeLeo from his time with Stone Temple Pilots. You may have heard vocalist Debbi Blackwell-Cook if you’ve heard music by Michael Buble and Gregory Hines. Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone you actually know a few Buble songs. If you are a fan of TLC, India.Arie, or legendary jazz group The Crusaders, you may already be a fan of drummer Forrest Robinson. Together, they share with you a song for the season called “Take Me Home For Christmas” and if you are far from home, maybe this song will become a part of you dream to be there.

REVIEW: Fur For Fairies’ self titled debut album

Fur For Fairies photo FurForF_cover_zpsjs2tss8t.jpg Susanne Kelly is the founder of Fur For Fariries and if the name sounds familiar, you may know her husband, Green Pajamas member Jeff Kelly. While Jeff Kelly is credited as producer and author of all of the songs, Susanne makes it hers and creates a world that is unique in itself but free to listen to it with the perspective of what Jeff Kelly is known for. On their self-titled debut, Susanne sings these songs that is not unlike the devotion one normally expects in works by Polly Jean Harvey, Karen O., and Kim Shattuck. Musically, Jeff Kelly goes everywhere from blunt rock to bluesy dirges, with some of the Seattle influences being somewhat obvious if you know what you’re listening to/for. In fact, as someone who has lived in the Pacific Northwest for a long time, Fur For Fairies very much sounds like a Seattle album, even though there isn’t a stereotypical Seattle sound. It just sounds like the kind of music that may have been written in the fall, made specifically during the winter, then mixed and mastered during the spring. When Susanne reaches deep into lyrics like “I feel like a boy, you feel like a girl/I bet you would taste just like the end of the end”, it is almost as if Jeff was writing directly for his wife, or you could say Susanne was saying “okay Jeff, I dare you to write what you think I’m thinking”. This is the end result. It sounds like the perfect music that is meant for times like this, where you just want to listen and phase out the rest of the world, just to be able to bathe in the textures and surroundings of these compositions. At least that’s what I think.
