Stream Jackie Greene’s New EP, 'The Modern Lives Vol. 1'

Today we’re excited to bring you the premiere of Jackie Greene’s new EP, The Modern Lives Vol. 1. The EP—which releases tomorrow via Blue Rose Music—was self-recorded and produced by Greene in Brooklyn.

On The Modern Lives Vol. 1, Greene draws inspiration from some of the great social paradoxes of our 21st-century world—that the technology designed to simplify our lives can actually complicate them in ways we’d never imagined, that the most crowded cities can actually be the loneliest places to live, and that the constructs meant to connect us to each other can actually leave us feeling more isolated than ever.

Since the release of his critically acclaimed debut album Gone Wanderin’, Greene has built an endearing audience through a relentless touring schedule with the likes of B.B. King, Mark Knopfler, Susan Tedeschi and Taj Mahal.

In just the last four years, he has played lead guitar with the Black Crowes on their Layin’ Down with #13 World Tour, recorded and toured with Trigger Hippy his supergroup with Joan Osborne—and performed more than 250 shows of his own, all while continuing to record and release his solo work. Greene is a frequent member of Phil Lesh & Friends and sits in with countless other artists, including Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gov’t Mule, Mississippi All-Stars, Amy Helm, Steve Earle and Bob Weir.

Check out the premiere of The Modern Lives Vol. 1

You can imagine John Peel’s hurriedly inaccurate summation of a cold and unforgiving Swedish winter as he juxtaposes the big-jumper-like welcoming warmth of Hater. Their lush and tempered guitars are an almost Marr-approved Smiths-like foil for Caroline Landahl’s beautifully accented and accentuated vocal – it’s a heartwarming brew.

“We know little of their home town, Malmo,” Peel might have mused, caught up in Hater’s minor chord world weariness, “ Indeed. Hater are new to the game. This year’s well-received debut album, ‘You Tried’ earned comparisons to Alvvays, The Pretenders and even Jefferson Airplane, eclectic for sure, but that’s just incidental.

Their new EP distinguishes their very own super polished and intricate guitar-led dreamy pop. Featuring their first single for Fire Records, the wonderfully forlorn and truly lovesick ‘Blushing’ (we’ve all been there) and ‘Rest’ with its haunting monosyllabic guitar break, a super-clean chiming motif that seems like a closing salvo before it regains momentum and brings proceedings to a suitable climax, welcoming back Landahl for one last chorus.

The echoey eeriness of ‘Red Blinders’ could have come right out of the bubble blowing indie pop hey days of the early ‘80s, while ‘Penthouse’ is a chunkier c86 groove with a wind blowing through its motorik rhythm.

Hater release their new EP ‘Red Blinders’ on December 1st on Fire Records.

“Their ability to effortlessly write songs that are devastating in their lyrical impact yet bewitching to hear is only rivaled by a few.” Revue

“Their unique take on rock music feels familiar and lived-in, taking bits from indie-pop, post-punk, and classic rock.” Stereogum

“Gorgeous, achingly bittersweet vocals, perpetually swaying between comforting and devastating.” Gorilla Vs Bear

Next month Bob Seger releases a new album  “I Knew You When” is scheduled to arrive November 17th in stores, the veteran rocker has revealed some of the details surrounding the set.

It marks Seger’s 18th studio release — and arrives on the 49th year of his long-standing association with Capitol Records, making him the longest-tenured solo artist in the label’s history. According to the press release announcing the milestone, Seger’s discography now includes 13 platinum and seven multi-platinum sales awards, as well as a diamond certification for selling 10 million copies of his Greatest Hits LP. I Knew You When which follows the 2014 release of Seger’s most recent collection of new material,

“I Knew You When” collects a blend of covers and originals, as well as material that was earlier part of the trove of recordings Seger assembled for Ride Out. The sessions clearly found him in a reflective state of mind with respect to the spate of classic rockers we’ve lost over the last several years; the record’s first single, “Busload of Faith,” is a Lou Reed cover, and a tribute to Seger’s longtime friend Glenn Frey closes out the deluxe edition of the LP — which is dedicated to the Eagles co-founder’s memory.

The new album ‘I Knew You When’ due out November 17th featuring “Busload of Faith”:

Some bands make music, some make magic, and some others do both, and there was Fleetwood Mac….
I would love to dedicated this project to the wonderful people of Fleetwood Mac and also, of couse, my thanks to all the bands present on this project.
With love and respect
Renato Malizia

Neil Young should have been on top of the world in 1973. The incredible success of Harvest finally took him out of CSNY’s shadow, “Heart of Gold” had become a Number One hit in 1972, and a 62-date arena tour sold out all over America. But the death of Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten, a painful back disorder and the endless infighting of his backing band turned the tour into an endless slog. He had a ton of hits by this point, but he opted to devote a big chunk of the set to gloomy, brand new tunes like “L.A.,” “Don’t Be Denied” and “Yonder Stands The Sinner.” The new songs were captured on the live LP “Time Fades Away”. But it was greeted by a collective shrug when it came out in 1973 and its also been out of print for decades, but Neil diehards recognize it as an absolute classic and original vinyl copies are highly prized. Unsurprisingly, Young has a wildly different take. “My least favorite record is “Time Fades Away,” he said in 1987.

There are so many albums in Neil Young‘s catalog that most fans wouldn’t miss a stray out-of-print entry or two. But that isn’t the case with his infamous “lost” 1973 live release, Time Fades Away.
Mostly recorded on a disastrous tour that found Young and his band slowly falling apart over 62 shows in early 1973, Time Fades Away should have come at a moment of triumph, since it arrived in the wake of his hugely successful Harvest LP. Platinum sales often bring their own set of problems, however, and for Neil Young, mainstream stardom proved a burden that started chafing almost immediately. “I felt like a product, and I had this band of all-star musicians that couldn’t even look at each other,” Young reflected in a 1987 interview. “It was a total joke.”
Of course, Young being Young, he didn’t exactly make the tour easy on himself, chiefly by opting to perform previously unreleased material for crowds expecting to hear the hits. Going on to call Time Fades Away “my least favorite record” and “the worst record I ever made” in the same 1987 interview, Young explained, “As a documentary of what was happening to me, it was a great record. I was onstage and I was playing all these songs that nobody had heard before, recording them, and I didn’t have the right band. It was just an uncomfortable tour. It was supposed to be this big deal — I just had Harvest out, and they booked me into 90 cities.”
At this point, it’s hard to say who the “right band” would have been for Young, whose mental state grew progressively darker during the tour. All the same, the bloom was probably off the rose from the moment that former Crazy Horse guitarist Danny Whitten, who’d been slated to join Young’s band the Stray Gators for this series of dates, ended up being sent home to sober up  and soon died of a heroin overdose. The bad vibes grew to the point that drummer Kenny Buttrey quit partway through, replaced by the Jefferson Airplane‘s Johnny Barbata, and eventually, Young developed a throat infection that made things even worse.

Once Young and his crew actually started turning the tapes into an album, the problems continued, due to his decision to record using a new and fairly wonky digital mixing board whose idiosyncrasies left the whole thing sounding less than pristine. As a document of the state Young was in at the time, it was probably appropriate, but once it came time to try and remaster it for the CD format, they realized they’d have to go back to the original tapes and remix the shows all over again.
Still, there have been plans to reissue Time Fades Away on CD, most notably in 1995, when Young went so far as to schedule a November street date for the remastered disc. It was pulled before it ever got to stores, although test pressing copies have circulated for years (and ended up on YouTube, as you’ll hear in the video at the top). And in the vaults is apparently where Young intends for it to stay, despite the wishes of a growing number of fans — some of whom have signed a petition clamoring for its release.
In typically idiosyncratic fashion, in fact, it sounds like Young will release a Time Fades Away sequel before he ever sends the original to CD. Discussing his plans for the second volume of his Archives box with Guitar World in 2009, he mused, “One thing I’ll tell you about the next volume of Archives is that Time Fades Away II is in there. And it’s interesting because the whole thing has a different drummer than what was on that album. I switched drummers halfway through the tour — Kenny Buttrey was in there for the first half, and Johnny Barbata came in for the second. It’s a completely different thing, with completely different songs. So that’s interesting. There’s lots of stuff like that that I’m working on right now for the second volume.”
