The Shelters fan a fresh flame with classic fuel on their second full-length, “Jupiter Sidecar”. Ebbing and flowing between rock ‘n’ roll roots, surf swagger, synth swells, and unassuming pop ambition, the Los Angeles-based group thread it all together with catchy melodic hooks. This approach quietly cemented them as a fan and critical favorite following the release of their self-titled full-length in 2016, which was produced by Tom Petty.

The Shelters returned to his Malibu studio to craft Jupiter Sidecar and to mourn the loss of their friend and mentor – and in the process learned to rely on one another like never before.

Tuscaloosa (Live)

Neil Young culled highlights from his February 5th, 1973 concert at the University Of Alabama in Tuscaloosa with The Stray Gators for a new live album entitled “Tuscaloosa”, which is due out on June 7th via Warner Bros Records. The first single from the seven-track LP is a slow and beautiful version of “Don’t Be Denied.”

This is the next installment of Neil Young’s ongoing archival series, a concert he played with the Stray Gators simply titles “Tuscaloosa”, it will come out on a single CD and a three-sided vinyl album with etched artwork on side four.

“It’s from the period right around Harvest and Tonight’s the Night,” said Young,  “For me, it’s edgy. It’s like those mellow songs with an edge. It’s really trippy to be down in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and singing those songs from Harvest and the songs that we were doing for Time Fades Away before it came out. I found this thing and it had such a great attitude to it. I just loved the whole night, so I put that together with [engineer] John Hanlon.

Neil Young + Stray Gators “Don’t Be Denied” from the upcoming album ‘Tuscaloosa” Available on June 7th.

Jenny Lewis

Jenny Lewis  has released an infectious new single titled “Wasted Youth” from her forthcoming album “On The Line”, due out Friday, March 22nd. Jenny Lewis releases her fourth solo album, On The Line – the follow up to 2014’s critically acclaimed The Voyager on Warner Bros. Records.

The 11 all new original songs were written by Lewis and recorded at Capitol Records’ Studio B, and feature a backing band of legendary talent including Beck, Benmont Tench, Don Was, Jim Keltner, Ringo Starr and Ryan Adams. The track, which sounds like vintage memorabilia in new packaging, was previously debuted during Lewis’ live-streamed hangout session/listening party for On The Line.

Other advance tracks from the album include “Heads Gonna Roll” and “Red Bull & Hennessy.” Utilize the present and listen to “Wasted Youth” below,

Jenny Lewis has confirmed her highly anticipated return with her fourth solo album, ‘On The Line’ – the follow up to 2014’s critically acclaimed ‘The Voyager’.  The 11 all new original songs were written by Lewis and recorded at B studio B, and feature a backing band of legendary talent including Beck, Benmont Tench, Don Was, Jim Keltner, Ringo Starr and Ryan Adams. Jenny has also announced her first round of 2019 headlining dates.the march-may 2019 itinerary includes stops at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium,

Late last year, Jenny Lewis teased that her new album, would be one of our most anticipated of 2019, was on its way early this year. After unleashing a pair of suspicious tweets, Lewis confirmed the new record is called On The Line, and it’s not dropping until March 22nd on Warner Bros. Records. The news arrives with the album’s first single, “Red Bull & Hennessy,” which arrived with a twinkly accompanying visualizer. “Red Bull & Hennessy” is Lewis’ first new music since her 2014 album The Voyager, and on this love song-turned-party song, she makes an invigorated return in a fit of bluesy electric guitar, “high on Red Bull and Hennessy.” She teases and taunts (“Don’t you wanna kiss me? Don’t you wanna even try?”), only to proclaim she’s “higher than you.” After five silent years, the singer/songwriter and former Rilo Kiley frontwoman is back and burning brighter than ever.

The unstoppable Jenny Lewis has shared another new track from her forthcoming album On The Line titled “Heads Gonna Roll.” The follow-up to the sultry “Red Bull & Hennessy” features Ringo Starr on drums, Benmont Tench on the organ and Don Was on bass. And with arms fully outstretched today, Lewis has also announced a string of additional 2019 dates to her already-extensive tour.

On The Line will be released on March 22 from Warner Bros. Records. Listen to its harmonic opening track, “Heads Gonna Roll,”

Sailin' Shoes

By 1972, Lowell George and his Little Feat cohorts had an acclaimed debut album under their belts but with their second album “Salin’ Shoes” the band reached another level entirely – something obvious from the opening notes of “Easy To Slip,” which stands among the great lost singles of the decade. Produced by Ted Templeman, the Warner Bros. collection features some of George’s best-loved songs, including “Cold, Cold, Cold,” “Tripe Faced Boogie,” “Teenage Nervous Breakdown”

Highlighted by a reworked group version of “Willin'”, the track that had led to Frank Zappa sacking the guitarist and vocalist Lowell George from The Mothers of Invention, it also featured such enduring tracks as “A Apolitical Blues,” Little Feat’s second quartet album, didn’t sell any better than their eponymous debut. But it offered gems a-plenty. This one showcases how George’s deep blues roots are morphing into his fluidly idiomatic slide guitar; his vocals have absorbed influences like Wolf but are becoming his own. The lyrics brandish classic Little Feat attitude: a flip-the-bird blues. It was suited to this moment, when the country was nearly exhausted by the strife between Nixon’s “silent majority” and the ongoing civil rights and antiwar movements. And the music rocks: Bill Payne, George’s primary creative alter-ego and jousting partner, unleashes his always adroit piano.

“Easy to Slip” and the title track, all by guitarist and lead vocalist Lowell George, the second co-written with Martin Kibbee, credited as “Fred Martin”, a former bandmate from The Factory, and the first appearance of the “George/Martin” credit on a Little Feat record.

Lowell George and Bill Payne don’t stop at being the writers of virile, touching songs–they’re also masterful musicians. Payne plays a cool, elegant piano and a hot, whirring organ. George makes his slide guitar howl and roar like a tractor trailer in the midst of a steep, mountainous descent. George illustrates the muscular mating of men and their machines, while Payne celebrates it. Together with former Mother Roy Estrada on bass and Richard Hayward on drums, they compose one super rock ‘n’ roll band. Little Feat can play steaming hot, iron-ore heavy, over-easy light, or non-stop speedy, as the occasion demands. They never sound pretty, but there’s an unmissable beauty about their rough-around-the-edges designs.

As seasoned L.A. music veterans, the foursome deliver performances that are pretty near immaculate and, more importantly, soulful; the roots-informed rock of these 11 tracks goes down mighty easy. If Neon Park’s cover art isn’t sufficient inspiration to kick up your heels, just give a listen to SAILIN’ SHOES It’s a true classic album. Little Feat is involved with–and living folklore. Sailin’ Shoes, interweaving its big trucks, seedy hotels, and greasy spoons with songs about rock & roll, seeks to incorporate this special music into the raw, vibrant, and vast setting of mythic America.

It was the last full Little Feat record to be produced by an outsider until 1977’s Time Loves a Hero, with each of the three interim albums being produced almost entirely by Lowell George.

Personnel:

  • Lowell George – guitar, lead (all but 10) and backing vocals, harmonica, baritone saxophone, drum machine
  • Bill Payne – Hammond organ, backing and lead vocals (10), Wurlitzer electric piano, piano, accordion
  • Roy Estrada – bass, backing vocals
  • Richie Hayward – drums, backing vocals, percussion

Orange Crate Art

Orange Crate Art is the first collaborative studio album by American musicians Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks, released in 1995 on Warner Bros. Records. The album consists mostly of songs written and arranged by Parks, with Wilson featured as lead and backing vocalist. Its title refers to the sun-drenched, idealized paintings that grace wooden fruit crates, and its theme is a nostalgic view of the history of California.

Brian Wilson and wunderkind lyricist Van Dyke Parks worked together in the mid-1960s to compose The Beach Boys’ famously shelved SMILE album; the pair re-teamed 30 years later for Orange Crate Art. “It was to extol the propagandist art that brought California a sense of realty,” notes Parks of the title song, and the entire Warner Bros. collection paints the Golden State with a nostalgic glow. That’s Wilson’s sweet spot, even if songs like “My Hobo Heart,” “Hold Back Time” and “Lullaby” recall an era that predates surf music. As on their first collaboration, the wordplay is intricate, the arrangements dense and varied, and no expense has been spared to bring in top-flight instrumentalists. This is Brian Wilson’s birthday, and while others may mark it with his ’60s hits, we’ll take a deeper dive to celebrate the late-career resurgence heard on Orange Crate Art.

Scratching The Door: The First Recordings Of the Flaming Lips

Before signing with Warner Bros. Records in 1991, the outré Oklahoma band The Flaming Lips paid their musical dues with a series of releases beginning in 1984 with a self-released EP and continuing through a series of albums on the Restless label.  Beginning in April, the Grammy-winning band will revisit their earliest years via a new reissue program from Warner Bros. and Rhino.

On April 20th, Scratching the Door: The First Recordings of the Flaming Lips will arrive.  This single-CD compilation features 19 tracks from the first iteration of the band.  It’s followed on May 25th by Seeing the Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings of The Flaming Lips 1986-1990, a six-CD box set containing all four of the Flaming Lips’ Restless albums plus two discs of rarities.  Both releases will simultaneously be released on digital download and streaming services, with over 40 tracks making their digital debut. Later in the year, Rhino Records will drop vinyl reissues, including remasters of the Restless albums and some vinyl debuts.

Scratching the Door spotlights the music recorded by the band’s original lineup including leader Wayne Coyne’s brother Mark on vocals.  It includes the band’s first and second cassette demos plus their 1984 debut EP, newly remastered from the original analog tapes.  This is the first time these seminal recordings have been collected in one place.  Showcasing the band’s influences, the set is peppered with covers such as The Who’s “Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere,” Led Zeppelin’s “Communication Breakdown,” and Neal Hefti’s “Batman Theme” (which previously was released on Rykodisc’s 2002 collection Finally the Punk Rockers are Taking Acid.)

The box set Seeing the Unseeable picks up where Scratching the Door leaves off.  It contains all four of The Flaming Lips’ Restless studio albums, originally issued between 1986 and 1990:  Hear It Is (1986), Oh My Gawd!!!…The Flaming Lips (1987), Telepathic Surgery (1989) and In A Priest Driven Ambulance (With Silver Sunshine Stares) (1990). Like the compilation, all of these have been remastered from the original master tapes.  Two discs of rarities collect up odds and ends from this period, including B-sides, flexidiscs, and one-offs from various compilations like the Sub Pop single “Strychnine/Peace, Love And Understanding” and a rendition of “After The Gold Rush” from a 1989 Neil Young tribute album.  Rounding out the box is The Mushroom Tapes, the demos for the band’s final Restless LP.  These were previously issued on the Rykodisc compilation CD The Day They Shot A Hole In the Jesus Egg.

Producer David Fridmann has remastered both releases, with the assistance of the Lips’ Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins.  Look for Scratching the Door: The First Recording of The Flaming Lips on April 20th and Seeing the Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings of The Flaming Lips 1986-1990 on May 25th, both from Warner Bros. and Rhino!

hellooooo hello HELLO! here’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. drum roll please… our new song “come through” is out today! not only is our new song out today, but the video directed by the fantastic goddess angel claire vogel, is out as well. we are really proud of this one. For many of us, Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was a lot more representative of our high school years than Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.” Luckily for young adults, and honestly anyone who enjoys quality music, up-and-coming rock band The Regrettes is pumping out honest, relatable hits that don’t shy away from life-changing experiences, both good and bad. In fact, it’s those very experiences that inspire lead singer Lydia Night, 17, when she sits down to write.

you don’t have to be a teenager or young adult to get The Regrettes. The band — comprised of Night, Genessa Gariano (20, guitar), Sage Chavis (20, bass), and Maxx Morando (19) — just released it’s dreamy, ’70s-inspired music video for “Come Through,” which is a song Night said is all about the sometimes messy power dynamics in relationships.
“It’s really easy when you’re in an insecure time in your life to let someone walk all over you,” Night said. [This song is about] how you get used to that without even realizing it. This was about realizing that was happening in my life and kind of standing up for myself. It’s really just about not being someone’s bitch.”

The live concert video was directed by Ryan Mackfall and produced by Crashburn Media.
