Drive By Truckers - Go Go Boots CD - Go-Go Boots builds on their roots with the old Muscle Shoals country-and-soul sound. 'We recorded nearly 40 songs last year and into this year and fairly early on divided it into two separate albums' explains DBT co-founder Patterson Hood. 'The Big To-Do, releases first, was the more straightforward 'rock' album. Go-Go Boots is what I sometimes (semi-jokingly) refer to as our country, soul, and murder ballad album. Those elements definitely play into it, but it's a little more open ended than that.'
Drive By Truckers - The Secret to a Happy Ending DVD - This is a film about the redemptive power of rock and roll; it's about the American South, where rock was born; it's about a band straddling the borders of rock, punk and country; it's about making art, making love and making a living; it's about the Drive-By Truckers. This film documents the band and their fans as they explore tales of human weakness and redemption. With unparalleled access, this documentary encompasses three critical years of touring and recording as the band struggles to overcome trauma and survives a near breakup, in a persistent search for a happy ending.
Zach Deputy's House Party DVD - House Party is a live ZD show filmed at a great house in New Hampshire this past Summer. It's a guy's house, but he is a pro video guru-- he has done the videography and DVDs of some big tours, like Dave Matthews Band and The Pixies world tour-- and it shows in this DVD! His house is no normal house-- he has tons of lights and pro audio and camera mounts built into his big, beautiful living room. This party was crazy fun, with loads of people packed into the living room, on the porches, in the yard and dancing all around me while I played. So, here it is-- my House Party DVD!

North Mississippi Allstars - Keys to the Kingdom CD - The new album, Keys to the Kingdom, is a celebratory declaration of life in the face of death. In the beginning, a father passed away and a child was born. Luther and Cody Dickinson lost their father, Memphis music legend Jim Dickinson, only months before Luther became one. Jim had always told them, "You need to be playing music together. You are better together than you will ever be apart." Coincidentally, the Dickinson brothers were not together when Jim passed. At that moment, they were both off on their own, Luther with The Black Crowes and Cody with Hill Country Revue. So in the spring of 2010, the North Mississippi Allstars went into the studio to create a record that could help them cope with the loss, and, at the same time, rejoice in his honor. The first line of Jim's self-written eulogy was, "I refuse to celebrate death." Luther, Cody and Chris Chew took heed and aimed to celebrate life instead; and the songs for the new record, Keys to the Kingdom, came pouring out of their souls.
Matisyahu - Live at Stubbs Vol II CD / DVD - On a hot August night in Austin, TX, this past summer, Matisyahu took the stage at the famed music venue Stubb's with his band, Brooklyn's The Dub Trio, for an unforgettable live music experience. Showcasing his incredible artistic evolution, Matisyahu unveiled brand new song 'Open The Gates' and performed songs that span his lauded catalogue. Inviting the intimate crowd to join him in documenting the extraordinary energy in the room that evening, he and his audience created the musical time capsule that is now Live at Stubb's Vol. II. These songs are infused with a vibrancy that can only be created during a Matisyahu performance, beautifully displaying the one-of-a kind voice and distinctive sound that has brought him to the forefront of today's music landscape. With a re-discovered love for roots reggae and improvisation at the core of his live show, Matisyahu brilliantly re-vamped the vocal and instrumental arrangements, elevating each song to new heights. From 'Kodesh' to tracks such as 'Mist Rising,' 'Youth,' 'Darkness Into Light' and 'One Day,' Live at Stubb's Vol. II is a raw and inspiring musical journey that is sure to become a treasured part of Matisyahu s acclaimed catalogue. With prolific lyrics, anthemic choruses and his signature fusion of reggae, pop-rock, hip-hop, ska-inflected new wave and acoustic folk, Matisyahu has broken boundaries through his music and has unified millions of fans with his music and message of peace, hope and understanding.
The Bridge - National Bohemian CD - The members of The Bridge have traveled on enormous distance to get where they are; all the way from living off-the-grid on a remote Hawaiian farm in Kenny Liner's case and chafing in the button-down corporate world in Cris Jacob's to making a formidable album that's fed by hometown roots and laced with wanderlust. It's called National Bohemian, a nod to both the Baltimore-based sextet s beloved local brew and their creatively rewarding but often unglamorous hard-touring lifestyle. From the eleven new, original tracks, this much is cleat: The Bridge have come into their own, covering unbounded musical territory with no shortage of verve and striking a rare balance between high-quality songs and sharp instrumental interplay. They have the tools to see their expansive musical vision through, starting with the unorthodox nature of their lineup: string band elements powered by a plugged - in R&B and roots rock-ready rhythm section, heated by keyboard and horn and, here and there, seasoned with syncopated beatboxing.
Nathan Moore - Dear Puppeteer CD - Dear Puppeteer is a letter in 12 songs from Nathan Moore to fear, mortality, the righteous, the jailor, lost love and lost time or more simply stated, the puppet masters. 'Gonna write a letter, dear puppeteer, I don t want to play here, I don't wanna stay here,' he sings in the title track's refrain. From this opening plea it's apparent that a restless spirit is at work.
