New Releases

Rumpke Mountain Boys CDRumpke Mountain Boys - Trashgrass CD - Recorded live at a private party at StoneBarry Hill, then carefully mixed at Soap Floats recording studio in Cincinnati (a la "Live Dead"), Trashgrass is the Rumpke Mountain Boy’s first release since the addition of Memphis-bred bassist JD Westmoreland. Consisting of accomplished mandolin player Ben Gourley, Adam Copeland on acoustic guitar, Jason "Wolfie" Wolf on banjo, and Westmoreland on upright bass, Rumpke’s sound is refreshingly unique, drawing on influences such as the Grateful Dead, Ralph Stanley, Tom Waits, and Jimmy Cliff. The Rumpke Mountain Boys are known for their fun-filled live shows, the new release captures the Rumpke magic well, oozing with fiery banjo picking, amazing vocal harmonies, and impressive songwriting done by all four members. Trashgrass is organic, balanced, and most of all, FUN and their energy shines through on this release. According to Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon, The Rumpke Mountain Boys are "high energy, hot licks, cool tunes – A party waiting to happen."

Grateful Dead DVDGrateful Dead - Dawn of the Dead DVD - In the mid-1960s a new twist on contemporary rock music emerged out of San Francisco. Known as 'psychedelia', it was pioneered by a close-knit community of local bands who merged traditional American musical forms with new sounds often developed under the influence of psychedelic drugs. Bound up with the social and cultural changes of the era, it was a combination that made for a radical re-imaging of youth culture. This film traces the movements, events and sounds of those heady days, and traces the story of the definitive band of the psychedelic age, The Grateful Dead.

 

 

Led Zeppelin DVDLed Zeppelin - 1975, A Year of Living Dangerously DVD - Since their formation in 1968 Led Zeppelin had barely put a foot wrong. By 1971 they were being tagged "best band in the world" by Rolling Stone magazine, and when `Stairway to Heaven' from their redoubtable forth hit the decks and the airwaves that November, many doubted whether even the mighty Zep could reach any higher, but if '73's Houses of the Holy hinted at the band treading water, 1974 found them beginning to record what was to become arguably the most ambitious release of the bands career.

 

 

Allman Brothers - Live in MaconAllman Brothers Band -Macon City Auditorium 2/11/72 (2CD) - The third Allman Brothers archival release, and perhaps the most poignant one. Recorded in Macon, GA in February 1972, these 2 CDs present the unified front that was the five-man version of the band as it gamely carried on following the loss of Duane Allman. Powerful music, played with lots of soul and heart and passion - music like you never heard before. With five songs that have not been previously released in this archival series ("Ain't Wastin' Time No More," "Midnight Rider," "Hoochie Coochie Man," "Hot 'Lanta," and "Les Brers in A Minor), you simply have to hear this to understand its power and majesty.

Allman Brothers - Live in Nassau CDsAllman Brothers Band - Nassau Coliseum, NY 5/1/73 (2CD) - Nassau Coliseum 5/1/73, captures a phenomenal performance by the version of the Allman Brothers Band that recorded the classic album Brothers and Sisters. Rebounding from the tragic losses of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley, the ABB was once again hittin’ the note in the spring of 1973, and Nassau Coliseum 5/1/73 captures this important segment of Allman Brothers history. This two-CD release harkens back to the time when the ABB was commonly referred to as the "best damn band in the land," and is loaded throughout with incendiary performances. Play it often, and play it loud.

New Riders of the Purple Sage DVDNew Riders of the Purple Sage - The Lost Broadcasts DVD - In addition to Nelson, Dawson (on acoustic guitar), and Garcia (continuing to play pedal steel), the original line-up of the band that came to be known as the New Riders of the Purple Sage (a nod to the Zane Grey classic and the western swing combo from the 1940s led by Foy Willing) consisted of Robert Hunter on electric bass and Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart. Hunter was soon replaced by Bob Matthews, before Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead was named bassist. The most well-known version of the New Riders, referred to as the "core" by many, was Dawson, Nelson, Dave Torbert on bass, Spencer Dryden on drums, and Buddy Cage, who joined the band after about a year and a half and replaced Jerry Garcia on pedal steel.

The band in various incarnations toured supporting The Grateful Dead in the early 1970s, but by 1971 the last of the Grateful Dead alumni had left and Spencer Dryden late of Jefferson Airplane had joined on drums. The songs on this DVD come from 29th May 72, apart from the last version of Truck Driving Man which is dated 29th June 72.

Lotus - Build CDLotus - Build CD - Built on a foundation of beats evoking vinyl breaks, house and big-beat, the latest album from Lotus is a funky dance party from start to finish. The ten tracks on Build showcase live drums, guitar, organ, and horns that come drenched in classic analog luxuriance, with electronic elements peppered throughout. This is the sound of a band that has spent years rocking live crowds distilled to a strong studio concentrate of body-moving beats and muscular melodies.

“This album was recorded live to analog tape in studios in Philadelphia and St. Louis. We used live drums, guitar, bass, Hammond organ, upright piano, analog synths, live percussion, and live horns from the group Rubblebucket, then peppered in electronic elements. The project was mixed through an analog process to give it a deep richness. These songs were written over the course of the past 2 years and road-tested across the country.

I think this our tightest and best sounding album yet. The songs have a largeness that match Lotus move from clubs into premier venues around the country.” – Luke Miller

Jerry Garcia Band CDsJerry Garcia Band - Capital Theatre 3/1/80 (3CDs) - The first release from the newly-launched Garcia Live series features a recording from the historic Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey on March 1, 1980. The band performed an early and a late show on this evening, as was common at the time. The shows were originally multi-tracked on a 24-track mobile rig for WNEW's broadcast of the early show.

The band, which included Garcia on guitar and vocals, partner in crime John Kahn on bass, Ozzie Ahlers on Keys and Johnny de Foncesca on drums at the time, was wrapping up a three-week East Coast run with the performances on this evening. Highlights including a take on the Jimmie Rodgers penned rave-up, "That's All Right," an early show encore of "Deal" and a rollicking version of "That's What Love Will Make You Do" show Jerry and the band loose and fluid at the end of the tour.

Sol Driven TrainSol Driven Train - Underdog CD - This 10-song collection strives to capture the energy of this Charleston, SC band's dynamic live show while serving as a culmination of their years together on the road and in the studio. The result is Sol Driven Train's most concise and song-oriented album to date. Averaging 150 live dates per year, Sol Driven Train will support the release of Underdog with a heavy 2013 schedule of festival, club, and radio appearances.

Fully funded with fan support through Kickstarter and recorded at Charleston Sound, Underdog features a cast of Charleston guest musicians including 2012 American Idol finalist Elise Testone. The album explores the diverse components of sounds found in American roots music; from the gritty guitar rock licks of the opening title track, and the blues-tinged swing of "Changed Mind" and "I Do Declare," to the lightheared, observational lyrics laden with big brass hooks of "Guest List," "Fuego Fuego, and "Lady from Chiang Mai."

Underdog is laced with consistent themes of "striving for balance within ourselves and our relationships at home," says co-frontman and guitarist Joel Timmons. "The pursuit of our collective musical dreams and the need to cultivate healthy relationships and lifestyles at home are at the heart of many of the songs on Underdog. Struggle, spiritual growth, love, and longing are all intertwined and influenced the writing on this new album. We're proud of the result of these challenges and we hope to inspire the underdog within every listener."

PapadosioPapadosio - To End the Illusion of Separation (2 CDs) - This 20 song, double disc album is dedicated to the next horizon which is revealing itself little by little. What we can tell is that we are moving away from being caught in an illusion of separation, and toward something more unified. So in that spirit, we created this conceptual collaboration between us and a team of truly amazing friends whom we have had the of pleasure of meeting along the way. In an effort to catalyze the beautiful and peaceful world that we all know is possible, we give you this collection of art as a sign that we are all moving into that space slowly but surely.

Carolina Chocolate Drops Carolina Chocolate Drops - Leaving Eden CD - North Carolina-based Carolina Chocolate Drops follow up their critically lauded label debut--2010's Grammy Award-winning Genuine Negro Jig, which reached #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers and Folk Charts--with Leaving Eden.

The Drops have toured year-round internationally since the band's inception, playing festivals such as Bonnaroo, SXSW, and Telluride and selling out concert halls and clubs. The band regularly receives critical accolades from publications such as the Seattle Times, which said "What a treat to bask in this Grammy-winning group's top-notch musicality, easy good humor and understated but sparkling showmanship with just the right dollop of historical background." And the Capital Times (Madison, WI) said, "The string band performed a joyful, high-energy show that had the packed, sweaty theater moving and cheering for the entire time. The band's sound is rooted in, and very reverent to, the traditional African-American string band sound of generations ago. But the attitude is anything but old-timey, as the band brought in hip-hop and soul elements, a no-holds-barred energy, and just a sense of playfulness to the songs."

Caravan of Thieves - FunhouseCaravan of Thieves - Funhouse CD - Channeling pop bliss through their trademark lock-tight, turn-of-the-century, bang out a beat on anything that can take it approach, The Funhouse, (operative word: fun) which is soon-to-be-released on United For Opportunity, is exemplary of a band on the high road to musical perfection. The listener closes their eyes and can taste the bacchanalia and join the fete. Tunes like "Raise The Dead," the record's single, drive the point home with impressive lift, powered by soaring crescendos and inspired gang vocals, not to mention a lyric that invites the deceased to join in the fun. "Mexico" is a dark road ramble that will, at the very least, make you wanna dance around the room, if not run off yourself. "Candy" betrays the writer's addiction to the sweet confections that sounds like Vaudeville, but feels like The Beatles' "Savoy Truffle." And on it goes, the perfect soundtrack for your trip through the tunnel and into the light. If this album can't raise the dead, nothing will. (Features Fuzz from Deep Banana Blackout and Big Fuzz!)

Keith Moody - Dreaming Out Loud CDKeith Moody - Dreaming Out Loud CD - Moody continued his same strength of song with the sophomore release of his new classic rock influenced album, Dreaming Out Loud. "With this album I have a sound that is unique to me" states Moody. "The sound is big yet stripped down, using the basic instrumentation you might hear from 4 or 5 piece rock bands, letting the songs carry the performance and do most of the work. I am excited for everyone to hear this record. I hit on some subjects both personal and broad that people can relate to in their own way." The debut single, "One Big Ending" video features a young woman who has always done what was expected and then decides to pursue her dreams. The first track, "Long Way Up", personifies the tough but often rewarding journey of fighting for what you want out of your life, battling obstacles but never giving up. Then there is the most upbeat song of the album, "Up", which is all about finding that perfect person. The many influences of Keith's journey are reflected throughout the album in songs such as "New Distraction", "Lay It Down Easy", "Already Home", "I Don't Know (Who the Bad Guys Are Anymore)" and "Plastic Hearts".

Sister Sparrow & the Dirty BirdsSister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds - Pound of Dirt CD - Brooklyn's own Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds deliver an eclectic and timeless mix of gritty blues, soul, funk and garage rock. Led by the dynamic, soulful and sexy Arleigh Kincheloe and her brother Jackson on harmonica, SSDB are one of the must see live acts of 2012.

The tight-knight collective's nine endlessly talented musicians have performed alongside artists ranging from Dr. John and Wynton Marsalis to Beyonce and Hercules and Love Affair, creating an undeniably original and raucous sound that is at the core of the group s new album 'Pound Of Dirt,' out February 28th 2012 on Modern Vintage Recordings.

Galactic - Carnivale ElectricosGalactic - Carnivale Electricos CD - It's incredible that GALACTIC has never made a carnival album yet, but now it's here.

To make CARNIVALE ELECTRICOS, the members of GALACTIC (Ben Ellman, harps and horns; Robert Mercurio, bass; Stanton Moore, drums and percussion; Jeff Raines, guitar; Rich Vogel, keyboards) draw on the skills, stamina, and funk they deploy in the all-night party of their annual Lundi Gras show that goes till sunrise and leads sleeplessly into Mardi Gras day.

GALACTIC was formed eighteen years ago in New Orleans, and they cut their teeth playing the biggest party in America: Mardi Gras, when the town shuts down entirely to celebrate. CARNIVALE ELECTRICOS is beyond a party record. It's a carnival record that evokes the electric atmosphere of a whole city - make that, whole cities - vibrating together all on the same day, from New Orleans all down the hemisphere to the mighty megacarnivals of Brazil. Armed with a slew of carnival-ready guests--including Cyril and Ivan Neville, Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, Moyseis Marques, Casa Samba, the KIPP Renaissance High School Marching Band, and Al "Carnival Time" Johnson (who remakes his all-time hit)--GALACTIC whisks the listener around the neighborhoods to feel the Mardi Gras moment in all its variety of flavors.

New Releases:

Turbine - Blue Light City CDTurbine - Blue Light City CD - Working closely with producer John Davis, who recorded The Black Keys' Grammy winning song Tighten Up off their recent album, Brothers, Turbine puts forth an album that guitarist Jeremy Hilliard describes as, "By far, the best our music has ever been presented."

Blue Light City is laced with subtle intricacies that listeners might glance over without even noticing. The music is dotted with odd time signatures, unorthodox structures, and innovative applications to the instruments. Yet, what makes Blue Light City such a stellar listen is despite the nearly endless complexities in the music, the album barrels along in nonstop fun. The songs are catchier than ever without jeopardizing the band's musical training and respect for sophistication.

Turbine has quickly gained a devoted audience who have come to expect the unexpected. Chosen by Relix Magazine as "Artists on the Verge", they can scratch like a DJ with their harmonicas, turn an electric guitar into a silver fiddle, and sing three-part harmonies over wild, high-energy sci-fi rock soundscapes.

Hailing from New York City, Turbine has graced the stage at almost every major festival across the country including Bonnaroo, Wakarusa, 10K Lakes, Gathering of the Vibes, and Telluride Bluegrass just to name a few. They have also been fortunate enough to perform with many influential bands including the Del McCoury Band, the Benevento-Russo Duo, and moe. With Blue Light City, the band hopes to take the next step and reach that level of notoriety for themselves.

Thievery Corporation - CToubab Krewe - TK2 CDToubab Krewe - TK2 CD - Asheville, NC's Toubab Krewe takes the African guitar sound pioneered by Ali Farka Toure and others to strange and wonderful new places on their Nat Geo Music debut, TK2. Formed in 2005, Toubab Krewe has tenaciously honed their craft through relentless touring and a fierce dedication to carving out something they can truly call their own. The fruits of this hard work can be heard on the scintillating TK2. What Justin Perkins (Kora, Kamelngoni, guitar, percussion), Teal Brown (drums, congas), Drew Heller (guitar, piano, fiddle), David Pransky (bass, guitar), and Luke Quaranta (Djembe, percussion) have wrought on TK2 reflects the many miles and musical journeys that have transpired since their studio debut five years ago.

 

Beatlejam - Live at BB Kings CDBeatlejam - Live at BB Kings CD - Live show from band made founded by Gov't Mule's Matt Abts, along with Slick Aguilar (Jefferson Starship), Johnny Neel (Allman Bros), Vince Welnick (Grateful Dead)and Berry Oakley (Allman Bros).

Jackass Flats - Rusty Feeling CDJackass Flats - Rusty Feeling CD - Nearly a decade ago, Jackass Flats began their journey as a bluegrass band chasing the scene up and down the east coast: country festivals in the middle of nowhere, bars, dives, late nights, busking in the cities, life in a van--these things will leave you with stories to tell and that's exactly what Jackass Flats did; releasing two acclaimed albums of original songwriting: "Purgatory Mountain" and "Greetings From Jackass Flats". The boys kept the old van, but soon found themselves playing the region's premiere stages and festivals.

As Jackass Flats closes in on a decade of existence, they've expanded their line up to include drums, keys, and pedal steel--propelling their sound from string band to "full tilt Americana juggernaut". With so many instruments at their disposal, the typical set finds the band everywhere from bluegrass, rockabilly, honky tonk, country, western swing, all with the energy and edge that has made the Jackass Flats show a must see.

In June of 2011 the boys released their album, "Rusty Feeling." The album was recorded and produced by Bobby Read (Bruce Hornsby Band, Keller Williams). An album whose songs range from raucous and rowdy bluegrass, to the textured and melodic sounds of progressive (non-nashville) country.



Coming Soon:

Rodrigo y Gabriela - Live in France CD - Rodrigo y Gabriela are riding high on the global success of their Hans Zimmer collaboration on Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides; which has recently just enjoyed the biggest global opening weekend in the history of the movies.

Summer's here and the time is right for Rod & Gab's first love: wowing crowds in the big fields across Europe & North America. To coincide with their tour dates, ATO Records is set to release Live In France, recorded at various venues around the Fifth Republic on the 11:11 world tour.

It's a very different live document to 2008's Live In Japan, which marked the end of Rod & Gab's seated performances. Their live shows are constantly evolving and the 11:11 tour mixed deft acoustic dexterity with an electrifying shred-fest of white hot duelling guitars. No chairs then, but plenty of FX pedal hopping and feet on the monitors rocking. The album captures this fusion framed by rapturous receptions from their fanatical legion of French followers.

Abstract Logix LiveAbstract Logix Live: The New Universe Music Festival 2010 (2 CDs) - On November 20 and 21, 2010, maverick record label Abstract Logix hosted a series of spectacular performances, featuring an array of artists who handily defy genre categorization in favor of unbridled expression. The first New Universe Festival was a die-hard music lover's dream, defined by artists who seamlessly mingle compositional ingenuity and improvisational grace and fervor. This coming September, Abstract Logix will also release a 2 DVD set, featuring a generous selection of festival performances and bonus material (additional performances, interviews, and more), filmed in high-definition throughout the event.

Among the featured musicians were pioneering guitarist John McLaughlin and his current band the 4th Dimension with special guest, world music legend tabla maestro Zakir Hussain; Widespread Panic guitar hero Jimmy Herring with his electric band; Return to Forever Drummer Lenny White; the all-star quartet Human Element (keyboardist Scott Kinsey, bassist Matt Garrison, percussionist Arto Tuncboyaciyan; fearless guitarist and improviser Wayne Krantz appearing with the amazing Anthony Jackson on bass; visionary Indian composer and drummer Ranjit Barot; and emerging guitar visionary Alex Machacek.

''I feel honored to participate,'' says festival headliner John McLaughlin, while on tour promoting his Grammy-nominated album To the One. ''My life has been dedicated to my instrument and music, and I continue to devote myself to music in order to be worthy of such a privilege. You will hear the kind of complicity that exists between us all this is a very special element, and frankly essential for making good music.''

Jimmy Herring very succinctly put it, ''This is real music played by real people, happening in real time. We're up there listening and reacting to one another, and people genuinely respond to the risks we take. This is human music in a mechanized age.'

John Butler Trio - Live at Red Rocks (2 CD/DVD)John Butler Trio - Live at Red Rocks (2 CD/DVD) - On June 4, 2010, the internationally acclaimed John Butler Trio played the largest headlining concert of its career at the majestic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO, joined by Native American dancers and an electrified crowd. The concert instantly became a career benchmark and will receive a gorgeous 3-disc live DVD/CD box set release as 'The John Butler Trio: Live At Red Rocks' on ATO Records July 19.

The 3-disc box set package features two audio CDs with live versions of songs from Butler's three studio albums and one 140-minute full-length DVD that includes the entire, uninterrupted concert, behind the scenes footage and the official video for 'Revolution,' the epic opening track from Butler's 'April Rising' (2010.)

'Live at Red Rocks' highlights Butler's prodigious guitar skills, powerful songwriting and the transcendental live performance he delivers with Byron Luiters (bass) and Nicky Bomba (drums.) It showcases the innovative, rhythmically complex, diverse and playful sound that has garnered the JBT a devoted fan base worldwide.

Rev Payton's Big Damn Band - Payton on Patton CDRev Payton's Big Damn Band - Payton on Patton CD - A lot of folks will tell you that Robert Johnson was the King of the Delta Blues. But for god's sake don't say it in front of Reverend Peyton.

The guitar-wielding leader of The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band has no problem praising Johnson and his incredible body of work. "But there's only one King of the Delta Blues, and his name was Charley Patton," Peyton said. "I'll go toe-to-toe with anyone who says different." This summer Peyton and his band will release a powerful tribute to their hero in the form of Peyton on Patton. The 13-track CD will exclusively feature songs written and recorded by Patton during his brief recording career, which came to an end upon his premature death in 1934. Peyton on Patton will be released July 19 by SideOneDummy Records.

During his lifetime and for nearly a quarter of a century afterward, Charley Patton was regarded almost universally as the preeminent Delta bluesman. He spent his formative years at Dockery Plantation near Ruleville, Mississippi, where he influenced future blues and gospel stars including the aforementioned Robert Johnson, as well as Son House, Willie Brown, Pops Staples, John Lee Hooker and Howlin' Wolf. His flamboyant performance style was widely emulated and his songs frequently covered. During a five-year period, Patton recorded nearly 60 songs for Paramount Records.

The new CD Peyton on Patton features a number of Patton's best-loved blues songs including "A Spoonful Blues," "Mississippi Boweavil Blues" and "Tom Rushen Blues," as well as Patton-penned spirituals like "Jesus Is A Dying Bed Maker," "Prayer of Death, Part 1" and "You're Gonna Need Someone (When You Come to Die)". The CD also includes three radically different versions of "Some of These Days I'll Be Gone" featuring varying instrumentation and recorded in different keys and arrangements.

Last Week:

Ultraviolet Hippopotamus CDUltraviolet Hippopotamus - Square Pegs, Round Holes CD - In an era which seems like everything has been done before, Ultraviolet Hippopotamus has carved themselves a niche sound of its own with genuinely heartfelt, imaginative lyrics coupled with compelling composition and explosive instrumentation. The music created by this five piece band from Grand Rapids, Michigan, is progressively diverse, often switching between many different genres during the course of a show. Sometimes even throughout the duration of a song. Their live shows have become an avenue for the band to build upon the core of their songs, exploring new ground, creating tension and taking risks for those moments of pure improvisational ecstasy, giving fans an original experience within every show.

"... UV Hippo provides hope for the future of jam bands and the jam scene..." -Marquee Magazine

Thievery Corporation - Culture of Fear CDThievery Corporation - Culture of Fear CD- With over 1.2 million albums sold in the U.S. across 15 years of making music, Thievery Corporation serves up their sixth studio album titled Culture of Fear. They continue to blend musical styles in their trademark fashion; space-rock jams lead to hip-hop inspired grooves, airy down-temp trances and dub-reggae infused vibes throughout the journey.

Over the years, Thievery Corporation has become known for the carnival-esque atmosphere of their live shows, during which they bring out a 15-member live band of musicians and vocalists. The group has sold out shows at such famed venues as the Hollywood Bowl, London's 02 Shepherds Bush Empire, and the Theatro Vrahon Melina Merkouri in Athens, Greece, among many others.

Kevin Kinsella - Great Design CDKevin Kinsella - Great Design CD - 2011 sees Kevin Kinsella heading in an exciting new direction. With the release of his third solo album "Great Design", Kinsella expands his sonic palette with elements of acoustic rock and soul, while maintaining his roots in reggae. "Great Design" showcases his agility as a songwriter; Kinsella's combination of styles is deeply evocative and accessibly upbeat, summoning the likes of Jack Johnson & Michael Franti. It's "Thanks and Praise" music with wide commercial appeal.

From founding reggae heavyweights John Brown's Body, to starting his own independent label, I-Town Records, to recording with the mysterious and prolific roots reggae outfit 10 Ft. Ganja Plant, Kevin Kinsella has flourished in establishing a contingent of talented young artists. Now it's time for Kevin to focus his massive talents on his solo efforts. He has been busy over the last few years writing and recording songs for "Great Design" and is now ready to have you fall in love again with his timeless songwriting and memorable melodies.

We look forward to having Kevin tour continuously throughout 2011 and well beyond. He is already well known in jam band circles for extensive tours both as a solo artist and with John Browns Body, sharing the stage with such luminaries as Burning Spear, Toots and the Maytals, Gym Class Heroes and Michael Franti & Spearhead. Be on the lookout for Kevin, who will be touring in support of "Great Design", starting with dates in April with jam band kings Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad.
