New Releases:

The BrewThe BrewThe BrewThe Brew - Triptych 3 CD set - Last year The Brew took stock of what they had created since 2008’s Back To The Woods. The result is their most ambitious project to date; the release of a three-album set called Triptych. Each album reflects a facet of this multitalented, New England-based group: A Garden In The Snow, showcasing song-craft; Light From Below, bringing live-show energy into the studio; Hard Enough To Break, a romp of polish and power.

Triptych: The Brew’s triple tour-de-force, hailed by seminal rock writer Steve Morse as “…raising the bar for an eclectic sound that touches everything from classic rock to Appalachian root notes and Romantic classical music, topped with dashes of art rock, psychedelia and jazz funk. It is a combination that is theirs alone.”

The Radiators - The Last WatusiThe Radiators - The Last Watusi (3 CDs) - These 3 CDs represent the best of each of the final 3 shows at Tips. The first night was an all acoustic affair mixing Rads originals with covers by Bob Dylan and Jesse Winchester. The last two discs represent a band on a mission, to go out in style and leave nothing on the table. The songs cover the entire 33 year career of the band and include fan favorites and a couple of lesser known Rad's gems. Altogether the set includes over 3 ½ hours of gritty down home Nawlins' rock n' roll that shows just how versatile the band was. Enjoy!!!
 

Disco BiscuitsThe Disco Biscuits - Otherwise Law Abiding Citizens CD - This album originally released in 2011, has finally found its way to the shelves of HGMN! Praised by many as the first studio Bisco CD in ages that actually sounds like the band they love. Some fans say its the best studio CD of their career. We agree that its great and if you've yet to add it to your collection - we can now hook you up!

Last Week:

Blue James BandBlue James Band - Give Me the Love or Give Me the Fight CD - Blue James Band’s third album, Give Me the love or Give Me the Fight, is a testament to the band's passion for imaginative, fun-filled, soul-soothing songs. The album sees the band as vibrant as ever, with their sunny roots/rock n' roll/reggae style fused throughout the album's ten tracks. Inventive musicality and lyrical style underlie Give Me the love or Give Me the Fight, allowing each track to take listeners on their own journey, while providing singularity that impresses like a fingerprint. The album is transcendent, yet accessible. Highlights include the reggae-infused "Not Ready For You" and the worldly "They Come and They Go."
 

Disco BiscuitsThe Disco Biscuits - Bisco Inferno 09/10 DVD - Recorded live at Red Rocks Ampitheatre, Morrison CO on May 30th, 2009 and May 29th, 2010.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Avett BrothersThe Avett Brothers - Carolina Jubilee CD - Reissue of the adored Folk/Roots band's 2003 album. A Carolina Jubilee has been extremely hard to find since the North Carolina trio's ascension to global success. The band is made up of two brothers, Scott Avett and Seth Avett, who play the banjo and guitar respectively, and Bob Crawford who plays the stand-up bass.

 

 

Jason Isbell liveJason Isbell & the 400 Unit - Live from Alabama CD - In August of 2012, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit assembled in their home state of Alabama in front of a couple of sold-out concert halls to record their first live album, Live From Alabama. After years of hard touring, the critically-lauded band has gelled into a versatile rock and roll squad that is equally at ease performing Muscle Shoals soul to hardcore country to balls-out rock. Live From Alabama s tracklist mines some of Isbell s most popular songs and includes a pair of inspired covers in Neil Young s Like a Hurricane and Candi Staton s Heart on a String.

Last Week:

New MastersoundsNew Mastersounds - Out on the Faultline CD - As their live shows continue to charm audiences in USA, Japan and Europe, The New Mastersounds have built on their own impressive musical heritage and produced a soulful, funk-drenched studio album, recorded in downtown San Francisco. The CD was co-produced by Eddie Roberts & Milton Davis, and features guest performances by the Jazz Mafia Horns and Papa Mali, as well as a smattering of tasteful vocal stylings from the band.

 

Booty BandYo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band - Doin' It Hard CD - Deeply rooted in Funk and fully committed to the ongoing evolution of the genre, the Booty Band has a sound that is unique yet has the power and soul to create lasting melodies and seismic rhythms. Doin' It Hard, is a reflection of the band's approach to music, touring, performing, recording, and to life in general. This is Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band -> next generation, redefined for a new decade.
 

 

Booty Band remixedYo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band - Re-Doin' It Hard CD - Re-Doin' It Hard features some of the band's favorite DJ's and musicians including Agent 23 (GFE and Secret Agent 23 Skidoo), DJ leSpam (Spam Allstars), Paper Tiger, and Lee "InstaFunk" Allen (Booty Band and Eymarel) adding their distinctive perspectives to select tracks. The album travels from Hip Hop to Miami Bass, briefly delving into heavy, club-inspired dance. Add in the sultry, soulful vocals of Mary Frances (Booty Band and Eymarel) and Molly Kummerle (Paper Tiger) and you have a well-rounded and highly palatable listening experience.

Blackberry SmokeBlackberry Smoke - Live at Peace Music Festival 2012 CD - You can call Blackberry Smoke's music southern rock and you wouldn't be wrong. Or you could call it country and you wouldn't be wrong, either. But you would be selling both the band and its legion of fans short. With influences that run the gamut from country to bluegrass to metal to gospel and yes, southern rock, Blackberry Smoke is more than the sum of its diverse parts. "None of us have ever said, 'Let's be a southern rock band or a bluegrass band or a country band'," Blackberry Smoke frontman Charlie Starr explains. "We all love the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Stones and the Faces and Hank Williams and Bill Monroe. It's not about what kind of music it is, as long as it's good and it's honest. When we get together it just sounds the way it does."

Southside JohnnySouthside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes - Live at Peach Music Festival 2012 (2 CDs) - Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes first achieved prominence in the mid-1970s, emerging from the same New Jersey Shore music scene as his now legendary contemporary and friend Bruce Springsteen.  Southside’s first three albums, I Don’t Want To Go Home, This Time It’s for Real, and Hearts of Stone, were produced by band co-founder Steven Van Zandt (E Street Band, The Sopranos), and largely featured songs written by Van Zandt and/or Springsteen. The Van Zandt-written “I Don’t Want To Go Home” became Southside’s signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and sentimental lyrics. In 1982 Rolling Stone Magazine voted Hearts of Stone among the top 100 albums of the 1970s and 1980s. With their classic blend of hard-core R&B and street-level rock, molten grooves, soulful guitar licks and blistering horn section, Johnny and his Jukes continue to put their unique stamp on the Jersey Shore sound, while recalling the glory years of Otis Redding and similar Stax Records titans.

BoneramaBonerama - Live at Wanee Festival 2012 CD - In a city that doesn't play by the rules, New Orleans' Bonerama is something different. Bonerama has been repeatedly recognized by Rolling Stone, hailed as "the ultimate in brass balls" (2005) and praised for their "...crushing ensemble riffing, human-feedback shrieks and wah-wah growls" (2007). Bonerama carries the brass-band concept to places unknown; what other brass band could snag an honor for "Best Rock Band" at the 2007 Big Easy Awards?

 

Mickey Hart BandMickey Hart Band - Live at Wanee Festival 2012 (2 CDs) - Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and his band put on an awesome show on Wanee's Mushroom stage. Lineup also featured Dave Schools from Widespread Panic on bass.

 

 

Leftover SalmonLeftover Salmon - Live at Wanee Festival 2012 (2 CDs) - Leftover Salmon who formed in Boulder Colorado in 1989 are the originators of the Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass genre. A style of music that blends bluegrass, rock, country, blues, jazz, and Cajun/Zydeco. This concert was professionally recorded live at the 2012 Wanee Music Festival in Live Oak, FL.

 

Particle - Live at WaneeParticle - Live at Wanee Festival 2012 (2 CDs) - A fantastic late night set from Particle to round out a memorable first day at Wanee 2012.

 

 

 

Trigger Hippy liveTrigger Hippy - Live at Wanee Festival 2012 CD - The only official release from this amazing supergroup featuring Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, singer/songwriter Will Kimbrough, singer Joan Osborne, singer/songwriter Jackie Greene and bassist Nick Govrik..

The Ragbirds - Travellin' Machine CDThe Ragbirds - Travellin' Machine CD - After a highly successful 2011 The Ragbirds are kicking off a new year with the release of their 4th studio effort. In this exciting mew album the band has seamlessly blended a wide palette of musical genres into a fresh and cohesive 10-track package that is full of life and energy. It's rare to stumble upon a band that brings as much joy and creative flare to their music as the Ragbirds. Led by the energetic front woman, Erin Zindle, the band tastefully unites multi-cultural rhythms with a roots rock flavor that is as captivating and flirty, as it is smart. A bright and diverse addition to any music collection, the album provides charming, danceable songs that can be enjoyed by listeners of all ages.

Last Week:

 

Keller Williams - Bass CDKeller Williams - Bass CD - "Bass" is Keller's 17th album and the first on which he only plays bass. Comprised of 11 tracks, 9 originals and 2 covers, "Bass" documents Keller's exploration of creamy bass lines and groovy rocksteady beats mixed with his own unique style and vision.

And now a word from Keller:
Greetings Music Lovers. Thank you for partaking in yet another one of my self-indulgent musical journeys. In my never ending quest to do something different, I present you my first release containing no guitar. Not a single guitar was used in the making of this record. To me, that's different. And that's what I'm going for.

This record has no looping. This is a document of songs and the overall, open air, spacious vibe created by this trio we call Kdubalicious. I am honored to be joined by musical genius Jay Starling on keys, and the one-drop master Mark D on drums. The record was recorded, mixed and co-produced by recording god Jeff Covert at Wally Cleavers in Fredericksburg, Virginia during the summer of 2011.
Free the bass, and your mind will follow. ~ Keller

String Cheese Incident - Rhythm of the Road V.1 - Atlanta 11.17.00 (3 CD)String Cheese Incident - Rhythm of the Road V.1 - Atlanta 11.17.00 (3 CD)-The String Cheese Incident announces their brand new live archival series with Rhythm of the Road: Volume 1, Incident in Atlanta - 11.17.00, the first offering in SCI's new series "Rhythm of the Road" highlights many of the band's most celebrated concerts with re-mastered limited edition releases.

Incident in Atlanta features the entire 11.17.00 performance at The Tabernacle, including special guest Tony Furtado on banjo for several songs, covers of Led Zeppelin, Talking Heads, John Coltrane, Peter Rowan, and Peter Gabriel songs, some bluegrass standards, and a host of SCI originals.


Option 22 - Choose the Music CD Option 22 - Choose the Music CD - Option 22 is a progressive Americana/Worldbeat ensemble with a revolutionary vibe. Fierce and passionate female vocals dance atop a healing groove of instruments from around the world including banjo, guitars, didgeridoo, shamisen, djembes and other hand drums. Positive lyrics convey a message of unity and understanding and soulful melodies elevate listeners' consciousness. Dubbed by one listener a "new age jam band," their flavorful style is flexible, ranging from funky and rhythmic sounds to mellow and melodic, with each member bringing into the equation affinities for worldbeat, funk, folk, jamband music, newgrass, trance, reggae and rock. The music has no boundries, and one must listen to the full scope of it to understand, as each song is different. Their full-out drum jams send energy bouncing off the walls of any venue. Another listener dubbed the sound "hippie hop." The only category that truly seems fitting is "Other." With three albums of original music, their newest release, "Choose The Music," is available now. It features 12 Original Songs spanning styles from newgrass to space-folk to alterna-rock world funk. No matter what you call it, it's good music.

Skatalites - Bashaka CDSkatalites - Bashaka CD - Formed in 1963, the Skatalites were the creme de la creme of Jamaica's musical talent at the time. Their music was a powerful synthesis of American R&B, combined with swinging, jazzy "take off" solos, forming in the process something uniquely Jamaican - the first music to come out of the post-war colonial independence movement of the West Indies. The Skatalites backed every singer of note in the island's studios and cut hundreds of instrumentals under various names, thus laying the foundation for today's Jamaican music. 'Bashaka' is a celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Skatalites formation.The music found here is smooth, swinging and vibrant. Producer Stamma Haughton has a first hand feel for the music of the original Skatalites and the combination of solid tunes, musical craftmanship, digital recording at a big studio makes this an album every ska fan should check out. Bargain priced at $3.99!

7 Walkers CD 7 Walkers - 7 Walkers CD - Currently on sale at 20% off list price!
Famed drummer and Grateful Dead co-founder Bill Kreutzmann and voodoo guitar master Papa Mali come together as 7 Walkers for their self-titled debut release, due out November 2, 2010 on Response Records. Together with legendary New Orleans bass man George Porter Jr. (The Meters, Funky Meters) and multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard (Willie Nelson, Fastball), the highly anticipated release features a batch of brand-new Robert Hunter (Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan lyricist) originals co-written with the band, a guest performance by Willie Nelson on ''King Cotton Blues'', and a few smokin' instrumentals. A self-proclaimed ''open love letter'' to the city of New Orleans, the end result is a fiery and funky collection of tunes that quite brilliantly capture a unique collaboration between two very different musical shamans.


Buckwheat Zydeco's Bayou Boogie CD Buckwheat Zydeco's Bayou Boogie CD - The Grammy-winning worldwide ambassador of Zydeco music is back again with a family dance party collection from the Bayou country of southwest Louisiana that pulls out all the stops... Smokin' accordion, rockin' Hammond B3 organ, rollicking rub-board and tasty guitar licks join together to create a musical gumbo of Creole culture that can almost be smelled and tasted.

Buck, his young friends, and some very familiar guest stars including LAURIE BERKNER, DAN ZANES, AARON NIGEL SMITH and MARIA MULDAUR guide children and parents through a mix of songs including some of the most family-friendly classic rock n' roll tunes - done in a Zydeco style as only Buckwheat can - plus great original songs that entertain and get kids moving while they teach. The result is a rich tribute to this unique melting pot of American culture.

Buck loves his home and culture in the bayous of southwest Louisiana. So what could be better than creating a party to get families movin' and groovin' to the music he loves, and giving them a little lesson in the rich Creole culture that is his roots?

Buckwheat Zydeco teamed up with Music For Little People in 1994 to release the beloved, award-winning children's album, 'Choo Choo Boogaloo.'
