Rock & Roots Artist - Lianne La Havas, 'Blood'

Aug 3, 2015

Review: Lianne La Havas, 'Blood' - NPR's Tom Moon

Among the delights of Lianne La Havas' 2012 debut Is Your Love Big Enough? was its sense of scale. Here was a songwriter of considerable lyric skill and pop ambition who didn't always follow the prevailing verse/chorus/hook code — particularly the expectation that fireworks need to arrive within the first 90 seconds, and repeat on cue 60-90 seconds later.

Rock & Roots Artist - Wilco: 'Star Wars'

Jul 26, 2015

Wilco surprised fans late last week by posting a brand new album online for free download. The band's grimiest work to date, Star Wars spreads fuzzed-out experimentation and quirky glam over 11 tracks. "Magnetized" brings the record to a mellow finish, echoing the tuneful bounce and stately songwriting of late-era Beatles recordings.

The Catskill Mountains hid rock n rolls best kept secret for almost 18 years. Then in 2008, singer and songwriter Arleigh Kincheloe said goodbye to her hometown hideaway and moved to New York City to start Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds. In the years since, the group has performed more than 600 shows, released two full-length albums and an EP produced by Randy Jackson (American Idol), and enchanted tastemakers ranging from The Wall Street Journal and LA Times to Glamour, USA Today, and The New Yorker. They have shared the stage with such heavyweights as Gov t Mule, Dr. Review by Thom Jurek

Rock & Roots Artist: Amy Helms 'Didn't It Rain'

Jun 28, 2015

Listen To "Rescue Me" here on SOUNDCLOUD...

Songs We Love: Amy Helm, 'Rescue Me': Elena See...

Is Amy Helm's new song, "Rescue Me," about what it means to be in love? Maybe. Is it a song that acknowledges that we need to hang on to the people who are most important to us? Most assuredly. It's also a song that lets Helm's glorious, soulful voice soar over a gentle piano and thrumming electric bass.
