Rock & Roots Artist: Ben Folds - 'So There'

Oct 5, 2015

Review: Ben Folds, 'So There'

Gary Clark Jr.: 'Music Is Medicine To Me'

Gary Clark Jr., the blues-guitar wunderkind from Austin, Texas, who grew up into a solo star, titled his latest LP The Story of Sonny Boy Slim in a nod to his own nickname and whirlwind ascent. But there's a song on the album whose name might better represent its overall tone: "The Healing."

Performing together as The Wood Brothers, Chris and Oliver Wood have long been mainstays on the Americana circuit, with their breakout 2006 album Ways Not To Lose gave way to several beloved releases. Now, the band has announced Paradise, a forthcoming full-length recorded at Dan Auerbach’s East Eye Sound Studios. Notably more of a rock-tinged effort than most of their previous work, the band maintains the strong connection with one another and their listeners that has won such acclaim over the last decade.

Rock & Roots Artists - Los Lobos - 'Gates Of Gold'

Sep 11, 2015

Gates of Gold, the band’s first new studio album in five years, is an American saga in the rich literary tradition of Steinbeck and Faulkner.

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984.


33 Van Morrison album titles will be made available as digital releases and through all streaming services beginning Friday, August 28, the same day Legacy Recordings will release theEssential Van Morrison, a 37-track career-spanning anthology, available digitally and as a 2CD physical album.  Continue reading for the full list of albums and the press release.
