Dave Matthews Band – Come Tomorrow

Posted by Greg on Jun 22, 2018 in Music

Come-tomorrow-cover-art

For their first album in six years, summer concert kings Dave Matthews Band took a much different approach. Instead of utilizing just one producer, the band worked with four (Mark Batson, John Alagia, Rob Cavallo and Rob Evans) and some of the recordings date back more than a decade. Of the 14 songs on the album, half have made appearances in a live setting. Given these traits, Come Tomorrow (June 16, RCA) is actually pretty darn cohesive. The album has received praise from the likes of Vulture, Rolling Stone and the New York Times and for good reason. From start to finish, this is an exquisitely produced and deeply satisfying album.

Rachael Sage’s Myopia Just Might Be Her Best

Posted by Greg on Jun 19, 2018 in Music

For her fourteenth album Myopia, NYC-based singer-songwriter Rachael Sage deviated from her signature piano and wrote most of the album on guitar. That small change might have actually been the best decision Sage has made in quite some time. From start to finish, Myopia is a crisply produced, affecting and rewarding listen that lingers long after the final second. Whether its the organ-drenched opener “Alive” or the doe-eyed, coffeehouse-vibe on “Spark” the album opens with a veneer of both hope and confidence. Read more…

To be completely transparent, this is not a blog that tends to gravitate towards punk music, it is also not a blog that tends to veer towards LGBTQ issues as well, but it is Pride Month and this blog is based out of Orlando (home to the now-famous Pulse nightclub) so it would be a disservice to not shed light on an LGBTQ band. Enter Louisville, KY duo GRLwood. Read more…

Maroon 5 – Amalie Arena, Tampa, FL – 6/16/18

Posted by Greg on Jun 19, 2018 in Music

Performing in front of a sold-out crowd at Tampa’s Amalie Arena, perennial chart-toppers and ubiquitious radio darlings Maroon 5 orchestrated a serviceable, albeit entertaining set this past Saturday. Featuring a handful of songs from last year’s Red Pill Blues (of which the current tour bears its name) and the band’s four biggest hits from breakthrough Songs About Jane, the band carved its way through a workmanlike 90-minute set.

Digital Only Label Makes Big Splash With Debut

Posted by Greg on Jun 15, 2018 in Music

unnamed
Earlier this week, provocative blog Noisey wrote an editorial claiming that rock was dead. While we’re not going to be that hyperbolic, the influx of EDM and hip-hop have drastically changed the musical landscape. The paradigm has changed and singles and mixtapes are the new normal. Armed with that sea change, there’s the ever-increasing stranglehold of digital music. Read more…
