2 For 2uesday

My Morning Jacket has remixed and remastered 2003’s classic “It Still Moves” coming out May 27.  Here is their set closing song “One Big Holiday” remixed and remastered for your enjoyment. I will always have a soft spot for The Posies.  Their album “Dear 23” was probably my most played record back in 1990.  The boys, […]

My trifecta would be: 1) Josh Groban  “Stages” Just in time for Mother’s Day.  You’re mom’s favorite singer sings your grandmother’s […]

New Music Tuesday

The Hold Steady are back which means more songs about late nights, drinking, broken hearts, looking for some action in the big city, keeping positive, finding love and dynamic guitar solos.  It’s all in the first single, “Spinners”.

Innovators/Imitators

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame came out with its list of nominees: If it were up to me (which sadly, it is not) I would give it to the innovators not the imitators (thanks to My Morning Jacket’s “Wordless Chorus” for always keeping that lyric in my mind).  Here is the list and […]

Muppet Music

There’s only one record to worth your attention this week.   OK  Go does the theme song and the video debuts today.  The Fray does “Mahna, Mahna”, My Morning Jacket, Weezer and Andrew Bird also put their fingerprints on other Muppet classics. I anticipate awesomness.  The movie comes out in November and  I’m hoping the movie is […]
