They can’t all be zingers, as the lovely and talented Mr Les Claypool would say, but supergroups have a better chance than most, as they bring together not only the musical stylings of established successful artists, but also elements of their respective fan bases. Tomahawk is made up of members of the Jesus Lizard, FaithContinue reading “#530 – self-titled by Tomahawk”

#529 – Bad Behavior by BRONCHO
Not only did I return to concert-going Sunday night with one of my favorite bands of all time, but in the process I met some very cool and like-minded people. One of them recommended this artist to me and I really enjoyed their album. Live music creates a truly magical atmosphere that brings people togetherContinue reading “#529 – Bad Behavior by BRONCHO”
#528 – IV by Black Mountain
I saw these guys last night in my return to Los Angeles concert-going in the age of Covid. They opened up for Primus, one of my favorite bands, who I will always go see at any opportunity, and who always has great opening acts. So it came as no surprise that Black Mountain was rightContinue reading “#528 – IV by Black Mountain”
#527 – Psychology by Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
I’ve been hearing about these guys for years. They’ve long been an up-and-coming member of the jam band community and have started playing bigger shows over the past couple of years. They also have very entertaining and cartoony album art, which will always get my attention.
#526 – Straw In The Wind by The Steel Woods
I’m always in the market for an interesting country artist. It’s probably the genre that I know the least about and have a very small cross section of artists that I listen to on even a semi-regular basis, so it’s always nice to add to that list.
#525 – Destiny by Brushy One String
This artist popped up on some website and I was instantly intrigued by his one-string guitar method. I assumed it was just a gimmick, and still kinda think that is the case, but he does get some great sounds out of that one string. Add to that his great voice and this is an artistContinue reading “#525 – Destiny by Brushy One String”
#524 – Unlearning by Teddy Swims
Every so often, we get a reminder about why you can’t judge a book by its cover, and today’s artist is a perfect example of that. When you see someone with a collection of face tattoos, it’s hard not to form opinions about them, however this gentleman’s music is so different from what his appearanceContinue reading “#524 – Unlearning by Teddy Swims”
#523 – Welcome to the Hill by Yussef Dayes Trio
This is a great live recording by some very talented improvisational jazz musicians. You say you don’t like jammy jazz music? I say you’re missing out. But then, that’s how I feel anytime someone tells me they don’t care for any genre in particular. These kinds of recordings, though, really epitomize the living, breathing natureContinue reading “#523 – Welcome to the Hill by Yussef Dayes Trio”
#522 – Northern Songs by The Asteroid No. 4
It should surprise no one who follows this blog that I am quite fond of the modern psychedelic genre that seems to be having a moment right now. There are no shortage of amazing bands that fall into that category and I’m all too happy to explore as many of them as I can.
#521 – self-titled by Rush
Next weekend marks the long-awaited (by me, at least) return of Primus to the LA area. One of my favorite live acts of all time, this repeatedly rescheduled your feature a performance of Rush’s amazing A Farewell to Kings album, a tribute to the late, great Neil Peart. Having never seen Rush live is probablyContinue reading “#521 – self-titled by Rush”
