Neil Young Surprises Fans and Sends A Letter Home

"It's better to burn out than to fade away," Neil Young so memorably sang in his "Hey Hey, My, My (Into the Black)," the song that famously provides the counterpart to his "My, My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)" on his Rust Never Sleeps album (1979).

Well, Young himself will neither burn out nor fade away nor rust nor sleep. The man whose insatiable curiosity and whose unceasing love of experimenting with musical styles and with music technology has done it…

John Nemeth - Memphis Grease (Album Review)

You could have just as well called John Nemeth's latest release Soul from Spudsville. No matter what the location, everything the Boise, Idaho native touches turns to soul. This one he calls Memphis Grease because it was recorded there in his new adopted homebase, slathered with boilin' Memphis guitar and punched up with Stax style fatback horns, but the spirit and sound of 50's r&b and soul is the backbone.

His take on Otis Rush's “Three Times A Fool” sounds like…

Dan Amor - Rainhill Trials (Album Review)

Subtle and Sweet folk music from Wales             

Most people reading this review will probably be of an age where they have pretty defined music tastes and don’t have the time or inclination to readily discover anything too radically new. I too am a bit like that; but as a music reviewer I can still discover new genres that can spin my preconceptions 359 degrees. This album by Dan Amor has just done that for me.

I was intrigued by the opening song,…

The War on Drugs: From Dylan to Dire Straits, By Way of Attrition

Whether on the basketball court or onstage, when two supreme talents join forces, it tends to make things better. Michael Jordan needed Scottie Pippen, LeBron James needs Dwyane Wade, McCartney clearly needed Lennon, and Salt would be a run-of-the mill condiment without Pepa.

But there are exceptions to such…
