Description:

Originally formed in 1997, Swedish retro rockers Siena Root confusingly take their name from Tuscany’s “warm, earthy colors” — a mysterious explanation to say the least, since the quartet’s ’70s derived melding of progressive, psychedelic and hard rock would appear to have little to do with Italy (but hey, whatever works for them!). Featuring lead singer/organist Oskar Lundstrm, guitarist/vocalist KG West, bassist/vocalist Sam Riffer and drummer Love H. Forsberg, Siena Root gradually honed their craft through years of club gigs and writing sessions, finally culminating in a deal with Rage of Achilles Records and the release of their 2004 debut album A New Day Dawning. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

Description:

2017 release, the first album from the U.S. band in five years. Dispatch, which is based in the Boston area, was originally active from 1996 until 2002. The members then announced a hiatus, which would ultimately last for almost a decade. The hiatus ended in the beginning of 2011, when the band announced a national tour. In May of the same year, Dispatch released an EP containing six new songs, their first all-new release since 2000. The band released both their first studio album in over a decade, Circles Around the Sun, and an iTunes session in 2012 and toured North America that summer in support of the album. Heralded as one of the biggest independent rock bands in history, one of Dispatch’s most memorable performances included a show in Boston that drew 110,000 people, and was dubbed the largest independent music event in history. Three years later, the band performed three consecutive shows at Madison Square Garden in ties to their philanthropic work in Zimbabwe, becoming the first independent band to sell out the historic venue. In 2011, the band officially reunited to release new material and have since embarked on multiple sold out arena tours across the globe. Dispatch is set to release their most ambitious musical effort to date this summer.

Description:

Formed in 1970, Emerson, Lake & Palmer were torchbearers of the progressive rock sound and one of rock’s first super-groups. The world-conquering, stadium-filling prog giants helped to broaden the audience for the genre from hundreds of thousands into tens of millions and were one the most commercially successful rock bands of the 1970s. Their first 7 album releases all made the U.K. albums chart top 10 and U.S. top 20. ‘Love Beach’ (1978) is the final ELP studio album from the 1970s classic era, expertly remastered for the first time in 24 bit / High Density formats from the original tapes. The LP finds the band back to their intimate best – producing a lighter, more concise and accessible album, with the band jamming in the relaxed atmosphere of a studio in Nassau, Bahamas. As usual, ELP produced an excellent, technically accomplished mix of classical music and electronics, once again unearthing their extraordinary musical chemistry. Includes fans’ / live favourites ‘The Gambler’ and the rockin’ ‘Canario’ (based on Rodrigo’s ‘Fantasia Para Un Gentilhombre’). Side 2 is taken up by the superb ‘Memoirs Of An Officer And A Gentleman’ – one of their finest suites, highlighting voice, piano, and marching drums…

Description:

After the rather dull Works, Vol. 1, the highly underrated Works, Vol. 2 is a godsend. Works, Vol. 1 took their pompous, bombastic, keyboard-driven prog rock epics to the limit; had it been stripped of its excesses and coupled with the strongest cuts from Works, Vol. 2, the band may have had an enormous success with critics and fans alike. Volume 2’s brief, eclectic compositions cover an array of musical styles, combining stimulating originals and handsomely orchestrated renditions of “Maple Leaf Rag,” “Honky Tonk Train Blues,” and “Show Me the Way to Go Home.” Lake peppers the tunes with guitar and bass flourishes, resulting in some of his most challenging instrumental work, and both he and Palmer deliver incredibly strong performances. Meanwhile,Peter Sinfield contributes some of his most mature and accomplished lyrics. Emerson’s work is solid and creative, but sounds a bit dated, which is part of why the band couldn’t endure. Unlike some ELP albums, Volume 2’s brief pieces sustain interest; there really isn’t a weak tune in the set. The five instrumentals are highlighted by two short prog rock tunes, including the jazzy “Bullfrog,” which features Lake’s brief jazz bass solo and Palmer’s fluid, versatile drumming. “Barrelhouse Shake-down” and “Maple Leaf Rag” showcase Emerson’s superb ragtime and barrelhouse piano playing, and Palmer’s jazz fusion/marching band piece, “Close But Not Touching,” features horns and Lake’s psychedelic electric guitar lines. The vocal pieces are equally interesting. “Brain Salad Surgery” is progressive jazz-rock that bears some resemblance to King Crimson’s “Cat Food,” unsurprising since each features Lake singing Sinfield’s lyrics. And, of course, there is the hit “I Believe in Father Christmas,” a beautiful Lake/Sinfield composition that highlights Lake’s strong voice and vibrant acoustic guitar.

Description:

Like Palma Violets, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Circa Waves and many others before them, this hotly tipped four-piece from Berkshire infuse the best bits of mid-noughties guitar music with a woah-and-ooh-heavy pop sensibility. Their debut album kicks off with Stay With Me, with its earworm riff and singalong chorus built around the three words of the title, complete with those obligatory whoops. Similarly, Junk Food Forever — their latest single — is a Radio 1-friendly voyage into loneliness via some fairly unchallenging lyricism (“Junk food forever / Late nights together / Jackets in leather / I can’t forget ya”). Things are more amped up elsewhere, with Black Magic and Burn My Eyes taking a darker, more Royal Blood-ish turn despite similarly catchy refrains. The latter in particular proves a highlight, with the focus switched from anthemic guitars to a spaced-out synth line and swirling vocal. Sadly there’s not quite enough of that energy, with piano ballad Palace particularly lacking in vigour. The Amazons have a playful rockiness that could see them rise above the surfeit of indie revivalists, but right now they’re still a little too close to landfill.

Description:

During a rare break from touring, Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, Simon Kirke and Boz Burrell got together in France to record new songs using the Rolling Stones mobile recording studio. Those sessions produced Run With The Pack, a 10-song album that came out in early 1976 and rose to #4 in England and #5 in America, where it sold three million copies alone. Radio stations embraced the title track along with a cover of The Coasters Young Blood, while Silver, Blue & Gold became one of the band s signature tracks, even though it was never officially released as a single.

The bonus disc that accompanies RUN WITH THE PACK: DELUXE EDITION includes unreleased early mixes for Honey Child and Simple Man, as well as an extended version of the title track. There s also the previously unreleased Let There Be Love, an outtake from the recording sessions. In fact, the acoustic version of Do Right By Your Woman, previously only available as the B-Side of the single release of Run With The Pack, is the only song on the bonus disc that has ever been previously released.
