Dig ‘Em?

JEFF The Brotherhood, a band of brothers from Tennessee, have recently released a new EP of covers entitled Dig the Classics. Now, covers are an art form in and of themselves. It is hard to take a song and change it enough so that it is a reflection of the original tune while still doing something different: Counting Crows were able to do this with their cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi,” and so did The Dixie Chicks’ cover of Stevie Nicks’ “Landslide.” Read more…

Train is an American rock band from San Francisco, California. The band currently consist of Pat Monahan (vocals), Jimmy Stafford (lead guitar), Jerry Becker (rhythm guitar and piano), Hector Maldonado (bass), and Drew Shoals (drums). Train achieved mainstream success when they released their debut self titled album in 1998. The debut consisted of their single “Meet Virginia.”

Train’s follow up album, Drops of Jupiter, was released in 2001 and contained the lead single “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me).” The single won two Grammy Awards in 2002, and the album was later certified double platinum in the United States and Canada. The album remains the band’s best-selling album to date. In late 2009, Train released their album, Save Me, San Francisco, which spawned three singles including “Hey, Soul Sister,” “If It’s Love” and “Marry Me.” The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified “Hey, Soul Sister” six times platinum. The album itself was certified gold by the RIAA and the Australian Recording Industry Association.

Train’s most recent albums, Bulletproof Picasso, is their seventh studio album. The album was released on Columbia Records in September of this year. “Angel in Blue Jeans” was the first track to be released from the album, and was followed by “Cadillac Cadillac.” See them perform the songs live on their latest national tour!

We Care Because He Does

Much has been made this year of the strength of music released 20 years ago. In 1994 we saw many legendary “alternative” albums released, yet hidden from nostalgia for the likes of Dookie and Superunknown is acknowledgment of just how important the year was for beats. These were the first days of Nas and Biggie, of Portishead and Outkast. Beck announced his presence with three albums, anchored by the slacker grooves of Mellow Gold and “Loser.” Nine Inch Nails and Trent Reznor rose from the depths with The Downward Spiral, Natural Born Killers, and a memorably muddy set at Woodstock’s 25th anniversary. But 1994’s real winner may have been English electronica madman Richard D. James: He produced two EPs under lesser aliases, made the recently unshelved Caustic Window LP, put together a compilation of early singles and, most importantly, released the groundbreaking Selected Ambient Works Volume II as Aphex Twin.
