Brandi Carlilie 400

NPR Premieres “The Eye” from Brandi Carlile’s ATO Debut “The Firewatcher’s Daughter” Out 3/3

NPR Music has premiered “The Eye”, a new track off of Brandi Carlile‘s upcoming album The Firewatcher’s Daughter, out March 3rd. The album is Carlile’s first on ATO, and first on an indie label – you can preorder it now at iTunes, Amazon, or from the Official Store.

Watch the video for “The Eye” below, and read her interview with NPR’s Ann Powers, who calls the album “a glorious storm”.

‘The Firewatcher’s Daughter’ was recorded almost entirely as first takes without any demoing and little rehearsal before gathering at Bear Creek Studio in Washington State.

The result is immediate and electrifying. “The Eye,” a song influenced by Crosby, Stills and Nash, is so intimate and hushed you can hear the quiver of Brandi’s voice in a flawless 3-part harmony.  Lead-off track and first single “Wherever Is Your Heart” captures a fiery intensity.

The creative spirit of the album is also exemplified in Brandi’s sold-out Pin Drop Tour, which wowed audiences this fall.  Playing historic rooms, Brandi and The Twins performed songs new and old without any amplification – no mics, no amps, no PA – relying only on their voices, acoustic instruments and the venues themselves.  The Chicago Tribune attributed Carlile to proving “that sometimes music has more to say than speakers can communicate.”

‘The Firewatcher’s Daughter’ follows 2012′s ‘Bear Creek,’ which debuted in the Billboard Top 10, was hailed as “gorgeous” by Rolling Stone and “tremendously assured” by NPR.  Brandi has sold out venues like Red Rocks, back to back nights at The Beacon Theater and performed at Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and more.

Track listing:

1. Wherever Is Your Heart

2. The Eye

3. The Things I Regret

4. Mainstream Kid

5. Beginning To Feel The Years

6. Wilder (We’re Chained)

7. Blood Muscle Skin & Bone

8. I Belong To You

9. Alibi

10. The Stranger At My Door

11. Heroes And Songs

12. Murder In The City

HURRAY TOUR 400 400

NPR premieres Hurray for the Riff Raff’s new video for “The Body Electric”, New Tour Dates

The powerful new video for Hurray for the Riff Raff‘s “The Body Electric” premiered yesterday at NPR, where Ann Powers called it “the political folk song of the year”.

This video is a meditation on the acceptance of violence and discrimination against people of color, women and the LGBT community,” explained producer Joshua Shoemaker. “We took these frustrations and paired them with classic imagery that would be recognized by most, allowing us to set a tone for the narrative. Replacing the Botticelli’s Venus with a Katey Red, the transgender mother of “sissy bounce,” is something that speaks clearly without having to be salacious or heavy-handed.”

Watch the video, and check below for new tour dates (tickets go on sale today).

Hurray for the Riff Raff was also included on several Best of 2014 lists, among them NPR and Rolling Stone Country. “The Body Electric” took the number-one spot on American Songwriter’s list of best songs.

Get the new album III from Official Store | iTunes | Amazon | Local Record Store

An interview and performance by Mariachi El Bronx recorded at LA’s Sonos Studio aired this morning on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic. Watch the live performance of “Wildfires” below, and watch the entire hour-long performance and interview in HD here.

The new album III from Mariachi El Bronx, the alter ego of acclaimed Los Angeles punk outfit The Bronx, is now available for download, on CD, or on day-glo orange vinyl (check out a video of the vinyl pressing process below)! Not content to simply excel within the confines of the mariachi genre, they ditched the rulebook and dusted off old sequencers, synths, and an ARP. The ten striking songs that resulted fuse traditional melodies with modern ambience.

The band will be heading out on tour in Europe in December, supporting ATO labelmates Gogol Bordello. Check out tour dates and pick up tickets here!

Drive By Truckers “English Oceans Deluxe Edition” With Concert Film Out Today

DBT To Record New Live Album at San Francisco’s The Fillmore On Nov. 20, 21 + 22

“A true comeback. The south will never spawn a better songwriting band.” – ROBERT CHRISTGAU, NPR

—–

Returning fully refreshed and firing on all cylinders, 2014 has been one hell of a year for the Drive-By Truckers rock show.

 Although they wrote independently, the band’s co-founders Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood penned songs that dovetailed brilliantly with each other on English Oceans, the band’s 12th record that was released in March. And now, we are thrilled to release English Oceans Deluxe Edition and the band’s new concert film, Black IceVérité, both out today.

Alongside full album, the deluxe English Oceans CD will contain eight live bonus tracks and the Black Ice Vérité DVD, while the single LP version contains the tracks on bright white vinyl and the DVD. Bonus live versions will include “Dead Drunk and Naked” from the band’s seminal Southern Rock Opera, as well as English Oceans’ saucy “Shit Shots Count” and contemplative closer “Grand Canyon”.

But just because we are approaching the year’s end doesn’t mean this band is slowing down — they will be recording a new live album across three performances at The Fillmore on November 20th, 21st and 22nd, with Sturgill Simpson to open.  And throughout December, both Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley will embark on solo tour dates, which you can check out below.

A collective of musicians, including My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith, has banded together under the direction of T-Bone Burnett as The New Basement Tapes to write and record music for recently unearthed Bob Dylan lyrics from the mid-1960s. This legendary collaboration marks Jim James’ first project since his 2013 solo album Regions of Light and Sound of God. Dawes’ album Nothing Is Wrong was released on ATO Records in 2011. 

The process of writing and recording the resulting album is the subject of a new Showtime documentary, “Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued”. With Dylan’s blessing, The New Basement Tapes – a “supergroup” composed of James and Goldsmith in addition to Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, and Marcus Mumford – created compositions for lyrics unseen and unheard until now. Says Burnett, “What transpired during those two weeks was amazing for all of us. There was a deep well of generosity and support in the studio at all times, which reflected the tremendous trust and generosity shown by Bob in sharing these lyrics with us in the first place.”

Watch the trailer for the Showtime documentary below, and check out the song “Down On The Bottom” featuring vocals by Jim James.
