This Week’s New River Music: Week of 7/28/14

The Head And The Heart – “Lets Be Still” This is the title track from their album they released late in 2013. They’re touring summer/fall, but unfortunately don’t have any New England dates. The Seattle band came together in 2009, and most all who’ve seen them live become hooked instantly. YOUTUBE LINK

Ryan Adams- “Gimme Something Good” Ryan has a new self-titled album (his photo on which indicates a thorough shampoo and deep conditioning is in order). He releases that on 9/9. This song features Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ keyboardist, Benmont Tench. YOUTUBE LINK

Knox Hamilton- “Work It Out” The band, not an individual, is from Little Rock. They found a yearbook from the 70s in a thrift store and searched for the coolest-looking guy in it and took his name: Knox Hamilton. The members’ nicknames alone make me want to meet them:

  • Boots Copeland – The Boots
  • Brad Pierce – The Professor
  • Cobo Copeland – The Talent
  • Drew Buffington – The Hair

They also quote John Coltrane on their FB page. What’s not to love? YOUTUBE LINK

Melissa Etheridge- “Take My Number” The new album, “This Is Me”, drops on 9/30.
She performs live next Wednesday Aug, 6 in The Foundation Room with interviewer-extraordinaire, Dana Marshall! YOUTUBE LINK

George Ezra- “Budapest” George, having no relation to Better Than, is a captivating, British 21 year old. He’s opened for Tom Odell and is now very much the It Boy in the UK, selling out solo tours there. He points to Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie as inspirations and adds that he is “massively” influenced by blues greats Howlin’ Wolf and Robert Johnson. The album is “Wanted On Voyage”. YOUTUBE LINK

Black Keys -”Gotta get Away” The Ohio boys have a new single from their spring album, “Turn Blue”. Their band name comes from an expression used by their friend, schizophrenic artist Alfred McMoore. “He would call people he doesn’t like D Flats and Black Keys”. YOUTUBE LINK
