This Week’s New River Music

Title: Walk Away
Artist: Xavier Rudd

Xavier is from Australia and has dual citizenship in Canada. He is an environmentalist and big proponent of the rights of indigenous Australians. He has toured with Jack Johnson and G Love and Special Sauce.  This single is from his new album, Storm Boy, due out May 25th.

Title: broken
Artist: lovelytheband
Album: everything i could never say
Released: September 5, 2017
This single is from fall 2017’s album, everything i could never say. The L.A. trio says they draw influences from MGMT, The Pixies and Grouplove. Vocalist Mitchy Collins says, “This song [Broken] is about finding someone who is just as f—ed up and lost as you are, but somehow you make it work together. Everyone is a little bit broken inside, nobody’s perfect. This song is an ode to the broken ones.”

Title: To Live and Die in New England
Artist: Terence Ryan
Album: Don’t Panic
Released: June 2, 2017
Terence has been featured on our Homegrown Showcase, and he came into the River Music Hall a few weeks ago to perform for a lucky group of listeners. From Pembroke, MA, he moved to LA a few years ago and ended up living in his car. He says, “I always go back to the metaphor of the book, The Alchemist. He [the main character] leaves home to find his treasure. He goes through the entire journey, and when he’s on his last leg, at rock bottom, he finds out that his treasure was back home all along”. This song is included on his debut album, Don’t Panic, released last year.

Title: Lookin’ Up
Artist: Barenaked Ladies
Album: Fake Nudes
Released: November 6, 2017
Lookin’ Up is from the band’s 2017 album, Fake Nudes. Ed Robertson on the song: “Lookin’ Up is just about optimism. I think it’s a very important time for optimism. We live in a world that tends to emphasize the negative. I think it’s kind of a false narrative — we certainly have problems that we all need to address, but the narrative that we’re in constant danger, that doom is imminent, is not real. It’s gripping and it gets your attention, but it’s not a realistic narrative. I think it’s important to try and have a broader perspetive”. You can catch these guys at the Bank of NH Pavilion on June 30th, or the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion on July 1st!
