News: @glove & Special Sauce – New Single/Album and A Blast From The Past

21 Jan

I’m pretty sure this means more to me but I figured why not share it with everyone. G. Love has announced that on the heels of G. Love & Special Sauce’s 20th Anniversary and in addition to a new album, Sugar, which drops April 22, Jimi Jazz is returning to the group for the first time in eight years and will be on tour this spring! Pumped about this one and if you’re a G. Love fan, you know there is nothing quite like G. Love, the Houseman and Jimi Jazz all on stage together.

Also, give a listen to the first single off the upcoming album, “Nothing Quite Like Home.” Want more? Ben Harper contributes to the track!! Now gimme some Sugar!

Playlist: May Music

5 May

The inspiration for this month’s playlist has to do 100% with the idea of hopping in the car, cranking up the volume and listening to these tracks with the windows down and wind blowing in your face.  There is some new music scattered in throughout the playlist and chances are good I’ve mentioned all the artists on the blog in some regard.

Hope you like May Music!

Cheers!

New Music: Ben Harper – “Rock and Roll is Free”

28 Mar

I’m a huge Ben Harper fan but I’m not sure how I really feel about “Rock and Roll Is Free” the first single off his forthcoming album, Give Til It’s Gone out May 17. In a return to straight up rock and roll and his first solo disc since 2005 I’m definitely looking forward to listening to the album but I think his oldies are still the goodies in this case.
