New Music: O.A.R. – “Taking On The World Today”

7 Jul

Less than a month until O.A.R. releases King and August 2 can’t come soon enough.  Here’s another track off the upcoming album, “Taking On The World Today” which has now become my latest music obsession.  I also listened to the live version the band played at the Dave Matthews Band Caravan a couple weeks ago in Atlantic City and yeah, WINNER!


Dave Matthews Band Caravan: Atlantic City June 24-26 Line-up

9 Mar

So the June 24-26 Dave Matthews Band Caravan line-up for Bader Field in Atlantic City was just released and all I can say is, SICK as in what a group of artists as I start day dreaming about how great these three days will be. Tickets go on sale for Warehouse members March 14 and to the public on March 25. Check out the below for all the artists. I don’t know who to be most excited about, such an amazing group of musicians.  What I do know is From Good Homes will be playing at the festival, love seeing the Jersey rockers on the bill as they just reunited in recent years after a decade hiatus.

New Music: The Gaslight Anthem – American Slang

27 Aug

I know the album came out at the beginning of summer but The Gaslight Anthem’s American Slang is one that any fan of rock and roll should have.  The Jersey rockers come out blazing on their third LP and definitely bring a more solid, crisp production throughout.  The title track gets the blood flowing followed by “Stay Lucky” and “Bring It On” which are two songs that grab a hold of you.  “The Diamond Church Street Choir” brings soul to the album while “The Spirit of Jazz” has anthem written all over it.  

Best known for their hit “The ‘59 Sound” the guys must have had added motivation in recording this record having already had the opportunity to perform with their idol Bruce Springsteen in the summer of 2009.  With The Boss in their corner, I only wonder what lies ahead for The Gaslight Anthem.
