Tedeschi Trucks Band's "Revelator" CD, just released this past week, is OUTSTANDING. Check it out.

I picked that one up and its pretty good. However, I have a crush on Ms. tedeschi, so I'm biased !

I also picked up the new album by Warren Haynes, 'Man in Motion', that one is not too bad either.

Agreed......I like Warren's CD too. Made me regret not catching him at the Tower Theater in Philly a couple of months ago.....

Dave Gilmour is top value, good song too, was lucky enough to see him at The Royal Festival Hall in london doing Pink Meltdown, mainly acoustic but had Richard Wright on keys, Sam Brown doing main backing and Bob Geldof came on for a guset spot too, top show !!!

But a great listen is a band calle Elbow, a superb album from them is "Seldom seen kid", so worth a listen

Ok, it has been awhile since I have posted here, but I am really excited about a bunch of music that has come out this year, so I figured I would share what I view to be some of the highlights.

Right then, starting with some very guitar-centric stuff, it's The Aristocrats with a self-titled debut. Some of you may be familiar with Mr. Guthrie Govan, but those of you who aren't need to click on this immediately:
[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atVhrTzp7hE[/video]

Second up, moving away from the world of fusion and into some metal here is Mastodon's Curl of the Burl from their album The Hunter, which is really raw, gritty, and groovy metal.
[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAihDAJX8Ow&ob=av3e[/video]

Third, a bit less guitar centric but is my favorite of the year, Steven Wilson's Grace for Drowning record. I am going to see him live at the Shepherd's Bush next week, and the concert will be in surround sound with an elaborate video projection with some videos made by this director:
[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UoKIiw ... ideo_title[/video]

If the Mastodon was too much for you, you may want to skip this next one, but I find it humorous, creative, intriguing, and it gets stuck in my head; it's Juular by Devin Townsend. That master of the bizarre has cooked up something special on Deconstruction.
[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-DKs0qfdEk&ob=av3e[/video]

Finally, since I am a loyal fanboy, Dream Theater has a fantastic new record with a fantastic new drummer. Since Mike Mangini (Steve Vai, Extreme, Professor at Berklee) joined the band, their music is back and sounds really fresh.

And because Mike Mangini is such a beast, I must include a couple videos of him just being awesome.

Loudon Wainwright III has been a favorite of mine for many years. I've appreciated his intelligent yet humorous lyrical content, accompanied by simple yet very well done acoustic guitar, as well as his wonderful vocals.

His latest CD, entitled "Older Than My Old Man Now" is perhaps his best effort in a career with many fine albums. The songs do a GREAT job of dealing with many of the "issues" related to being a 60+ year old...... everything from medical issues, the plethra of drugs we are inundated with that claim to make us young in some elaboration or another, sex (or the lack thereoff), death, family, kids..........

Loudon's lyrics are at once funny as hell, yet poignant, touching, loving, and sarcastic. Some of the best songs he's ever written are on this CD.

He may be known for "Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road", but this CD leaves the Dead Skunk in the dust.........

One of the wittiest albums I've heard in a long, long time.

I've only seen him once, must have been sometime like 1979 or sometime. He was opening for Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, so that gives you an idea of how long ago it was. :D

I'd never heard of him before and he was really good. He used to pull a lot of faces, too. Always wondered if he wasn't more of a live performer than someone you'd listen to on records.

Loudon is fantastic live. His sense of humor is wicked!! Way back in the early '70's he had this huge beard that made him look like a lion with a big mane, and he had these faces where he's lick his lower lip, and dance around while playing and singing. It made for quite an engaging show, to say the least!! He has a voice from the heavens!!

Ok guys. I got the new Maragold Album. Well, if you are into decent production and listening to great chops, then its great! Mehgan can sing her ass off, and Kevin on bass and Greg on guitar, chops. But if you are looking for the hook, its kinda elusive. "Evergreen Is Golder" has the biggest hook, and another tune "Paradigm Tsunami" has a good groove and some really cool parts, but to me I can't sing anything when not listening to it.

An example of my meaning would be Yes. They are all fabulous musicians, and I can go around singing "All good People" Roundabout" ect.

Not sure if it will hit big, or be Huge in shredder fields.

But I predict if anything, Mehgan Krauss will be a name in everybody's vocabulary.
