Watch SIMO’s Powerfully Bluesy Video For ‘Two Timing Woman’ [Premiere]

first_imgNashville guitarist JD Simo has been making waves with his group SIMO, bringing a powerful edge to the blues-rock genre. The group’s recent release Let Love Show The Way found them recording at the Big House in Macon, GA, home of the Allman Brothers Band during the 60s and 70s. With Simo even playing Duane Allman’s gold-top Les Paul on the album, there’s an undeniable magic that stems from SIMO’s new release.Simo has been playing guitar for his whole life, learning at the ripe young age of 5 and never looking back. Backed by his longtime drummer Adam Abrashoff and bassist Elad Shapiro, SIMO is a cohesive unit, bringing out tight-knit music that is guaranteed to stir your soul. Their organic vibe on Let Love Show The Way pours through on every track, and we’re proud to premiere some content from the newest release.Thanks to the band, you can watch the new video for “Two Timing Woman” from the Let Love Show The Way album, exclusively on L4LM:When asked about the song, Simo said, “‘Two Timing Woman’ was the last song we wrote before we left to record in Macon at The Big House. Elad [Shapiro, bassist] had most of it together the day before we left and we quickly finished it in a matter of 15 minutes or so. It has quickly become a staple of the live shows and a fan favorite from the new record. It was obvious early on that it’d be well suited to have fun with it and shoot a video that shares the sentiment of the song in a playful way but still captures the lyrical content. Thanks to everyone for requesting it at shows! Hope you enjoy the video!”We certainly enjoy the video, that’s for sure.

Trent Reznor Working On New Nine Inch Nails Music With Frequent Collaborator Atticus Ross

first_imgTrent Reznor and Atticus Ross have kept very busy over the last few years. In addition to a their Oscar-winning score for The Social Network in 2010, their Grammy-winning soundtrack for 2013’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and more, the Reznor and Ross recently finished the score for Leonardo DiCaprio‘s upcoming documentary on climate change (Before The Flood) and are working on the music for Peter Berg‘s upcoming film about the 2013 Boston Marathon terrorist attacks (Patriots Day).However, perhaps the most exciting project currently underway by the prolific duo is not for a film: According to an interview on Beats 1 Radio with Zane Lowe, Reznor and Ross are in the process of recording a new Nine Inch Nails album, their first since 2013’s Hesitation Marks, though they are not yet putting a timeline on its release.Says Reznor in the interview. “I’m feeling creatively excited. And I’ve reminded myself – as I’ve veered off into technology for a while – that the act of writing and self-examination that comes from making music really helps me understand who I am again. Things are going good and when we have something that we think is excellent, we will unleash it on the world.”While it seems as though the new album is still in its nascent stages, this is certainly good news for fans of Nine Inch Nails.[via Rolling Stone][Cover Photo via Wall Street Journal]last_img read more

Watch Scott Metzger, Joe Russo, Robert Walter, & Andy Hess Destroy Brooklyn Comes Alive [Pro-Shot Video]

first_imgThe second annual Brooklyn Comes Alive was a dreamy success, bringing together dozens of musicians to play in once-in-a-lifetime rotations. Taking over three venues in the heart of Williamsburg, the day-long event will surely go down in the books as one of the more unique of its kind. Of the many highlights was this super group that had only played together once before as the Brooklyn Bowl All-Stars.Returning to their familiar stage was Scott Metzger, Joe Russo, Robert Walter, and Andy Hess for a fantastic set of NY-bred jams. The band performed some awesome covers–“Yeah, You’re Right” by The Meters, “The Ironic Twist” by Jimmie Vaughn, and “Funky Mule” by Ike Turner–while also including a few Metzger-led WOLF! songs and some Robert Walter original compositions. The two biggest highlights, however, came in the form of The Beatles‘ “Day Tripper” and The Band‘s “Ophelia”, which both drew huge reactions from the excited audience. Russo and Metzger are no strangers to the Bowl, and they know just how to harness the energy in that room, putting on an energetic performance that delivered the goods.Earlier today, the festival shared nearly 30 minutes of music from the venerable quartet. Sandwiching The Beatles classic “Day Tripper” are Metzger’s WOLF! original “Pork ‘N Slaw” and Robert Walter’s 20th Congress‘ “Don’t Chin The Dog.” Building in the classic covers with some original disposition fulfilled the festival’s craving of rock and roll to the fullest extent. Enjoy:Setlist: Yeah, You’re Right (The Meters), Aquafresh (Robert Walter), Pork n Slaw (WOLF!), Day Tripper (The Beatles), Don’t Chin The Dog (Robert Walter), The Ironic Twist (Jimmie Vaughn), Funky Mule (Ike Turner), Sock Full of Quarters (WOLF!), Corey’s Snail and Slug Death (Robert Walter), Ophelia (The Band)If you haven’t already, check out Jason Hann’s Rhythmatronix featuring Raul Pineda, Oteil Burbridge, Fareed Haque, Todd Stoops, Kofi Burbridge, and Elise Testone. Also recently released is the Natalie Cressman & Friends full set, featuring Nikki Glaspie, Will Bernard, Chris Bullock, Benny Rietveld, Samora Pinderhughs, Danny Sadownick, Louis Cato, and Elise Testone. We’ll be releasing more audio and video from Brooklyn Comes Alive over the coming months.

New Bonnaroo Clue Points To Umphrey’s McGee As 2017 Performer

first_imgFans of Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival know that the major event always teases their lineup with a series of “Roo Clues” before the big reveal. Today, the festival has posted up a clue that seemingly points to one of our favorite jam groups, Umphrey’s McGee.The clue reads: “There are strange things done in the midnight sun after the anchor drops.” UM fans will immediately recognize the final two words, Anchor Drops, as the title of UM’s 2004 album. The remainder of the rhyme points to a 19th century poem titled “The Cremation of Sam McGee,” in which the first line is, “There are strange things done in the midnight sun, by the men who moil for gold.” The fact that the poem references a McGee, and that the Roo Clue references Anchor Drops, makes it almost certain that Umphrey’s will be performing at Bonnaroo.Umphrey’s is no stranger to Bonnaroo, having played the festival in 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014. The festival is expected to make a full lineup announcement within the coming weeks, so keep your eyes out for the news! So far, we have heard a report that U2 will be headlining, but that remains to be seen.Meanwhile, Umphrey’s McGee just wrapped up a three night hometown New Year’s run, and will be touring with Spafford, Joshua Redman and more throughout the winter. They also had Ethan Cutkosky (aka Carl from Shameless) in attendance during their NYE run, as you can see here.last_img read more
