New Music | Shovels & Rope – Botched Execution

We are just two weeks away from the release of the new album, Little Seeds, from Shovels & Rope and earlier today the duo premiered their latest tune, “Botched Execution,” accompanied by a super-slick video made to look like a retro comic book. The song is hip-shaking, boot-stomping fun about a man on the run from the law after surviving a poorly executed execution, and the video keeps up the frenetic pace with a Sin City type flare. I bet this is going to be a helluva lot of fun live! Speaking of live, don’t forget Shovels & Rope will be in Boston on…

Saturday at Newport Folk 2016 in Photos

Saturday at the Folk Fest… Remember our Friday Folk post where the discussion of cloning oneself so that you could catch all the acts came to life. Well Saturday’s lineup had me tossing and turning trying to figure out how to pull off something of this magnitude for perfect Music Savage coverage. In hindsight I should have gotten a few hours more sleep but that’s neither here nor there. Let’s get to the folkin’ amazingness that was Day 2 shall we? What we saw on the Fort Stage. Nashville troubadour Rayland Baxter kicked off the day’s performances here to an enthusiastic crowd who…

Friday at Newport Folk 2016 in Photos

Friday at the Folk Fest… Really very hard to believe that we are already a week removed from the shear greatness that was NFF ’16 and all we have now are our memories to keep us going through the normal routine of our lives. Nothing wrong with that of course. If we all were to spend every weekend like that, surrounded by great music and amazing people in a spectacular location, would they be as special as the fourth week of July? Yes! Friday. Opening day. People arriving to the Fort in droves via ferry, bike, bus, teleportation. Maybe not…

New Music | Foxtails Brigade – Nun But The Lost

Far away and long ago (July of 2015 to be exact) we were delighted to share a spectacular video from Californian quintet Foxtails Brigade to announce their upcoming self-titled album. At that time there was no set release date, but that has changed with the new year. Foxtails Brigade, the band’s third LP, will be available on April 8th via OIM Records and we were sent the fantastic new single, “Nun But The Lost,” along with the announcement.

The track spins and swirls in so many different directions there is entirely no point to try and nail it down to any specific type of sound or style. Lead singer and guitarist Laura Weinbach’s vocals dance around a dizzying array of horns, strings, crashing cymbals, and chirping birds. The tempo changes with almost every verse and repeated plays will be necessary to catch it all. “Nun But The Lost” is everything AND the kitchen sink!

New Music | Sturgill Simpson – Brace For Impact (Live A Little)

This week we were treated to a nice surprise in the form of a new album from Kentucky musician Sturgill Simpson. His third full-length album is titled A Sailor’s Guide to Earth and will be released April 15th via Atlantic Records. To celebrate this fantastic news we’d like to share with you the excellent new single, “Brace For Impact (Live A Little),” which deftly highlights Simpson’s knack for taking country music into new territories of structure and sound. A Sailor’s Guide to Earth was produced by Simpson and recorded at Nashville’s The Butcher Shoppe. Sturgill and his band will be…

New Music | Greyhounds – Devil’s Eyes

Austin duo Greyhounds are set to release their brand new album, Change of Pace, out April 1st via Ardent Music, and we have the video for the first single, “Devil’s Eyes,” to share with you fine folks. This is the second record on the legendary Memphis label, following the 2014 album Accumulator, and the Texas twosome have delivered another funky dose of soulful, southern goodness. The video for Devil’s Eyes is Austin-tastic (yep that’s a word) and, having lived in the live music capital of the world, it brings this Lonestar boy right back right back to his adopted home. …

New Music | Frightened Rabbit – Death Dream

Super excited for the brand new release from Frightened Rabbit and I’m very happy to share with you the new single, “Death Dream.” The track is the opening number from the Scottish band’s forthcoming album, Painting of a Panic Attack, out April 8th via Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records. It’s been three years since we have had new Frightened Rabbit music and about the same amount of time since the boys last tour of the states supporting their fourth album, Pedestrian Verse. During those years lead singer Scott Hutchison, along with fellow Rabbit members Andy Monaghan (guitar/keyboards), and Simon Liddell (guitar) recorded and released an eponymous…
