Sunday at Newport Folk Festival in Photos

Beck [I]t’s hard to believe that the festival was just last weekend. Sunday was a welcome repeat of clear skies and a warm sun shining down on the Fort. There were a lot of acts we wanted to see and there was no time to sit idly by. Among the numerous performers were Cold Specks, Andrew Bird, Tift Merritt, The Felice Brothers, Spirit Family Reunion, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Joe Fletcher, Michael Kiwanuka, The Lumineers and a grand finale with Beck. Enjoy the final in photos from our photographer, Jamie Reiley, and let us know what your favorite act or acts…

Wishlist | Newport Folk Fest 2013 – Part One

[A]s we near the end of winter we’ll all be thinking about long hot summer days, and of course, Newport Folk Festival. It’s become the must go event of the summer for many of the music lovers in the northeast, selling out the last few years, and this year quickly selling out on early bird tickets and three day passes.  There are still tickets available, but they are being gobbled up pretty quickly, and will soon cease to exist. All of this has been done by the NFF team without any formal spending in marketing, and remarkably without actually posting a lineup.

That lack of a lineup leaves a lot of us putting our faith in those that create the festival, and well, we’d love to put our input in … because well, we’ve got this outlet and we’re always eager to spread the gospel of the bands we love. So we were thinking, of the bands we all love who would we like to see most at Newport this summer?

If you haven’t already gotten tickets, I’d suggest you do so now, before they sell out. >> Buy Tickets < <

Hey all, it’s finally time to top the list. I had originally intended for this to land yesterday, but due to your awesomeness we ran out of bandwidth…so here we are, atop the mountain of music, these are what I thought was best of the year. 10.

2012 | Steve’s Top Albums of the Year

1. Father John Misty – Fear Fun [C]roce, Skynard, Nilsson, Fogerty and Morrison had a baby and named it Father John Misty. Right out of the gate this album rocketed to the top of my most listened to list. Hooked in by “Well You Can Do It Without Me”‘s Nilsson-like flavor and then drawn into the much deeper and more complicated workings of stunners such as “Funtimes in Babylon”, “Only Son of the Ladies Man”, and… fuck it, the whole album is fantastic. 2. The Lumineers – The Lumineers [I]t says a lot about the state of the musical union…

New Music | Michael Kiwanuka – Lasan

Check out this B-Side to Kiwanuka’s single “I’m Getting Ready,” which will also be featured on Michael’s debut album, Home Again, which is set for release 3/12 in the UK and some time later in the summer here in the US (BOOOOO!). The track was recorded in London and produced by Dan Auerbach (Black Keys) at Ray Davies’ studio. Kiwanuka’s effortlessly gorgeous vocals take this slow moving track into a daylight atmosphere perfect for a lazy day with this super chill vibe.

Video | Michael Kiwanuka – I’m Getting Ready

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHRKdpR1E6Q[/youtube] If you are previously unaware of Michael Kiwanuka, you’ve probably not seen my incessant posts about him. His warm voice lights this song up, and its one that you can listen to on repeat for days. Enough said. I couldn’t help but post the video for the song (although its the second I’m seeing). Its becoming one of my favorite songs of the year. His voice reminiscent of Otis Redding & Bill Withers, his music a little Dylan, and a little Nick Drake this song just can’t get out of my head.
