New Release: Alabama Shakes ‘Sound & Color’ & San Fermin ‘Jackrabbit’

Sound & Color – the follow-up to Alabama Shakes‘ Gold-certified debut album, Boys & Girlsdemonstrates the tremendous strides made by the band. From the gently swaying, chiming title song to the garage-rock freak-out on “The Greatest” to the psychedelic space jam “Gemini,” Alabama Shakes build on the soulful blues-rock base and map a surprising, innovative new direction. See the Shakes live when they come up to Canada headlining Toronto’s Field Trip festival and hit the west coast for Squamish Valley Music Festival. San Fermin bandleader Ellis Ludwig-Leone wrote Jackrabbit by himself from start to finish, only to find that after a year testing the songs on the road the album wasn’t nearly finished. Ellis explains, “I went from being this isolated composer guy, out in the woods, to sitting in the back of a van with seven other members playing shows in rock clubs every night. When I got back, I revisited it all, ripped these holes in the middle of all the existing songs and added some new songs. I rethought everything I had been writing.” Watch the full band performing “Emily” and the “title track” live via their YouTube.

Brandi Carlile To Release ATO/MapleMusic Debut ‘The Firewatcher’s Daughter’ March 3

brandi carlile

“Some of [the songs] rattle the floorboards; others are quieter, offering beautiful harmonies or rich storytelling. But no matter what they sound like, the songs on this release feel like rock and roll.” – Ann Powers, NPR Music

Watch/Listen to ‘The Eye’ HERE 

Brandi Carlile will make her independent label debut on ATO/MapleMusic March 3, 2015 with the release of ‘The Firewatcher’s Daughter.’  The 12-song album explodes with energy, urgency and pristine harmonies and represents the start of a fresh chapter for Carlile and her longtime collaborators Tim and Phil Hanseroth, also known as “The Twins.”

‘The Firewatcher’s Daughter’ was recorded almost entirely as first takes without any demoing and little rehearsal before gathering at Bear Creek Studio in Washington State.

The result is immediate and electrifying. ‘The Eye,’ a song influenced by Crosby, Stills and Nash, is so intimate and hushed you can hear the quiver of Brandi’s voice in a flawless 3-part harmony.  Lead-off track and first single ‘Wherever Is Your Heart’ captures a fiery intensity.
