The Belle Brigade make their MMR debut with their sophomore studio album ‘Just Because’. The album’s infectious single ‘Ashes’ dropped earlier this year whose video features the crafty sibling duo cut into stop motion. The California band recently announced a full North American tour supporting Ray LaMontagne as both his backing band and opening act. Built To Spill, Reggie Watts, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Lucius, Carl Broemel of My Morning Jacket and many more come together on ‘Bob Dylan in the 80s: Volume One’ which spans 1980′s ‘Saved’ to 1990′s ‘Under The Red Sky’. The tribute album aims to showcase Dylan during an off-peak period and bring a stronger sense of harmony to the material. Portions of proceeds from album sales will go to the charity Pencils of Promise, a non-profit organization that builds schools and increases educational opportunities in the developing world.
