Alabama’s legendary roots rockers Drive-By Truckers enter the double digits with their 10th studio album ‘English Oceans’. The record’s 13 tracks show an almost equal split of writing credits between co-front men Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, watch the band perform Cooley’s track ‘Made Up English Oceans’ in the Lyric Theater in Birmingham, Alabama. The boys are on a North American tour right now supported by Blitzen Trapper and Shovels & Rope, see full dates here. Ume (pronounced “Ooo-May”) make their MMR debut with ‘Monuments‘. The Austin band play the hard rock equivalent of IDM layering meaty chords and ripping lead lines with melodic keyboard. Listen to the first single to drop from ‘Monuments’ titled ‘Chase It Down’. The very first song SomeKindaWonderful recorded together, ‘Reverse’ premiered yesterday on Idolator and is now up on iTunes. Frontman Jordy Towers tells Idolator “‘Reverse’ is a story song told in reverse. It’s a true story actually … Something about telling a story in reverse is almost more emotional and revealing to me and it just naturally came out in that form when I wrote it.”

Bassist and founding member of Phish, Mike Gordon releases his fourth solo album ‘Overstep’. A diverse but tightly knit family of sturdy rock numbers, the album features longtime collaborator Scott Murawski, legendary drummer Matt Chamberlain and is produced by Paul Q. Kolderie. The lush guitars and welcoming vocal harmonies of opener ‘Ether’ serve as an invitation to come along for a 49-minute “reality check.” Rival Boys make their MMR debut with the ‘Ice Storm’ EP, recorded in a single day at Toronto’s Revolution Recording Studios. The trio’s blend of harmonized vocals, violins, guitar, bass and propulsive drums provides stripped-down exciting rock with a punch, as heard on ‘Sober & Single’. The five track EP acts as a lead-up to their full-length album ‘animal instincts’ due for release in May. Join Rival Boys at The Silver Dollar Room February 28th for their EP release party.
