Legendary jam band Phish have returned with their 12th studio album ‘Fuego’. Originally reuniting out of genuinely wanting t hang out, eventually the band sat down to try to write in a way they never had before. Listen to guitarist Trey Anastasio and keyboardist Page McConnell talk about writing the songs across 5 notepads via NPR. Of course the only real way to experience Phish is live, check out their tour dates here to see if they hit your town. Vacationer return with their highly anticipated follow-up record ‘Relief’. The Philly-based group, consisting of The Starting Line’s Kenny Vasoli along with Body Language’s Matthew Young and Grant Wheeler, refine their months on the road into tighter and more powerful tracks. Watch the recently released video for the infectiously sunny ‘The Wild Life’. Cleveland alt-rock group SomeKindaWonderful have released their self-titled debut album. Watch the video for the slightly-disorienting hit song ‘Reverse’ on their Vevo Channel or stream the full album on their YouTube with the SKW Visualizer. A short string of US dates has already been announced with a full tour in the works.

ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings will release Mike Gordon‘s new solo album, Overstep, on February 25, 2014. Gordon shared songwriting duties with guitarist and longtime collaborator Scott Murawski and handed over the producing reins for the first time in his solo career, enlisting Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Uncle Tupelo, Pixies). He also invited a few new players into the studio, including legendary drummer Matt Chamberlain (Jon Brion, Fiona Apple).
Gordon will celebrate the release of Overstep with a North American headline tour that will kick off at the Westcott Theatre in Syracuse, NY on February 28. The run will include a date at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver, BC (March 22). The bassist/vocalist will be joined on the road by his longtime band – Scott Murawski (guitar), Craig Myers (percussion), Tom Cleary (keyboards) and Todd Isler (drums). The new repertoire will be augmented by hints of secret synesthetic mad scientist gadgetry on and around the stage.
A limited number of tickets are available NOW via a real-time presale at http://tickets.mike-gordon.com/. Tickets will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, December 13, at 10:00 AM ET. See below for itinerary or visit the tour dates page at mike-gordon.com for further details.
Overstep is Gordon’s fourth solo album, following 2003′s Inside In, 2008′s The Green Sparrow and 2010′s Moss. Gordon is a founding member of Phish, which will wrap up 2013 with a sold-out, four-night stand at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. He has also performed with numerous other artists and released two albums with Leo Kottke.
