Harry Houdini, A musical anointing, and the Ghosts of Jim Crow: The North Mississippi AllStars

Leslie Jenkins believes in the power of the blues. She believes in its’ power to lift the souls of those who truly are listening. If The Blues were to be a religion, I suspect she’d be in the front pew, ready for a anointing thru music each and every Saturday night. Or – better yet, she might heed a calling and lead the congregation, preferably with a historically accurate homemade instrument. Music - for the farmer and local television personality, is a religious expression to be made with careful consideration.

Krishna Das releases New Album, Tour Dates

Called the “Chant Master of American Yoga” by the New York Times, Krishna Das will release Heart As Wide As The World, his first studio album in ten years, on March 2nd. The album is a collaboration with David Nichtern (“Midnight at the Oasis”) who produced and played guitar. Jerry Marotta (Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel) on drums, percussion.  As well as, world musicians Steve Gorn on bansuri flute and Benjy Wertheimer on esraj, amongst an array of other instruments.

Layering traditional Hindu kirtan with instantly accessible melodies and modern instrumentation, Krishna Das has been called yoga’s “rock star.”  With a remarkably soulful voice that touches the deepest chord in even the most casual listener, Krishna Das – known to friends, family, and fans as simply KD – has taken the call-and-response chanting out of yoga centers and into concert halls, becoming a worldwide icon and the best-selling chant artist of all time, with over 300,000 records sold.  His first studio recording in a decade, “HEART AS WIDE AS THE WORLD” invests KD’s magnetic chanting with an electrifying rock ‘n’ roll sensibility informed by a lifetime of experience and musical love.

Krishna Das has been recording his popular and much-loved albums of kirtan since 1996. Having made numerous pilgrimages to India throughout his career and meeting teachers of many spiritual traditions, Krishna Das follows the path of Bhakti yoga – the yoga of devotion – and brings a lifetime of spirituality into his music. Over the years, his collaborators in the studio have included Rick Rubin on Door of Faith, Sting on Pilgrim Heart and Mike D in a 50-person kirtan choir on Breath of the Heart, also produced by Rubin.


Krishna Das has toured extensively through North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America, and counts Madonna and Mike D of the Beastie Boys amongst his fans. Krishna Das will be touring this spring with Deva Premal & Miten, dubbed “The Johnny and June Carter Cash of chant” by Yoga Journal . Together they are creating an extraordinary series of concerts across the US, highlighting the newfound popularity of kirtan and mantra chanting. These musicians, who have enjoyed a worldwide grassroots success the past decade, are each celebrating the release of new albums with their first co-headlined tour.

King Sunny Ade and His African Beats @ Boulder Theater

King Sunny Ade is the undisputed king of juju music, the dance-inspiring hybrid of western pop and traditional African music with roots in the guitar tradition of Nigeria. For 30 years King Sunny Ade has been thrilling audiences and listeners with dynamic live performances creative videos and innovative recordings.

In 1982, Island Records signed Adé for Europe and North America (promoting him as 'the African Bob Marley'). The three albums were - Juju Music, Synchro System and Aura. When the artist and the label ultimately disagreed on the artist’s future artistic direction, they parted ways amicably. For almost ten years, King Sunny Adé continued to release records and dominate the domestic music industry in Nigeria, while only vinyl imports trickled out to the rest of the world.In 1996 Adé signed a new deal with Atlantic Records subsidiary, Mesa/Bluemoon under which he released three records. E Dide / Get Up. Odu, and Seven Degrees North.

In January 2002, Ade completed a four year term as President of The Performing Musicians Assoc. of Nigeria (the national musicians union) Still performing weekly at a wide variety of parties and events, both public and private, King Sunny Adé intends to use his newly recaptured free time to focus on his music. With 111 albums to his credit already in Nigeria, African music fans can surely look forward to more great things to come. Juju Music Juju music is a music of broad social messages. Rooted in the ancient Yoruba tradition of conveying broad social and cultural messages. Musically it is a thrilling hybrid of Western pop and traditional African music that incorporates electric guitars and synthesisers with such indigenous instruments as talking drums.

King Sunny Ade and The African Beats tour with the typically large African line-up of 20-30 members. They play a spacey, jamming sort of Juju, characterized by tight vocal harmonies, intricate guitar work, backed by traditional talking drums, percussion instruments, and even adding the unusual pedal steel guitar and accordian.

LIVING COLOUR Announce North American Tour

Living Colour have announced North American tour dates in support of their new album The Chair In The Doorway. The highly anticipated 28-date run will be bookended by performances at The Highline Ballroom in New York City, as they appear August 10 opening for The Roots at their weekly Tuesday night jam session and then again on October 30 for their own headline performance. In between, the band will hit 19 states around the U.S., including a return to The Key Club in Los Angeles on September 24, The Regency Grand Ballroom in San Francisco on September 25 and The Double Door in Chicago on October 4. They'll cross the border for a show in Toronto at Lee's Palace on October 3.

 

living-colourThe Chair In The Doorway, set for release September 15 on Megaforce Records, was recorded at Sono Studios just outside of Prague in the Czech Republic. Renowned producer Count (Galactic, Lyrics Born, No Doubt) was onboard to helm the sessions, while Ron St. Germain (U2, Mos Def, Muse) mixed the album. The 11-track collection is Living Colour's most personal collection of songs yet with razor sharp lyrical observations and kinetic jams that seamlessly weave elements of metal, funk and soul. Vernon Reid described the album as, "an unintentional concept record about life and how we are all in this thing together."

 

Living Colour formed out of New York City in the mid-'80s. Their incendiary performances at CBGBs became the stuff of legend. The Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger, who witnessed one of these shows, was so impressed that he insisted upon producing a demo for the fledgling band and later helped them score a record deal. Living Colour's debut album Vivid went double platinum and garned the band a Grammy Award. Around this same time, the band's founder, Vernon Reid, helped form the Black Rock Coalition to help create opportunities for African-American musicians playing rock music in a largely segregated music business. The results of these efforts paired with Living Colour's own success helped pave the way for artists like Ben Harper, Rage Against The Machine and TV On The Radio. In 2007, Living Colour's hit song "Cult Of Personality" was selected for Guitar Hero III. The game has gone onto sell over 14 million copies, introducing the band to a new generation of fans.

 

Upcoming Living Colour tour dates are:
 
August 10 | The Highline Ballroom | New York, NY (w/ The Roots)
September 1 | The Birchmere | Alexandria, VA

KRAAK & SMAAK TO TOUR NORTH AMERICA

Rose of Kraak & Smaak- for the Grateful Web

Holland's breakthrough act KRAAK & SMAAK is getting ready to rock North America as a full band in support of their latest album PLASTIC PEOPLE out now on ULTRA Records.  On November 6 at Eighteenth Street Lounge in Washington D.C., they'll kick off their 14-show date tour that will take them through many major markets throughout the U.S. and into Canada in support of the album.

Although KRAAK & SMAAK originally started out as a studio project for the founding members Oscar De Jong, Mark Kneppers & Wim Plug, it quickly became one of the hottest live properties in electronic music. The additional live band members of Ro Krom (drummer, vocalist), Rose (vocalist) and Marc (bass) - coupled with the keyboards, FX and percussion played by the band themselves - are a formidable slice of funk on the dance floor.

Released September 9 in North America as the band's sophomore record, Plastic People captures the K&S brand of future funk and features the first single "Squeeze Me."   The song is currently gaining great exposure through Rhapsody's national TV ad campaign which can be viewed here.

In addition to the banjo twang, disco suave synths, hints of a string orchestra, gypsy-tinged clarinet melody and the soulful broken beat that threads its way through the music, the album also has stand-out collaborations, including "That's My Word" which features one of their heroes, rapper Dudley Perkins.   Wrote Bruce Tatum of Time Out New York (September 11-17), "From the boogie-time bounce of album opener 'Bobby & Whitney' to the dreamy disco of 'Thinking Back' through to the vaguely Eastern, synth-led exoticism of closer 'To Everyone Who Has,' Plastic People has a breadth and depth that puts most club-oriented albums to shame."

Since releasing their debut album Boogie Angst in 2006, they have played over 200 live band gigs, have been hailed as a "Must See Live Band," supported the stadium-rocking Faithless on their European tour and played some of the most prestigious gigs in the U.S. last year including SXSW and shows at the Winter Music Conference.

KRAAK & SMAAK will appear in North America this November:

The Rumble Strips Tour North America

The Rumble Strips- for the Grateful Web

In 'Girls and Weather', The Rumble Strips have recorded a truly classic debut album.  With their somewhat eccentric origins in Devon, the four young men from Tavistock have fashioned a set of songs steeped with huge, life-affirming choruses all awash with the optimism of youth. This is a  band whose sound and look is entirely their own: thundering drums and  piano, brass to stir the soul and singer Charlie Waller's voice – a  thing of rare beauty and power suggesting the arrival of a genuine new  star.

Among the band's most passionate fans is producer du jour, Mark Ronson. Having heard Rumble Strips' spine tingling reworking of Amy Winehouse's 'Back to Black', Ronson fell in love with the band. He promptly invited Charlie to sing lead vocals at his acclaimed BBC Electric Proms performance at the London Roundhouse last year, with Charlie's performance widely declared the highlight of the evening. Further guest appearances have followed as Ronson and Charlie's relationship has blossomed, with the most recent show seeing Charlie being flown out to Coachella to sing with Mark.          

"Girls and Weather" opens with Charlie hollering as if his life depended on it, "I ain't got no soul". What follows is 12 songs bristling with energy, frantic rhythms, wide-eyed yearning and certainly no little soul.

Indeed, the Young Soul Rebel spirit of the singles 'Alarm Clock' and 'Motorcycle' is evident on the album, but the record also takes in a range of less expected (but no less profound) influences: the gorgeous harmonies are born out of the band's love of 1950s doo-wop, whilst the epic nature of Charlie's song writing recalls the oddball genius of both Adam Ant and Queen (as imagined by the Stax house band).

Elsewhere, the brass on 'Oh Creole' is like a rousing, doom laden Van Morrison classic, whilst the E Street holler of 'Hate Me (You Do)' owes its anthemic quality to Tom Gorbutt's inspired saxophone opening. Clocking in under two minutes, August single 'Girls and Boy in Love' is all hand clap rhythms, Motown piano and gorgeous, bitter sweet melodies - a festival anthem for certain.

Recalling the achingly close, three part harmonies of Rubber Soul era Beatles, 'Don't Dumb Down' is a scathing tale of faking to impress.  Key lyrics:  "You don't come from London do you? / But, sometimes you sound like you do / What the hell is that all about?"

The album closes with arguably it's strongest moment.  Built around a huge, Talking Heads-esque piano rhythm, 'Hands' is an extraordinary piece of song writing. Charlie's almost spoken word delivery is like an anglicized Springsteen, as he talks of finding himself, "on the hard shoulder of the motorway / to my feet I tried to complain / but I don't think they were listening", as the song build to almighty crescendo.

The Rumble Strips are a truly special group:  Pure, sad and romantic. Theirs are songs that strike a chord with the masses, whilst remaining enigmatic and standing alone from the crowd.
