Ladysmith Black Mambazo Bring Vocal Serenity, Song & Humor on Tour

Ladysmith Black Mambazo kick off their North American tour on January 18 in Oakland, CA, blending their iconic, moving harmonies with high-energy toe-touches and audience sing-alongs.  The tour will make stops in over 40 major markets across the US and Canada (including Hawaii) in just two months.

From the stage, Mambazo's nine-man a cappella team will transport concert-goers to the open fields and idyllic world of their youth in South Africa's Zulu country, singing the traditional South African folk tunes from their forthcoming album 'Songs From A Zulu Farm' (out February 1 from Listen 2 Entertainment Group/ Razor & Tie Entertainment) as well as selections from their nearly 50 year career.

These songs speak to the universal joys of childhood. "Whether you are in Ladysmith, Virginia, or Ladysmith, South Africa," says Ladysmith Black Mambazo founder and frontman Joseph Shabalala, "children are hearing songs they will carry with them for the rest of their lives and share with their own children. We hope that these songs sung to South African children can be enjoyed by families in many other places in the world."

Listen to the entire CD here.  | Read some Grateful Web coverage of Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

Judy Collins to Stephen Stills: I Could Have Loved You Better

On 'Paradise,' out now from Wildflower Records, Judy Collins pairs up with former lover Stephen Stills on the Tom Paxton song "Last Thing on My Mind." The result is a fresh and sweetly melodic reminiscence of a couple’s breakup, beautifully weaving the duo's complementary voices together with softly jangling guitars. The poignant sound of the two singing “I could’ve loved you better… didn’t mean to be unkind/ Don’t you know that was the last thing on my mind” makes for a wonderfully lilting and bittersweet tune.

Listen to Judy Collins and Stephen Stills sing "Last Thing on My Mind" from 'Paradise' here.

Ryan Montbleau Band on All Things Considered

The Ryan Montbleau Band went to NPR's national headquarters in Washington, DC this week to record a live performance and interview for All Things Considered. The show will air on Thanksgiving Day. (Please check your local NPR affiliate's schedule for All Things Considered.)

Also, the band began a run of shows with JJ Grey & Mofro this week that will take us all over the northeast, including a Thanksgiving sandwich on Boston-and-Brooklyn bread. So far the shows have been a blast!

Girl Talk's New Album, All Day, Out Today

Celebrating 10-plus years of sample-obsessed production and relentless touring, Gregg Gillis returns with All Day, his fifth album as Girl Talk, and his most epic, densely layered, and meticulously composed musical statement to date.  Continuing the saga from the previously acclaimed albums, Night Ripper and Feed The Animals, Gillis lays down a more diverse range of samples to unfold a larger dynamic between slower transitions and extreme cut-ups.  With the grand intent of creating the most insane and complex pop collage album ever heard, large catalogs of both blatantly appropriated melodies and blasts of unrecognizable fragments were assembled for the ultimate Girl Talk record (clocking in at 71 minutes and 373 samples).

Earlier this year, Girl Talk finally took a break from touring, festival dates, and college shows, in order to create this album that is now being released immediately after its completion.  While posting the album as a free download on the Illegal Art label's site allows All Day to reach his fan-base quickly and with minimal cost, Gillis spent more time on this album than any previous release and considers it the most fully realized and evolved manifestation of the Girl Talk aesthetic.

Download Girl Talk’s All Day here for free.

(There are no strings attached to this free download – no email address needed, no potential donation, or anything of that nature, and it will remain this way indefinitely.)

Since the release of Feed The Animals, things have flourished for Girl Talk. He's played almost 300 shows and hardly taken a full week off from hitting the road. He's playing even larger venues and making even more of a spectacle -- he's employed a small crew of toilet paper launching stage hands, who also propel confetti, balloons, and inflate oddly chosen props into the audience. For the New Year's Eve show to ring in 2010, a team was hired to build a life-size house, with attention to fine details, on the stage at Chicago's Congress Theater.  Described as the craziest house party ever, Girl Talk continues to please live audiences as the mass of sweaty bodies at his shows continually grows. Touring highlights from the last couple of years include the Vancouver Olympics, large festivals such as Coachella, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, V-Fest, Sasquatch, Rothbury, Monolith, Planeta Terra, and trips to Australia, Japan, South America, Europe, and Mexico.

As previously announced, Girl Talk will be touring extensively in 2011 in support of this release.

2010 is Exceptional Year for Judy Collins

Judy Collins, who USA Today says "sounds as fresh and full of wonder as ever," has had a great year that included the June release of her "life-affirming gem of a record” (The Sun-UK) 'Paradise' (Wildflower Records), which became her highest-charting album in over a decade, and a North American tour that continues into December. She'll appear on NPR's news quiz show "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" December 4th and just taped a "Tiny Desk Concert" at NPR's Washington, DC headquarters last week.

In 2010, Judy Collins, called "one of the greatest interpreters of modern times" by Mojo, also:

*Contributed her version of "Over the Rainbow" from 'Paradise' to an oversized children's picture book and 3-song CD set about the #1 movie song of all time (Imagine Publishing), which reached the New York Times bestseller list.

*Performed a sold-out show at the Metropolitan Museum's Temple of Dendur in New York

*Gave the keynote address at a Musicares "Women in Recovery" event in New York

*Performed on  NPR Mountain Stage, listen here

*Performed at AARP's 50th Anniversary convention in Orlando, FL with Crosby, Stills & Nash.

*Auctioned beloved guitars from her extensive collection at Christie's in New York

*Inducted Leonard Cohen into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame

*Presented Mary Chapin Carpenter with the “Spirit of Americana” Free Speech in Music Award from the Newseum’s First Amendment Center and the Americana Music Association.

*Played the Glastonbury Festival for the first time.

With a career spanning 50 years, recording more than 40 albums, including gold and platinum-selling albums, numerous Top 10 hits, plus Grammy nominations, Judy Collins continues to claim her legendary status. ‘Paradise’ features Collins’ take on songs from the likes of Jimmy Webb, Tom Paxton, Joan Baez, Tim Buckley, and Stan Jones, as well as duets with Joan Baez and Stephen Stills.
