Digging Deeper: Rusted Root's Devotion to the Light with the Music of The Movement

Perhaps at the most simple level musicians view it as their job to deliver the music their fans love them for and to put on a good, entertaining live performance. Beyond that however, making and performing music is about much more. For world jam rockers Rusted Root, this means a new devotion to consciousness, focus, and discovering the vibe and light of being for both themselves and their community of fans.

Minnesota | Altered States | New Music Review

With 2012 wrapping up shortly and 2013 on the horizon, the future looks incredibly bright for 23-year-old music producer Christian Bauhofer, better known as Minnesota.

Junkie XL | Synthesized | New Music Review

Few producers can stand the test of time and survive the modern-day music industry like Dutch music producer Tom Holkenborg, better known as Junkie XL. A one-man wrecking machine, Holkenborg has accomplished more in his 15-year career than many musicians could ever fathom. "When I found out in 1986 how my sampler could produce sounds, I knew it was pointless to ever leave the studio," says Holkenborg.

Jimkata | Die Digital | New Music Review

Listening to northeastern synth-tinged rock band Jimkata, it’s obvious that these boys want to add their own special blend of spice to the standard of indie fare that’s become business-as-usual in an increasingly predictable genre. And with their fourth studio album, Die Digital, the foursome augments what might otherwise function as stale pop-rock with vintage keys and electronics, adding a layer oftentimes absent from other lyrics-centric acts of this sort.

Days of You | New CD Review

Canadian-based jam band Days Of You is set to release their first album in over a decade, after taking a 12-year hiatus throughout the 2000’s. The band’s upcoming LP release, You Belong Where You Go, marks a triumphant return to the scene for the Canadian pioneers. Mixing elements of rock, blues, jazz, reggae, and folk, on top of improvisational experimentation, Days of You quickly gained success through community radio and word of mouth.

Days of You | New Music Review

The Canadian jam band Days of You has gone back to the studio to record their first album in 10 years. While release is not due until March 2013. The first 5 singles are available via their website.

John McLaughlin & the 4th Dimension | 'Now Here This' | Review

The only detractor to using the word jazz to describe a genre of music that is too many different progressions have made it useless as an adjective. What does it mean when something is “jazzy”? Many would here a walking bass line accompanied by swinging guitar licks and a brass section leading a melody. Others might think of Flamenco, Indian sitar styling, or Bluegrass. Many fans prefer the Modal or Cool sound and the artists of that classic period.

Mike Dillon Band | 'Urn' | New Music Review

Of all the great cities in the U.S. nothing can compare culturally to New Orleans. It seems all of the hardships endured have only strengthened and secured its identity as one of the best places to see impromptu jams or the biggest names in music and party down. Their Jazz Festival thrown every April sees the best touring musicians sitting down for uncommon collaborations, partying and playing all night.

Medeski Martin & Wood | 'Free Magic' | New Music Review

Free Magic. Isn’t that what jazz-fusion is? Using a launch pad of some familiar melody, rhythmic riff, or instrumentation, and building it forward and outward until it gets really weird. That’s what Miles Davis realized about jazz music in the late 60s, that it was the root of all American music, and with that in mind any so-called style could be integrated into the so-called genre of jazz.
