Throughout the past eight decades of bluegrass music, each era of the genre has been marked with a certain kind of standout act; not in terms of popularity or radio airplay, but based on the amount of other world-class musicians hanging out at this one group’s shows on their off nights. From the Stanley Brothers and Flatt & Scruggs to the Bluegrass Album Band and Nashville Bluegrass Band, there’s always one band of players’ players out there dropping the jaws of their contemporaries.

Denver-based, Boston-bred jam-rock outfit The Jauntee have announced the release of their third full-length studio album Anything out on July 14th via Regime Music Group. Today, the group debuts the lead single “Brick by Brick” accompanied by a lyric video that can be viewed HERE.

Today Dave Matthews Band releases their 10th studio album, Walk Around The Moon, on RCA Records. One of Pitchfork’s “Most Anticipated Albums of Summer 2023,” Walk Around The Moon is a pandemic-born record that is as much a reflection on the current times as it is an urge to find common ground. The twelve-track album, recorded with producer Rob Evans in studios throughout Seattle, Charlottesville, and Los Angeles, uniquely captures this moment in time.
