Since his stunning debut, Thunderstorms and Neon Signs in 1995, Wayne “The Train” Hancock has been the undisputed king of Juke Joint Swing - that alchemist’s dream of honky-tonk, western swing, blues, Texas rockabilly and big band. Always an anomaly among his country music peers, Wayne’s uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is in fact what defines him: steeped in traditional but never "retro;" bare bones but bone shaking; hardcore but with a swing. Like the comfortable crackle of a Wurlitzer 45 jukebox, Wayne is the embodiment of genuine, house rocking, hillbilly boogie. Wayne makes music fit for any road house anywhere.
Though Dale Watson’s recording career spans two decades, the maverick country traditionalist has never before released an album like this. “There’s nothing here that’s retro,” insists Dale of Carryin’ On. “I was really hoping to make a record with today’s technology, but with the musicians who played on the music I grew up on. I’m pretty happy with the way we’ve merged today with yesterday on this album. It will remind people of the old records, but it sounds like something new.”

The Band WHISKEYDICK consists of Two Tattooed MetalNecks( Fritz and Reverend Johnson ) . They met while both playing in two different Metal bands and would always have an after party after our shows. So they started playing acoustic guitars and jammin' on old country songs which then led to them writing their own songs. They have been a two piece acoustic band since their first show in 2005. After their first couple of shows they decided that they needed a band name. Nursing a hangover on their way to a show Fritz blurted out from the back seat ..." I Got It !!!! " ....WHISKEYDICK !!! Reverend hated it at first but after a minute he came to like it. With: Gallows Bound

One might think from their humble beginnings in the backwaters and basements of coastal Georgia to their headlining shows at some of Atlanta’s most well known independent venues that the members of Little Tybee were the harbingers of some secret formula for artistic success. In reality, they are simply a group of friends who couldn’t stop making music together if they tried.
The core of each of their songs begins in the relentless and creative mind of vocalist/guitarist/pianist Brock Scott. The songs mature through the dedicated musicianship of 8-string guitarist Josh Martin, violinist Nirvana Kelly, bassist Ryan Donald, and percussionist Pat Brooks. Since the release of their first LP last year, they have discovered that change is not only inevitable, but indeed good. WITH: The Normadies & River Spirit

Question: just how do you go about trying to match an album as peerless, wholly immersive, and as widely acclaimed and adored as Daughter's 2013 debut 'If You Leave?' Simple: up the ante on every level. Building on that record's gloriously dark intensity, wracked emotion and come-hither diaphanous textures, 'Not To Disappear,' the new full-length release from the London-based trio -- singer/guitarist Elena Tonra, guitarist/producer Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguilella -- is a mighty declaration of intent. Profoundly ruminative and lugubrious, bold and direct, it's arguably even more assertive and compelling than its much-lauded predecessor. WSG: Julien Baker

Zakk Wylde has been no stranger to success over the years. At only 19 years old, he was tapped to join Ozzy Osbourne’s band as lead guitarist and co-writer. He performed with Osbourne for nearly twenty years.
Wylde formed Black Label Society in 1998 as a vehicle for his own artistic vision: uncompromising, unfiltered, no bullshit rock’n’roll.
Black Label Society quickly became a touring juggernaut and has gone on to release seven successful studio albums which have sold well over a million and a half albums total. But record sales only tell part of the story-it’s the legions of fans that turn out to see Wylde perform his masterful talents on the guitar and piano that are the true testament to his success.

Two worlds have collided, and what glorious and odd worlds they are. After a successful summer tour pairing Primus with Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Les Claypool and Sean Lennon have decided to combine their abstract talents into a project called The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Their efforts thus far have spawned the upcoming, full-length release called “Monolith of Phobos.”

Toots Hibbert is one of the great voices of Jamaica; a legend whose career spans every development in Jamaican music, from ska through rock-steady to reggae. Toots and the Maytals have helped to chart the course of Jamaican music with unrivaled delivery and dynamism, setting new standards of excellence, and becoming the most enduring of all Jamaica’s groups.
Born in Maypen in the parish of Clarendon, Jamaica – the youngest of seven children – Toots began singing in the church choir at the age of seven. He left home in his teens to go to Kingston where he met Raleigh Gordon and Jerry Matthias and formed the original Maytals in 1962. They were also sometimes recorded as the Vikings.
The Maytals began their career at Studio One, the headquarters of Clement ‘Coxsone’ Dodd, in Kingston, Jamaica. The group’s debut release, HALLELUJAH, was an immediate hit throughout the island, and featured a mix of Jamaican rhythms and gospel vocal influence that would mark much of the Maytals music. Further successes followed, including I’LL NEVER GROW OLD and JUST GOT TO BE ME, each one building a reputation for the Maytals and their energetic straight-from-church style of singing and their “spiritual” ska beat.

When punk rock judgment day comes, everyone knows which side of the fence BAYSIDE will be on’ the legitimate one. The current state of rock music has left acts in a never-ending sea of ‘genres,’ and this current state of affairs has resulted in numerous bands tailoring their look and sound into something that can be labeled. Artists are unjustly pigeonholed and careers are shortened as a result. But amazingly, BAYSIDE has prevailed as rock’s leading indefinable, working class, relateable rock heroes. Since their inception on Long Island one fateful winter day in 2000, BAYSIDE has become the voice for the misanthropic and the hopeful alike. Having released four studio albums with Victory Records since signing on in 2003, BAYSIDE has sold over a quarter-of-a-million records and has become one of the most likable bands in the industry. The non-fickle foursome remain loyal to their long-time fans, dubbed ‘The Cult’, yet they manage to convert new followers every day. The loyalty extends not only to their fans, but also to each other, as BAYSIDE stays together like a band of brothers, even during times of tragedy. With: The Menzingers & Sorority Noise

It was the Year of Our Lord 2013, and I was devouring a cheeseburger in a Chatsworth, California, franchise of a certain multinational fast food conglomerate which shall remain nameless. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a crazed looking clown walking in my direction. Wearing a costume of bright yellow and red, and giant shiny shoes, he seemingly fit into the surroundings, but it didn’t take long to see that something wasn’t quite right. His costume was trailed by long, tattered, hippie fringe that was dirty from scraping the floor (and most likely the alley behind the restaurant), and more alarmingly his face was caked in ghostly make up that looked like it had been smeared on with a putty knife. My first thought was that he looked like Skeletor as a member of Uriah Heap. Taking a seat in my booth, he informed me that his name was Ronald Osborne, and he that he was familiar with my oddity rock band Rosemary’s Billygoat. He was a fan of the band, and said he had a concept I might appreciate, something he termed “drive-thru metal.” Some of the delinquent kids who worked for the franchise had been allowing him and a cast of characters named Slayer Mac Cheeze, Grimalice, and the Cat Burglar, to perform secret rock shows in the bunker-like basements of the local restaurants. But the time had come, he said, to bring drive-thru metal up from the “underground,” and he asked if I would consider becoming the manager of his band. I asked him what the act was called, and proclaimed with pride, “MAC SABBATH!” WSG: Clownvis Presley

After debuting on Century Media Records in 2006 with the critically acclaimed 'Death To Tyrants' album and celebrating their 20th anniversary in the same year, SICK OF IT ALL certainly deserve being labelled a “living legend”, and still prove that classic New York hardcore is alive and kicking! With a career spanning 20 years and hundreds of thousands of albums sold worldwide, the band’s highly anticipated new album 'Based On A True Story' will add an exhilarating new chapter to the SICK OF IT ALL legend. Doubtlessly the band’s hardest hitting effort to date, 'Based On A True Story' easily meets the high quality of its predecessor and offers tons of soon-to-be-classic hardcore hymns like 'Dominated', 'Long As She’s Standing', 'The Divide' and 'Lowest Common Denominator. It features the most catchy and powerful material the band has ever written. WSG: Friend or Foe

Mystic Braves’ might be rooted in the psychedelic scene of the 1960s, but the band’s moment is happening right now. After an impressive national tour boasting packed shows from Brooklyn to Seattle and beyond, the band returned home to Los Angeles only to sell out their first-ever show at West Hollywood’s legendary Troubadour in advance. It’s only the latest in a string of triumphs for the band, who saw record turnout around the country as they toured in advance of a forthcoming third album.

Contained within are ten tracks of the type of sonic psyche-frazzling heaviness and blood-drenched pop that have made Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats one of Britain’s great cult bands. Recorded at Toe Rag studios in early 2015 with engineer Liam Watson (White Stripes, Tame Impala, Electric Wizard), their fourth opus The Night Creeper finds the quartet in full-on death-tripping, third eye-widening mode. Here songs ooze louche evil over flesh-melting riffs that creep like hot magma bubbling up through the earth’s crust at their own malevolent pace. This album is in no hurry to destroy you. But it will. It will.

Innocence Reaches begins with a query. “How do you identify?” coos a robotic voice over a strikingly modern mix of bright synthpop and surging rave. The question too feels very of its time—as outdated ideas about gender and attraction are being overturned—but it’s also a fair ask whenever of Montreal debuts an album.
The project’s 14th LP follows two full decades of mercurial creative mania: swallowing up ‘60s psych-pop, Prince-ly funk, and glammy prog in turn; morphing freely between full-band affair and cloistered confessional booth; comprising lyrics both painfully personal and absurdly fantastical; and recently drawing site-specific inspiration from culture capitals like San Francisco or New York City. The thread that runs through it all is Athens, GA’s Kevin Barnes, and Innocence Reaches finds him at his most light-hearted in years, working a Parisian stint, Top 40 sounds, and his newfound single status into the kaleidoscopic swirl. Even as he continues to sift the sonic and emotional detritus of his past, Barnes sums up his current mood in the opener’s title: “let’s relate.” WSG: Ruby the Rabbitfoot
