Throughout much of Turn Off The News (Build a Garden), the new album from Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real that was released on Friday, there are sentiments to do exactly that. Turn off the news, go outside, unplug and just experience life. Pick up a copy of the LP at this link. On “Lotta Fun,” for example, Nelson (Willie’s son), begins with the line “I don’t trust computers anymore/Gonna buy a little weed in the marijuana store,” and that pretty much sums things up. This is a record about love, life and experiencing it free of the distractions…

Bruce Springsteen may have unintentionally undercut his own new album, Western Stars, with recent talks of reconvening with the E Street Band for a new album and tour — but the record, out today, deserves its own attention. Pick up a copy of the record now at this link. The LP finds the Boss visiting the troubadour/storyteller persona he’s used heavily throughout his career, and the songs boast some robust production flourishes. Look no further than “The Wayfarer,” which gives way to flittering orchestral accompaniment after a few verses of traditional Springsteenian singer/songwriter fare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uTWooB6V-4 The album’s title track, “Western…

There’s quite a bit of fire in Liam Gallagher’s new music video for “Shockwave,” the lead single off his forthcoming solo album — but the longtime Oasis vocalist doesn’t seem to mind it very much. In the visually dramatic clip which surfaced on Thursday, Gallagher stomps around the world in a variety of locations, several of them on fire. At one point he’s on the front lines of a protest, but those gathered are holding signs featuring lyrics from the song itself, which is a nice touch. Watch the video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBAhgZZNR7E “Shockwave” is the first song off Gallagher’s new…

Songwriter/bassist/vocalist John Lodge is known as one of the central figures behind the Moody Blues, and he has a busy summer ahead of him. In addition to taking part in the Royal Affair tour alongside YES, Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy and Asia, Lodge will release a new solo compilation on August 23. Beyond: The Very Best Of will combine new recordings, remixes and selections from his past that revisit both the best material from the Moody Blues as well as Lodge’s solo career. Here’s “Street Cafe” as a preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9c_LP3sKCk Like the song above, the album features some re-interpretations of…

On June 21, a compilation paying tribute to the musical contributions of the late Harry Nilsson will be released. This Is The Town: A Tribute to Nilsson (Volume 2) (pre-order here)is the sequel to the original tribute album released in 2014, and comes at a pretty relevant time. Not only was Harry Nilsson an important songwriter, but his music has undergone a bit of a renaissance lately thanks in large part to the Netflix series Russian Doll, which features “Gotta Get Up” heavily in its first season. https://twitter.com/royalpotato/status/1131932278211399681 That song isn’t represented on this new compilation album — it was…

The (excellent) new Elton John biopic Rocketman features a soundtrack heavy on classic songs from the Sir Elton and Bernie Taupin songbook — as well as a new composition, the bouncing and confident “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again.” A collaboration between Elton and Rocketman star Taron Egerton, the song now has its own music video incorporating scenes and images from the film with some excellent visual additions — soak it all in below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LtusBN3ST0 Rocketman came at a big time for the rock and roll biopic — after Bohemian Rhapsody made waves last year in the box office for its tale…

A recent New York Times story detailing the extensive damage caused by the Universal fire in 2008, which struck at Universal Studios Hollywood and resulted in the loss of a dizzying number of iconic recordings, including those mentioned in the passage below: “The list of destroyed single and album masters takes in titles by dozens of legendary artists, a genre-spanning who’s who of 20th- and 21st-century popular music.

Sum 41 has a new album, Order In Decline, set for release on July 19 — and if anybody was curious whether the Canadian pop-punk/metal band had plans to get heavy for this record, the answer seems to be a resounding yes. On Tuesday, the band premiered a music video for a track called “A Death In The Family,” which features some aggressive riffs and that classic Sum 41 sound that put the band on the map back nearly two decades ago. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0AbXHYqDkg This is the second song released so far from the album, following debut single…
