This piece originally ran for a previous birthday celebration on behalf of Sir Paul McCartney, so here it is again for his 77th … Back in 1967, the Beatles wondered what life would be like “When I’m 64” — and now, that once-distant birthday is a dozen years in the past for Sir Paul McCartney, who celebrates his 77th birthday today. We don’t need to lay out the reasons why the man affectionately referred to as “Macca” by fans around the world is considered one of the greatest songwriters in history (as part of one of, if not the greatest,…

Here’s the message he revealed to fans on his Facebook page: I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer. It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on – but I’ve faced obstacles before.

Earlier this month, acclaimed indie three-piece Sleater-Kinney returned with a single called “Hurry On Home,” the lead track from the band’s new album due out later this year. On Friday, they premiered another song — and “The Future Is Here” features slick production and has a lyric video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MP_2p79Ems4 Like each pre-release song, the album was produced by St. Vincent — and so far, this collaboration sounds pretty great.

Southern California-based rock/reggae/hip-hop band Dirty Heads will release their seventh full-length album, Super Moon, on August 9. The band announced the record on Friday and premiered its title track — which vocalist Jared Watson says sounds like, “a 70’s sci-fi kung fu Western car chase soundtrack. It gives you a look into the sonics, tone, and creative narrative of this album. It was all recorded live in the same room to tape in Studio A in the old RCA building in Nashville, Tennessee, where legends like Johnny Cash and Elvis recorded a lot of their work.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-_CGYCUrcA As a refresher,…

311 guitarist Tim Mahoney doesn’t try to hide his affinity for the Grateful Dead. “I’m just such a Deadhead,” he exclaimed in a 2017 interview with Rock Cellar, and listening to his riffs over the years with 311, you can hear the influence. The same goes for “What The?!,” a new song premiered on Friday from the alt/rock band’s upcoming album, Voyagerr, which will be out on July 12. Featuring steady vocals from both Doug “SA” Martinez and Nick Hexum, the song is driven by Mahoney’s funky guitar, from loopy chords to shredding and solo, for good measure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUGxyD-NOGo This…

Madonna returned on Friday with her new studio album, Madame X, which was previewed in recent weeks with the track “Medellin,” featuring Colombian singer Maluma. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8PtBzdiZ3g That dance-floor ready tune opens Madame X, an album of larger-than-life compositions with top-notch production, electronic flourishes and an overall sense of … well, weirdness. It’s a wild listen. Per the press release, the iconic singer was inspired by a number of things in conceiving with this new record: Influenced creatively by living in Lisbon, Portugal over the past several years, Madame X is a collection of 15 new songs that celebrate Madonna’s career-long affair with…

Ever since forging out on his own in 2011 with his solo debut album, Noel Gallagher has had a keen interest in creating some danceable, rhythmic music. After that album cycle, he started a project called Amorphous Androgynous that promised to tackle experimental/electronic music, but it never materialized. Today, he hit that sweet spot with the release of Black Star Dancing, a new EP from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds that features both Gallagher’s signature sound and some new approaches, including dabbling in more experimental production flourishes. It was previewed in recent weeks with its trippy title track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LKSW_RK8Ss The…

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…
