They will be showcasing new songs from the upcoming LP (FYI, Its amazing!), as well tunes from their now classic and critically acclaimed debut, Transparent Things.

John Mayer – Where The Light Is: Live In Los Angeles (CD)

John Mayer has slowly grown on me in the years since debuting on radio stations all across the country. “Say” was the track that really clinched that, being a perfect blend of soulful rock and honest vocals. Now, “Where The Light Is” gives me an idea of the live allure that Mayer has, placing listeners in three different positions – seeing Mayer acoustically-based, as a trio, or as a full band. The 27 tracks on this CD act as a greatest hits and more, placing “Waiting On The World To Change”, “Neon”, “Who Did You Think I Was”, and “Gravity” among lesser-known (but still solid tracks) like “Vultures”, “Come When I Call”, and “I’m Going To Find Another You”.

Lenka (Decoder Ring) Releases S/T Solo Debut 9/23

Lenka, former vocalist for the critically-acclaimed Australian electronic/ambient band Decoder Ring, will release her self-titled solo debut on Epic Records on September 23rd. Lead single “The Show” goes to radio on July 29th. In characteristic Lenka fashion, the song takes a dour premise – that life is a show, and sometimes a pretty bad one – and delivers it with such aplomb that one can’t help but grin as it erupts into a bold, brassy closing refrain of “I want my money back!” “I decided I should just get all my friends to come in and be like the drunken tavern chorus,” explains Lenka. “Australian folk singer Missy Higgins joined in on the bit.” Continue reading “Lenka (Decoder Ring) Releases S/T Solo Debut 9/23”
