Smashing Pumpkins’ William Patrick Corgan (as he wishes to be called now) began his solo acoustic tour with two shows at Brooklyn’s Murmrr Theatre over the weekend. Both nights featured two sets: first playing new solo album Ogilala as well as a cover of “If I Were a Carpenter”; and then returning for a second, career-spanning set heavy on Smashing Pumpkins songs (including deep cuts and rarities), plus a few Zwan songs as well as some more covers…

Scranton’s Kiley Lotz, a.k.a. Petal, has some new tunes coming our way. On September 15th, she’ll be releasing a 7″ titled Comfort via Run for Cover Records. But even before then, we get to hear one third of the record right this very moment, with Petal’s cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Springs” located below.

Petal reworks the Fleetwood Mac Rumours outtake into a stripped and beautiful, bare-bones rendition of the song, as the cover features just Lotz at her piano. These two elements are more than enough though, as Lotz’ pain feels tangible ...

Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie: Lindsey Buckingham/ Christine McVie

The first ever collaboration between Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie (beyond the many hits and wonderful music they have delivered in the Fleetwood Mac cannon) is creatively called Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie.

“Sleeping Around the Corner” opens with Buckingham on lead vocals and a high poppy beat (this tune, in another incarnation, appears as a bonus track on his 2011 solo album, Seeds We Sow). “Feel About You” follows with its heavy metallic percussion (there’s lots of drum programming sounds throughout) and McVie leading the vocals.

Good Cover Version: London Grammar Does Fleetwood Mac

Good Cover Version: London Grammar Does Fleetwood Mac

Pulp gave the world the song “Bad Cover Version.” But seeing as I’m a sonic optimist, I’m of the belief that there’s more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

I stumbled upon this one just by chance, and I’m quite glad I did. London Grammar‘s interpretation of the Fleetwood Mac classic “Dreams” is just gorgeous. The powerhouse vocals don’t have that mystical spriteliness of Stevie Nicks, but still cut to the emotional quick. A wonderfully tender, bittersweet rendition ...

When a band goes dormant for 13 years, it’s not uncommon for an eventual return to involve a recreation of their sound. Luna, the NYC-based guitar crew, took a bit of a different approach to their comeback — they’re recreating the sound of other acts. In the fall, Luna will release an LP of covers entitled A Sentimental Education, along with a six-song EP of original instrumentals called A Place Of Greater Safety. Both are due out on September 22 via Double Feature.

Debuted Wednesday was the first of ...

Tenor Saxophonist Tom Tallitsch Puts Out His Best, Most Darkly Intense Album

Source: New York Music Daily

Tom Tallitsch is one of the one of the major composers in jazz right now and a dynamic force on the tenor sax as well. As a radio host, he’s also advocated for under-the-radar artists from the New York jazz scene. His latest, excellent album Gratitude is streaming at Posi-Tone Records; he’s leading a quartet this Saturday night, May 6 at Minton’s, with sets at 7 and 9:30 PM; there’s no cover, just a two-item minimum at the bar.

This is a very emotionally charged record; the unifying theme is sad departures and welcome arrivals. The opening track, Terrain, is ...
