Out of strange times comes great music, right? " Nina Cried Power " , a special collaboration between Hozier and Mavis Staples , is a tribute to Nina Simone, Woody Guthrie, James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, Bob Dylan and others who used their music as an instrument of social change.

David Bowie Would Approve

David. Bowie. You carry a great responsibility when you decided to cover David Bowie . I gotta tell you, Bones did a killer job keeping " I'm Afraid Of Americans " - Bowie's xxxx collaboration with Trent Reznor - true to the original while leaving their own mark on it. It's one of my fave tunes on...

Elvis Costello digs back, Death Cab For Cutie looks forward.

Elvis Costello , who's currently on the mend after cancer surgery, shared the studio recording of "Unwanted Number" - a song written in the 80's and performed live over the years. We've been grooving to Death Cab For Cutie's new "Gold Rush" for a few weeks. I really like "I Dreamt We Spoke Again...

Preview Pitchfork, Lollapalooza, and new Tom Petty.

Blues Traveler has new music but it's only frontman John Popper who's heading out on tour this fall. He stops by City Winery Chicago for on September 18. I heard...

"New music from Tom Petty." Something Ryan Arnold never thought he'd ever say again.

I'm not often at a loss for words. When I read more than a dozen Tom Petty songs had been unearthed and plans are in the works for a massive box set all I could muster was "I'll be damned." Pre-order the 60 song (including more than a dozen previously unreleased songs recorded in the early 1980's)...
