Hard rock fans! If you've been craving a grinding, blues soaked, heavy groove, then Tom Keifer #Keiferband's "Untitled," just might be the fix.

Some bands break through immediately with a hit single or record. Daryl Hall and John Oates didn't. And the duo was all the better for it.

"It sort of had a funny, slow burn success. It didn't have any big singles when the album was actually released, even though 'She's Gone' was on 'Abandoned Luncheonette,' and people talk about that album still as being what they consider as one of our best albums," Hall said. (continue)
Pierce Alexander just released a brand new single called "Stain", and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the track featuring Coco Camp. Here is the story:
"Stain" is the first song from a project I've been recording with my friend Corey Campbell (Coco Camp). I actually wrote Stain back in 2020, but the song has had an interesting recording journey since then. After I recorded the original demo, it ended up being one of the leading contenders for the final set of songs to appear on my debut album, "The Minutehand". But I couldn't help but feel it needed more time so that I could really hone the arrangement a bit more. I'd written about 50 songs before choosing the final 10, and there were actually several songs where that didn't make the cut. Fast forward a year, and I ended up making recording plans with my friend Corey (Coco Camp). We ended up deciding to re-record Stain and take a new approach. During that time, I finally felt like we'd figured out how we wanted it to sound. (continue)
