This live performance is now available, offering fans the opportunity to witness "Play" being brought to life on that unforgettable evening.

Originally composed and performed entirely by Grohl on every instrument, "Play" is an expansive journey through Grohl's musical prowess and creativity.

Delivering a blend of visual and auditory artistry, this one and only live version of "Play" is a key highlight of 'The Benefit Concert Volume 20'. (continue)

Gonzalez Smith - the new musical project from singer-songwriter (and Drive-By Truckers multi-instrumentalist) Jay Gonzalez and cult comedy writer Pete Smith (Space Ghost Coast To Coast, The Brak Show) - have released their debut record, Roll Up A Song today. Roll Up A Song arrives via Madrid, Spain's Bobo Integral in conjunction with Gonzalez's own Middlebrow Records. To celebrate the release, the band has shared a new official music video for the song "Gelato," streaming now.

"'Gelato' is possibly the prettiest piece of piano pop you'll peep with your precious earballs," says xxx. "Jay Gonzalez and Pete Smith are like a modern-day Bacharach/David, if Burt spent his nights tearing it up with one of the best live rock bands in America, and Hal was a writer for Space Ghost Coast to Coast and The Brak Show. Their debut album as Gonzalez Smith, Roll Up a Song, is a seamless fusion of power pop, piano ballads, bossa nova, and pure spun sugar confection. Jay brings the same multi-instrumental compositional skills found on his first three solo albums, and Pete pens lyrics by turns honest, romantic, arch, and comedic, sometimes in the same verse. The results are so stellar, that it's a shock to discover that the Drive-By Truckers guitarist/keyboardist and the Adult Swim comedy scribe haven't been writing together for decades. Roll Up a Song" transcends eras and genres. It's a harmonious journey, uniting melodies and lyrics into a timeless masterpiece." (continue)
