During the chat he said, "Well, you know, it took me 40 years 'cause, Motley was priority... and now that I'm retired, I'm just me, you know.

Neil Young has released "DUME", a new limited-edition all analog vinyl pressing of 16 songs originally collected for Neil Young's Archives Vol. II release in Fall of 2020.

The recordings-some part of the historic ZUMA album sessions by Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and others previously unreleased-are a detailed look at one of the most exciting periods in Neil's rock & roll life. DUME captures the live-wire spark of Young's music during those years, and this full-bore attack is somewhat of a turning point for Young and the band. The mid-70's were an era when new high-water marks were appearing everywhere. Ampage and attack were being pursued, and the songs on DUME are prime examples of what lay ahead. The 1960s had opened the floodgates on solo artists and groups using the freedom they had earned when they took control of their own musical destinies. The '70s had begun on a high note and kept growing in creative leaps and bounds. Artists had found a way to move in their own direction and follow a path that opened before them. (continue)

Alberta rock trio Royal Tusk released their highly anticipated album, Altruistic via MNRK Music Group with an accompanying documentary out now, Do No Wrong: The Making of Altruistic.

Royal Tusk bottle raw feelings of alienation into a clarion call on the most recent single, "Hated." The soaring melody resounds with undeniable honesty underlined by fret-burning lead licks.. "It was written from the point-of-view of someone who is labeled unredeemable," frontman Daniel Carriere said. "It doesn't campaign for this person's innocence, but it poses a question. If our world can't believe an individual can change, it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. Change is a running theme for this body of work. I think people can and do change. It's the hardest thing, yet it's possible." (continue)

Gary Clark Jr. shares a music video for his new song "Alone Together" featuring jazz trumpeter Keyon Harrold. The track serves as another taste of Clark's highly anticipated upcoming album JPEG RAW, set for release on March 22 via Warner Records.

This new body of work signals a brave new world for Clark's ever-expanding creative palette. The new music is dense and adventurous with a more cohesive synthesis of his eclectic musical universe. His samples, Thelonious Monk and Sonny Boy Williamson, decorate flourishes of African, World Music, and even Jazz while merging with rock, R&B, hip-hop and blues; familiar areas he has ventured before, this time with more unity forging a fresh new style. Clark's lyrics are pointed, deeply personal, outspoken and socially conscious with occasional forays into rap and spoken word from Clark himself. The sonics are immersive, verging on modern groove-oriented psychedelia with hip-hop driven beats in verses giving way to anthemic choruses, rich with power-chording and wide fuzz riffage.
