"The way we approached Tarantula Heart was different than any other Melvins' album," Buzz Osborne explained upon the album announcement.

This isn't a studio approach we've ever taken. Usually we have the songs written BEFORE we start recording!" (continue)

Once the decision was made - "find more tickets" - the people promoting Kenny Chesney's Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour went into overdrive, opening up seats, creating more space and making every seat available. Three times. But with the Tampa opener almost as much a tradition as the Foxborough, Mass. Gillette Stadium final weekend, the people at Raymond James Stadium know Kenny on a personal level.

When ticket volume got low, the Raymond James team got creative. They gave the fire marshall a call, asking if it would be possible - for the first time ever - to sell standing room only seats around the pirate ship that graces their North End Zone Plaza. With a long history in Tampa, as well as a will to feed the fans who want to be part of "opening day," logistics were discussed, worked through and put into play. (continue)

Austin roots rocker JM Stevens just released his new album "Nowhere To Land" and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about one of the tracks. He selected "After The Storm". Here is the story:

It was back in 2021 in Austin during the massive Texas ice storm that broke all the records and everything was feeling pretty apocalyptic. Not only was most of the city without power for over a week and frozen solid, but we were also in the middle of a pandemic and lockdowns..crazy times - almost feels like a dream now. The unpredictability of it all had me reeling and I was finding solace in these gentle fingerpicking type riffs whenever I picked up the guitar. One of them I kept coming back to and I started hearing a melody floating around over it. As the weather finally started to ease up I was out on a run in Rosewood Park in East Austin, which sometimes for me can get the ol' hamster wheel upstairs spinning. The words to this tune just started coming to me over that melody I'd been jamming - like almost fully formed for a big chunk of it - from just taking in the little things that were going on around me. I didn't have any way to write 'em down and I knew I'd forget, so I headed back home pronto while frantically mouthing the bits over and over. Barging into the house like a madman I told my daughter to "write this down immediately," just like some a**hole boss on a movie, while I spewed out what I could. It's a real nice thing when a song falls out quick like that, less work, which is a good thing. I played it live a few times and more of the words came into focus. (continue)
