Album of the Month: Ryan Adams Live At Carnegie Hall


Ryan Adams returned to Carnegie Hall in New York in November 2014 for two shows, after last performing there in the winter of 2011. The 2014 shows were part of the ongoing tour for his self-titled album; unusually, these two gigs were solo affairs during a period in which Adams had been performing with his new electric band, the Shining, but they served to show Adams’ incredible versatility as a musician.

Album of the Month: My Morning Jacket – The Waterfall


My Morning Jacket’s The Waterfall, is out May 4th on ATO Records / Capitol Records. Recorded in Stinson Beach, CA the album is steeped in the spirit of where it was made.
