Jackyl Front Man and Co-Star of Full Throttle Saloon Expected to Make Fully Recover Atlanta, GA — Jesse James Dupree is recuperating at home following a motorcycle accident on Route 411 by the Georgia / Alabama state line. Dupree was struck by an automobile, suffering a broken left ankle and foot, fractured right arm, and significant bruising to his lower back, alongside a severe case of road rash. The
The Cover – If I went by the cover of this album I would never have heard The Veda Rays (well, if it weren’t for the fact that I must listen to them in order to review them). It’s boring, and the pea soup green coloring of it makes me nauseous. The Music – However, the music of The Veda Rays is far from nauseating. They have a great
Nobody sounds like Portishead. The progression of their albums has clearly established their uncompromising stance towards their future. Portishead play ATP followed by a U.S. tour which is the first time they’ve played live in the U.S. since 1998. While in New York City, playing 2 sold out nights at Hammerstein Ballroom, the band will perform live on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. This is the band’s first U.S.
The Cover – I was sucked in by the darkness of this cover. Very zombie-esque, bloody and nightmarish. You would think a cover like this would mean the music within was dark and edgy. Nope.

The Music – If the cover can be described as beautiful, then Morgan Bracy’s music can be described as nothing less than dreamy and fantastical. A fun folk and country music edge- Morgan Bracy has a knack for telling stories with her
The Cover – Fitting to the band’s name, this cover sports a dirty man, a trashy woman with her cleavage hanging out, and, of course, money. It’s all about the sleaze and the money, well, the cover is anyway. The Music – The Real Nasty have a kind of blues and rock mix, with some country and even a little oddity mixed in. Their sound is very clean, musically
The Cover – For some people it is the cover of an album that draws them in. The cover of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster’s album “IV” is very retro, and clever. Not a fan of the creepy, dirty band members on the cover, but it resembles an old record cover. It even comes complete with the faded look and worn circular pattern. The Music – Maylene and
After more than a quarter century into his career, Grammy nominated Chris Isaak has finally created the album he’s always wanted to make. Beyond the Sun, Isaak’s first Vanguard Records release out Oct. 18th —is truly a labor of love. As a child spinning his parents 45s in their Stockton, California home, this deeply committed artist has been obsessed with the glory days of Memphis’ Sun Studio and the
