Trivium - “Through Blood And Dirt And Bone” (Vengeance Falls, 2013)

I really haven’t kept up with Trivium since 2008’s Shogun, but I quite like this.

The Hold Steady performs live in the KEXP studio on July 18, 2014

Here’s a nice little acoustic set by everyone’s favorite talk-singing indie-alt band The Hold Steady, featuring one of Memphis’ favorite sons Steve Selvidge on guitar.

Schematic “Stand” Video Premiere

Schematic - “Stand” (Color (n.) Inside the Lines, 2013)

Spartan Records premiered the new “Stand” video from former Mae frontman Dave Elkins’ project Schematic today. Check it out.

And check out that Oak Ridge Boys t-shirt Dave is wearing.

Tesla - “Edison’s Medicine” (Psychotic Supper, 1991)

Somewhat cheesy video for a great Tesla tune highlighting the attention and accolades paid to Thomas Edison (among others) over the the band’s namesake, inventor, mechanical engineer, and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla. To lend further credence to the band’s claim that Tesla’s genius was often overlooked and that his inventions were “appropriated” by other scientists and inventors, I never once learned about Tesla in school, only discovering him on my own after purchasing the band’s debut album.

Music can be educational, kids.

Donnie Iris - “Ah! Leah!” (Back on the Streets, 1980)

Great song. Creepy video.

The Making of Grinder Blues

Grinder Blues is a blues-based power trio made up of King’s X’s dUg Pinnick on bass/vocals and roots rock brothers Jabo and Scot Bihlman on guitar/vocals and drums/vocals, respectively. The idea behind the band was to offer a fresh, updated take—or, to quote Jabo Bihlman, a “heavy, twisted take”—on 1950’s Chicago blues but to avoid all the clichés of the genre while keeping the music simple and fun. And according to dUg, to “rock out.”

Good grief, dUg must be one of the hardest working men in rock ‘n’ roll right now.

Pinnick Gales Pridgen - “Every Step of the Way” (PGP 2, 2014)

Latest blues/rock/funk jam from the supergroup of dUg Pinnick, Eric Gales, and Thomas Pridgen. A few thoughts:

  • I think I would have much preferred to see a video of a real live performance rather than a “performance” video, but you take what you can get.
  • I don’t think I’ll ever get used to watching Eric Gales play left-handed and upside-down.
  • Thomas Pridgen seems awfully restrained in this song.

Tesla - “So Divine…” (Simplicity, 2014)

Despite the guess-the-rhyme lyrics, the new Tesla track “So Divine…” is actually quite good, as is the entire Simplicity album. It’s worth a listen if you are even a moderate fan of Tesla’s music.

Mastodon - “High Road” (Once More ‘Round the Sun, 2014)

Um…yeah. Not sure what else to say.

Rush - “Tom Sawyer”

via merlin:

Man. I’m a sucker for footage of a band recording the actual song.

Me, too, Merlin. Me, too.

Martin Briley - “Salt In My Tears” (One Night with a Stranger, 1983)

This song popped up on shuffle during the commute into work today. Such a great pop song, and I love the simple, super-catchy guitar solo.
