Dylan Cover #446 Emmett Sherlock "Million Miles"

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Emmett Sherlock playing "Million Miles"


Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
From the barren blues of Time Out Of Mind comes "Million Miles". While not a standout on that album, the song was prophetic, hinting at the fantastic twelve bar blues variations that would dominate his next two releases. When first heard though it doesn't jump out, just feels like yet ANOTHER solid track from the bard.

Cover:


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We have not heard of Emmett Sherlock before, but he is a singer songwriter from Ontario, Canada who writes songs and does arraignments of covers of artists like Dylan, Zevon and Waits. 

Thoughts on Cover:
A raw simple blues, stripped down acoustic offering, that is very powerful in it's sparse arraignment and fierce singing from Sherlock.

Album Review: Mastodon - Medium Rarities

  Hey all, got a new review up @glidemag which you can read Right C'here!!

It is of Mastodon newest release Medium Rarities.

This is a catch all record that rounds up a few live tracks, soundtrack offerings, instrumentals, covers and one new offering. We have seen Mastodon live, reviewed them in the past an enjoyed their albums, this is more of the same while an album of new material is apparently coming soon from the metal titans.  

Support the band, buy the album, read the review and peep some video below:

Dylan Cover #445 Linda Ronstadt "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues"

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Linda Ronstadt playing "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues"


Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
An energetic romp that has been covered by everyone, this tune is a great swirl through Dylan's freaky mind. It was a punch and a whirlwind journey through Juarez, Mexico around Easter time...Maybe. There are lots of literary hints dropped, as well as a mischievous smile throughout. One of the first Dylan tunes we gravitated towards and with good reason, it is still one of our favorites. 
Cover:

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Have never been a big fan of Linda Ronstadt at RtBE.

Thoughts on Cover:
A slow moving number soft rock approach that takes a bit of the bite out of the track, but allows Ronstadt to use her vocals to the best of her abilities. Our favorite covers of this song are pumped up and more raucous but this is a solid different way to cover the famous Dylan number.

RtBE have long been a fan of Booker's work, we reviewed his studio records, caught him live and rated his debut record high on our 2010's wrap up. Booker has started a family (congrats), wrote a new song dealing with anxiety and moved to Australia so check out his new bandcamp page.



Songhoy Blues Release New Single "Barre", Full Album Coming In October

New Bruce Springsteen Song, Full Album Out in October

A surprising announcement as Bruce Springsteen is a releasing a new song today "Letter To You" and will be releasing a new album by the same name in October.

Last year we talked about Bruce and company during our Masters Series and while we haven't liked his recent efforts as much as his classics, it is always nice to see creative artists come out with new material.  Here is the title track:

New Album From Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Goblin Alert, Produced By Greg Cartwright

The dance rock freakers Quintron & Miss Pussycat are releasing a new album Goblin Alert out October 16th.

The record will be released on Goner Records and produced by Greg Cartwright. You can pre-order now.

We dig Quintron & Miss Pussycat having caught them live a few drunken late nights down in NOLA. This should be a fun weird one as the duo is not just using a drum machine this time out, they are experimenting with a full band.  

Here is the first song, "Buc cee's Got A Problem" and an album teaser:

Album Review: All Them Witches - Nothing as the Ideal

 Hey all, got a new review up @glidemag which you can read Right C'here!!

It is of All Them Witches newest release Nothing as the Ideal.

This is definitely a let down from their previous album ATW. Interestingly our editor took out some of the harsher sentences as we were more critical in our original draft. Nothing as the Ideal is a dull record, in the vein of the worst traits of Tool. Not RtBEs cup of tea, however...

Support the artist, read the review, buy the album, stream on bandcamp and peep some video below:

Dylan Cover #444 Alternate Infidels "Union Sundown"

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Alternate Infidels playing "Union Sundown"


Thoughts on Original:
From what has become an annual tradition here and here:
Wanted to pick this one for Labor Day as it is Dylan's take on the lack of US manufacturing jobs as well as the increasing flux of capitalism in society and the death of unions.  The idea of greed taking over is nothing new, but this song seems to come from an impulsive Dylan (a lot do) and shows up on Infidel's of which Dylan has commented something along the lines of "Those songs stuck around too long".  Ideas seem to be a bit jumbled on this disk, but not on this tune, his lament at no good paying job for American workers is clear, but he isn't passing the buck.  It is all of HIS products that are foreign made, this isn't a plea for change as a younger Dylan might have done; it is a simple statement of fact...and a sad one at that.  Having grown up in a extremely pro-Labor house hold I just wanted to point this tune out and the fact that Dylan wrote it almost 30 years ago, and things have only gotten worse... Happy Labor Day....
Cover:


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
I am not sure who Alternate Infidels are, but they cover the only Dylan songs that matter...this one was performed in Detroit City, with the help of the Mexico Band Los Gringos. Guitars : Dave Bass and Drums arrangements : Rémi Drums : Gavin & El Chupo TRULY Made in the U.S.A.

Thoughts on Cover:
It is a heavy take on the tune with a splash of metallic guitars and revved up backing that works well on this song.  

Enjoy your Labor Day!
