Ten Bands One Cause 2019
Ten Bands re-issue their albums on limited edition pink vinyl, all for one cause. This is the 5th year for the initiative that has raised over $200,000 for Gilda’s Club NYC, an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers. It is named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from cancer at the age of 43 in 1989.
This year’s limited pink vinyl are from John Prine, Third Eye Blind, Spiritualized, Sunn O))), Amanda Palmer, Courtney Marie Andrews, Mark Lanegan, Saves The Day, Colter Wall and Lacuna Coil. The releases will be available for purchase at retailers nationwide wherever vinyl is sold, and proceeds will sponsor Gilda’s Club NYC.
Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, this newest offering by Colter Wall was recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A. Wall's sound is comprised of resonate and raw baritone vocals, folk and bluegrass style guitar and banjo picking, steady kick-drum stomping, and visually provoking, story telling lyrics.
'May Your Kindness Remain' is Courtney Marie Andrews statement piece. It is the follow up album to Courtney Marie Andrews critically acclaimed 2016 album Honest Life, which made Rolling Stone's list of the "Top 40 Country Albums of 2016" and was The Bluegrass Situation's Album of the Year. She even appeared on an episode of 'Later…with Jools Holland.” She has toured with The Head & The Heart, Big Thief, Hamilton Leithauser and more.
From the opening bars it's clear that Mark Lanegan's outstanding 11th solo album, Somebody's Knocking, was made by someone deeply obsessed with how music - with all its primal, spiritual healing power - truly penetrates the soul. As a result, there's joy in the music, as if created from a perfect set of inspirations smashed and grabbed from God's own record shop. From the Raw Power-esque garage metal grind of ''Disbelief Suspension'' to ''Letter Never Sent's'' rocket-powered take on Love-era kaleidoscope-psych, through the pensive subterranean murk of ''Dark Disco Jag'' and on to ''Playing Nero's'' sun-bleached riff on Joy Division's ''Atmosphere'', there's the glee of infatuation running deep in the tracks. This album is less the tale of a brooding, crepuscular rock'n'roll veteran and more that of someone consumed by a lifelong love of words and sound fused together.
