  • It was fifty years ago today; that’s right, THE BEATLES’ epic, world-changing album, SGT. PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. And now the band has created four different 50th anniversary reissues!
    It was 50 years ago this June 1st when The Beatles' John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr astonished and delighted the world, ushering in the Summer of Love with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a groundbreaking masterwork that became popular music's most universally acclaimed album. To salute the occasion, The Beatles will release a suite of lavishly presented 'Sgt. Pepper' Anniversary Edition packages on May 26 (Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe). The album is newly mixed by Giles Martin and Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio and expanded with early takes from the studio sessions, including no fewer than 34 previously unreleased recordings.
  • Expansive postmodern blues-rock n’ drone masters ENDLESS BOOGIE has returned with the much-anticipated follow-up to 2015’s life-changing Nothing For The Water with VIBE KILLER,a (sort-of) concept album.
    Our story opens w/a jowly narrative enunciated by singer/guitarist Paul "Top Dollar" Major (as Aaron Burr) callin’ out all them sissy Dem-Rep blaggards, letting 'em know he's on his own path. Naturally what follows is some tasty sun zoom riffage a’tween TD 'n Jesper "The Governor" Eklow and the wily Dollar, backed solidly by the Marc Razo/Harry Druzd rhythm union. In fact, through the whole of this opus, Druzd effortlessly marshals through the sonic undertow while Razo rudders his bass like a brilliant pulse in a spasmodic vortex. Top Dollar, the aforementioned Herr Sween & The Governor gnash, morph, crystallize while the jams flow; it's 'Mirror Man' bum-rushin’ 'Pretties For You'. Before ya know it, we're at track 5 ('Back In '74') where the plot ostensibly takes us to a memory of Burr enterin’ college, but is surreptitiously more about the year Top Dollar gave up on Grand Funk in favor of Josefus. You're followin’ all of this, right?
