What an amazing sound these two have created… that’s Elliot and Natalie Bergman of Wild Belle whom I was referring to. You can hear quite the combination of genres mixed together in this one song. Seems like they’d be great to see live, and I can only imagine that everyone’s off their seats, dancing away… Keep an eye open for more good music from Wild Belle, since they just signed a 3-album contract with Columbia Records.

After attending this year’s High Sierra Music Festival, I had met some folks (long time festival goers), who turned me on to what they referred to as “The best music festival of the year”, Hangtown Halloween. So you can imagine with little over a month away, and after just returning from Burning Man, I am overly excited to experience a weekend full of spectacular live music, dancing, and good people. This year Railroad Earth will be hosting the festival, while giving three performances throughout the weekend.
Besides looking forward to the entire festival blowing my mind, I can’t wait for a particular highlight, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and their tribute to the Beastie Boys… this should be quite the show!Tickets are still available, so grab them while you can (link below), check out the full lineup for 2012 and catch the video footage from last year’s Hangtown Halloween below. So grab a few costumes, your tent, and I’ll see you there!

Blak and Blue is dropping at the end of next month, 10/22, and should be pretty damn amazing, after all the hard work he’s been doing this year. He’s one of the greatest guitarists out there right now, and I recommend checking his other music out as soon as you have a chance.
Atoms for Peace is a project headed by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke who takes lead vocals, guitar, and programming with support from Nigel Godrich (production & programming), Joey Waronker (drums), Mauro Refosco (percussion) and Flea (bass). Listen to their new song “Default” below, and grab it on itunes, or in your local record store next month. Enjoy!
This is one music festival you’re not going to want to miss. It’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and it’s held in San Francisco, at Golden Gate Park, from October 5-7, and it’s freekin’ free! The lineup is incredible, and will feature many different genres of music, not only Bluegrass. The list below was just recently updated with the bands that will be playing at this years festival. So come October 5, grab a jacket, fill up your cooler, and head over to the greatest park in the bay…
