3. Medicine (CD) ~ Drew Holcomb & Neighbors
For Nashville based, Memphis born Drew Holcomb, "music is medicine" and it seems only fitting that along with his band The Neighbors - wife Ellie (vocals, guitar), Nathan Dugger (guitar, keys) and Rick Brinsfield (bass) - the group celebrates a decade long career with the release of their 2014 full-length studio album MEDICINE via his own imprint Magnolia Music. Recorded over eight days at Joe Pisapia's Middletree Studios in East Nashville, the twelve song album was co-produced by Pisapia (Ben Folds, KD Lang, Guster, Josh Rouse) and the band and tackles issues of everyday life including loyalty, hardship, marriage, friendship, alienation and faith.
4. Swing Of Death (CD) ~ Dracula
Norwegian rock stars, singer Jorn Lande and guitarist Trond Holter (aka Teeny of WIG WAM), have created a new rock opera/concept album about the life of Count Vlad the III, Prince of Wallachia, widely known as Vlad, The Impaler or by his patronymic name Vlad Dracul(a). The whole story explores the inner struggle inside the multifaceted and engorging character that this mysterious 15th century personality was, while also taking into account some of the metaphysical aspects that passed into literature, forming the whole basis of the vampire mythos. And of course, the story is backed by an astounding hard rock/heavy metal sound!
