PRESERVATION HALL BENEFIT ALBUM COMMEMORATES THE 5TH ANNIVERSARY OF HURRICANE KATRINA

Gulf Aid Remix Project Allows Fans to Remix the Track “It Ain’t My Fault”

It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since the Hurricane Katrina tragedy. On August 29th, 2005, the livelihood of hundreds of thousands of people was affected dramatically. It was the costliest natural disaster in American history and resulted in the loss of almost 2,000 lives. Over 80% of the city of New Orleans was flooded, and even after all this time, a significant number of the city’s residents remain displaced. This tragedy was recently compounded by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, which affected the Louisiana coastline in addition to extending through the Southeast into Florida.

PRESERVATION: An Album to Benefit Preservation Hall and The Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program was conceived by independent music distributor RED along with the MRI label group. With the proceeds from this album, RED and MRI have helped to restore and preserve the Preservation Hall venue in New Orleans, and have made it possible for the Preservation Hall Music Outreach Program to continue. The album is a warm and joyous celebration of New Orleans music, featuring over 20 of music’s most exciting artists, all performing with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The artists appearing on this project are Andrew Bird, Terence Blanchard, Pete Seeger, Dr. John, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Brandi Carlile, Cory Chisel, Ani DiFranco, Steve Earle, Merle Haggard, Richie Havens, Jason Isbell, Jim James, Angelique Kidjo, Amy LaVere, Anita Briem, Del McCoury, Buddy Miller, Paolo Nutini and Tom Waits.

Young the Giant opening for Marina & The Diamonds! Check them out!

“One of the 10 new bands you need to know in 2010.”- Aaron Axelson, Live 105

“This might be your new favorite band.”- Kat Corbett, KROQ


“…their songs brim with grown-up arrangements and grand ambitions. You’re likely to find stinging guitar work and the now-fashionable smorgasboard of beats in the debut album…Young the Giant’s calling card, though, is the arena-sized voice of singer Gadhia.” – Buzzbands LA

California five-piece Young The Giant will digitally release their self-titled debut album on October 26, 2010, via Roadrunner Records. A physical release is set for early 2011. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, The Shins, My Morning Jacket), mixed by Michael Brauer (Coldplay, My Morning Jacket) and recorded at Los Angeles’ Sunset Sound Studios and Kingsize Studio, the 12-song album is an arresting collection of bright, melodic rock that ushers in Young the Giant as a fresh and vital presence. After AOL Spinner’s recent premiere of rousing lead single “My Body,” which features an infectious chorus swinging with intensity and a hard-hitting drum pattern, the song has been streamed 30,000 times and leapt to #1 on Hype Machine in just two days. With early support from KROQ and LIVE 105 and a newly announced run of September support dates with Marina and The DiamondsYoung The Giant is bound for an exciting future.

RAY LAMONTAGNE AND THE PARIAH DOGS’ GOD WILLIN’ & THE CREEK DON’T RISE DEBUTS AT #3 ON THE BILLBOARD TOP 200

(New York, New York) Ray LaMontagne’s 4th studio album God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise debuts at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Digital album chart selling over 64,000 units.  This marks a personal sales best for Ray and ties his debut chart position at #3 for Gossip in the Grain.  The first single off the album, “Beg, Steal or Borrow” is currently #2 on the AAA chart which is also a career high for Ray.

Entirely self produced (for the first time) God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise was recorded in two weeks at LaMontagne’s home in the woods of western Massachusetts.  The newly restored historic home served as a homemade recording studio for Ray and his fellow musicians.

Critics are raving over the newest addition to LaMontagne’s canon. The New York Daily News’ 5 star review says the album is, “one of the stand out releases of the year” and says LaMontagne “approaches Van Morrison’s greatest leaps into the mystic.”  Associated Press calls it, “one of the year’s best” while the Boston Globe calls it “an absolute gem.” Both the Los Angeles Times and USA Today give the album 3 1/2 stars (out of 4).

Fourth studio album from celebrated country group garners critical acclaim

Nashville, Tenn. — (August 24, 2010) — Platinum-selling country group Little Big Town is celebrating the release of their new album, The Reason Why (Capitol Records Nashville), which has been met with immediate praise from critics and fans alike. Marking the group’s fourth studio album, The Miami Herald’s Howard Cohen calls the new project “country’s album of the year for 2010,” and Michael McCall of the Associated Press says the project warrants the group to “regain their swagger as one of country’s most distinctive acts.” Brian Mansfield of USA Today calls them “a combination that’s impossible to resist,” noting their rustic groove and ‘70s pop-rock harmonies as stand-out attributes.
