Weir recently released Blue Mountain, his first full batch of solo songwriting in over 30 years. The album itself paints a beautiful picture of cowboy living, but the music truly comes to life witnessing Weir with a guitar in hand.At times Weir would play by himself, at others he would perform with his newly-arranged ensemble that includes Steve Kimock, Bryan Devendorf, Scott Devendorf, Jon Shaw and Josh Kaufman. While the show focused on the music of Blue Mountain, there were plenty of treats for Weir’s longtime fans. He even opened the show with a cover of Bob Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” and included “Big River,” “Friend of the Devil,” “Bird Song,” “Cassidy,” “Ship Of Fools,” “Standing On The Moon” and “Going Down The Road Feelin’ Bad” throughout the performance.

BIG Something Shares “Tumbleweed”, The Debut Single From Their New Album [Premiere]

first_imgIt’s been nothing but an upward trajectory for BIG Something, the six piece rockers based out of North Carolina. The band continues to make a name for themselves with high energy performances, uniquely crafted setlists, and sensational songwriting abilities, fusing influences of rock, funk, jazz and more for a sound wholly their own. As the band continues to take the scene by storm, fans were recently treated to the good news that BIG Something would be releasing a new album, Tumbleweed, in early 2017.Due out February 24th, the new album will be the fourth release from this exciting six-piece group. The album itself takes on a darker tone than the band’s previous works, as singer Nick MacDaniels mentions in his discussion of the new release. “Tumbleweed is a post apocalyptic desert trip. It’s a little darker and heavier in tone and subject matter than our previous albums, but there are also a few bright spots and upbeat moments too. With all eight tracks having been ‘road tested’ for the past couple years, it’s a really nice snapshot of our sound and catalogue.”To get fans excited about the new release, BIG Something has offered Live For Live Music the first taste! We’re delighted to premiere the album’s title track “Tumbleweed,” which you can stream in the player below.“‘Tumbleweed’ is the album’s title track and inspiration for the cover art,” says MacDaniels. “The name tumbleweed refers to the main character of the song who is fumbling aimlessly through a post-apocalyptic desert wasteland hallucinating on peyote. He’s telling himself to just keep moving in order to survive.” The band’s drummer Ben Vinograd adds, “I love this song because it showcases the dynamic all the players in our band can bring to the table. From the opening line on, everyone has a chance to shine.”The whole band has a chance to shine on Tumbleweed, including Ben Vinograd (drums), Doug Marshall (bass), Josh Kagel (keys, trumpet), Casey Cranford (saxophone, EWI), Jesse Henlsey (lead guitar), and Nick MacDaniels (vocals, guitar). Recorded at the beloved Echo Mountain Asheville studios with Grammy-nominated producer John Custer, we can’t wait for the new album to be released!BIG Something’s new album Tumbleweed is due out on February 24th, 2017, and you can pre-order the disc here.

These are two of the best musicians in the entire live and electronic music scene, and they have pushed the envelope to evolve the way people perceive what is possible to accomplish musically.”Adds Deitch, “Marc and Aron went from playing the Wetlands in the 90s, to curating one of the biggest and coolest festivals in the world, Camp Bisco! They have always had one foot in the electronic sound, and one foot in the jam!”Merging together the worlds of electronic, hip-hop, psychedelic grooves and heavy jams,  [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits is certainly not to be missed!5/18- Syracuse, NY Westcott Theater (tickets)5/19- Brooklyn, NY Brooklyn Bowl (tickets)5/20 – Washington, DC – Gypsy Sallys (tickets)last_img
