New Music From Byron Isaacs, Brother Dege And The Chandler Travis Three-O



Next up is the latest full-length release from Brother Dege titled "Farmer's Almanac." Brother Dege may be best known for appearing on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained." His latest album features 11-tracks that begin and end with the soundtrack-ready, western feel of "Partial To The Bitters." In between those songs, Brother Dege combines his Cajun and country roots on the acoustic strumming "Country Come To Town" and the swampy blues of "The Shakedown." This album only proves the statement that Brother Dege is one of the best-kept secrets in Louisiana. He quickens up the pace for the storied lyrics of "The Ballad Of Ingo Swann," before closing out his new album with the rock ballad of "Laredo" and the country vibe of "No Man A Slave." To find out more about Brother Dege and his latest release "Farmer's Almanac," please visit psyouthern.com.

Then we come upon the sophomore release from the Chandler Travis Three-O titled "Backward, Crooked From The Sunset." While Travis is no stranger to the music industry, this is only his second album with the Three-O's, as they released their debut album back in 2011. This new release features a dozen tracks, beginning with the addictive chorus of the title song as the band have fun with their music. The exciting energy continues with the jazz like tones of "Happy Channy Oberek" and the nostalgic guitar strumming of "All The Little Things." The Chandler Travis Three-O deliver the English-sixties sounding "Salad Days," which sound straight from a long, lost album from The Kinks. They wrap up their new album with the tongue-in-check fun of "Mayor Of Drunktown" and the acoustic sing-along of "Not In Service."

The Beach Boys Tune Up Some Of Their Biggest Hits With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra



The new compilation titled "The Beach Boys With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra" will see a worldwide release on June 8 through Capitol/UMe. It features 17-tracks that take existing classics from The Beach Boys and adds brand-new musical arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This would not be an easy task, since many of this songs are so well known by their fans that the slightest addition or adjustment may not work, but you could not be more wrong.

A short instrumental piece "California Suite" leads into "California Girls" as the addition of horns and strings only enhances the overall song. Many of the band's earlier hits are taken up a notch as songs like "Fun, Fun, Fun" and  "God Only Knows" get filled with the lush arrangements that gives The Beach Boys music a cleaner, more modern sound. The beautiful harmonies of "In My Room" and "The Warmth Of The Sun" sound more complete, as if the group originally recorded these songs with the intention of using an orchestra. There are also a few songs on this new compilation that did not need the addition of strings and horns, as "Kokomo" sounds less tropical and "Good Vibrations" was already perfect and now seems overdone.

This compilation does showcases what amazing singers and songwriters The Beach Boys were, in order for there music to be given the orchestral treatment and still have and outstanding and timeless quality. To find out more about the newly released "The Beach Boys With The Philharmonic Orchestra," please visit thebeachboys.com.

He keeps the energy flowing through "The Remedy (Feel Alright)" and "Runaway" as the music is very addictive, before slowing down for the R&B-type ballad "Castles In The Sky." Xavier Toscano finishes up his latest album with the dub-step beats of "Watch Out, It's On" and the smooth, mainstream pop appeal of "Made It Look Easy."

Last, but not least, we arrive at the latest single from New York City rockers, Moe Green's Eye.
