Vintage Cafe: Steve Winwood on World Cafe, Monday @ 8pm on WCBE

Tonight, enjoy this encore presentation from 2003.
Newly Unearthed Full-hour Session With Steve Winwood From 2003. You're Welcome. Steve Winwood is a real musician who got side-tracked in the 80's into being a pop-star with a number of very smooth synth-laden hit albums. They were good, but it seems that Winwood is most comfortable behind his Hammond B-3 console jamming with his fellow musicians.

Originally published on Tue March 17, 2015 10:41 am

There are four official members of Houndmouth: guitarist Matt Myers, keyboardist Katie Toupin, drummer Shane Cody and bassist Zak Appleby, all of whom also pitch in with the singing and songwriting. But far more people than that contribute to their second album, Little Neon Limelight. Only artful alt-roots producer Dave Cobb, recording engineer Vance Powell and mastering engineer Pete Lyman pop up in the credits, though.

Review: Matthew E. White, 'Fresh Blood'

Matthew E. White's new album, Fresh Blood, comes out March 10.

Originally published on Tue March 17, 2015 10:39 am

It'd be inexact to describe Matthew E. White as a reluctant frontman, but up until the advent of Fresh Blood, his excellent second album, "rock star" wasn't exactly how he saw his future in music. His plan was more quixotic than becoming a successful singer-songwriter: He was starting a label, called Spacebomb Records, in the manner of Motown or Stax or Studio One, with a band and production team in-house. (Literally — his drummer is his roommate and their attic is Spacebomb Studios.)

Review: 'Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith'

Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith comes out March 17.

Originally published on Tue March 17, 2015 10:42 am

Working as a music journalist means that some days you get to tell people, in breathless prose, about an incredible new record you've discovered. On other days, you have to tell people that an artist you've followed and respected for years is no longer living. That part is never any fun. Listening to the hushed, elegantly spare Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith, I found myself transported back to the period right after Smith died, of apparently self-inflicted stab wounds, in 2003.
