EvermotionGuster will release their first album in four years, Evermotion, fearlessly experimenting with new instruments and collaborations to create their most vibrant album yet. Produced by Shins keyboardist/Black Keys bassist Richard Swift, who has produced records for Damien Jurado, Foxygen and Stereolab, the new album bulldozes inhibitions, propelling the band to a harder-charging, more freewheeling sound.
The quartet of Ryan Miller, Adam Gardner, Brian Rosenworcel and Luke Reynolds recorded at Swift's Cottage Grove, OR studio in three whirlwind weeks - the fastest the band has ever finished an album. "We recorded with one drum microphone, used whole takes, didn't obsess over vocals or really edit things at all," said Rosenworcel. "It's a raw version of our band." Despite the stripped-down sessions, Guster's songs are packed with tight hooks, muscular guitar riffs, clanging percussion and surprisingly dark lyrics. The new album features adventurous turns on slide guitars, brassy trumpets and a glockenspiel, with sax and trombone accompaniment by Jon Natchez, whose stints with the War on Drugs, Beirut, Passion Pit and others have led NPR to call him "indie rock's most valuable sideman."
Guster started with two acoustic guitars and a pair of bongos and have since evolved and expanded their instrumentation, gaining a massive fan base that follows them to sold-out shows at New York's Radio City Music Hall and Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. The band's last release, 2010's 'Easy Wonderful,' earned their highest chart debut on the Billboard Top 200 and opened at #2 on iTunes. The album was praised by the Wall Street Journal for its "jangly, ebullient rock" and by USA Today for the "impeccable, infectious" songs that are "impossible not to feel," while Vanity Fair called it "feel-good" and Boston Globe hailed its "effervescent and thoughtful pop."1.

Ben Folds Five - LiveImAVeePee Records/Sony Music is proud to release Ben Folds Five Live, the
rst live album from piano-pop trio Ben Folds Five. Recorded in 2012 on their
rst tour in more than a decade, this new set - available on CD and doublevinyl - will be the perfect prelude to the band's spot on the Last Summer on
Earth Tour, which will see Ben Folds Five lling amphitheaters across America
alongside Barenaked Ladies and Guster.
For longtime fans of Ben Folds' biting, piano-based power-pop songs, the
past two years have been full of excitement. In 2011, Folds reunited with
bassist Robert Sledge and drummer Darren Jessee to record the rst new
Ben Folds Five songs since 1999 for the career-spanning compilation The
Best Imitation Of Myself: A Retrospective. Inspired by the collaborative spark
after so many years apart, the trio reconvened in Folds' Nashville studio to
record their fourth studio album, The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind. The
album was an immediate hit, peaking within Billboard's Top 10 - the band's
Ben Folds Five consistently thrills audiences with their high energy performances, and Ben Folds Five Live captures the band in top form across four
continents through 2012 and 2013. The band deliver powerful renditions of
their most beloved classics like "Jackson Cannery," "Brick" and "Song For The
Dumped" as well as new hits from The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind, including "Do It Anyway," "Draw A Crowd" and "Sky High."Jackson Cannery (The Wareld, San Francisco CA, 1/31/13)

OdysseySony Music Masterworks has announced the release of ODYSSEY, the extraordinary label debut album from The Accidentals.
Named among Yahoo Music's Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017, ODYSSEY affirms The Accidentals place among contemporary music's most original and adventurous new bands. Multi-instrumentalists Sav Buist and Katie Larson - joined onstage and in the studio by drummer Michael Dause - have crafted a genre all their own, fueled by their uniquely limitless approach to musicality and songcraft. Lyrically powerful songs like Earthbound and the potent title track see the band embracing their choice to lead an unconventional life with all its many surprising twists and turns.
Co-produced by Buist, Larson, and Dause with engineer Jason Lehning (Mat Kearney, Guster, George Jones, Alison Krauss) at Asheville, NC's Echo Mountain Recording, ODYSSEY sees The Accidentals joined by such friends and fans as acoustic guitar maestra Kaki King, bassist - and fellow Michigander - Dominic John Davis (Jack White, Beck), Carbon Leaf guitarist Carter Gravatt, Keller Williams and The Decemberists' Jenny Conlee, who spent three days in the studio alongside the band, lending her distinctive organ to a number of the album's key tracks. The Accidentals' inviting spirit of shared creativity is perhaps best represented by the album's audacious first single, KW, showcasing the inimitable guitar work of Keller Williams, whose own virtuosic genre-agnostic approach towards music making inspired the song in the first place.
The Accidentals' adventure began in their hometown of Traverse City, MI, when Larson, a sophomore cellist, and Buist, a junior violinist, were paired for a high school orchestra event. The gifted young musicians became fast friends and before long, bandmates. Having both grown up in musical families with professional pianists for fathers and vocalists for mothers, their shared influences bounced between classical, jazz, bluegrass, country, alt-rock, and the obscure.
The past five years have seen The Accidentals perform over a thousand live shows, including headline dates, festival sets, and shared stages along such like-minded acts as Martin Sexton, Brandi Carlile, Andrew Bird, The Wailers, Joan Baez and others. 2015's SXSW debut saw them hailed by Billboard for displaying a genre-hopping range of influences and some smart songwriting skills to go with their abundant musical chops.1.
