Neil Young to Release a Gem from his Archives

Unreleased Album Hitchhiker Set For Release On September 8 Via Reprise Records
Solo Acoustic Studio Album Recorded in 1976
Album Pre-Order Begins Today


August 4, 2017 (Burbank, CA) – Neil Young will open his archive and release Hitchhiker, an unreleased new studio album. The release date is September 8, 2017 on Reprise Records – it will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally. The 10-track acoustic solo album was recorded in Malibu, CA at Indigo Studio in 1976. The original session was produced by Young’s long-time studio collaborator David Briggs. Pre-order for Hitchhiker begins today.  Go here for details:
Recorded between Zuma and American Stars and Bars as a solo album in a single session, the resultant performances are truly breathtaking and passionate. The simplicity of a single voice and guitar captured here is as pure and powerful as it gets, with only Young, Briggs and actor Dean Stockwell in the room at the time of recording. A few of the songs would not appear on vinyl until years later. Some have never been heard, included in the original sessions for Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s Dume, another unreleased record of original sessions that yielded the classic album, Zuma. When the Hitchhiker album was recorded, none of the included songs had ever been released and many of the performances of the songs were the first ever. This is truly an album of original performances.

Side One:                                           Side Two:

The Family Crest   is on a 5-week national headlining tour in support of their new EPPrelude To War” released last Friday.
May 14 Pittsburgh, PA – Club Café | Tickets
Paste Magazine said the new EP is full of “huge, rollicking numbers with a few sparse moments of tenderness interspersed throughout … one thing is certain: These guys are just as explosive as ever, and these songs are going to bring the house down in a live setting.”
“Prelude To War” is the follow up to the band’s LP “Beneath The Brine” which earned the group a spot on Paste Magazine’s “20 Best New Bands” and an album WNYC called “a complex and sweeping soundscape that gives every song a sense of cinematic scope as Liam McCormick’s soaring vocals shake the rafters.”

The Contortionist is Coming to Pittsburgh OCT 3 @MrSmalls

The Contortionist have released a “Rediscovered” version of their most recent LP, Language. The new version contains four re-worked tracks recorded and engineered by John Douglass and mixed/mastered by Jamie King. The rediscovered tracks are accompanied by four all new music videos for the same tracks.
“Playing with that idea, throughout all the songs, there is also a story woven in that
               plays on a few different ideas,” Lessard explains. “Even beyond the actual lyrics and what
              they are literally saying, some of the vocal sounds themselves play a part.”It’s a crude summary of an ambitious project – one that has dense layers of
              sophistication listeners can delve into on their own, while others may be just as happy
to nod their head along to the expansive rhythms and accessible song motifs.The men of The Contortionist remain in awe of prog-titans like Yes, King Crimson and
              Rush. At the same time, the music they are creating will not only build bridges between
               different genres and different scenes; it can even send younger fans to dig through their
              parents’ LP collections look for albums by old legends. Language is more than capable of
              launching The Contortionist to the top of the progressive realm and into the creative
