Major & the Monbacks

CD Release Party Dates

The future and integrity of music depends on our generation. Bands like Major and the Monbacks are keeping authentic music alive and pushing it forward as we soar into 2015. They have revived the energy and grit of southern soul, blending this old school style with “60’s infused southern twang” that stirs dreamlike visions of Otis Redding and Chuck Berry playing a beer soaked fraternity party.

Following a highly successful Kickstarter campaign the band headed to Nashville’s WELCOME TO 1979 studio to record their first full length album. The album is set for release in April. We will not only be offering you exclusive album coverage, but we will also we capturing the band on the road for their CD release dates.

Live Music Daily is pleased to announce we will be supporting the band for their Album Release Concerts at The Southern in Charlottesville, VA w/ Kendall St. CompanyThe Broadberry in Richmond with Griff’s Room Band & Special Guests, and Sycamore Deli in Blacksburg, VA w/ The Trongone Band. 

Check back soon for some very special contests and exclusive coverage.

St. Paul & The Broken Bones



Real music grasps your soul, tells you about life, the struggles, the hardships, and the good times. It is more than something you simply listen to passively.

I know the 60’s and 70’s will likely remain the best eras in music history– period. However, some groups are harnessing that energy, compassion, and artistic integrity of eras past. St. Paul & The Bones indicates a commitment to the preservation of genuine-honest music on levels I have not seen in a very long time

The first time you get to see St. Paul & the Broken Bones live you’ll see what all the buzz is about. This band has it all. The front man, a killer horn section, and a whole lot of soul.

Today we are pleased to bring you a free stream of their performance like at Bear Creek Music Festival.

Happy Birthday to a Legend


By John Mikeska:

Happy Birthday to the man, the myth, the outlaw, the legend. Today we celebrate the life of a man who broke all the rules, redefined an industry, and ultimately conquered internal and external demons on his way to becoming one of the most influential figures of his time. Today we salute and pay our respects to the veteran, the cultural icon and national treasure; a true hero of the American Dream… Mr. Johnny Cash


Releases New Track off SAY IT LOUD

Due Out March 2015


Well buckle up, GRiZ is ready to take you on another non-stop funk space filled voyage with his appropriately titled new track, “The Anthem” featuring Mike Avery. “The Anthem” has a powerful backbone covered in sax laden magic. Read the official GRiZ release on the new album below for more information.

Off my new album – SAY IT LOUD – out this March 2015.


For this record I first went out to New York to record with some of the daptone records guys to get the main groove Of the tune. Then I had to travel out to Van Nyus to record a children’s choir, which was the most nerve racking thing I have done in my entire life! Having a group of 7-11 year olds sing your song is quite the feeling. I then finished up the song with Mike Avery in Chicago. He was one super soulful dude and really captured the golden era funk vibes that I love so much. Overall, this is a song that is a total funk dance party. Enjoy with friends, preferably in a room full of disco balls :)

Concert Review

Live in Portland

Roseland Theater • Feb. 21, 2015

Lotus 2015-2-21-20150222115-64

Written by Mitch Melheim

Both anticipation and expectations were high for Lotus’ first appearance in Portland in almost two years and to say they didn’t disappoint would be an understatement. After hearing from multiple people that Lotus was at the top of their game right now, I knew that I was in for a treat but didn’t realize quite how a special of a night it was going to be.

They wasted no time as they started out strong with the electro-funk of “Middle Road” that got the crowd into it right away. After a quick greeting from Luke Miller (guitar, keys), the band busted into fan favorite and particularly groovy “Nematode”. Always a treat early in the show, “Nematode” set the tone for what would be perfect set list placement all night long and displayed the brilliance of Lotus as even through the spaciness of this jam, the crowd stays moving the entire time, bouncing along to the percussion duo of Chuck Morris and Mike Greenfield.

New song “Basin to Benin” then made an appearance and lost none of it’s funk without the addition of live horns that they’ve been using occasionally on this tour. I really like this song and it has me anxious to hear more of what they’ve been working on in preparation for their upcoming album. A wonderful, guitar-heavy “Destroyer” then followed that up before heading into what was potentially the highlight of the night.

That highlight would be the epic set-closing journey of “Bubonic Tonic” > “Tip of the Tongue” > “Zelda” > “Tip of the Tongue”. This near thirty minutes of musical bliss featured, amongst many other things; a vocoder appearance from Luke during “Bubonic Tonic”, a slight doom metal appearance during “Zelda”, and the cosmic funk adventure that was “Tip of the Tongue”.

Picking right back up where they left off, the second set began with a particularly synth-heavy version of “Bush Pilot” off their self-titled 2011 album before heading into another Lotus classic and fan favorite, “Livingston Storm”. The song’s smooth groove soon turned to a full on dance party as the Miller brothers, Jesse (bass and keys) and Luke, took over the jam, further proving the difficulty of labeling Lotus’ music as it feels like dance music but includes a level of class and complexity that would be respected in any jazz club.

Following the transition from intense electro jam back into the casual riff of “Livingston Storm” is the ever smooth and swaying rhythms of “Arupa”. Usually I am one to object to the STS9 and Lotus comparisons but “Arupa” shows undeniable similarities between the two with its melodic rhythm and use of grainy samples.

Yet another flawless segue jam into the aptly named “Mikesnack” which serves mainly as a vehicle for lead guitarist Mike Rempel to blow everybody away with his swirling guitar riffs and freakish solos. This was a particularly great version of “Mikesnack” that I thought was right up there with the first set’s ending run as the highlight of the night.

Next up was “Lead Pipe”, another perfectly placed song to allow us to catch our breath after the hectic “Mikesnack” but that didn’t mean anybody was dancing any less. This song, beginning with the Beastie Boys’ “Root Down” sample before dipping into the melodic wubs of the hook starts out very dubby and then jumped into a drum & bass jam that brought the tempo back up again before slowing down as an extra microphone was brought out for Pan Astral lead singer, Gabriel Otto, dressed as David Byrne, to come out and cover “This Must Be The Place” by the Talking Heads.

Otto’s band, Pan Astral, was brought along by Lotus to support them on the West Coast leg of their tour after his captivating performances as David Byrne during Lotus’ Talking Heads Reconstucted shows at Gathering of the Vibes and Red Rocks last year. It’s been great watching Otto’s stage presence as David Byrne and it’s clear that the band loves having him up there, smirking to each other as he runs around the stage acting out of control with his classic Byrne antics.

An Umbilical Moonrise riff by Rempel at the end of “This Must Be The Place” got more than a few people in my section jumping and smiling, but it ended as just a tease drawing sarcastic disappointment from some of the more dedicated fans in attendance.

The crowd energy heightened as the band pulled out “128” to close the second set. This song begins with an intro that is comparable to the psy-trance sound of Shpongle until busting into another Rempel-led groove. “128” displays most of what I love about this band between the guitar work of Mike Rempel, the electronic-heavy sound, and most importantly, the willingness to get weird with it.

The night came to a perfect end as “Disappear in a Blood Red Sky” closed out the show in the encore. Something about that song makes me feel like I’m watching the ending credits scroll by after a movie. It was a truly impressive set list configuration that seemed to convey a plot the whole way through.

This is indeed, a band at the top of their game.

Yonder • New Album

New Album – “Black Sheep” – Set for June 2015 Release

“Sounds more like Yonder than any record we’ve ever done”


Joined by violinist Allie Kral and mandolin virtuoso Jacob Jolliff, Black Sheep marks the first time in Yonder’s history that we’re actually utilizing, throughout an entire record, the conventional five-piece instrumental arsenal of bluegrass introduced in the 1940s: guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, and bass. The result, says Kaufmann, is that, “This record sounds more like Yonder than any record we’ve ever done. I’m hoping that when people are finished listening to it, they’ll just hit play and listen to it again.”

Black Sheep is scheduled for national release on our own Frog Pad Records at Telluride Bluegrass Festival on June 16, 2015. We look forward to sharing Black Sheep with you, stay tuned for details coming your way on a pre-order, video, and more!

Poor Man’s Whiskey

Cover of the Week

“Ramblin’ Man” – The Allman Brothers Band


Let’s take a look back at this incredible cover by Poor Man’s Whiskey from Sebastopol Community Center in 2014. The southern rock hit, “Ramblin’ Man”, first appeared on the 1973 Allman Brother’s album, Brothers & Sisters. In Alan Paul’s One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band , he notes that the song was actually written during the Eat a Peach sessions, not Brothers & Sisters. Tackling this monstrosity of a hit is no easy feat, but Poor Man’s Whiskey does some serious justice to this song.

Sam Roberts Band

Band of the Week


Since 2001 Sam Roberts has been a best selling independent Canadian artist. After spending time in other bands like William and Northstar, Roberts finally find his niche when he released, The Inhuman Condition. Since then Roberts has recorded several albums under the “Sam Roberts Band”. Smiling on traditions of story telling through songwriting, this band gets what it takes to make a well rounded sound. There’s not too much focus on vocals nor is there too much emphasis on improvisation. Instead, they successfully execute their original work well on all fronts to give listeners a stellar combination of all things great about the art of songwriting.

Sam Roberts Band is relaxing, but remains energetic at the same time. This fine balance makes them a great choice for your Friday evening as you ease yourself into the weekend. Happy Friday Folks !

About Sam Roberts: 

Sam Roberts was living in a hobbit hole on a mountain in Spain, watching the sun set on the hills of Andalucia when the lyrics of “Golden Hour” came to him. If that were the only unusual thing about the making of ‘Lo-Fantasy,’ his fifth studio album, it would still be remarkably strange, but this is no ordinary Sam Roberts Band record.

One year earlier:

New songs were taking shape in the dim glow of Sam’s Montreal basement studio. “It might have taken less time if my kids had respected my privacy a little more,” says Roberts. “Once I put a lock on the door, things started to move faster.” The songs were calling on a broad spectrum of influences, from the Clash to Fela Kuti, from electronic-gurus Underworld to Etienne De Crecy, from Gordon Lightfoot to Ray Davies. What the music needed was a producer and a visionary who could help sculpt these different directions into a focused, living whole. The band took a shot in the dark and sent rough demos across the pond… Who they got was Youth.

Youth (a.k.a. Martin Glover) boasted an incredible resume, with production credits ranging from The Verve’s ‘Urban Hymns’ to Crowded House, as well as stints performing with Paul McCartney, ambient-techno kings The Orb, and post-punk outfit Killing Joke. “His musical background hit every note, all the colours we were trying to put on the record,” says Roberts. They met in Montreal for a freezing February week of pre-production, Youth swearing it had to be “Hell on Earth!” He pored over Roberts’ new tracks with an irreverent and unrelenting eye. “He’d say, ‘Where’s the chorus, man?’” Roberts laughs in his best British accent. “‘That’s not a chorus. THIS is the chorus.’ He was unapologetically ripping the songs to pieces, putting songwriter and band to the test. I had to defend my music, know when to dig in my heels, know when to try a different approach. You have to be elastic enough that you’re open to the new possibilities, and our bond grew stronger through that.”

At the end of the week, Youth returned to England, leaving Roberts and his band—guitarist Dave Nugent, bassist James Hall, keyboardist Eric Fares, and drummer Josh Trager—to make sense of it all. Songs were shuffled, jettisoned, and reassembled, verses became choruses and choruses became verses. While Sam and the band might normally spend twelve months recording an album, Youth returned to Montreal in May and informed them that they’d be recording ‘Lo-Fantasy’ live-off the studio floor in twelve days. “The weather,” he said, “was much better…”

“We worked insanely long hours – after three days of that you’re almost in a hallucinogenic state, like an ayahuasca journey – or so I’ve heard,” Roberts laughs. “Youth would be in the control room with his Hawaiian shirt unbuttoned, dancing and doing oil painting interpretations of the songs while we were recording, and we’re thinking, ‘My God we’ve got a madman at the helm!’”

The combination of sleep deprivation, excitement, uncertainty, and adrenaline pushed the band outside any notion of comfort, generating their most dynamic and inventive arrangements to date. It also helped capture the fiery spirit and urgency that have made their live shows so legendary, earning them spots performing everywhere from Letterman and Conan to Bonnaroo, ACL, Lollapalooza and Bumbershoot, and alongside heroes like the Rolling Stones and AC/DC. “Youth would be very encouraging and constructive, and then sometimes he’d be ruthless,” Sam explains. “You’d be sweating over a guitar part or a vocal take and you’d hear Youth say, ‘Lame!’ in the headphones. Devastatingly direct… It became this real psychological trip. He’s there to create an atmosphere in which a record is going to be made, to shake you right out of your boots as a musician and hold your feet to the fire. And after a while you adapt to being in that frame of mind where you have to think on your feet and be ready to try everything completely differently. If you got Youth up on his feet dancing, you knew you were on the right track.”

It’s only fitting, then, that ‘Lo-Fantasy’ opens with the slithery groove of “Shapeshifters,” an ode to fluid identity and flexible self-image. “That song is a gateway to a lot of what happens on the rest of the record,” Roberts says. “It was one of the first I wrote for the album, an all-out dance track, and I felt that with a song like this under my belt, I wasn’t going to be pigeonholed into making any one specific kind of record.”

From the anthemic call for solidarity of “We’re All In This Together” to the electro-thump of “Chasing The Light,” ‘Lo-Fantasy’ is indeed the most wide-ranging collection Roberts has ever written, infusing his particularly rousing brand of rock and roll with elements of funk, house, electronic, and African music. Throughout it all, his lyrics grapple with greater questions of identity and self-discovery in the modern age. “That’s the test of a rock and roll song or a pop song to me,” Roberts says. “It’s to confront those issues in three or four minutes, to get to a place where the music itself helps bring you towards some enlightenment, or at least some resolution to those big questions.”

Once tracking was completed, Roberts and Nugent headed to Spain for the final touches at El Mirador Studio, a beautiful mountaintop retreat Youth had constructed overlooking olive orchards and modeled after sketches of hobbits’ homes in Middle Earth from the ‘Lord Of The Rings.’ It was there, in his own personal hobbit hole, that Roberts completed work on the album’s final songs, a fittingly strange end to a particularly surreal and mystical recording process.

A remix studio was set up just outside the control room, where Youth and Eddie Banda would take the newly-minted tracks and twist them into electronic incarnations ready for the dance-floors of the world. “We were going through a heavy ‘Tears for Fears’ phase on our last tour,” Roberts explains, so for the final phase of the record, mixing duties were given to Dave Bascombe, renowned UK mixer and engineer on ‘Songs From The Big Chair.’

“Low fantasy is a literary genre that takes place in a world very much like our own, but in which magic – or the possibility of magic – exists,” Roberts says. “It’s grounded in reality, but it’s an altered reality. You can still ride a train to Alberta, but there’s a place for the supernatural in this otherwise rational world – it’s out there and we haven’t tapped into it yet.” Maybe music is the bridge….

Phish • Happy Birthday Carini

Why We Love Carini

 Contributed by: James Purse

It was 18 years ago in Amsterdam on 2/17/97 that Phish first summoned the gods of dark rock with the hastily, and hilariously, put together song about a girl named Lucy and her lumpy head. While no one has ever confirmed the true story behind the song, somewhere a narrative emerged about drum tech Pete Carini’s altercation with a trust-funded female fan and her refusal to move during a European show.

Against all odds, the song quickly became a fan favorite and has launched some of Phish’s most extensive exploratory jams – most notably since the band got back together in 2009. Notable versions include the 21+ minute debut on 2/17/972/26/9712/30/9711/27/9812/28/987/13/99,2/14/03,  12/29/13
