#TrackoftheDay: “Evil”

ClutchUSA (2019) There’s just something about a band that can kick it as hard live as they can in the studio. Clutch is one of those bands.

"Fleetwood Mac’s 'Dreams' is number 1 on iTunes this morning. Van Halen’s singles take up a third of the top 100."

Showbiz 411 reports. I was just blogging a few days ago about the reason for the current popularity of "Dreams" — here. Remember —  doggface208, cran-raspberry juice, skateboarding? And you know why everyone wants to listen to Van Halen right now. Ironically, one of the songs selling best is a Van Halen cover of The Kinks’ 'You Really Got Me.'" I don't know what's ironic about that. The point is simply that the royalties go to the songwriter, so Ray Davies gets the windfall. And Stevie Nicks g...

His previous release, the 2019 box set “Spirit Council,” collected three long-form guitar compositions, each refined over tours in recent years and all running long enough to fill their own CD. That project behind him, Moore says he wanted to return to the tighter format of a single a...
