Weezer’s ‘The Teal Album’ has you covered

Anyone who knows me knows that for the most part, I stopped paying attention to music over two decades ago. My tastes, while not quite frozen in amber, haven’t changed a whole lot in the years that have passed since, so it’s rare for a new musical project to appear that piques my interest in any meaningful way.

And then Weezer dropped “The Teal Album.”

Americana singer and songwriter Joel Thetford and his band entered Halo Studio in Windham last October with a mission to record a truly collaborative project with producer Jonathan Wyman. The resulting “Broken Things” is Thetford’s third and most impressive EP to date.

Album review: Neil Young's 'Peace Trail'

Is there no one around Neil Young with the giblets to tell him that his new songs are not very good?  It would seem that way.

New Bruce - Boring in the U.S.A.

The marriage of music and politics is tricky. For each instance where it works, (Neil Young's 'Rocking in the Free World' - as good as it gets), you could cite 10 where it doesn't (including Neil Young's 'Living With War' - ugh). On Tuesday, March 6, Bruce Springsteen will issue his 17th studio album, 'Wrecking Ball' - a collection of mostly angry songs with Springsteen assuming the role of various characters who feel betrayed by the promise of the American Dream. After I listened to 'Wrecking Ball,' I felt betrayed by the promise of a good Springsteen album. It hurts to admit that - I'm a fan and I sometimes wonder if I'm the only one who feels let down by most everything Bruce has issued over the past 20 years.

Over the last 40 years, Bruce Springsteen has delivered some of the most vital, joyous, engaging and thoughtful songs in rock. Now that I think of it, most of those songs appeared during his first 20 years of recording.
