Robbie Tucker Album Release
Robbie Tucker Builds a Time Machine to Meet The Beatles. New Brunswick artist conjures a fantastical world with new album “Blue Candy”. He’s been compared to Paul McCartney before. But now it seems that Robbie Tucker has gone back in time and stolen their sound before it formed. Don’t be fooled – you won’t be hearing any Beatles knock-offs on Robbie Tucker’s Blue Candy – but you will wonder if Paul and Ringo didn’t have a baby, raise him in secret, and teach him to make records. +++ info >

David Myles’ That Tall Distance
David Myles shares the sophisticated, surfy “Bird Song,” ahead of his new album That Tall Distance (out 08/27). “This is an expression of my love for instrumental jazz, funk and soul,” said David Myles (he/him), of debut single, Bird Song. “As a young trumpet player I loved stuff like Donald Byrd, Grant Green, Herbie Hancock and Freddie Hubbard. […] Like those great recordings, I wanted to write songs that were strong enough to be able to hold everything together, but loose enough for there to be lots of room for the other players to really dig in and express themselves. That was the key for me.”  +++ info >
