Toto covers Weezer’s “Hash Pipe”

Let’s face it, Toto and Weezer haven’t been relevant to me, personally, for a very long time. I did, however, love Weezer’s Blue album, Pinkerton, and the Green albums…after that, I mostly tuned out. So, while I originally scoffed at Weezer’s cover of Toto’s “Africa“, I couldn’t help but enjoy the Toto tit-for-tat cover of Weezer’s “Hash Pipe“, a long-time favorite track of mine.

Toto keyboardist, Steve Porcaro discussed the cover:

“We wanted to do our thing to it, but still pay respect to it. And we added a couple of our kitschy little things to it, which I hope that they laugh [at]. We wish we could be in the room when they hear it.”

Iron & Wine releases new EP // First single: What Hurts Worse

 photo ironandwine-weedgarden_zpsgltvq0lj.jpg

Well, here is something new (literally and a bit sarcastically): The first single, “What Hurts Worse“, from Sam Beam (Iron & Wine)’s new EP, is a beautifully lush, full-bodied, piece of finger-picking folk-pop excellence. Surprise on the EP and no surprise at all on the single’s greatness, is all I mean. The EP is called Weed Garden, and it will be released through Subpop on 8/31, but these aren’t the leftover weeds from last year’s Beast Epic, these are songs that Beam simply didn’t have time to finish as he was putting last year’s album together.

Pre-order Weed Garden here.

Rayland Baxter // New Album + Hi-Fi Indy Show

In the Fall of 2016, demoing his latest album, Wide Awake, Rayland Baxter isolated himself, for three months, in an old rubber factory in rural Kentucky, with little more than a mattress, a guitar, and a Wurlitzer. The fruit of this odd behavior was released last week through ATO Records. It’s a collection of catchy songs, full of pop hooks, and Beatles-esque melodies.

On the new album, Baxter recently told Rolling Stone magazine:

“I like telling stories, and beautifully told stories as well. To captivate another human is a really cool thing to do. I want to be captivating, always, and to be captivated. I’ve just been getting better at it, because I feel like I should be a songwriter and a singer. It’s the thing I’m best at in life at the moment, it’s the thing I’m getting better at the most. It’s an evolution.”

Baxter will play The Hi-Fi in Indianapolis on August 1st.
