Is ‘Delta’ the Dawn of a New Era for Mumford & Sons?

Aside from keyboardist Ben Lovett looking like a stereotypical ’70s drug dealer who hangs around the disco on Thursday night before trying his pick-up lines on the ladies, it sounds like British folk rockers Mumford & Sons have a promising new single from a promising new album titled ‘Delta.’

Personally, the band’s previous album ‘Wilder Mind’ was incredible. The guitars and drums were louder when they needed to be and more controlled when they needed to be for a memorable music collection. The lyrics were fantastic and the album’s sound has staying power. Interestingly, the new single “Guiding Light” doesn’t definitively reveal a new daring sound. Nor does it confirm a return to past songs by Mumford & Sons.

It’s just…good.

And on the 14-track album ‘Delta,’ there will be plenty for us to listen to while our mind wanders to something deeply personal, imaginative and–dare I write it–wilder than what we’re expecting from Mumford & Sons?

We’ll find out on November 16 when the new album drops.

Myles Kennedy Has Returned With Rock Music’s Icon/Guitar Hero

Is Thursday night the actual start of the weekend?

No.

However, we can still pretend. And in that spirit, let’s all enjoy some brand new rock ‘n’ roll from…

The fact that this band kicks ass is not a conspiracy.

Today’s Emotion Is Sweet

Aerosmith is one of the greatest and most iconic rock bands of all-time. The band’s style, look, and the sound is unmistakable. As a group, they boast an incredible musical catalog, as well as a backstage dust-up between its two biggest stars that led to its initial breakup.

Aerosmith has it all as a rock band.

Aerosmith is leaning into the future.

Aerosmith played a special concert on the Today Show earlier today.

Aerosmith doesn’t need to learn new tricks. Those tricks still rock…and roll.

The Real Elvis imPERSONAtor

“The King” left the building (so to speak) many moons ago, but we’re getting an opportunity to really see him in a brand new revealing light.

Elvis Presley had (has) a fan-culture akin to the Beatles in many respects. He was an ordinary boy who became a man that could sing, who then not-so-quietly evolved into a musical and performing icon unlike most anybody in recent memory. The latter is not necessarily concerning the pure talent-side of things, as there have been (and there currently are) several living legends across music’s diverse spectrum. However, there is a relentlessly magnetic fandom that, from the outside, appears equally dedicated and passionate about Mr. Presley’s many offerings more than 40 years after his death.

He was (is) a rare force.

This rock n’ roll star delivered a crowd-pleasing electricity every time he hit any kind of stage (music, TV, and movie). The hope is the forthcoming two-part HBO documentary Elvis Presley: The Searcher will shine a spotlight on “the King” that might give us hints as to his illustrious, undying legacy.

And why his moves still move people to this day.

P.S. At least we know who taught him those signature dance moves…
