  1. Altered Five Blues Band, Holler If You Hear Me was released on September 3, 2021. "Milwaukee’s outrageously cool Altered Five Blues Band gets one step closer to world domination with the release of their new platter Holler If You Hear Me. Set to break out September 3rd, 2021 on Blind Pig Records, the album was made over the span of only five days in Nashville, Tennessee with three-time Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy) at the helm. Hambridge produced the band’s earlier chart-topping album Ten Thousand Watts and has developed a musically successful relationship and workflow with the members of Altered Five that seems to level up every time they all get together. Holler If You Hear Me is an absolutely stomping good time and proves once again that Altered Five Blues Band rates among the top roots music acts in the business. The group is tight, fully seasoned, and capable of writing songs that stand tall and sound fresh, which is exactly what they do on this, their sixth album."

  2. Hello Firmani99, and welcome to thecarversite.com. We're glad you're hear. There is a lot of information here, much technical know how, and a pretty good bunch of folks that are happy to help. Both of those amps are great choices, and you'll be amazed at what Greg can do for them! Once you get to Novice status, please consider uploading some pics of your gear in the Members Systems area. We all like pics of all kinds of audio gear. In the meantime, kick your shoes off, turn up the music, and welcome aboard.
  3. Happy Birthday Brian! I hope you have a great day!
  4. Happy Birthday Rich. I hope you have a great day, and thank you for sharing your knowledge and modifications.
  5. Hello 737Viper, and welcome to thecarversite.com. We're glad you're hear. There is a lot of information here, much technical know how, and a pretty good bunch of folks that are happy to help. Nice collection of gear. You will be amazed at how well the C-1 and M1.5t perform once they've been refreshed (upgraded?). The BillD upgrade on a C-1 puts in on a level playing field with preamps costing much more.

  8. Jackie Venson, Love Transcends was released on September 24, 2021. "... she hadn’t made a strictly blues-centric album until her latest offering, Love Transcends. After a few years of playing the guitar, she had started “happily” wandering sonically, incorporating and blending more genres. She likes how one can push the boundaries of any genre by “introducing little facets of others.” " I discovered Jackie Venson via Austin CIty Limits, and I am amazed, even overwhelmed at the shear joy she exudes while performing. Even though she spoke about Black Lives Matter, she did so in a way that came from her soul, and she did so without coming across as only black lives matter. Her message was spot on in that she said several times, "We all matter." On ACL, Venson and Tameca Jones did a cover of SRV's Texas Flood. I've included that performance here.

  11. Khruangbin & Leon Bridges , Texas Moon was released on February 18, 2022. "On the face of it, Grammy-winning R&B singer Leon Bridges and left-field alt-rock Khruangbin, led by guitar wizard Mark Speer, seem a very unlikely combination. ... The first results, 2020’s “Texas Sun” EP, sounded like both acts, but added up to much more than the sum of the parts — it sounded like a new band, with Bridges’ warm voice and melodies meshing beautifully with the band’s intricate yet smooth rhythms. Naturally, they teamed up again, and even more naturally, the new release is an EP titled “Texas Moon.” Calmer and a bit moodier than the debut, it finds the two bringing out things in their sounds that hadn’t really been there before — a slow neo-‘70s funk sound from Speer on the opening track “Doris,” and a faster one from the group on the following track “B-Side.” But the high point is the cheerfully upbeat “Chocolate Hills.” The group almost immediately brings it back down with the low-key “Father Father” and the easy groove of the closer “Mariella.” Combined, the two EPs make a warm and well-rounded album with two distinct sides. And both Bridges and the band say they played to continue the collaboration — hopefully the next move is a full album soon." You can read the rest of the review here... I discovered Khruangbin and Leon Bridges on PBS Austin City Limits.

  14. I have no idea how often this happens, but I found this interesting. I think The Rippingtons fans out there might find it interesting as well. The Rippingtons, Moonlighting was also released in Japan as Cruise Control, Moon Riding. Both albums were released on CD and vinyl. Does anyone know of others?
  15. Semblant, Vermilion Eclipse was released on April 15, 2022. "There’s a thin line in metal music when using clean and gruff vocals. This seems to be particularly important in bands who employ female singers with male musicians who add the growls. It doesn’t always work and can overpower and distract from the overall delivery. Thankfully, this isn’t the case for Brazilian outfit SEMBLANT, whose album “Vermilion Eclipse” is their second release for Frontiers Music srl. It’s their fourth album overall for a band who have been together for over 15 years." You can read the rest of the review here... While I'm usually not a goth metal fan, Mizuho Lin has the voice of an angel. Her voice reminds me of Pat Benatar. She also has a youtube channel where she sings a variety of music including Disney movie tracks and a Jon Bon Jovi cover. https://www.youtube.com/c/MizuhoLin
