The Band of Heathens Premieres “Black Cat”, Based On An Epic Immigrant Story

When The Band of Heathens heard a very tall tale about a man who immigrated to New York in the early 1900s, they were so mesmerized by the imaginative story that they wrote a song about it near moments later and recorded it the very next day. And it would develop to be an even greater contender, fairing as an essential track on their upcoming album Stranger, due for release on September 25.

Willie Nelson’s ‘First Rose of Spring’ Another Bouquet from the Master

With First Rose of Spring, Willie Nelson’s studio album tally is up to 16 — for the last decade alone. (It’s 70 overall — so far.) Lately, they’ve started rolling into one another, like points along a continuum rather than discrete entities. But even though his last few releases have been thematically similar — he’s been ruminating about mortality, loss and life in the rear view for some time now — they’re each worth savoring as genuine pearls of musical wisdom, delivered by our most revered sage of country Zen.
~ Lynne Margolis, American Songwriter
