Stevie Young Talks About Playing Rhythm Guitar in AC/DC

Posted:

In a new video posted on the official AC/DC YouTube channel, guitarist Stevie Young talks about his playing style, how he constantly works at his craft, his tendency to destroy guitar guitar picks and what’s it like to try to fill the shoes of his uncle, Malcom Young.

“I’m not trying to imitate or copy him, but trying to keep the spirit of what he did in the band,” explained Stevie.

Live From Plum Creek Studios Trailer

Posted:

Relix.com and Jambands.com recently debuted the new trailer from Israel Nash’s “Live From Plum Creek Studios.”

The footage was captured during Austin’s annual SXSW festival when Nash opened the doors to his new studio outside of Austin for a free recording session featuring the likes of T. Hardy Morris, Delta Spirit’s Matt Vasquez, Midlake’s Eric Pulido, Bee Caves, the Wild Reeds and Kirby Brown.

Each artist, including Nash, gave an intimate live performance for a small number of special guests, friends and family.

“As many people know, I’m all about writing, recording, living, and talking about the Hill Country and my tiny town, Dripping Springs, TX,” wrote Nash in his invite. “It’s just a purely magical place for me to really be myself as an artist and person. I also believe that those things that bless us should be shared. So we are literally swinging the front gate open and inviting people to come out to my new studio, Plum Creek Sound to hear some amazing bands, take in some incredible hill country views, and just get away from the hustle of SXSW. And hopefully, that peace I get from being out here can be bestowed on others. It’s just the beginning for the studio and in the future, we will host a series of events like these focused on the land, the vibes, and the music. It’s all so special to me. It’s about giving back to those people and those places that have given to you. It’s about people coming together and making this life work out. And it’s about smoking a j and drinking a beer in the middle of the country. Incredible things happen that way.”

The incredible things that happened at the event were fortunately captured on camera, and will be shared on Reliv over the coming weeks as part of a unique video series.

Watch the trailer for the series below.

Tegan and Sara Drop New Single and Video Starring Adorable Puppies

Posted:

Tegan and Sara’s new album Love You to Death will drop June 3, and the twin sisters have been trickling out morsels over the last few months. First a teaser for lead single “Boyfriend,” then the full song plus a music video, another single in “U-Turn” and now a third sampling with a music video for “100x.”

While “Boyfriend” and “U-Turn” are the type of synth-driven pop perfection we’ve come to love from these women, “100x” is a bit more piano-based melancholic torch tune that sears with emotion.

The lyrics alone will pull at your heartstrings, but Tegan and Sara took that a step further with the video by starring a few scene-stealing puppies, courtesy of renowned dog groomer Jess Rona.

“I met Jess Rona at a Mafia party in LA and we hit it off immediately,” Sara Quin revealed. “An actor, musician and dog groomer, ‘JessRonaGrooming’ became my favorite Instagram account. I constantly direct people to her beautiful, heartbreaking mini-music videos of her furry clients, because they’re an endless delight. It was a true honor to have her do a long form version for our song 100x.”

Check out the clip below, which debuted today via Noisey.

See the New Cheap Trick Video for Bowie-Esque Single

Posted:

A week in advance of their April 8 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band,  Cheap Trick dropped new album Bang, Zoom, Crazy … Hello, which marked their first album since 2009.

Late last year, the band advanced its single “No Direction Home,” and then followed up with a video last month for second single “When I Wake Up Tomorrow.”

“This song always reminds me of a sultry David Bowie song,” Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen told Rolling Stone of the latter. “I liked it from the first time we attempted to do it. It’s just a moody, interesting piece with some heavy guitars in the middle. The last line is ‘Are you gonna be here when I wake up tomorrow,’ and then Bowie passed away after we recorded it.”

Cheap Trick bassist Tom Petersson has been rocking his custom-built Gretsch 12-string bass for a while, but even Nielsen gets in on the Gretsch action in this clip with a guitar signed by Monkees’ Micky Dolenz.

Watch the video below, and click here to buy the new album.
