This Franklin, Tennessee bandis named after the hometown apartment complex where the trio’s members lived off and on at points in their lives. Formerly known as Caleb, this incarnation hit all the right buttons. They’ll be playing October 18th at the Evening Muse in Charlotte.
Elle King is the stage name for Tanner Schneider. She calls herself a “banjo slinging baby.” Think of her as Meghan Trainor (“All About The Bass”) with a slightly naughty edge. Not that that is bad thing, at all, in our opinion. She’s the daughter of Rob Schneider, Mr. Deuce Bigelow.
“Ex’s & Oh’s” is the first single from her forthcoming album.
His tour will bring him to Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta where he’ll do two shows on October 30th.
Hardcore Pink Floyd fans who hadn’t given up on the band after The Division Bell or grown out of getting stoned and listening to The Wall and watching The Wizard of Oz should be pleased by this announcement.
It’s clear that this release will be for their most hardcore of fans. It will be broken up in to virtual LP sides and will be all instrumentals save for one track, “Louder Than Words.”
The album will be released on Columbia Records on Monday, November 10, 2014 and is produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson.
David Gilmour said:
“’The Endless River’ has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions. We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album. Over the last year we’ve added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick gone, and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire.”
The Endless River’s track listing runs across four sides, to invoke the album listening experience:
THE ENDLESS RIVER
Things Left Unsaid
It’s What We Do
Ebb And Flow
The Lost Art of Conversation
On Noodle Street
Eyes To Pearls
Louder Than Words
