Foo Fighters carry on + new music by All Tvvins, Reevah, Joe Marcinek Band, Weyes Blood

Foo Fighters: Rescued

The band's first release since the devastating death of drummer Taylor Hawkins, this single is also the first taste of a new LP, But Here We Are, due in June. The announcement describes the album as "a brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters endured over the last year [and] a testament to the healing powers of music, friendship and family." Billboard calls this track a "rager propelled by the band’s signature mix of Dave Grohl’s primal scream emotion and lyrical elegance," while noting there's no word so far on whether Grohl or someone else played the drums.

All Tvvins: What's Happening

The Dublin-based indie-electronic duo of Conor Adams and Lar Kaye produces the sound of a large ensemble on this first single from an upcoming EP. Adams says the song "captures the sense of confusion and foreboding that many people feel in these turbulent times."

Reevah: Without You

From Dublin we jump up to Derry and find this single by Aoife Boyle, a singer-songwriter developing an alternative-pop sound. She says the song is about "losing and finding yourself. ... A serious subject paired with an upbeat disco pop-tune is my specialty."

Joe Marcinek Band: Fever Dream

This band is constantly evolving, as guitarist Joe Marcinek puts together a different line-up every time he hits the road or the studio. His latest release, Dead Funk Summit, was mainly recorded in New Orleans with bassist George Porter Jr. (of The Meters) and his trio, with additional parts added by keyboardist Melvin Seals of the Jerry Garcia Band and others.

Weyes Blood: Children of the Empire

The latest album from Natalie Mering's project, And in the The Darkness, Hearts Aglow, came out late last year, but as she tours the world to support it, we're dipping back in for this sumptuous track.
