New Music: Natalie Jean

Natalie Jean sent over her latest single: What Would You Do For Love? This song asks the listener to think about what they would sacrifice in the name of love.

“It’s not about trying to change somebody’s mind, but give them a new perspective. This song is about the sacrifices we would make for our loved ones. Would you be able to watch your loved one suffer, knowing you would be able to do something about it, and possibly making the ultimate sacrifice? This is not about changing someone’s opinion, but asking you to take the time and think about the subject.”

New Music: Uncle Ben’s Remedy: The Things That Bring You Back

BRN Kicks off December’s New Releases with Uncle Ben’s Remedy and their sophomore album “The Things That Bring You Back”. 13 tracks that veer off down a path where Outlaws smoke, drink, tell tall tales and long for home. Normally BRN would pick 3 tracks from a release to premiere, but we settled on 7 for this month and that was not easy.

“With a voice that’s equal parts Merle Haggard and Dr. Teeth, lead singer Ben Westlund delivers his acerbic lyrics with spit and fury. Ben and the Remedy Boys shatter the niceties of radio friendly pop country. Their brand of outlaw country doesn’t feature learning from or regret for past mistakes.” -Brian Rock / TJ Music
