A Bubble to Burst, Featuring Jeff Ament


Today, The Missoulian reports that Montana musician, David Boone, is preparing to release a new album, A Bubble to Burst, with a song featuring Jeff Ament.  The first single for his album is called Country Song, and the b-side, Work in Progress features a bass line by Jeff Ament.
David Boone has never thought small. The singer-songwriter's talent and drive were strong enough that he once sold out the Wilma, an unprecedented move for a local artist. When he wanted to pursue success outside Montana, he recorded an album with Danton Supple, a producer with credits on albums by Coldplay and Morrissey.

Now, after serious health problems sidelined him for years, sometimes unable to remember his own songs, Boone is releasing new music again, and he aimed high. On his new single, "Country Song," and "Work in Progress," he recorded with Supple, who flew from London. The bass line on the latter track was supplied by part-time Missoula resident Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam.
You can listen to Boone's latest single wherever you listen to such things, or you can pre-order his new album here.

Chris Cornell Tribute Coming to L.A., January 16th


On January 16th, Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting a tribute to Chris Cornell at the Forum in Los Angeles featuring members of Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, and Audioslave.  It's unclear if this means all of those members or some of those members.

The show will also include performances by the Foo Fighters, Metallica, and Ryan Adams.

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am PST and include a "copy of Chris Cornell's Retrospective."  Does that mean this?  Also, all proceeds benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation as well as The Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation.

Show Your Colors by Mike McCready and Thunderpussy


Mike McCready and Thunderpussy members, Molly Sides and Whitney Petty, have released a new song, Show Your Colors, for the soundtrack of Megan Griffiths' upcoming moving, SadieRolling Stones spoke with the artists about the song.
“For ‘Show Your Colors,’ I wanted Molly Sides [and] Whitney Petty from Thunderpussy to play [and] write what they felt,” McCready told Rolling Stone in a statement. “It is important to me to collaborate with great artists, and they pushed me to create and really feel the film on a deeper level.”

In a separate statement, Griffiths called herself a “lifelong Pearl Jam fan” and said it was “incredibly exciting” to work with McCready on the film’s music.

“His score is haunting, dark, spare and powerful,” she said. “It works beautifully to amplify the themes of the film, and is also a gorgeous body of work to listen to on its own … I was also thrilled when Mike brought in Molly [and] Whitney from Thunderpussy to collaborate on the score. Sitting in the studio watching the three of them work and feed off of each other’s creative energy was inspirational, and when I watched them perform ‘Show Your Colors’ for the first time I got chills.”
You can currently listen to the song on YouTube, or it will be available as part of the soundtrack starting November 13th.

Dry As A Bone / Rehab Doll Reissues


SubPop has announced (and credit to Guerrilla Candy for alerting me to this) that they are reissuing two Green River albums, Dry As a Bone and Rehab Doll.
Green River, which formed in 1984, was part of that evolution, with a sound that straddled a lot of different genres—blues, punk, boozy straight-ahead rock. The mini-LP Dry As A Bone, which came out in 1987, and the LP Rehab Doll, which came out in 1988, were released as a single CD with a few bonus cuts, including their sneering cover of David Bowie’s “Queen Bitch” and their marauding version of Dead Boys’ “Ain’t Nothin’ to Do,” in 1990—but they’ve been unavailable on vinyl for years. Now, these slices of Seattle music history are not only back in print, they’re accompanied by items from the from the vaults that had been forgotten about for decades.
Both albums are available for pre-order now on Loser LP (green vinyl), LP, CD, or digital formats, individually or as a bundle.
