Marco Benevento Takes Us On A Journey With New Live EP, “Woodstock Sessions” [Stream/Review]

first_imgThe venerable Marco Benevento has released his 7-song live Woodstock Sessions EP via Royal Potato Family and Woodstock Sessions today. The session was recorded in one take at Applehead Recording studio in Woodstock, NY in front of a live audience. Benevento, along with bassist Karina Rykman and drummer Andy Borger, performed a set that spanned the keyboardist’s entire solo catalog.The set starts off with three songs from his most recent studio album, The Story of Fred Short, including “Dropkick,” which sounds like a 50’s pop rock tune that could be heard on an old-school diner jukebox over a cheeseburger and some soda pop. The 22-minute opus “The Story of Fred Short” is a futuristic indie-sounding number, cut into various sections, that bears witness to a wild build segment of jamming from the trio, before making its way into a dance-inspired finale.“Bus Ride” from 2008’s Invisible Baby makes an appearance in the set with some heavy synth work from Benevento on keys, showcasing his masterful skills. He beseeches the crowd to “Make some noise….now or never” as the group goes into the 2014 track “At The Show” from Swift; never a boring moment at a live Benevento show. “Greenpoint” from 2010’s Between The Needles & Nightfall brings the album to a resounding close, finding some beautiful interplay between each member of the group. As always, Benevento and company take you on an incredible journey, and the Woodstock Sessions EP is keeps in that tradition.The album is currently streaming in full on Spotify, and you can take a listen below:last_img read more

Under-pressure Tim Sherwood won’t abandon philosophy

first_img “I’m trying to instil in them not to be scared to lose,” he said. “If anyone should be scared to lose then it should be me. But I’m not. “I want to go out on the front foot and, if I die, I die on my sword. “Why do we need to be more pragmatic? I would never be pragmatic. I’ve done it a few times but I don’t like myself for it.” Sherwood knows his status is out of his hands, with the next match with Swansea rumoured to be a crunch game for the former Tottenham boss amid suggestions Villa are lining up his successor. “I can only control what I can do and I remain confident in that,” Sherwood added. “The boys have responded. I need the boys to respond and I think they did and did what I asked them to.” Sherwood pointed to the youth and potential in Villa’s squad and hopes to lead by example, along with their more experienced team-mates. Villa lost 2-0 at Chelsea on Saturday, falling to a seventh loss from nine Premier League games this season and 18th in the table. Sherwood’s future is the subject of speculation, but he wants his team to go on the attack. “I think they look around for inspiration and I’m trying to give as much as I can,” he added. “They would also look at Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards and Alan Hutton. Certainly, Hutton and (Kieran) Richardson have been at the club for a long time now. “They are looking at them now and seen them experience it for many years, far too many years. “We are in it again and we’ll get through it. If we do, then this group of players will grow. “If you want to play for a big club like Villa then you’ve got to take pressure otherwise play for a smaller club in a lesser league. “I realise that comes with pressures, with the manager as well, and I hope they can see me. I won’t shirk away. “I can take a lot of inspiration from people like Alan Pardew, who was screamed out of town in Newcastle and look at him now.” Press Association Tim Sherwood says he is prepared to “die on my sword” as he tries to encourage Aston Villa to play their way out of trouble. last_img read more
