It’s probably no shock for Todd Snider followers to discover that he was/is heavily influenced by veteran gonzo country singer/songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker. Snider has been carrying on Walker’s scraggly Texas-styled country/Americana tradition since he started, without specifically acknowledging it… until now. He and some musical friends along with co-producer to the stars Don Was, kick back and sling out 14 Walker tracks that range from the iconic (“Mr. Bojangles”/“Railroad Lady”) to the relatively obscure (“Vince Triple-O Martin”) with the same laconic/scrappy vibe that has defined Walker’s own music over the past 45 years. It’s clearly a labor of love but should also help Walker’s tunes (and extensive career) get discovered by Snider’s younger, hipper fan base.

Peter Karp And Sue Foley’s second duo record delivers on the promise of their groundbreaking, critically acclaimed 2010 song-cycle, He Said – She Said. It’s a high voltage, blues-rockin’ set of 12 of the sort of brilliantly crafted and unique original compositions that have become the trademark of these two noted singer/songwriter guitarists. Of He Said – She Said, Rod Ames of No Depression Magazine wrote, “This is a great record, absolutely not to be missed. 14 tracks of some of the sexiest, steamiest, dramatic, and comedic tunes I have ever heard from two very different artists.”

“Everyone has choice/When to and not to raise their voices.” So sings George Harrison on “Run Of The Mill,” one of the ten outtakes and demos collected on Early Takes, Volume 1, a companion piece to the  release of Martin Scorsese’s documentary about George’s life, Living In The Material World.

The third album from Los Angeles fuzz-rockers Silversun Pickups, Neck of the Woods (due May 8) started with a chance meeting when the band stumbled across Grammy-winning producer Jacknife Lee (R.E.M., U2, Weezer) while recording guest vocals for a Snow Patrol track. But Pickups frontman Brian Aubert is quick to point out that pretty much everything about the album — from producer to studio location right down to its found-photo album art — has been serendipitous. “It’s bizarre,” the affable singer/guitarist tells SPIN, a day after hearing the record in full for the first time. “We can’t take credit for any of it. It just accidentally happened.”
