“Nothing To It” by the New Basement Tapes

What would you do if you found a box of old Bob Dylan lyrics that needed some music put behind them? You’d probably call up some of music’s best to lend a hand. This week we’re featuring The New Basement Tapes, a project featuring Elvis Costello, Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons), Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), and legendary producer T Bone Burnett who recorded 40 songs from Dylan’s lyrics, which he wrote at age 26. Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes drops November 11th. Until then, check out their awesome first single, Nothing To It. Oh, and don’t worry, all you music purists, Dylan gave his blessing!

“Out On A Ride” by Beverly

Led by Drew Citron, formerly of Avan Lava, we’re pumped to have the band co-headline our Draw Your Own Line event at The Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club this Friday night, it’s sure to be an energetic live show!

“Violence Never Ending” by Pennywise

This week we’re stoked on new music from SoCal punk legends, Pennywise! Their eleventh studio album, Yesterdays, is pretty special for two reasons. It marks the return of frontman, Jim Lindberg, who left the band in 2009. Second, the album includes awesome songs never recorded until now and written by original bassist, Jason Thirsk, who passed away in 1996. Don’t miss Pennywise in their purest form. Check out Violence Never Ending!

“Chambers” by Cymbals Eat Guitars

This week we’re featuring New York-based, Cymbals Eat Guitars, whose founding members, Joseph D’Agostino and Matthew Miller, share the same roots as Jetty, having gone to high school right in Manahawkin, NJ. Influenced by artists like Modest Mouse, Stephen Malkmus, and Built To Spill, the band has a great new record (their third) called LOSE coming on Aug 26th through Barsuk Records. Check out their single, Chambers!

“Adult Diversion” by Alvvays

Hailing from Canada is this week’s Music Monday artist, Alvvays! Most bands don’t slip by our radar for quite so long, but somehow we completely missed it here, and were just lucky enough to spot their self-titled, debut record under the new releases in Spotify this week. Led by singer, Molly Rankin, Alvvays is much more than the stereotype of hipsters playing pop-rock songs. The album features a bunch of soundtrack-ready cuts that oddly hit notes of a variety of artists spanning the Kathleen Edwards-esque vocals in Archie, Marry Me or the Beach House synth and beat in the song Dives. Overall it’s a great little record that hopefully puts Alvvays on course to continually evolve into a great band. Check out their summer-worthy video for Adult Diversion!

“My Sweet Summer” by Dirty Heads

It’s no secret all of us at Jetty love Dirty Heads, and were especially stoked to have them contribute to the soundtrack for our Jetty Rock-funded documentary, Landfall. With all they do, the band isn’t showing any signs of slowing down, releasing their fourth album not even a year after their last. Check out their single My Sweet Summer from their new album, titled Sound Of Change, out now!

“Milly’s Garden” by Steve Gunn

This week we’re bringing you new music from former Kurt Vile guitarist, Steve Gunn. It’s hard to believe Milly’s Garden isn’t decades old, as it captures the same energy and soul as classic acts like The Allman Brothers and The Marshall Tucker Band, while still feeling relevant to now. Check out his first single here, and get the record Way Out Weather on October 7th!
