Band & The Beat: remix the "Straight and Narrow" single

Band & The Beat, the dream pop synth side-project by Tracy Shedd and James Tritten, have put up the stems for their Straight and Narrow single:

Band & The Beat want you to make your own music, using their music! Band & The Beat have made all of the audio stems from their two Digital 45 releases available on their Bandcamp page for free download (or make a donation if you like).

"What are 'audio stems'?," you ask. Basically they are separated tracks of each key section of the song (e.g. drums, bass, synths, leads, vocals, etc.). Anyone can download these files, and then import them into a DAW program and remix the tracks to make their own version of each track.

Send any remixes directly to Fort Lowell Records: Then, all remixed songs will be featured on Band & The Beat's own Soundcloud page for everyone to enjoy.

Neil Young + Promise of the Real: new live album "Earth" 06/17

Earth, a live album culled from the 2015 tour by Neil Young + Promise Of The Real, will be released on June 17th. Neil about the album:

Ninety-eight uninterrupted minutes long, EARTH flows as a collection of 13 songs from throughout my life, songs I have written about living here on our planet together. Our animal kingdom is well represented in the audience as well, and the animals, insects, birds, and mammals actually take over the performances of the songs at times.
