Tom Hamilton – Aerosmith Now & Then (INTERVIEW)

The holidays are upon us and everyone is out there searching for perfect stocking stuffers for friends and family. And what would be more perfect than a new album by a kick ass band from Boston. Music From Another Dimension is Aerosmith’s 15th studio album and features rockers like “Luv XXX,” “Legendary Child,” “Beautiful,” “Street Jesus” and the Joe Perry foot stomper “Freedom Fighter.” Hell, there is even a duet with country’s Carrie Underwood on “Can’t Stop Loving You.” Leave it to Aerosmith to always throw in a little head jerk surprise on an album that has to be their best since the hit-laden late-80’s and early-90’s.

American Babies: Flawed Logic

Tom Hamilton is an amazing and underappreciated songwriter. While his work in Brothers Past and American Babies has steadily produced memorable hook after memorable melody across a diverse range of musical styles (from electro jam to indie-electro brooding to pastoral country rock) his name is not particularly well known. Hamilton’s penchant for producing a majestic elegance inside all his musical voices is second to none and on his new American Babies release, Flawed Logic, he further cements his reputation as major talent.

A Memory of Music: October 2010

Today we introduce a new column called A Memory of Music put together by HT’s Photo Editor, Jeremy Gordon. Each month, Jeremy will compile a collection of his favorite shots along with the story behind the photos…

The first photo comes from the Brooklyn Bowl, where Anders Osborne shared the bill with the Stanton Moore Trio in front of a packed house.  The band continued down to New Orleans for the Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival where Stanton Moore tabbed the talented Scott Metzger to join up for the rest of the tour.  As Scott explains, “When Stanton calls, no matter how early in the morning, you answer the phone.”

While some sit-ins require hours of planning to happen, others occur more spontaneously. As Lotus prepared to take the stage at the Westcott Theater in Syracuse, NY, E Street Band – and former Conan O’Brien drummer – Max Weinberg was in town to give a keynote speech at the Music Industry Conference.  Well, Lotus’s tour manager saw him back stage, Max asked about sitting in with the band and voila.  You can check the audio and video from the night here and here.

Cover Wars: In The Aeroplane Over The Sea

In The Aeroplane Over The Sea is the title track from the 1998 Neutral Milk Hotel indie classic. Such a classic that Pitchfork gave it a perfect 10.0. Well, they gave the reissue a perfect 10. Some call it the most important indie album of all-time, only a select few super-hip fans of the genre wouldn’t put it in a Top 5 list, though saying that Neutral Milk Hotel is overrated is also popular. Point is, if you didn’t know of this band, album or song until Phish covered it last week – go buy it and listen to it over and over again.
