Royal Southern Brotherhood Mike Zito Devon Allman Cyril NevilleWe have a new supergroup in our midst as Royal Southern Brotherhood releases their self-titled debut this week. Bluesman Mike Zito has teamed with Cyril Neville and Devon Allman to form this new band and they're already on the road promoting the album. We've got the lowdown on their summer itinerary as well as a way for you to download a free song from the record if you want a sample before you buy.

Barenaked Ladies - Stop Us If You've Heard This Before!Stop Us If You've Heard This One Before! is a collection of rarities and demos from Barenaked Ladies covering their Reprise years (which is the majority and best-known portion of their career). There was a time the band considered releasing an entire box set of this kind of material but that was before they left their label and Steven Page left the band. I don't know if we'll still get that box set or if there will be more single-disc volumes in the future but for now we'll have to make do with these 12 tracks.

Rita Wilson (aka Mrs. Tom Hanks) is best known for being Mrs. Tom Hanks and has also starred in a number of movies over the years. It turns out she, like many actors and actresses, once dreamed of a life as a singer and AM/FM is a collection of her singing some of her favorite songs. It doesn't take a lot of imagination to guess who some of those songs are by (Carole King, Joni Mitchell) nor to take a pretty good guess what this whole affair will sound like.

I'm an unabashed fan of Keane's debut Hopes And Fears but unfortunately the band has never come close to duplicating that magic on subsequent efforts. They release Strangeland, their first album in four years this week and I'm crossing my fingers but wary that they may never equal that great record.

It's been awhile since we've heard from Glenn Frey and the former Eagle has a new solo disc out this week. It's called After Hours and it finds Frey joining Paul McCartney, Rod Steward, and every other aging Boomer doing love songs and standards. I know cover albums are nothing new in the recording industry but I wish labels would stop green lighting these things! The Eagles have made one new album in 30 years and neither Frey, Don Henley, nor Joe Walsh have been drowning us in solo records. That well seems to have run very, very dry.
