New York Dolls new release info "cause i sez so"

New York Dolls are to release their fourth album 'Cause I Sez So' on May 5th.

The influential rockers worked with producer Todd Rundgren on the new songs, which were recorded at Utopia Sound Studio in Kauai, Hawaii in the Winter.

Rundgren worked on the band's classic self-titled 1973 debut and on their time together, New York Dolls frontman David Johansen says: "It was amazing working with Todd again, and I think we were able to evoke the special sound of our first album and drag it by the hair into the present."

In addition to eleven new tracks, New York Dolls also re-recorded the song 'Trash', which first appeared on the debut LP.

Before the album lands, the band will perform three shows at the South by Southwest festival (SXSW) in Texas this month.

Roger Powell releases Solo Piano Blue Note Ridge

Roger Powell releases Solo Piano Blue Note Ridge
Tuesday March 03, 2009
SAN FRANCISCO - Roger Powell releases Blue Note Ridge, a collection of improvisations that embrace classical melody, contemporary harmony and impressionist forms on this debut solo piano album. A stream of consciousness merging styles and eras, Blue Note Ridge is pure, elegant and honest.

In the 70's and 80's Roger Powell's groundbreaking electronic synthesizer albums Cosmic Furnace (Atlantic) and Air Pocket (Bearsville) were hailed as masterworks. Powell has always been held in high esteem by his peers. "Even among the keyboard titans of the prog-rock Seventies, Roger Powell always stood out." (Future Music U.S. Ed.- June 2006).

2006 signaled a welcome return of Roger Powell with the retro-futuristic, groove oriented, Fossil Poets (Inner Knot CD/Vinyl LP). The critically acclaimed release was produced by award winning producer Gary Tanin, who along with Powell, produced the 2009 solo piano offering Blue Note Ridge.

Fossil Poet Records is releasing Blue Note Ridge as a Limited Edition CD through CDBaby as well as digital download by way of iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, and Mindawn (offering a cutting-edge lossless format for superior audio fidelity).
