A record that has turned out to be his highest selling album in Ireland since Charttrack started compiling the charts in 1996, Americana finds Neil Young & Crazy Horse taking their inspiration from classic American folk songs for their first album together in nine years. With material ranging from the 1800s to the mid-twentieth century, it's an ambitious effort that proves the songs are just as poignant and powerful today as the day they were written. State has five copies of the album to give away. To enter just tell us the name of the [...]
It's always hard to follow up a breakthrough records, but Japandroids have not only met any expectations that may have been placed on them, they've set themselves to break out to a bigger audience that no one, even the band themselves, may have ever expected them to reach. Although we're only halfway through the year, early reviews suggest that Celebration Rock is looking to be near the top of many critics' Best Of lists. Bigger, tighter, louder, and overall better than their already-stellar 2009 debut, Post-Nothing, the Canadian garage-rock duo take their songwriting to [...]
Neil Young and Crazy Horse are back together, and have two albums planned for released this year. The first, called Americana , sees the godfathers of grunge taking on an assortment of classic folk standards like "Gallows Pole," "Clementine," and "Oh Susannah."

Young has a voice built for great folk lyrics, and Crazy Horse [...]

The album will be available in FLAC, CD, and 180-gram vinyl [...]
