THE BASEBALL PROJECT to release 3RD on Yep Roc...

Written by

Again, I sit here thinking Spring. The fact is, that in just three days, MLB pitchers and catchers will report for Spring Training, and that means that baseball season will soon be on the way. Now comes word that on March 25, THE BASEBALL PROJECT will release 3rd, their... well, third album of baseball-themed songs. There's 17 all-new tracks on-deck, each covering subjects such as BABE RUTH, HANK AARON, and even LENNY DYKSTRA, all accompanied by a bio penned by journalist Dan Epstein. Tracklisting and details below...

As I sit here at 11:50pm on a Tuesday night, typing this from my office at Rock Father HQ, I look outside at the falling snow and can only wish for Spring. Knowing that it's coming, it's pleasant news to hear that THE BAD PLUS will release their version of Igor Stravinsky's THE RITE OF SPRING, performed as only THE BAD PLUS can - as an ambitious piano/bass/drums trio. Personally, I can't wait to hear what they do with it. Check out the cover art and tracklisting below...

From out of nowhere comes this little tune that you absolutely need to hear, especially if you're into (or not into) the work of TRENT REZNOR or his main creation, NINE INCH NAILS. "This is a Trent Reznor Song" comes from Freddy Scott, whose work I was not familiar with until this landed in my Facebook feed about 20 minutes ago. Yes, this is a parody, but it's also pretty damn endearing. Listen to the song in the soundcloud player below... and crank it up!

The 56th GRAMMY Awards airs tonight at 8pm/7c on CBS, and if predictions are your thing, you might be interested to know what Spotify thinks of tonight's field. While I'm of the mindset that the GRAMMYS are still vastly out-of-touch and largely unimportant (they good straighten out, but choose not to), it's still fun to take a stab at what the GRAMMY voters have picked. Utilizing stream data from their user base, the Spotify team has issued their picks in some key categories, this coming after correctly predicting the Record of the Year and Album of the Year wins in 2013. Check out their 2014 picks and notes below...
