Tal Wilkenfeld has released another video featuring music from her upcoming album, “Love Remains,” which is set to drop on March 15th. This live performance of “Killing Me” was filmed at The Who’s ‘The Who Hits 50!’ tour stop at TD Garden in Boston, MA in 2016.

Linda Ronstadt released “Mad Love” thirty-nine years ago, which coincided with a live concert special for HBO. Here, the band performs the smash hit “You’re No Good.” Bob Glaub’s buttery P-bass groove sits right in the pocket, and he even takes a tasty solo.

I was elated to hear that Consider the Source has a new album coming out this year, and even more excited to see this first single. “You Are Literally A Metaphor” is due out on March 1st, and if “Enemies of MagicK” is any indication, it’s going to be epic.
