The Record Company - Ball And Chain

Thursday, time for a cover.

"Ball And Chain" (also "Ball 'n' Chain" or "Ball & Chain") is a blues song written and recorded by American blues artist Big Mama Thornton. Although her recording did not appear on the record charts, the song has become one of Thornton's best-known, largely due to performances and recordings by Janis Joplin.

Big Mama Thornton's "Ball and Chain" is included on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame list of the "500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll".

Grammy-nominated Los Angeles-based rock band THE RECORD COMPANY are set to return with Side Project, an EP featuring covers of some of their favorite, most influential artists. Produced by bassist Alex Stiff, the record is set for release May 19 via Concord Records; listen to the band's cover of the Big Mama Thornton classic "Ball And Chain", below.

"The pandemic forced us to try an entirely different approach to our process, with everyone working from home," the band explains. "With 'Ball And Chain,' we used some really non-traditional home methods and ended up finding some new sounds we may not have found otherwise."

"Side Project is what happens when three guys who have always been in bands finish their record, are locked away from each other, and are told they need to make more 'content,'" they add. "So, we took songs we love, fed them up, cut them up and twisted them around, until we loved it and felt like a band again."

Zombi - Black Forest

ZOMBI returns with their new EP, "Liquid Crystal"!

A five track EP, "Liquid Crystal" sees Steve Moore and A.E. Paterra continue to explore the very melodic sensibilities, synthscapes, and driving rhythmic section that propelled the band upon the release of their latest critically acclaimed full-length, 2020. Tracks such as "Black Forest" finds the band leaning on heavy grooves alongside soaring leads, hear it below while the opening and second single "Mangler" oozes with ominous synths as crescendos build and build.

"Liquid Crystal" releases May 14, 2021, pre-order at Relapse Records

Producing work that is epic in concept, sound, and artistic approach, the masterminds and multi-instrumentalists behind ZOMBI have re-imagined the architecture of progressive rock and dynamic instrumentals by carving a niche in underground music distinctly their own. The band's signature sound is deceptively lush considering its two man skeleton crew ensemble.

Today's tune "Black Forest", taken from the upcoming EP "Liquid Crystal", enjoy!
