Hot Buttered Rum, the progressive five-piece bluegrass band out of San Francisco, California, is gearing up for a big year. With almost two decades under their belts, in 2018, Hot Buttered Rum will release their sixth studio album, Lonesome Panoramic. A follow up to 2010’s Limbs Akimbo, their self-titled release in 2014, and the trio of EPs released as The Kite & The Key in 2015 and 2016, Lonesome Panoramic was self-produced by the band; recorded at Panoramic House Studio in Stinson Beach, California, along the Panoramic Highway; and is slated for a July 20th release this summer.As Nat Keefe, Hot Buttered Rum’s vocalist and guitarist, explained in a press release, “Lonesome Panoramic is the result of different thematic and stylistic threads that Butter has been chasing over the years: driving uptempo string band tunes, layers of dark lonesome drum grooves, letting things go, and embracing what we have.”Hot Buttered Rum has become a staple of the progressive bluegrass scene with their quick-paced and fiery blend of bluegrass, folk, rock, and country. With the addition of drums in 2008, the group cemented itself as a music festival favorite, regularly performing nationally renowned events like Telluride Bluegrass, Newport Folk, Jam Cruise, Bonnaroo, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Northwest String Summit, and many, many more. Furthermore, the band’s hearty resume has led to some truly astounding collaborations, including playing with the likes of Phil Lesh, Chris Thile, Brett Dennen, Kyle Hollingsworth, and others and being named “The Official Bluegrass Band of the San Francisco Giants.”With the release of Lonesome Panoramic on the horizon, Hot Buttered Rum has been generous enough to share with us a sneak peek at what to expect from their latest studio effort, which features cameo collaborations from ALO’s Zach Gill and Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz, The Coffis Brothers, and Rainbow Girls.As Nat Keefe, Hot Buttered Rum’s vocalist and guitarist, noted to Live For Live Music,I wrote “Country Tunes & Love Songs” with the Coffis Brothers, Kellen and Jamie. To me, the opening chord progression invokes the subject matter of the song, so it wrote itself. Sometimes, good songs come from when you aren’t swinging for the fences, you just put a good swing on the ball and it finds a gap. We ended up producing it with a lot of strummy twelve-string guitar, with the memory of Tom Petty whispering in our ears.“Country Tunes & Love Songs” is the third track on the upcoming Lonesome Panoramic, marking one of the few songs on the new album on which the band’s multi-instrumentalist Erik Yates plays the dobro, rather than his trusty banjo. Tapping into the band’s more rock-oriented Americana side, the mid-tempo tune finds Keefe vocally accompanied by Kellen and Jamie Coffis (of The Coffis Brothers), who offer up blissful vocal harmonies.You can take a listen to the Live For Live Music premiere of Hot Buttered Rum’s “Country Tunes & Love Songs” below. “Country Tunes & Love Songs” will be formally released on the band’s upcoming album, Lonesome Panoramic, which is due out on July 20th via independent release.

Erik ten Hag’s side duly fell behind inside the opening minute at home to Utrecht on Sunday, but they bounced back to win 4-1 with Dusan Tadic scoring twice.That, combined with a 1-0 defeat for rivals PSV Eindhoven at AZ Alkmaar, means a record 34th league title, and a first since 2014, looks to be in the bag.Ajax are three points clear of PSV and have a far superior goal difference ahead of the final round of games. The Amsterdam side go to second-bottom De Graafschap on Wednesday while PSV host Heracles.– Neymar back in mood –It has been a frustrating few months for Neymar but the Brazilian was back to something like his best for Paris Saint-Germain.The world’s most expensive player scored one goal — unusually with his head — and set up another as PSG won 2-1 at Angers, a return to form for a side who had won just once in their previous seven outings.He can now look forward to the Copa America on home soil next month, with his club season over. Neymar is suspended for the last two games of the campaign, and finishes with 15 goals in only 17 league appearances in PSG’s run to the title.– Pistol Piatek misses mark –AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek’s sharp-shooting skills were missing again as he went a fifth game without scoring in a 1-0 win at Fiorentina.A goal in Tuscany would have seen the player dubbed the “Pistol” and “Robocop” match a feat achieved by Juventus’s John Charles in 1957-58 and Brazilian Ronaldo with Inter in 1997-98 by scoring against 15 different teams in his first Serie A season.Piatek was plying his trade in Poland with Cracovia last year, but after a record-breaking start to the season with Genoa, he joined Milan during the winter transfer window for 35 million euros.The 23-year-old has eight goals for Milan, added to his 13 for Genoa. That leaves him equal with Cristiano Ronaldo on 21 overall, five behind Serie A top scorer Fabio Quagliarella of Sampdoria.“Piatek shouldn’t worry about his goals, because he started the season so well at Genoa and then with us, he doesn’t need to worry,” insisted coach Gennaro Gattuso, whose side are fifth.Share on: WhatsApp Paris Saint-Germain. PHOTO via @PSG_EnglishParis, France | AFP | Bayern Munich missed the chance to wrap up the Bundesliga title, but Ajax bounced back to close in on the Dutch crown, while Neymar offered a timely reminder of his quality at the weekend.Here, AFP Sport takes a look at five main talking points from Europe as the end of the season approaches:– Bundesliga title race still crazy –Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac called the Bundesliga title race “crazy” two weeks ago, and it got even crazier on Saturday.Kovac’s side missed the chance to wrap up the title a week early as they were held 0-0 at RB Leipzig, and rivals Borussia Dortmund battled to a 3-2 win over Fortuna Duesseldorf.After returning to within two points of the leaders on Saturday, Dortmund are now convinced they can pull off a mini-miracle on the last day.“Everything is to play for, we firmly believe we can do it,” team director Sebastian Kehl told Sky.Dortmund need to beat Borussia Moenchengladbach next Saturday and hope that Bayern slip up at home to Eintracht Frankfurt.– Barcelona fans vote with feet –Barcelona’s first game after being knocked out of the Champions League by Liverpool came at home to Getafe. Supporters welcomed their team back with a scattering of whistles before kick-off at the Camp Nou, where there were swathes of empty seats.A crowd of 57,000 was one of the lowest of the campaign for Barca, although the fact they have already wrapped up the Spanish title was partly to blame for that.Arturo Vidal’s finish and a late own-goal gave Barcelona a 2-0 win, with the defeat for Getafe seriously damaging their hopes of Champions League qualification as they dropped out of the top four to be replaced by Valencia.“It was a difficult game for all of us,” said Sergio Busquets. “We are trying to heal a wound that isn’t small.”– Ajax show resolve –After the agony of their Champions League semi-final defeat against Tottenham Hotspur, Ajax fans may have feared that the inevitable hangover would damage their team’s chances of winning the Dutch title.
