John Oswald's 'Grayfolded' is the ultimate version of the Grateful Dead's beloved 'Dark Star'

Warning: The Grateful Dead is the focus of this story, so there will certainly be skeptics from the outset. After all, the San Francisco band, with its extended improvised excursions, is as polarizing a group as there ever has been.

Stormy Mondays | Grateful Dead 1974 Retrospective Part 6

There isn't much left to cover in this Grateful Dead 1974 retrospective , but we certainly have to touch on the topic of "Seastones," formerly known as "Phil & Ned." Phil Lesh and Ned Lagin released an album of weird-out early electronic music by that name in 1974, and the duo often played a mini set of ten to twenty minutes between sets one and two, giving the assembled masses a dose of abrasive strangeness.

New Recordings: Maroon 5; Brad Paisley; John Oswald/Grateful Dead

After the commercially successful but artistically empty Overexposed, Maroon 5 gets their mojo back on V. The band is hitting on all cylinders on this more organic album. It opens with the strong, springy, reggae-tinged rocker "Maps" and closes with the affecting ballad "My Heart Is Open," a duet between Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani.
