Australian guitarist, Ben Craven will be delivering his career retrospective release titled "The Single Edits" on March 16th through Ben's own Desert Comb label. While Craven may be best known as an expert in progressive rock music, with many songs pushing past the 10-minute mark, this new album delivers a concise, 40-minute, edited version of some of his more well-known tunes. Beginning with the space-like sonic build-up of "Critical Mass," Ben Craven wastes no time showing off his skills on the guitar. Ben also takes the spotlight with his vocals on the grand feel of "The Remarkable Man" and then invites Star Trek royalty to lend a hand as William Shatner delivers the spoken word lyrics of "Spy In The Sky, Pt. 3." The album continues with the wonderful acoustics of the "Great Divide," before showcasing another glimpse into his progressive rock side with "No Specific Harm." Ben closes out his new album with classic, nostalgic rock tones of "Golden Band" and the exciting frenzy of the "Revenge Of Dr. Komodo."

Singer/songwriter David Lawrence Atkins has returned with a brand new studio album titled "Spitting On A Fish."

Atkins continues with the New Orleans-style jazz of "Too Many Bullets" and the acoustic folk/blues of "Afraid Of Love." David finishes up his latest album with the sixties, pop-swing of "Oh Tonight," the punk-like attitude of "Lighten Up Your Life" and the ukulele sing-along of "Shine On Me."
