Spinning directly out of UNCANNY X-MEN comes the most important new X-Book in years-GENERATION HOPE! When Hope Summers returned from the future she triggered the rebirth of the mutant gene. Five lights appeared on Cerebra and five mutants' powers came to life, but their activations have been chaotic and dangerous, nearly killing each of them. It was only the touch of Hope that saved their lives. With Rogue and the four new mutants who were gathered in UNCANNY X-MEN, Hope heads to Japan to join Cyclops, Wolverine and the fifth light. But will this new light be a hero or a villain? Only KIERON GILLEN (THOR) and SALVA ESPIN (SAVAGE SHE-HULK) know! --
There is a siren inside of songs of Katherine Rondeau on her latest release, New Hope Chateau. Her vocals are flames for fluttering moths of tenderness (“When I’m with You”), inspiration (“Raise Up Your Hands”), and fortitude (“Again”) as Katherine Rondeau draws the line (“Boyish Charms”), hangs on tight (“Off the Rails”), and asks questions of the future (“What Would You Do”). Strength and Soul in the words and a Folk musical backing is the framework for New Hope Chateau. Katherine Rondeau is a natural performer, putting the same presence on studio tracks as her live shows at Philadelphia Folk Festival (2015, 2016), and World Café Live! (Philadelphia, PA). She shows influences by putting the Katherine Rondeau brand on version of tunes from Janis Joplin (“Turtle Blues”), Melanie (“Leftover Wine”), and Odetta (“Hit or Miss”).
Tom Waits, raconteur, poet, singer, pianist, writer, genius and one-man revivalist of a bygone world, in a 1978 concert from Austin, Texas. Hear the emerging star, strikingly young and self-assured in his compelling skid-row persona, as he takes us on a series of amazing journeys, at once comic and poignant, and full of the down-at-heels characters only Mr. Waits can bring to life. In songs like "On The Nickel," "I Wish I Was In New Orleans," "Romeo Is Bleeding," "Small Change" and others, Waits conjures up an entire universe all his own. One of the most idiosyncratic writers and performers is captured at an early moment in his amazing and influential career. Recorded Live on December 5, 1978 in Austin, Texas.
