To Sample & Hold – A Benefit Tribute To The Songs Of Neil Young is exactly what it sounds like. The Albany indie-folk band Blue Ranger corralled a bunch of likeminded artists to cover Shakey’s songs in support of Free Food Fridge Albany, an organization that combats food insecurity in the area. Among the performers who contributed songs are Another Michael, Whitney Ballen, Ben Seretan, Thank You Thank You (whose recent single you should really check out), and several current and former members of Pinegrove including Evan Stephens Hall, Sam Skinner, and Jodi (aka Nick Levine, whose recent debut album you should really check out). There are 27 genre-jumping tracks in total, all of them reinterpretations of Neil Young songs. Stream the comp below and consider buying it here to help feed hungry people.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse will release their new album Barn, recorded in a restored barn in the Rocky Mountains, this December. After sharing opening track “Song Of The Seasons” along with the album announcement, today the band have shared the album’s second song, “Heading West.” It’s a gracefully swaying roughshod rocker with all the requisite chunky distorted guitar and high-pitched warbling about railroad tracks, and if you like Neil Young you’re probably going to enjoy it.
