Patrick Carney Producing New Sheepdogs Album Source: Rolling Stone Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney is producing the new Atlantic Records album by the Sheepdogs, winners of Rolling Stone’s recent Choose the Cover contest. The as-yet-untitled album will be co-produced by Rolling Stone contributing editor Austin Scaggs with mixing by Tchad Blake and is tentatively scheduled for a late spring release. “We’re recording live in the same room with no headphones,” reports Sheepdogs frontman Ewan Currie. “Pat’s got great ideas and we all seem to be on the same level.” That would make sense - Carney’s band is on our current cover. Damn good news.

Ask Rolling Stone music critic ...
Ask Rolling Stone music critic Austin Scaggs what he thinks of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, and thatâ€™s what youâ€™ll hear.
Well, thatâ€™s the short version, anyway.
, an eight-time â€˜Rooâ€™er himself â€" soon to be nine-time â€˜Roo veteran when this weekend is over â€" has been to late-night sets Kanye West and LCD Soundsystem, wandered the campgrounds inebriated on more than music and taken the time to ride the Ferris wheel.
â€œYou feel like you are a million miles from the cities,â€� said Scaggs
, explaining why the festival his
magazine has called â€œThe Bestâ€� has been able to bring 80,000-plus people to Manchester, Tenn. for 10 years.
â€œYou feel like you are in your own world,â€� he
said. â€œItâ€™s the middle of nowhere.
The remote location helps get people into that atmosphere.â€�
Scaggs has worked for Rolling Stone for 12 years, most of which it seems has been spent covering Bonnaroo.
views on the festival are mostly in the positive.
has managed to find more to enjoy about the festival than most.
likes watching bands climb the musical ladder from nobody stages to headliner status; he
wanders the campgrounds, somehow took positive from the Kanye West debacle of 2008, praises the festival for its diversity and says the guests are as good as it gets.
Perhaps a sin to hardcore Bonnaroo faithful of the first year or two, Scaggs
isnâ€™t a jam-band type.
And despite the moans from a few original bonnarites, the decision of festival organizers to take a turn towards more diversity only made economical sense, Scaggs
â€œThe only bad thing is the heat,â€� said Scaggs
, emphasizing last year may have caused a few more sunburns on festival-goers than years past. â€œLast year in particular was overwhelmingly hot for most of the weekend.
Once again, Scaggs
is drawing from experience when it comes to positive vibes and word-of-mouth promotion.
