I like how today’s recording artists promote their new albums with video content, especially if when it’s a documentary-like look behind the scenes. This spot for Revelator, the new album from Tedeschi Trucks Band, to pick one recent example, does a good job of inviting fans in to the band’s world. David Fricke of Rolling […]
